Last year, feature writers Patricia-Ann and Rachel visited The Coach House Spa at Kinross House to try some of their amazing treatments.
This is what they had to say about their treatments…
Rachel tried ‘the ultimate experience’
My friends and family have always joked about my inability to relax; I just love to be busy and am practically always glued to my phone. That’s why, when picking my treatment, The Ultimate Experience really stood out to me: it offers three uninterrupted hours of complete pampering. Sign me up! The 180 minutes of undisrupted relaxation was as idyllic as it sounds. The treatment starts with a body scrub (I chose the invigorating ginger and lime) which leaves your skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated. A full body massage follows (so blissful I drifted off to sleep), before a heavenly facial complete with a scalp massage whilst the miracle face mask worked its magic. I could practically feel my stress melt away and I was so impressed with the facial; my skin was utterly transformed overnight. One thing’s for sure – I could certainly get used to the VIP treatment…
The ultimate experience costs £165
Patricia-Ann tried the ‘body firming detox’
For the first time in my life I’ve started working out regularly, but despite my best intentions a couple of spin classes aren’t going to do much to bust my cellulite and stretch marks forever. That’s why the Body Firming Detox Treatment caught my eye – it helps to stimulate circulation, tone the skin and remove toxins from the body, all things that will help my skin catch up with the rest of my body’s new fitness regime. One thing I was a little naively squeamish about in this treatment was the acid peel, but then I thought, ‘Well, beauty is pain, right?’ Wrong. Apparently, beauty is the most relaxing 90 minutes of my life. The acid peel did not burn my skin off as I expected, and in fact was very pleasant. A full body massage (conducted with a slimming serum to sculpt the body) was heavenly, and after just one treatment, I felt like I could see results. Totally worth it for brides-to-be who want a pre-wedding boost.
The body firming detox costs £120, or £400 for four sessions
Don’t forget that…
The Coach House Spa at Kinross House has a relaxation room, hydrotherapy pool and sauna, as well as a Tartan Bar snug area with a mezzanine level boasting view over Loch Leven. All treatments and packages include use of the facilities for two hours (wit ha minimum treatment spend of £35 per person).
