Edinburgh’s The Principal opens organic spa
POSTED 11 Apr 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square hotel has opened a new luxury spa and health club offering organic beauty and wellbeing.

The Spa at The Principal features a mood-lit 12m pool, thermal area including sauna and steam rooms plus experience showers. There are also three treatment rooms and a stylish snug for relaxation.

The spa will also be the first in Scotland to offer treatments using Oskia, a range of British organic beauty products. The signature Oskia Glow Facial uses a combination of anti-ageing and glow-inducing techniques to illuminate the skin and leave face, body and mind feeling rejuvenated and skin brighter, hydrated and toned.

Ishga products and treatments using Scottish ingredients from the sea will also be available at The Spa at The Principal.

The new gym offers the latest Intenza Fitness cardio equipment and impulse strength stations along with free weights, a fitness studio and a designated stretch and core space. A ‘Cardio Zone’ includes treadmills, bikes, elliptical trainers, escalate stair climber, and rowing machines. The new gym also includes a custom-built fitness studio, offering the latest in functional equipment including a rig, TRX stations, sprint track, kettle bells and sand bags. The fitness studio offers a range of classes from dynamic Pilates to HIIT, spin, muay thai, and yoga.

The Spa completes The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte’s recent multi-million pound restoration and refurbishment, which also includes bedrooms and suites inspired by the golden age of travel and a sense of Scottish hospitality.

Johan Scheepers, general manager at The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square said: “The new Spa at The Principal is the final piece of the jigsaw and marks the completion of our beautiful new hotel. We’re excited to see everything come together and believe the spa has something different to offer, both for hotel guests and for Edinburgh locals. We offer bespoke, flexible packages, and our opening hours mean the spa and health club is accessible all week, mornings, afternoons and evenings so perfect for corporate memberships.”
