Kimpton Blythswood Square welcomes new Winter Spa Garden THAW

Open air spa for Glasgow City Centre hotel

Winter Spa Garden, THAW, launches at the famous Kimpton Blythswood Square this November. Situated in the exclusive secluded courtyard of the city’s only five-star hotel – which features facilities including an open-air hot tub and purpose-built sauna and steam rooms.

Residents at the hotel can enjoy the new outdoor experience seven days-a-week, alongside the spa’s full 55-minute treatment menu, while non-residents will be able to book a treatment or the Unwind & Dine package at weekends.

THAW’s arrival also heralds a new era at Kimpton Blythswood Square, with work already under way as part of an extensive reimagination of the hotel’s award-winning Spa, which will see the addition of a whole new spa, blissful wellness area and unique snowfall feature.

The spa’s popular thermal suite and relaxation pool will remain open exclusively to hotel guests until November 3, while the full range of luxurious, holistic, body treatments will be available to enjoy throughout the renovation.

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 and we can’t wait for guests to enjoy it. 

“The Spa at Blythswood has been a central part of the Kimpton experience, and it was essential to us to ensure guests continue to enjoy the facilities they expect. 

“The reimagination of the Spa at Blythswood will make the guest experience even more special, and we look forward to revealing more details in the coming months.”
