Spa of the week: The Kohler Waters Spa

Happy Diamond Jubilee! With all the hype surrounding this long weekend of fun and parties - which we think her Maj truly deserves after her fantastic work as our Queen - don’t forget there's a special day coming up that's a little closer to home. With Father’s Day on Sunday 17th June, we’ve found a great Scottish spa to show your dad, partner, brother or best friend that you really care.

The spa

The Kohler Waters Spa is the first of its kind outside of the USA, and is found at the Old Course Hotel in the historic golfing town of St Andrews. Tucked away from the famous university where Prince William first met the stunning Kate Middleton, the Kohler spa is as luxurious as they come, with over 140 rooms and a choice of bars and restaurants including the Road Hole Fine Dining Restaurant that boasts an incredible trio of AA rosettes.

The five star hotel is a wondrous building in itself, and the spa inside is a fantastic treat for your father or special man. Rated with five bubbles in the Good Spa Guide, the Kohler Waters Spa uses natural mineral-rich water to replenish skin and revitalise tired minds.

If pampering isn't quite his thing, why not treat him to a few rounds and let him practise his hole-in-one in the town that’s known worldwide as ‘the home of golf’. The Duke’s 18-hole course overlooks the famous grounds used for the Open Championship and is perfect for an alternative tee-time treat.

Treatments and facilities

With a 20 metre swimming pool (complete with waterfall), hydrotherapy pool, Japanese salt steam room, sauna and a rooftop hot tub, you won’t be thinking about heading to the hotel’s own on-site pub The Jigger Inn before a good soak and relaxation session.

Push the boat out for Father’s Day with one of their signature treatments. There's plenty on offer for the men including the Golfer’s Massage to ease tension while increasing flexibility, the Golfer’s Foot Renewal which scrubs away tired feet and refreshes them with a mud mask, the Gentleman’s Hand Renewal to touch up and buff nails for a professional look, and finally the Gentleman’s Skin Care Treatment where a customised face mask will regenerate skin - your dad will feel like a new man...

For the ladies, we love the sound of the Diamond of Beauty Facial, which begins with a selection of massages to refresh tired bodies, and a facial which uses a mixture containing diamond powder and plant extracts to keep skin looking youthful. For a more sensual treat that's all about pure indulgence, try one of Kohler’s signature treatments, including Lavender Rain where lavender is used to increase circulation, and the Highland Fling which is a water treatment with a twist, finished off with a mint and coffee exfoliation before you're slathered in chocolate body moisturiser.

Treat yourself

For an overnight spa break, why not try a two day It’s About Time Retreat where you can unwind with full use of the spa facilities, a choice of treatments, champagne, plus breakfast, a two course lunch and a three course dinner - we're sure your mum wouldn't mind popping along to join your dad for his treat…
