The 5 Best Unique Spas in Glasgow

The 4 Best Unique Spas in Glasgow

How We Chose

Service Options

There are so many services a spa can offer. A spa with a broader range can offer you treatments for your specific needs, while some are more specialised.

Practitioner Experience

There are laws and requirements for licensure in massage therapy, and we want to make sure readers go to reputable spas.

Spa Ambience

A spa’s ambiance can be affected by a spa’s aesthetic, music, noise levels, and cleanliness, which can all make or break the experience.

Customer Satisfaction

We consider customer feedback when choosing these spas, so we interviewed some customers to see what they think.


Lastly, we rate the prices range of each spa, and assess whether or not the services they offer are worth it.

  • Offers a variety of packages, some tailor-made for specific concerns
  • 60-minute services come with a complimentary gin and tonic and chocolate
  • Attention to detail and ambiance are great


  • A bit pricey
  • Afternoon tea not that impressive
  • Faulty online booking system

The Gin Spa is well-known to those who are big fans of plant-based medicinal practices and products. Just five years since its opening, Gin Spa has risen to become one of the most popular and trusted spas in Glasgow.

The team behind Gin Spa is the same team who launched Gin71 in 2014, which is a real gin venue serving drinks, snacks, and cocktails. We love how they incorporated this into the Gin Spa and in their products, as it gives the place its own identity.

They have a variety of packages for individuals, pairs, and small groups. There are also tailor-made packages for specific concerns such as pregnancy massages, treatments for men, and issue-targeting facials. 

The Gin Spa’s attention to detail is commendable, as all 60-minute services come with a complimentary gin and tonic from their drinks trolley, and aromatherapy chocolate. You can also go for afternoon tea and a couple more drinks at Cup Tea Rooms afterward.

Their services are a bit pricey, but we do think that it’s well worth the services you receive. And while the drinks are great, the snacks served during afternoon tea aren’t very impressive, so we suggest heading elsewhere for a bite.

Finally, take note that sometimes their system of purchasing vouchers online results in errors, so contact management for the best way to go about booking them. All in all, The Gin Spa is a top-tier place when it comes to ambiance and service.

  • One of the best Thai Massage Spas in Glasgow
  • Affordable rates
  • Frequent discounts and promotions throughout the year


  • Closed Sundays
  • Issues with professionalism and communication
  • Booking system not modernised

Looking for deep pressure massages to ease your body pains? Jasmine Thai Massage has a team of professionally trained and qualified Thai massage therapists who are focused on giving clients physical and mental healing.

Thai Traditional Massage is a healing system that was developed to maintain the body’s physical condition and balance emotions. Practitioners often use their hands, thumbs, elbow, forearms, and even their feet to reduce tension in the muscles.

Their range of services includes Healing, Sports, Back-Neck-Shoulder, Aromatherapy, Swedish, and of course, the Thai Massage. The latter, which is their speciality, is well sought out by both first-time clients and regulars.

We also like Jasmine Thai Massage’s rates as they are on the lower side, making it quite affordable for clients to get frequent massages. They also have discounts and promotions throughout the year, and their vouchers make suitable gifts for loved ones.

However, their professionalism is a bit hit-or-miss, especially with the reception staff. Their booking system is also not quite effective, so there have been booking problems – especially with a bit of a language barrier.

We hope that they modernise their booking system to improve their customer relations. Nonetheless, Jasmine Thai Massage is a wonderful place to get a small taste of Thailand through a deep, relaxing massage.

3. PURE Spa & Beauty

  • Open every day until late hours
  • Offers both salon and spa services
  • Tea and coffee served after massages


  • Busy schedule and hard to contact
  • Service range not as extensive as others

PURE Spa & Beauty is an award-winning, premier spa and beauty provider in the UK. They have several branches in Central, North, and South England, and their Glasgow branch is very highly rated across different websites.

Their goal is to provide essential spa and beauty treatments to on-the-go individuals, which is why they are open late throughout the week in many urban locations. We’d say accessibility is our favourite aspect of PURE Spa & Beauty, but there’s more to love!

PURE Spa & Beauty offers typical salon services such as waxing, tanning, facials, and mani-pedis, but their secret is in their luxurious day spa upstairs. Clients can relax with a range of spa treatments, from deep tissue to hot stone massages.

Their bestselling treatment is their PURE Deluxe Facial, which combines exfoliation, a face and decollete massage, and a lovely face mask to rejuvenate the skin. They also have vegan massage courses, a feature that isn’t quite as common in others.

This spa is quite busy, however, due to its location and long open hours. Getting ahold of staff over the phone or online can be a challenge, so customers might need to exercise a bit of patience.

They’re also a business that combines a salon and spa, so the service range might not be as extensive as others on our list. Otherwise, there are very few negatives with the overall experience provided by PURE Spa & Beauty Glasgow.

  • Unique comprehensive thermal experience
  • Accessible to hotel residents
  • Has several facilities including nine treatment rooms, pools, and a cafe


  • Expensive rates
  • Customer service lacking at times
  • Small issues with punctuality, maintenance, attention to detail

If you’re looking for a retreat unlike any other, then Spa at Blythswood Square might be the best option for you! There’s nothing more luxurious than booking a room at Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel and dedicating a day to relaxation.

Spa at Blythswood Square has nine treatment rooms, a thermal suite, two relaxation pools, a lounge area, a cafe, and several tranquil guest areas sprawled across its 10,000 square feet facility area.

Their ‘ishga’ (Gaelic word for water) treatments are all developed using Scottish seaweed and water from a natural spring situated on the Isle of Lewis. Ishga is incorporated into their facials, body wraps, hot stone massages, and others.

We were most impressed by their comprehensive thermal experience, which takes guests through a series of rooms that alternate between wet and dry, warm and cold. This increases blood flow, speeds up the healing process, and improves dispositions.

For hotel residents, spa facilities are complimentary. As for regular rates, we feel that it is a bit expensive for the customer service that you get – although the facilities are impressive, there is no tour or guide to walk you through the experience.

Other points for improvement would be for meal serving times, facility maintenance, and overall attention to detail, considering the price. Nonetheless, the Spa at Blythswood Square is one to visit if you’re looking for a unique wellness experience.
