Irvinites can take the weight off at a luxurious new facility that opened last week – the Si! Spa in the Gailes Hotel.

After much work and preparation at the SimpsInns-owned property, it was finally opened last week on Thursday, October 1.

Included in the newly-opened facility are a thermal suite, vitality pool, sauna, steam room, relaxation area, rainforest shower, spa lounge, and deep relaxation area.

Irvine Times:

The suite offers an extensive range of holistic therapies including their signature rituals, massages, manicures and pedicures, as well as a specific spa treatment for men, including a ‘Golfers Tonic’.

All treatments are carried out using luxury skincare and beauty brand ESPA’s range of natural products made with unique combinations of plant extracts, marine actives and essential oils.

Prices for massage packages range from £40 for a 25 minute back, neck and shoulder massage, £80 for longer 55 minute massage packages and £120 for their signature ritual the Si! Spa Remedy, which lasts for two hours.

Manicures, pedicures, eyebrow and eyelash treatments, and waxing are all also available.

The interior of the new spa is something to behold, as the pictures showcase.

Gailes say on their website that: “Our commitment is to ensure all guests enjoy an exceptional experience at Si! Spa at The Gailes. Relax and immerse yourself into the relaxed spa environment.

“At this time, we have taken extra measures to safeguard all guests and therapists, including how the team works, interacts with guests and colleagues, how we look after the spa to how we deliver a five-star service in a safe environment (adhering to government guidelines) at all times.”

Gailes say that all members of staff will be required to wear masks and customers are also being asked to wear a face covering for “the duration of all treatments,” as well as sanitising hands regularly.

The venue is offering customers the chance to win a choice of two boutique therapies, lunch with a refreshing signature fruit smoothie, as well as access to the luxurious new Thermal Suite.

More information on the competition is available on the hotel’s Facebook page.
