New package is available at Yu Spa at Apex Waterloo Place Hotel, Edinburgh and Apex City Quay Hotel, Dundee from July 15.
The ‘Body & Bubbles’ package has been created to boost the health and wellbeing of the guest and features a relaxing massage followed by a glass of beneficial bubbles from Wild Life Botanicals, and full use of the facilities.
Apex Hotels chose to partner with Wild Life Botanicals for its ‘Body & Bubbles’ package to offer guests a glass of fizz with a difference.
Fiona Young, Head of Spa at Apex Hotels, explained: “A glass of champagne or sparkling wine is always seen as an indulgent end to a spa experience. Yu Spa is all about balance, so we wanted to create a package that offers a luxury, indulgent experience that is beneficial to both the physical and mental health of our guests. Partnering with Wild Life Botanicals means we can offer our guests the luxury feel of a lovely, chilled glass of fizz without the negative health effects associated with traditional sparkling wines or champagnes.”
Wild Life Botanicals has created a unique English sparkling wine that is low in alcohol but infused with vitamins, minerals and botanicals chosen for their health-giving properties. At only 0.5% ABV and just 35 calories per glass, this is a sparkling wine that delivers luxury without any guilt.
Just one 125ml glass of Wild Life Botanicals delivers 15-60% of the recommended daily amount of certain vitamins and minerals. Composed of five herbs and eight vitamins and minerals, this is a sparkling wine unlike any other – one that will have greater health benefits the more you drink!
The ‘Body & Bubbles’ package comprises a 25-minute Yu Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage, where expert therapists will target key stress points with long, slow strokes to leave guests feeling completely relaxed and reinvigorated, followed by bubbles with benefits in the tranquil surroundings of the Yu Spa. Guests can don fluffy bathrobes and relax in the warmth of the sauna, chill out in the relaxation areas and float their troubles away in the pool. The entire experience lasts around two hours, depending on how long the guest would like to use the facilities.
The ‘Body and Bubbles’ package is available from £49 at Apex Waterloo Place Hotel, Edinburgh and from £59 at Apex City Quay Hotel, Dundee from July 15 until the end of September.
