Hotel Missoni Edinburgh officially opens boutique spa

Edinburgh | November 18, 2010

Fashion legend Rosita Missoni has now officially opened the very first Hotel Missoni Spa in Edinburgh. Rosita, who is responsible for the design of the hotel, was first to sample some of the treatments offered by the expert team.

Designed to give guests a true reflection of the Missoni lifestyle, Spa Missoni welcomes visitors with the same style and sophistication as the rest of the hotel, infusing bold colours with the iconic Missoni design. A luxurious experience from the outset, clients are welcomed into two vibrant treatment rooms adorned with the signature Missoni spectrum of colour. Yellow floors, teal walls and purple doors combine together to create a unique relaxing and tranquil setting. Guests to the spa are greeted with signature Missoni bathrobes and slippers on arrival, ready to be pampered in style. The indulgence of Spa Missoni also extends to a ‘Chill Zone’ where guests can enjoy healthy snacks and refreshments before and after treatments.

Bringing the latest in cosmetic innovation to the Scottish capital, Spa Missoni has introduced Eve Lom and Natura Bissé treatments to the city. Firm favourites of beauty editors, make-up artists and A-List stars, these specialist brands are used across a range of face and body treatments, many of which have been unavailable in Edinburgh until now. With treatments starting from £40 for a 30-minute treatment, the spa offers a selection of luxurious body and beauty treatments, including the Diamond Lifting facial. This highly effective regenerative treatment restores elasticity to the eyes, face, neck, and décolleté leaving skin looking visibly firmer, brighter and revitalised.

Carina Svensen, General Manager at Hotel Missoni Edinburgh, said: “A spa is meant to be the ultimate in relaxation so we want to make sure guests are looked after from the moment they book an appointment. We offer bespoke, flexible packages, and our opening hours mean Spa Missoni is accessible all week - mornings, afternoons and evenings. Our spa fits perfectly with the rest of the hotel and offers an oasis of calm in the bustling city.”

Since opening in June 2009, Hotel Missoni has established itself as a favourite on the social scene in Edinburgh, and has also quickly become a destination of choice for the modern traveller. Spa Missoni reflects the 5-star standard experienced throughout the hotel as it creates a truly sophisticated environment to relax and unwind. The hotel was also just this week awarded Europe’s Leading New Hotel of the Year 2010 at the World Travel Awards.
