7 of the Best London Spas
Corinthia Hotel London
What: Dark and alluring
Why: The dark, subterranean, ESPA Life spa offers a gym and thermal floor, an incredible pool, a vitality pool, amphitheatre sauna and steam room, an ice fountain as well as relaxation areas and experience showers. With a series of treatments available to both hotel guests and day packages available. And when you’re done, head upstairs and enjoy the bars or the recently announced new Tom Kerridge restaurant.
Sofitel London St James
What: Bathed in light
Why: Sofitel London St James may be one of London’s best looking hotels, but the beauty doesn’t end in the foyer. The SoSPA treatment rooms are flooded with light, a rarity given hotel spas are so often located below ground level, and the treatments available include innovative rejuvinating facials and exhilarating massages or book a personal trainer and do some fitness training in the well equipped SoFIT gym.
Ham Yard Hotel
What: Escape the Soho crazy
Why: There’s a really cool two storey spiral orange dispenser (check it out) but also in part because the treatment rooms at Ham Yard Hotel are a tranquil retreat from the crazy of nearby Soho and Piccadilly Circus. Relax, get pampered then head upstairs to the guests-only rooftop bar.
The Langham, London
What: Laid Back At The Langham
Why: There’s something wonderfully industrial about The Langham’s gym, laid out among the Victorian riveted girders of the building’s structure, making working out feel like stoking the engines in the belly of the Titanic. But fear not, the magnificent 16m pool is fully heated and sensual.
What: Love the dangly thing
Why: The Mondrian is special, with it’s fabulous views and quirky styling, it’s one of the most interesting hotels in London and a refreshing change from the grand old hotels of Mayfair. But this continues in the agua Bathhouse & Spa. It is just impressive....
What: Cowshed at The Ned
Why: The Ned was probably London’s most exciting opening of 2017, with its cool range of eating and drinking options. But don’t overlook the Cowshed Spa downstairs. Set around a 20-metre indoor pool there’s a sauna, steamroom, traditional Moroccan hammam and eight treatment rooms. Get a treatment and a haircut.
Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square
Why: It feels like the Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square has been around for ever, with its Michelin Starred restaurant and historic setting. In fact it’s only a year old and may still be on your to-do list. If so, then get down to The City and check out dinner at La Dame de Pic and afternoon tea at Rotunda but make sure you spend some time at the luxury spa while you’re there. Make the most of the swimming pool, vitality pool, steam room and sauna.
