We are biased but we think Edinburgh is one of the best cities in the world for having a hen party; great nightlife, bars and restaurants and plenty to do during the day make it an excellent choice for that all important pre-wedding weekend.
If you are indulging in a few days of excess then why no treat yourself to plenty of pampering before your big night out or revive yourself after a late night with a facial or a massage at one of Edinburgh’s top spas. Here’s a selection of four Edinburgh spa’s that will cater for your every spa hen party need.
As one of the top-ranked independent spas in Edinburgh, Zen Lifestyle is a fantastic destination to add to your hen party itinerary. One of the great things about visiting Zen Lifestyle is that the treatment rooms are a variety of sizes. This means that you can grab a few friends and get your eyebrows reshaped next to one another in the brow bar or head to a private room for that relaxing massage you have been craving.
If you are gearing up for a night of drinking, dining and dancing, some of the treatments that might interest you are the tanning services, eyebrow threading and waxing, eyelash extensions and professional makeup services. For a relaxing day with your closest friends before the big wedding, great treatment options include electrolysis hair removal, facials, vein removal and manicures.

Although this is a chain of day spas with locations throughout Scotland it the spa on Lothian Road that is the perfect destination for those on a hen party weekend. Just minutes from Princes Street and many of the best clubs and restaurants in the city, Pure Spa and Beauty can be where you go to get ready for a night on the town. Services and treatments are designed to impress, which is ideal if you are celebrating one of your last nights out as a single woman!
Since the Lothian Road location of Pure Spa and Beauty is relatively small, with just four beauty treatment rooms, a nail bar and a pedicure room, it is perfect for groups who want the entire place to themselves. Bring along a few bottles of bubbly, book your group appointments in advance and then leave the spa with perfect nails and a great attitude.

When pampering, indulgence and plenty of time with your closest friends is on the agenda, then the Chamomile Sanctuary in Edinburgh may be the perfect destination. This spa includes all of the typical beauty and salon services that you might expect, but the atmosphere and design is created specifically to help clients slow down, relax and be calm.
Some of the fantastic treatments on offer include things like facials, rejuvenating body wraps, cellulite massages, reflexology and transformational non-surgical facelifts. With an beauty shop onsite as well, you and your friends can stock up on the makeup, hair and beauty essentials to get you through a few days of looking fabulous while you dine, drink and dance your way through the Scottish capital city of Edinburgh.

This is a full-service spa facility in the middle of the city, but the minute you step through the doors you are transported to a place of relaxation and peace. There are a variety of treatments to choose from, but the best bet is often to pick a full spa day package which includes access to the pool as well.
