The historic Peebles Hydro Hotel has always had a link to health and revitalisation, starting its life as the Peebles Hydropathic Institute in 1878, when people would flock to the venue for “weird and wonderful water cures.”

Now, the renowned resort hotel has upped its luxury game with the arrival of Scottish spa business, Pure Spa & Beauty. The beautiful garden setting of the Hydro sets the scene for relaxation, with a new beauty salon being created next to the current spa offering manicures, pedicures and brow treatments. The traditional relaxation and treatment rooms will also be upgraded, and offer the full range of PURE treatments.

Brands will include PURE’s own natural range, and established names such as Elemis, Image Skincare, Leighton Denny and OPI. Guests can choose from treatments including 90-minute massages, hot stone massages, deep tissue massages, facial treatments, waxing, brow lamination, gel manicures and pedicures. The spa will be accepting bookings from 1st December.

PURE Spa relaxation

PURE Spa and Beauty opened its flagship salon in Edinburgh in 2002, and recently gave residents in the capital another spa location to pop into with its new outlet on Rose Street. As well as the Scottish outlets in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, there are also PURE Spas in Manchester, Bristol, London, Peterborough and most recently Lytham St Annes.

“We are incredibly excited to open PURE Spa & Beauty at Peebles Hydro Hotel and to be working closely with the hotel team to build on its rich history with a range of relaxing and therapeutic spa and beauty treatments,” says Becky Woodhouse, PURE Spa & Beauty founder and CEO.

“With more people continuing to work from home we are seeing people take advantage of the time saved from their previous daily commutes to enjoy more wellness activities. PURE treatments are an excellent way for busy people to take some time out from the pressures of their daily lives and Peebles Hydro offers a superb new venue for a treatment, spa day or overnight stay and spa package.”
