Spa day: Blythswood Square

Spa day: Blythswood Square

As soon as you step through the doors time magically seems to slow down and you begin to relax. This is my second visit to Blythswood Square Spa and I would highly recommend it if you’re looking to enjoy a relaxing day with friends.

When we arrived we started our day with a glass of prosecco while we filled in our consultations forms and decided what treatments we wanted.

Before heading to the spa we decided to grab a quick bit to eat. They got a good light bites menu or if you fancy it there afternoon teas look amazing. I went with the jenga chips and truffle mayo which was yummy.

When you head down to the spa area you’re given flip flops, towel and robe.  Going on a Saturday I was worried the thermal experience would be really busy. I was really pleased that it wasn’t there wasn’t a lot of people there at all.
The thermal experience has a sauna, crystal steam room, sauna, tepidarium, hydro pool & vitality pool. I really enjoy the pool, hydro pool and tepidarium. I never last long in a sauna, there always a little bit too hot for me!

One of the treatments Blythswood is known for is it seaweed baths, so I decided to give it a go.  The treatment lasts around 30 mins and costs £30. You go to the bath room in the spa, where the bath will be ready for you. The idea is to lie under the seaweed, which did feel a bit strange to begin with.

The treatment is really detoxifying and I found I needed to drink a lot of water during the bath. I did find it a bit unnerving hearing people walking past, while I was lying in the bath. But I do have to say my skin felt great the next day so I would do it again.
I do love a good spa day as it is basically enforced relaxation and Blythswood is really relaxing but it is a bit expensive so good for a treat or special occasion.
