Old Course Hotel gears up for Kohler Waters Spa relaunch

Scotland’s Old Course Hotel in St Andrews will reopen its Kohler Waters Spa in January following a multi-million pound refurbishment.

The 25,000 sq ft spa will have a strong focus on hydrotherapy and will be separated into two areas; there will be a distinct divide between the spa journey and the leisure and fitness facilities.

A new hydrotherapy pool, cold plunge pool, ice fountain and experience showers featuring “Kohler real rain”, a showering system designed to mimic rainfall, will allow guests to “indulge in the healing effects of water”.

Other new additions include a steam room, Finnish sauna, and rooftop garden with hot tub, as well as 13 treatment rooms including two couple’s rooms, and two wet rooms for bathing experiences.

The re-launch of the spa will also see Comfort Zone come on board as lead product house, bringing its menu of Himalayan salt and aromatherapy treatments. Other brands include Phytomer, Voya and Margaret Dabbs.

A Custom Time menu will allow guests to receive a personalised treatment programme.

Kirsty MacCormick joined as spa director in May and has overseen the redevelopment. MacCormick previously held roles as head of spa for Bamford and director of global spa development for Elemental Herbology.

The re-launch follows the renovation of the hotel's bedrooms, completed earlier this year.
