We suspect that the ultimate ambition for most human beings is to turn into a pulsing orb of pure bliss and drift serenely into the sky.
Yet how can this be achieved, we hear you ask?
Two words: spa day.
More specifically, today’s Big Deal for a spa day for one or two from DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro. It also includes a two course lunch and a chance to bask in the leisure facilities.
Treat yourself to a pamper day
This deal invites you to a day of total relaxation, including two luscious spa treatments and a two course lunch with a soft drink.
Afterwards you can unwind and enjoy the hotel’s Livingwell leisure facilities such as the seventeen metre swimming pool, gym, steam room, sauna and bubble pool.
The deal can be for one or two people, meaning you can either make it a solo escape or pair up with your best friend or significant other.
Two tranquil treatments
You will be spoiled from top to toe with this ultra pampering packaging of two treatments for face and body:
Elemis superfood facial — this is a nutritional boost rich in superfoods and essential minerals designed to pack stressed, dull skin with energising, detoxifying actives. It will leave skin plumper, radiant and lit up with good health.
Elemis deep tissue back, neck and shoulder massage — this flowing massage works deeper into any tension, encouraging optimum circulation. Your therapist will select an aromatic oil according to your needs, from muscle pain to stress relief, and from relaxation to balance.
This deal is available Sunday to Thursday until the end of August.
Two course lunch
Your package will include a two course lunch with a soft drink served in the hotel’s elegant Stuart Lounge. Decorated in soothing creams and purples, this dining spot has ‘relaxed, low-key luxury’ written all over it.
Oh, and did we mention that the menu was designed by Nick Nairn?
Although dishes can be updated seasonally, you can expect starters such as Nick’s original cure smoked Scottish salmon, the cured meat platter and the spinach & Mull cheddar croquette.
Mains might include the chargrilled minute steak ciabatta, the panko-crumbed haddock and the Chiang Mai vegetable curry.
Desserts could feature the pave of dark chocolate with hazelnut ice cream, the salted caramel fondant and the white chocolate & lemon posset.
The four-star DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro sits in ten acres of landscaped grounds and offers plenty of peace and tranquillity.
While it feels a long way from the bustle of the cities, it is within an easy 45-minute drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh.
Easy to get there and gorgeous when you arrive. What more could you ask for?
A recent visitor to the Hilton Dunblane Hydro had this praise to share on TripAdvisor:
‘The pool was lovely — like swimming in a warm bath. There is a hot tub, steam room and sauna and a separate area is roped off if you want to “lane swim”. I did not use the fitness room, but it looked well equipped.’
Heavenly spa day at the Hilton
If you feel that you are due a day of indulgence, then treat yourself to today’s Big Deal for a spa day from DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro. Suitable for one or two people, you can make it a solo getaway or a paired escape.
With two spa treatments, a chic lunch and a day pass for the leisure facilities included, you will surely be floating on air by the end of the day. It would also make a fabulous birthday gift.
