Belmond puts spa on rails

The boom in spa treatments has made its way to rail, with Belmond launching its first day spa carriage on board its luxury Belmond Royal Scotsman train next month. The Bamford Haybarn Spa will offer indulgent treatments for passengers travelling on overnight rail journeys throughout Scotland and other parts of Britain.

“We are excited to launch our first spa carriage — we are now able to offer our guests a new way to relax, to de-stress and slow down and to reflect on their journey with us,” managing director of Belmond Trains & Cruises Gary Franklin said. “Train journeys are incredibly relaxing and the new Haybarn Spa offers another way to take time and reconnect with the things that are important while travelling through stunning Scottish scenery”.

The spa features two single treatment rooms designed using sustainable wood from Scotland and the Cotswolds. The spa menu includes a deluxe facial incorporating reflexology, lymphatic drainage, stimulating lifting and ancient yogic breathing finished off with a deep tissue back massage using hot stones. Other options include the Bamford de-stress massage, deep tissue massage, manicures and pedicures using eco-natural Kure Bazaar nail polishes.

The Belmond Royal Scotsman offers two seven-night itineraries from Edinburgh across the Scottish Highlands.
