The Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa on Craignure Bay, Scotland, has revealed the final stage of an extensive, £1 million (€1.16 million) refurbishment with the opening of its new Wilderness Spa. 

The new facility forms part of a wider investment plan by operator Crerar Hotels that will see the group invest £4.5 million in spa improvements across several of its properties, including the Shore Spa at the Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa in Inveraray. 

An extension of the hotel’s Driftwood Spa, the Wilderness Spa is designed to bring the spa experience outside. Set on a private outdoor decking area, the spa offers a private thermal experience inspired by and set amidst the wilderness of Mull. 

The Wilderness Spa offers a private thermal experience with a unique relaxation space

Its facilities include an outdoor hot tub, bucket shower, day beds and sauna, with guests receiving dry robes so they can keep cosy throughout the experience.

The new offering is completed by a wilderness hut, a unique relaxation space where guests can go to read, relax and soak up the views and sounds of the island. It also provides a lookout where guests can see red deer and other wildlife that live on the hotel grounds.

Guests will also be able to book the Wilderness Spa for bespoke experiences such as a private dinner under the stars or to enjoy locally inspired picnic hampers arranged and delivered by the hotel staff. 

The Wilderness Spa is the final piece in the puzzle for the Driftwood Spa, which opened last summer to offer four treatment rooms, including two couples’ rooms. Its facilities also include a 17m swimming pool, thermal suite with a sauna and steam room, experience showers and a rasul. 

Hotel general manager John De Villiers said: “The Wilderness Spa concludes the investment and refurbishment of the Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa, which is perfect timing for the upcoming summer season.

“Guests will be surrounded by nature while being able to admire the stunning views across Craignure Bay, before taking advantage of the new thermal experience and cosy snug. Its completion really cements our place as an idyllic, coastal spa retreat.

“We’re proud to be able to offer a private sanctuary for those looking to drift away and truly relax and rejuvenate whilst staying with us.”
