What is the first thing a customer should feel/see/smell when they arrive at your spa?

At One Spa Edinburgh, the first impression is carefully curated to immerse our customers in a world of tranquillity.  As they step through our glass doors, they are greeted by a calming smile from our attentive and friendly staff, surrounded by soft lighting and a subtle infusion of relaxing scents. The décor creates an immediate sense of luxury and serenity, setting the stage for a truly rejuvenating experience.


What is the one thing that you want your customer to remember and take away about your spa?

We strive for every guest to leave One Spa with a lasting sense of well-being and relaxation. The holistic approach to wellness, the personalized attention from our skilled therapists, and the immersive experiences, especially in our Thermal Suite, are designed to create a memorable and transformative spa journey. We want our customers to carry with them a sense of rejuvenation, both physically and mentally, long after they've left One Spa.

Which is your best-selling TEMPLESPA treatment and why?

At One Spa, we take pride in offering a range of exceptional TEMPLESPA treatments, each catering to the unique preferences of our clientele. Among our best-sellers, the TEMPLESPA | Be At One stands out as a luxurious top-to-toe signature experience, captivating guests with its opulence and transformative effects. The journey begins with an invigorating exfoliating foot ritual, followed by the placement of a Rose Quartz crystal to bring comfort and warmth to the heart. The sensation of poured warm oil, gracefully applied with a silky paintbrush up one side of the body at a time, paves the way for a full-body massage that is nothing short of divine. An indulgent facial refines and leaves the skin glowing, concluding with a warm oil-pour scalp massage that brings bliss from head to toe. Be At One fulfils all therapy wishes in one comprehensive session, allowing guests to be at one with themselves and my personal favourite as you cannot find this treatment elsewhere.

Additionally, our esteemed guests often indulge in the TEMPLESPA | Rose Quartz and Truffle Body Massage. This treatment is the epitome of total luxury, delivering all-over radiance-boosting results. The experience begins with a leg energizer and an invigorating full-body scrub, setting the stage for a relaxing massage using our unique advanced anti-aging body techniques, designed to tighten and tone. The grand finale includes the Champagne & Truffles deluxe facial, leaving the skin glowing, brighter, and revived beyond expectation. The harmonious combination of these luxurious elements makes it a sought-after choice among those seeking the ultimate in total pampering and rejuvenation.

What drew you to partner with TEMPLESPA treatment and products?

I was drawn to TEMPLESPA for their commitment to creating premium skincare products and luxury treatments that align with our philosophy of well-being at One Spa. TEMPLESPA's emphasis on using natural ingredients, advanced formulations, and their dedication to ethical and sustainable practices resonated with our values. The efficacy of their treatments and the positive feedback from our guests further solidified our decision to partner with TEMPLESPA, enhancing the overall spa experience we offer.


What is the typical customer experience at your spa?

The typical customer experience at One Spa is a journey of relaxation & rejuvenation. Guests are warmly welcomed into an ambiance where they can unwind and leave the stresses of daily life behind. Our skilled therapists offer personalised treatments, and our world class Thermal Suite provides a unique and holistic approach to wellbeing. The culinary delights of the One Spa Bento Box further enhance the experience, ensuring that every aspect of a guest's visit contributes to their overall sense of well-being.

Beyond traditional spa services, One Spa offers wellness programs designed to promote overall health and balance. Yoga classes for our members, led by experienced instructors, provide tools to cultivate mindfulness and relaxation. The integration of wellness into the spa experience reflects One Spa's commitment to fostering a holistic approach to health, encouraging members to embark on a transformative journey.

What is your USP or biggest selling point as a spa?

One Spa's biggest selling point is our commitment to providing an immersive wellness experience. From the carefully designed signature treatments to our focus on mind-body balance, coupled with the integration of TEMPLESPA's premium products, sets us apart as a destination where guests can truly embark on a transformative journey toward well-being.  One Spa’s Thermal Suite, a major highlight of the spa, offers a journey through a range of heat experiences designed to detoxify and stimulate circulation. Guests can indulge in the crystal steam room, unwind in the rooftop outdoor hydrotherapy pool, or experience the therapeutic benefits of 6 alternative offerings including Rock Sauna, Hammam and salt room.
