Manhattan’s skyline is fine and Paris in spring is not to be sniffed at.
For us, nothing beats the sight of the sun setting over Scotland’s spectacular West Coast – especially when seen through the cosy steam of an outdoor hot tub.
Enjoy beautiful vistas with today’s Big Deal on a two night break at the Oban Bay Hotel & Spa.
With Oban just over a couple of hours drive from Glasgow and under three hours from Edinburgh, today’s offer is ideal for an easy, end of year getaway.
Of course, Oban is also the gateway to the islands so today’s Big Deal could be used as a refreshing stop before journeying further.
Two night break
The Big Deal is for two people to stay two nights in a standard double or twin room at the Oban Bay Hotel with a full Scottish breakfast each morning a 6 course taster menu on the first evening.
You’ll find flat screen TVs with Freeview in all the ensuite bedrooms along with complimentary WiFi.

Fresh & local seafood

Outdoor hot tub
As well as an outdoor hot tub (did we mention its views?), the hotel has a mini-spa which offers treatments such as aromatherapy, reflexology and massage (not included in offer).
Full use of the sauna, steam room and hot tub is also included in the deal, subject to availability.
Alternatively, you could just chill in the spacious sun lounge and gaze at Mull, Kerrera and the Firth of Lorne.
Stretch your legs
If you want to stretch your legs then there is plenty to do in Oban. You could visit Oban Distillery, walk up to McCaig’s Tower or stroll up Pulpit Hill for a superb view out over the town.
Ganavan Sands are not far away and there are loads of opportunities nearby for golf, walking, wildlife spotting and boat trips.
The Oban Bay Hotel & Spa has attracted plenty of positive reviews on TripAdvisor. This recent visitor enjoyed the views, the food and the hot tub:
‘Romantic break away. I stayed here with my boyfriend for a romantic, relaxing night away and I loved every minute of it. The hotel overlooks the bay and we sat in the conservatory for ages just watching the boats come and go. It’s very quiet and very relaxing. The outdoor hot tub was pure bliss :) even with a little chill in the air it was warm and toasty in the tub and the views were breath taking. We had the six course taster menu and every dish was delicious.
I will definitely be returning soon.’
The end of the year can be a blur of festive season preparations.
Take a break from it all with this relaxing Big Deal on a two night stay at the Oban Bay Hotel & Spa.
