"The Palace in the Glen", Gleneagles hotel spa is one of Scotland's premier locations for luxury therapy treatments - as well as for golf!
The Gleneagles hotel spa is part of a Five Red Star golf resort set in 850 acres of breathtaking Perthshire scenery. Designed in the style of a French chateau, with landscaped grounds inspired by 18th century landscape gardener Capability Brown, the venue's luxury is matched by its relaxed informality. Located halfway between the cities of Perth and Sterling, in central inland Scotland. Edinburgh and Glasgow airports are less than 50 miles, or an hour's drive, away, and Gleneagles has its own station, on the main London to Inverness line.
The wide range of treatments available at Gleneagles hotel spa draw on both western and oriental techniques, with emphasis on a natural, holistic approach to health and wellbeing. There are body and facial treatments designed for both men and women - because everybody likes to relax and enjoy healthy skin. Facilities also include a hair salon, and a full range of beauty treatments for women include make-up, tinting, waxing and shaping. There's even the opportunity for mother and daughter to visit together, with a special range of Little Miss treatments for ages 6 - 16, including Little Miss Manicure, and Teen Make-up Application. For more active guests seeking to unwind and rejuvenate after enjoying a round of golf, or one of the many other outdoor pursuits on offer at the resort, a range of therapies is available to ease the stresses and strains of the day, including sports deep tissue massage, Thai massage, Swedish massage, Reflexology and Reiki.
The resort celebrated its 80th anniversary in June 2004, and hosted the G8 summit of world leaders in July 2005.
