The Destination by Hyatt brand, a collection of upscale independent hotels and resorts, is expanding to the United Kingdom.

SCHLOSS Roxburghe, an exquisite countryside estate in Scotland, has recently undergone a full renovation, reopening its doors as a Destination by Hyatt property — its first location in the country.

Here are the details of this unique hotel.

Meet SCHLOSS Roxburghe, a Renovated Countryside Oasis

SCHLOSS Roxburghe dates back to the 12th century and was once the home of the Duke of Roxburghe. This luxurious country estate, now part of Destination by Hyatt, boasts a state-of-the-art spa and a golf course, with 108 total rooms and suites and 12 new cottages.

Located a few miles from the town of Kelso and about an hour from Edinburgh, SCHLOSS Roxburghe’s 300 acres offer guests a chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The new 12,000-square-foot spa includes a heated infinity pool with an underwater sound system, a plunge pool, and a hot tub. There’s a separate 6,400-square-foot relaxation area with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the lush countryside.

Guests can wander the estate’s winding walking paths or try their hand at sports with salmon fishing, archery, and clay pigeon shooting at the Country Sports Centre.

The resort has 2 on-site restaurants, Charlie’s and Sunlaws, serving modern Scottish cuisine with an emphasis on fresh, local produce. Much of the produce is grown on-site, as part of the property’s “estate to plate” philosophy. All guests can also enjoy complimentary breakfast of traditional Scottish delicacies.

Rounding out the dining options is a tea room and 2 additional bars/lounges.

Bottom Line: SCHLOSS Roxburghe, a Destination by Hyatt hotel, is now open in Scotland. This 300-acre luxurious country estate features a brand-new spa plus a golf course, walking paths, a sports center, 2 restaurants, 2 bars, and a tea room.

How to Book With Points

SCHLOSS Roxburghe is a Destination by Hyatt hotel, which means you can book this luxurious property using World of Hyatt points. The property is a Category 4 hotel that requires only 12,000 to 18,000 points per night.

Even better, it can be booked using a Hyatt Category 1-4 free night certificate, which can be earned by:

  • Holding The World of Hyatt Credit Card
  • Spending $15,000 in a calendar year on the World of Hyatt card
  • Staying 30 nights or earning 50,000 Base Points in a calendar year
  • Staying at 5 or more different Hyatt brands through the Brand Explorer program

For example, you can book a 1 King Bed Courtyard room for just 12,000 points per night during off-peak season this spring. Compared to paid rates at £177 ($219) per night, you can achieve a 1.8 cent per point value — above our valuations for World of Hyatt points.

Final Thoughts

The newest addition to the Destination by Hyatt brand is now open in Scotland. SCHLOSS Roxburghe is a luxury estate — rooted in history — set on 300 acres of picturesque countryside. Guests can unwind and relax, taking in a round of golf, trying their hand at unique sporting activities, or enjoying a spa day. Better yet, this Category 4 property can be booked with 12,000 to 18,000 Hyatt points per night or by using a Hyatt free night certificate.
