Spa days are not a new concept. After a hard week spent subduing the Gauls, building aqueducts and inventing talent shows (Britain’s Got Gladiators was a massive hit), the Romans liked nothing better than a day at the baths.
A couple of thousand years later and not much has changed. People still go to the spa to relax. It’s just that you don’t see too many people slipping out of a toga in the changing room these days.
Today’s Big Deal is for a luxury spa day in the stunning setting of Mar Hall. A five star golf and spa resort, Mar Hall is just ten minutes from Glasgow airport, but, tucked away in its own 240 acre woodland estate, it feels a million miles from the stress of the city.
Originally a baronial mansion, Mar Hall is home to the only Aveda Destination Spa in the UK.
Designed using elements of ayurvedic traditions, it features eight treatment rooms and relaxation areas. Staffed with expert therapists, the treatments at the spa are based on Aveda’s holistic spa philosophy.
As part of the spa day, the therapists will ask some simple questions which will enable them to tailor your treatments to your individual needs.
All the spa treatments use Aveda’s finest oils and products sourced with environmental consciousness from around the world.
The deal is for:
An Aveda luxury facial with Aveda Revitalising Eye treatment (Treatment time 45 minutes)
Light lunch in the Spa Café (drinks are not included)
The full use of facilities (between 9am and 5pm) including the 20m eco-pool; the poolside beds; steam rooms; saunas and gym.
Bathrobe and slippers
If you want to give yourself a day of pampering in luxury’s lap then today’s Big Deal is:
