Handpicked for you – curated deals for 5pm customers
If ‘Twilight’ makes you think of angsty teen vampires moping around an Oregon forest, then we’d like to give you a more positive association with the word.
Like, for instance, by offering you a luxurious Twilight Spa Package in a four star countryside hotel, with an ESPA treatment and two course dinner included.
Today’s Handpicked Deal from the award-winning Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort offers exactly this. With packages for one or two people, you could take your best friend or other half along for the perfect after-dark bliss-out session.
Starlight and spa
There is something incredibly tranquil about an evening spa experience. The Westerwood leisure club is a particularly lovely spot for this, as it has a huge pool with windows overlooking the countryside, meaning you can gaze at the night sky while drifting around in warm water.
Today’s Handpicked Deal for a Twilight Spa Package includes a 25 minute ESPA treatment and two course dinner, as well as full use of the leisure facilities. The deal is available for one or two people.
The Westerwood Hotel is a four star leisure and golf resort set in 120 acres of countryside, so you could arrive early to explore the grounds. Handily, it’s only a twenty minute drive from Glasgow city centre via the M80, meaning zero travel hassles.
Inside, you will find a leisure club decorated in vibrant golds and burgundies that will make you feel like royalty. The club has a range of treatment rooms, including double rooms for two should you want a paired experience. There is also a pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, hot tub, relaxation room, heated loungers and experience showers.
For your 25 minute ESPA treatment you can choose between a massage, express facial, body exfoliation or various other options (please check with the hotel when booking).
This package is available Mondays to Thursdays from 4pm to 9pm, with treatments taking place between 5pm to 8pm.
Guests can receive 20% off any additional treatments, which must be pre-booked ahead of the booking.
Two course meal at The Grill
Before or after your spa experience, you can enjoy a two course dinner in The Grill Restaurant, a casual dining spot overlooking the Campsie and Kilsyth Hills. The restaurant is decorated in warm earth tones with comfy seating, perfect for a relaxing meal.
Menus can change seasonally but dishes tend to be on the creative and flavoursome side. Expect starters such as the bang-bang chicken lollipop with Asian coleslaw, peanut butter, chilli and coconut chicken strip, and the crispy coated brie with chilli and cranberry jam.
Mains might include the baked salmon fillet with pesto mash, green beans and tomato and basil sauce, and the sweet potato and chickpea cake with tomato chutney, salad and vegetable crisps. There are also a range of grill choices, including steaks and burgers.
For dessert, you may want to sample the patriotic Taste of Scotland, which includes Irn Bru ice cream baked alaska, cranachan mousse and deep-fried Mars Bar. Oh, go on. You know you want to.
Previous Westerwood Hotel spa visitors have been posting enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor recently, including the following, edited for length:
‘Facilities lovely and modern… Pool, sauna and steam facilities are good… our massage and facial treatments were amazing and the girls couldn’t have been nicer, felt very at ease and the surroundings are fab! Relaxation room with a selection of herbal teas is a lovely space to relax and chill out at any point.’
‘We went for a swim in the pool and chilled out in the jacuzzi. Then we went for our treatment… I had the facial and the foot cleanse, both were very professional, in a couple’s room, very relaxed. I will deffo be coming back here again! Thank you for making our day special.’
‘Me and my friend came here today as it was a Christmas present for a spa day. We got two treatments (a facial and back message) and then had the high tea after and spent some time in the pool area. The ladies who work there are lovely! We felt very welcomed, and everything was explained well. The treatments were amazing! And because of that we will both definitely be back! It was extremely relaxing.’
Escape for an evening of bliss
Imagine, after a hard day of work, being able to head to the hills (quite literally) for an evening spa experience followed by a relaxing meal. It beats Netflix any night of the week.
Available for one or two people, today’s Handpicked Deal offers a perfect chance to be pampered.
It would also make an excellent birthday surprise for a special someone or a thoughtful anniversary gift for a couple.
