Edinburgh hotel to open first Guerlain Spa in UK

by Aoife Dowling | 30 Nov 2012

The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland is set to launch the UK's first Guerlain Spa on 1 January, following a £24m (US$38m, 30m euro) redevelopment of the property.

Managed by Hilton Worldwide, the hotel's spa will be operated as a beauty spa and be open to both hotel guests and non-guests.

Facilities at the spa include three large treatment rooms, a swimming pool, steamroom, sauna, spa pool and a relaxation space. There will also be a 24-hour health and fitness suite.

Other Waldorf hotels to open a Guerlain Spa include Waldorf Astoria Berlin, which launched in November this year and the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City that opened in 2008.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the French perfume house said treatments would mirror the company's core values: "The treatment menu at the Guerlain spa will reflect luxury, emotion and refinement with a collection of indulgent treatments created using Guerlain products and respecting the origins of the signature massage from 1939 when the brand opened its first 'Institut de Beaute' in Paris.

"Combining pressure point massage and muscular exercise techniques, movements are specifically designed to provide relaxation, as well as a radiant, smoother and a more youthful appearance."

The menu will include signature and personalised facial and body treatments, as well as body sublimination, make up artistry sessions and harmonizing experiences such as reflexology, Chinese massage and aesthetic drainage.

Louise Moore, director of spa operations and development, Hilton Worldwide, said: "Founded in 1828, Guerlain's history runs parallel with the history of skincare; it is this expertise and the established, sophisticated connotations of the brand that we felt had a natural synergy with the intrinsic elegance of Waldorf Astoria Hotels.

"Each treatment is transformed into a unique and personal occasion by highly skilled beauty therapists who will provide guests with a bespoke and boutique experience that will really reflect the spa's essence."
