So, what exactly is the gift that keeps on giving?
In two words – spa day.
Because you get the anticipation of it, 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 either one or two people, you could join them – just a thought.
The spa day includes a two course lunch, a choice of two treatments, a glass of bubbly and full use of the leisure club, so there will be plenty of time to drift around in the heated pool, which happens to have spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde.
We wrote about the spa just last year – have a look here.
With availability from until 30th November, it’s the ideal way to chill out.
The spa recently became an Elemis venue and the therapists are enthusiastic about using the company’s luxurious skincare products.
Every ground-breaking Elemis formula is an innovative blend of science with the chemistry of nature, carefully crafted by a dedicated team of explorers, scientists and skincare experts.
Pool with a view
Available seven days a week, option one is for one person to have a spa experience with the choice of one of two 55 minute treatments plus one of three 22 minute treatments, a glass of bubbly as well as a two course spa lunch.
Option two is for two people to have the spa experience.
Both options include full use of the leisure facilities: heated indoor pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and a spa pool.
