A new oasis of calm in the heart of the city

The spa at The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square Hotel is a brand spanking new oasis of calm.

The pool area with sauna and steam room are lovely if you have time.

The spa offers treatments from Oskia and ishga. I plumped for the Signature Oskia Glow Facial, £90 for 80 minutes, promising anti-ageing properties and to leave my mind and body rejuvenated.

My therapist was friendly, explaining exactly how the treatment would progress and enquiring as to the needs of my skin. The facial employs acupressure and massage to aid relaxation, as well as thoroughly cleansing the skin and using steam to open up the pores and increase the efficacy of the organic products.

The choice of a scalp or arm and hand massage made this facial a treat for the whole body.
