New director and renovation for Scotland’s Kohler Water Spa

by Jane Kitchen | 20 Sep 2017

The Kohler Water Spa at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews, Scotland, is undergoing an £8m renovation and will reopen at the end of the year.

Designed by architects Sedley Place, the 2,300sq m (25,000sq ft) spa facility will feature 11 treatment rooms, including two couple’s rooms and two wet treatment rooms with Kohler bathing experiences.

A 20m indoor swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool for therapeutic bathing, steam room for muscular relaxation and detoxification, experience showers, ice fountain, cold plunge pool and a Finnish sauna will also be available, along with a rooftop garden with hot tub.

The new facility will also house a large health and fitness centre with an additional 20m lap pool with hot tub, gym area with resistance stations, a functional fitness space and a group exercise studio. Yoga, Pilates, spinning, circuit training, and instructor-led and virtual classes will be offered.

Kirsty MacCormick has been named director of spa at the AA five-star hotel. MacCormick is founder of The Nail Yard, and was previously director of global spa development for skincare brand Elemental Herbology and corporate director of spa for Onyx Hospitality. She has also held spa director positions with several Mandarin Oriental locations in Asia and began her career with UK-based Champneys Health Resorts.

Known for its plumbing products, Kohler also operates a total of four spas with a focus on hydrotherapy – the other three are in the US. The company opened its latest location in Green Bay, Wisconsin in July, which is the exclusive hotel of the Green Bay Packers' Titletown District.

The Kohler Water Spa at the Old Course Hotel is also currently recruiting for several positions in advance of the spa's reopening, including a spa operations manager, spa therapists, spa receptionists and fitness instructors.
