Luxury Spa Hotels in London
Spa is a place that helps you indulge in some much-needed 'self' time, to switch off and relax, recharge, reflect, detox and beautify. Modern day spas cater to a range of health-promoting experiences. The healing powers of touch therapy have been expounded on since ancient times. Spas and touch therapies are thus intrinsically connected.
The nurturing touch of a skilled therapist's hands on one's body has benefits that go beyond the realm of the physical. Let’s now take a look at London’s top luxury Spa Hotels.
1. Akasha Spa
This magnificent Spa is an unexpected oasis of pampering that lets you leave the madness of the city behind. An attractive centrepiece is a gorgeously lit 18-metre pool flanked by a sauna, hammam and Jacuzzi. It’s also home to the capital’s only dedicated Watsu pool, where one can opt for a 50-minute session ($182) that encompasses hydrotherapy, meditation and Shiatsu massage. A day in Akasha’s serene surroundings is enough to revive even the most stress-frazzled, world-weary of Londoners.
2. Aman Spa
Located below the Connaught Hotel, The spa features what must be London’s nicest swimming pool, black tiled and complete with waterfall. A half-hour treatment costs around $106.
3. The Berkeley Spa
Nestled on top of the five star Knightsbridge hotel, it has the best rooftop pool in London. It offers Bamford Body Signature Treatment ($228), which is 85 minutes of rubbing bliss, including some hot stone action, a bit of reflexology and a smattering of other different techniques which couldn’t be differentiated but will make one feel very nice.
4. Chuan Spa
Known for a perfect post-work pampering, tucked discreetly next to the grand Langham Hotel, Chuan Spa is considered as an urban oasis. The philosophy of the spa is based on traditional Chinese medicine and the whole experience, from the décor and ambience to the treatments themselves, is meant to rebalance and recharge you. A treatment at Chuan Spa is an indulgent treat (the Nurturing Ritual costs a heft $198 off peak and $237 peak) but the delight of being able to bliss out in a central London location is such a well-needed novelty that it's most definitely worth the occasional splurge.
5. The Dorchester Spa
6. ESPA Life at Corinthia
7. MayFair Spa
8. The Spa at Brown's Hotel
9. The Spa at Mandarin Oriental
After a hard day’s work, after a real hectic day – everyone deserves a break without disruption. That’s when one should visit a Spa to rejuvenate one’s inner senses; this actually makes you feel energetic & keeps the tempo on.
