The new Winter Spa Garden that has opened in Glasgow’s five-star Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel is the city’s first outdoor spa.

The winter retreat features an open-air hydrotherapy hot tub, luxury saunas and a steam room.

Thaw’s two four-seater infrared saunas each offer their own unique atmosphere. While one fully embraces fun, social vibes, the second is a tranquil wellness space designed to allow guests to destress with soothing sound therapy.

First introduced at Kimpton Charlotte Square’s Swell: Sound Wellness Room, sound therapy is provided by award-winning music producer and Glasgow native, Brian D’Souza.

The four-person aroma steam room is joined by a drench experience shower and a lounge area, all supplied by the Highland Home Centre, based in Aviemor.

An extensive reimagination

The Scandinavian-inspired pop-up spa, situated under a canopy in the five-star hotel’s secluded courtyard, can be enjoyed exclusively by residents seven days-a-week, alongside the spa’s full 55-minute treatment menu.

Non-residents will be able to book a treatment or the Unwind & Dine package at weekends.

Kimpton Blythswood Square’s spa is currently undergoing an extensive renovation, with work underway as part of a reimagination, including the addition of a whole new wellness area and unique snowfall feature.

The new area is due to open in spring 2023.

“The Spa at Blythswood has been a central part of the Kimpton experience, and the reimagination will make the guest experience even more special. We look forward to revealing more details in the coming months.”

Finlay Anderson, spa director at Kimpton Blythswood Square and area spa director for IHG, said: “Luxury is a signature of the Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel, and few things say it more than an open-air spa. It’s tremendously exciting to bring Glasgow’s first outdoor spa to Kimpton Blythswood Square.”
