With the World Cup, Ryder Cup and Commonwealth Games on the horizon, it’s shaping up to be a long summer of sport.
Happily for those of us whose sporting curiosity never developed further than an artistic interest in David Beckham’s pecs, there are alternatives.
Escape the birdies, centre backs and back flips by treating yourself to today’s Big Deal on a spa day at Edinburgh’s four star Carlton Hotel on the North Bridge.
Right in the heart of the city, it would make for a lovely pamper session, especially when combined with a little retail therapy.
Relax, Pamper & Rejuvenate
Designed to help you unwind, this offer is for a spa day with two treatments plus a light lunch in the gorgeous Beauty Rooms at the Carlton Hotel.
Conveniently, a robe and slippers are part of the offer.
Guests can choose from two of the following treatments: a rejuvenating Vital eyes facial; a tranquillity back neck and shoulder massage; mini manicure or a pedicure.
If you would rather experience the soothing deep heat of a hot stone massage then guests are welcome to upgrade for an additional £10.
Guests may also choose to have a one hour treatment instead of 2 × 30 minute treatments for an additional £5.
Offer is available Monday-Thursday.
This indulgent offer also includes a two course lunch. Pampering always feels more fun when there is a delectable lunch to be enjoyed.
The menu changes regularly but typical dishes might be the grilled sea bass with a potato and orange salad or the linguini with cherry tomatoes, roasted red peppers and Parmesan in a creamy sauce.
Finally, the deal includes full use of the spa’s soothing facilities including the gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and spa pool.
If you feel in need of a little TLC then this offer is a great way to treat yourself or indeed a friend who could use a bit of pampering.
What is it to be? Will you spend your summer fighting for control of the remote?
Or is it time to make a slinky pass into the Carlton Hotel and score yourself some well deserved time out with today’s Big Deal?
