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.
