Malvern Spa Hotel
Guest rating: 8.4
Address: Grovewood Road, Malvern, England.
Bringing a rich heritage as a spa town to its varied treatments, The Malvern Spa Hotel boasts a 20m 35°C indoor-outdoor hydrotherapy pool. The waters are locally sourced, taken from 200m below the ground, and form the basis of the signature Malvern Water Cure. While sampling this treatment, which has been offered in the area since 1842, guests can also enjoy a foot spa, four thermal rituals and cold therapies.
Treatments on offer include body and Indian head massages, facials and stress reduction therapy. There are also a bespoke series of treatments for men, including deep tissue massages, manicures and skin purification.
If you like to stay connected (and make your friends just a little jealous) then good news – the Malvern has wireless internet access throughout. Just don’t drop your phone in the water.
Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa
Guest rating: 9.1
Address: 1 Festival Square, Haymarket, Edinburgh
With all the culture of Edinburgh on the doorstep, you’ll be spoiled for choice with what to do first. But should you experience the darker side of Scotland’s famously temperamental weather, come into the Sheraton’s Grand Hotel’s One Spa for a different kind of drenching.
Perched above the rooftops of Edinburgh, you’ll be able to enjoy views of the castle from the hydropool, stretch your limbs in the gym or sample one of the many treatments on offer. These include massages, wraps, chakra balancing hot stones and exfoliation. One Spa prides itself on providing individually tailored treatments which blend the ancient and modern, and this includes treatments specially designed for men – including fitness massages and men’s facials.
