So, what exactly is the Christmas gift that keeps on giving?
In two words – spa day.
Because the gift receiver gets the anticipation of the day, the actual experience of it and then that lovely tingly pampered feeling afterwards.
Today’s Big Deal for a spa experience at the four star Marine Hotel in Troon would make a brilliant present for someone. Plus, as it can be for one or two people, you could join them – just a thought.
A spa day with scenic views overlooking the sea to the Isle of Arran – seriously, does it get much better than that?
The Elemis Spa Day includes a two course lunch, a choice of two 25 minute treatments, a glass of fizz and full use of the leisure club.
This means there will be plenty of time to drift around in the heated pool, which happens to have spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde.
In fact, we wrote about the spa just last year – have a look here.
This offer is available seven days a week until 30th March 2019, with a £20 per person supplement for visits on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
It will include a complimentary robe, slippers and towels.
Choice of packages
This Big Deal on a spa day is very flexible as you have four choices in total.
Plus as there are options for one or two people, it is ideal for either a solo me-time escape or a special treat for two.
All options will include a two course lunch with glass of fizz and full use of the leisure facilities.
Option one is for one person to have two 25 minute treatments.
Option two is for two people to each have two 25 minute treatments.
Option three is for one person to have two speciality treatments – one 55 minute, and one 25 minute.
Option four is for two people to each have two speciality treatments – one 55 minute, and one 25 minute.
Choice of treatments
For options one and two, guests can choose from the following:
Elemis taster facial; back, neck & shoulder massage; scalp massage; Elemis feet or hand ritual; file & polish for fingers or toes.
For options three and four, guests can choose two speciality treatments from the following:
One 55-minute treatment – either an Elemis Garden of England rose massage or an Elemis mineral boost massage.
One 25-minute treatment – ether an Elemis taster facial, tranquility scalp massage or Jessica file & polish for fingers or toes.
The Elemis spa at The Marine Hotel is staffed by a team of therapists who are passionate about the brand’s high-end skincare products.
Every groundbreaking Elemis formula is an innovative blend of science combined with the chemistry of nature, carefully crafted by a dedicated team of explorers, scientists and skincare experts.
In other words, expect the blissed out tingles of a truly luxurious spa treatment.
Pool with a view
Both options include full use of the leisure facilities, which include a heated indoor pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and spa pool.
Seriously, what better way to unwind after a spa treatment than in a warm pool with a view of the Firth of Clyde?

Pampering Christmas gift
An Elemis Spa Day at a seaside hotel has ‘perfect Christmas present’ written all over it in sparkly gold letters.
What’s great about this Big Deal is that it can either be for one or two people, making it the perfect gift for your partner or a special couple. You can also add on luxuries like extra treatments.
Surprise someone with this and you will definitely be giving Santa a run for his money this year.
