New luxury partnership at leading Scots spa

Fairmont St Andrews has announced an exciting new partnership with leading wellbeing brand, ESPA, as part of its extensive spa and wellbeing offering.

The five-star venue, perched on the clifftops of St Andrews, has revamped its popular gym facilities, and introduced a brand-new product and treatment list from ESPA.

Deemed one of the most prestigious spa brands in the world, ESPA was founded in the UK almost 30 years ago, and is focused on delivering effective, natural products and treatments to aid skin, body and mind.

Its products and treatments are designed with integrity, using carefully selected blends of plant extracts, marine actives and essential oils, which work in synergy to deliver a calming, restorative effect.

The 30-strong leisure team at Fairmont St Andrews, including its experienced spa therapists, have been given a four-week course of new, specialised training by ESPA in its holistic wellness experiences and treatments.

They will be delivering a significant list of treatments from ESPA, as well as other world-leading product houses such as Ishga, including locally-themed massages, touch therapy, facial and relaxation therapies, all suited to the guest’s every need or mood.

Recently named the Best Spa in Scotland by the Good Spa Awards 2021, Fairmont St Andrews offers ten luxury treatment rooms, 16-metre pool, modern fitness suite and a range of hydrotherapy experiences.

Open daily to residents, members and non-members, the Fairmont fitness suite has also had a revamp for the new year, with the addition of new, state of the art Life Fitness cardiovascular equipment – with smart watch connectivity to track fitness goals – as well as an extensive range of weights equipment and 10 top of the range resistance machines.

The leisure team also offers 20 instructor-led exercise classes per week, as well as personal training and fitness programmes.
