Guerlain Spa set for Waldorf Astoria in Edinburgh

Following a significant programme of investment the soon to be re-launched The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Edinburgh is pleased to announce the introduction of the UK’s first Guerlain Spa, which will open to guests in winter 2012, following the grand unveiling of the hotel in mid-September. 

With extensive renovations currently underway, the spa will become a sanctuary of luxury and relaxation where local residents and hotel guests will experience sensorial, indulgent and cutting edge treatments. 

From the moment they arrive, the Caledonian team will ensure that every need is taken care of. 

On arrival, guests will be escorted through to an elegant haven of calm and serenity. 

With three luxurious treatment rooms and a team of highly trained beauty therapists, a visit to the Guerlain spa will be transformed into a unique and personal experience. 

Beginning with a systematic analysis and precise skin diagnosis each session will be individually tailored using signature Guerlain touches to enrich and satisfy a guest’s every requirement. 

A journey of tranquillity will begin as guests are encouraged to relax and enjoy a gently soothing, fragrant foot bath designed to envelop the senses; a ritual that will allow even the most time pressed guests to unwind before their choice of treatment.

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.

Available treatments 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.

When the treatment finally comes to an end, expert beauty therapists will offer a touch of colour, enabling clients to leave feeling relaxed, revived and ready to face the world.
