ST. ANDREWS, KINGDOM OF FIFE, SCOTLAND, UK — Fairmont St Andrews’ luxurious spa complex has been nominated in the Supreme Signature Treatment category for the Good Spa Awards. The resort’s unique Celtic Harmony Purifying Ritual has been short listed in as one of the top five signature treatments in the UK in the prestigious awards organized by the Good Spa Guide, the fully comprehensive, independent guide to Britain’s top spas.
The 90-minute purifying ritual begins with a geranium-and-pine scrub before a detoxifying massage and body wrap with essences of local juniper, cypress and lavender. Once in the wrap, essential essences are massaged into the feet and neck, and the entire treatment is synchronized to Celtic music.
The Good Spa Guide’s review said: “I loved this powerful, invigorating treatment. I was whisked away to an authentic Celtic world far from the madding crowds. “My heavenly massage provided strong, confident strokes as my therapist eased away my troubles to the fragrant dialogue.
I left feeling purified, invigorated and very much alive – just call me Braveheart!” Winners of the Good Spa Awards 2011 will be announced on July 1. Fairmont St Andrews’ luxurious spa complex was greatly enhanced as part of a £17m renovation of the five-star resort which increased its size to 12 chic treatment rooms – including dedicated rooms for couples and small groups.
Following its visit to the resort, Good Spa Guide awarded the spa a maximum five bubble rating having assessed various criteria including customer care, cleanliness, quality of treatments and value for money.
