We saw a leaf the other day, so yes it’s happening. Spring is about to be sprung on us and the mood turns to rejuvenation after the months of chunky knits, pies and sofa-based indolence.
If there is a better location for a spot of spa-related spring refreshment than the Carrick Spa at Cameron House on Loch Lomond, well we can’t think of it.
Today’s Big Deal invites couples (or a couple of friends) on a luxurious escape to Loch Lomond, dips you in a rooftop infinity pool, pampers you for a couple of hours in a series of steam rooms, saunas, hydro-therapy pools and experience showers, then covers you in lovely therapeutic mud and… well, you get the picture. We are talking seriously indulgent pampering here.
‘Yeah, smart’ would be a frankly inadequate reaction when you clap eyes on Cameron House, an immaculate baronial mansion set in 108 acres of grounds in Scotland’s original National Park.
The hotel’s Carrick Spa is an appropriately stylish and luxurious spa complex, with classic and contemporary spa facilities.
Today’s Big Deal offers an indulgent two hour spa experience for two, with access to the rooftop infinity pool, a 30 minute Rasul Mud Therapy experience each, and full use of the spa facilities.
The blissful two hour Thermal Experience includes traditional classical and Arabian spa facilities such as a caldarium, tepidarium and hammam steam room, alongside modern innovations such as the infra-red sauna, hydro-therapy pool, aromatherapy steam room and experience showers.
The 30 minute Rasul Mud Therapy experience takes place in the Carrick’s stylish and distinctive mosaic chamber. The treatment cleanses and detoxifies the body.
For an added touch of luxury, head for the rooftop infinity pool where you can look out over Loch Lomond and congratulate yourself that the pool’s water is rather warmer.
The industry seems to be forming an orderly line at the Carrick to bestow awards. In addition to a World Luxury Spa award, the spa has also won three awards in The Spa Traveller Awards 2015 for ‘Best Day Spa: Scotland’, ‘Best for a Spa Day: Scotland’ and ‘Best Spa Break: Scotland’.
Paying customers at the Carrick Spa at Cameron House have also been wowed by the facilities and the treatments. The spa’s 5pm page, with a sky-high rating of 4.6/5, features very positive reviews, including these recent contributions:
‘This experience is an absolute treat for anyone and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The whole venue is outstanding and everyone should experience this at least once in their life. It’s that good. Go on – if you haven’t been – get booking! Enjoy and thanks again to everyone. Outstanding.’
‘Very relaxing and lots of different thermal rooms to suit everyone. Particularly enjoyed the very large hydro pool and relaxing heated stone recliners.’
Today’s Big Deal of a spa indulgence experience at Carrick Spa would be a very welcome surprise gift for a loved one. It’s the perfect combination of relaxation and invigorating spa experiences for any couple, in the most luxurious of settings.
