Known for its luxurious rail trips—not to mention hotels and cruises—Belmond has just upped its own ante with the launch of Europe’s first spa carriage. Located aboard the Belmond Royal Scotsman, an elegantly appointed train that rolls through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Scotland, the Bamford Haybarn Spa comes with two single treatment rooms that offer views of the passing countryside from picture windows—though passengers may well be too blissed out to notice. Apart from de-stress and deep-tissue massages, individually tailored treatments include rejuvenating facials and expert manicures and pedicures using eco-friendly Kure Bazaar polishes. Riding the rails has never been so relaxing.
