Old Course Hotel St Andrews

Kohler Waters Spa at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews Reopens After Multi-Million Renovation

Kohler Waters Spa at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews has reopened following an extensive multi-million refurbishment. Opening up to the public for the first time as the only Kohler Waters Spa outside the USA, it offers a luxury spa retreat in the heart of Scotland with a focus on hydrotherapy and organic treatments.


The new Kohler Waters Spa provides a ‘SPA’ in the true meaning of the word, offering ‘Salus Per Aquum’ – ‘health through water’. Guests can indulge in the healing effects of water, from a hydrotherapy pool providing therapeutic bathing, a cold plunge pool and a refreshing ice fountain to experience showers featuring Kohler Real Rain™.



The renovation has seen the addition of a new 20m lap pool as part of the large health and fitness centre, as well as a gym area with cardio and resistance stations, a functional fitness space and a group exercise studio, with instructor led classes along with innovative virtual training.

There is also a steam room providing deep muscular relaxation and detoxification, a Finnish sauna and a rooftop garden with hot tub.



Designed by Sedley Place, the extension and refurbishment of the existing space has created a total of 25,000 sq. ft., featuring 13 treatment rooms including two couple’s rooms, as well as two wet treatment rooms offering Kohler bathing experiences.

Specialising in marine and aromatherapy treatments by Comfort Zone, Phytomer and Voya, therapies employ natural ingredients including seaweed for its anti-inflammatory and soothing qualities, mineral rich peat for its restorative and healing properties and Himalayan salt to detoxify.


Expertly crafted treatments by Margaret Dabbs, the woman whom A-listers and royals call upon to get their feet red-carpet-ready, are on offer for manicures and pedicures. Guests can also expect highly customised treatments by the spa’s therapists, as part of the ‘custom time’ menu, where they will receive a personalised treatment programme.



Bordering the renowned 17th Road Hole of the Old Course, the Old Course Hotel is situated in a prime location overlooking the famous links courses, the West Sands Beach and the beautiful Scottish coastline. This prestigious AA five red star awarded hotel features 144 rooms including 35 suites, some of which were designed by French designer Jacques Garcia. The hotel has also recently undergone a complete refurbishment of its bedrooms.




To celebrate the re-opening, Kohler Waters Spa is offering an exclusive package from £260 for two people, including a 50% saving. The offer includes a Classic Prescription Facial and a Custom Back Massage each, as well as lunch for two in the brand new spa Café and use of all Kohler Waters Spa facilities. The offer is valid from 8th January – 30th March 2018, subject to availability.

The Old Course Hotel & Spa’s recommended local attractions and activities

St Andrews is one of Scotland’s most beautiful towns, successfully blending traditional character with a vibrant mix of outstanding recreational facilities. The town has a burgeoning cultural scene as well as many exciting visitor attractions, excellent shopping and a collection of restaurants and bars serving delicious Scottish cuisine.

The town is located on the East Coast of Scotland, in the Kingdom of Fife, and contains a fascinating history. Take in the heritage of the town with an exclusive guided tour, as you explore the cobbled streets and the nooks and crannies of the University of St Andrews, the most ancient in Scotland and today a thriving centre of excellence made popular by Prince William, who chose to study there. Afterwards visit St Andrews Castle and the Cathedral ruins. There are also many picturesque fishing villages to explore nearby.

There are many family-friendly attractions to explore, including the Sea Life Centre, St Andrews Aquarium, the Botanic Gardens and Craigtoun Country Park, while the surrounding area offers many delights including spotting seals from the sand dunes at Tentsmuir and horse riding at Kilconquhar Castle.

Relax at one of the town’s many coffee houses before you hit the shops. St Andrews is refreshingly free of chain stores, ensuring a unique and rewarding shopping experience, with the town centre offering an excellent range of independent, family-run shops and businesses.

We can’t talk about St Andrews without mentioning golf, since the game has been played here for the past six centuries. St Andrews is home to 11 courses – seven of championship class – including the world’s most famous golf course, the Old Course, as well as the Royal and Ancient, which sets the rules of golf worldwide. The town regularly plays host to major golfing tournaments such as The Open, which is staged every five years in St Andrews, and the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, which attracts many international celebrities and major golfing names. If you’d prefer a more relaxed round, enjoy a spot of putting in the Himalayas, the famous 18-hole putting green, which ensures an afternoon of fun for adults and children alike.

The Fife coastal path takes in 135 kilometres of stunning coastline; however, you can simply enjoy a gentle stroll along the award-winning West Sands Beach, which is a vast expanse of glittering, white sand.

Blown Away Land Yachting
Land yachting combines the grace of sailing with the adrenaline buzz of motor racing – imagine yourself sitting a few inches from the ground and racing your friends and family across the sands at top speed. It requires no previous sailing experience and the basic skills can be mastered within an average of 15-20 minutes.


Beach Kayaking

Kitted out with approprate safety gear, enjoy paddling at the glorious West Sands, St Andrews. Easy to master and great fun for all ages.


Zap Catting
Zap Cats are amazingly light and powerful inflatable catamarans capable of pulling 3g around the turns. With a power to weight ratio of 340bhp per tonne, you have to have your wits about you as you’re not just a passenger on this thing you’re the co-pilot! You’ll be responsible for balancing the boat for the turns on the sea, just like any catamaran, but at high speed – the expert driver pulls 90 and 180 degree turns at speeds of around 40mph. Not one for the faint-hearted!

Seeing as you’ll be ripping it up over the high seas, you’ll be wearing drysuits, lifejackets and helmets as safety is paramount for this high speed adventure as you push the limits in time trials for a zapcat experience that you will never forget.


Stand Up Paddle Boarding
Stand up paddle boarding is one of the newest and fastest growing watersports in the world. St Andrews is an ideal location to discover this fun and exhilarating experience. Originating in the Hawaiian Islands,stand up paddleboards (SUPS) are a favourite with celebrities in California such as Piers Brosnan, Robert Downey Jr and Jennifer Aniston, and is recognised as one of the best sports for working core muscles, upper body and legs.

Using a one-bladed paddle and standing on a specially designed longer and wider surfboard, you will soon master the technique required under the instruction of one of our team to spend this new experience time having great fun in a wonderful part of the Scottish coastline.
