Whilst it may be better known for its bustling city streets, crowds of tourists, and jam-packed events calendars than as an ideal location for a relaxing weekend break, London is fast becoming a must-visit destination for those looking to truly getaway from it all.
For those such serenity seekers, part of the city’s appeal is the number of premium quality spa and pamper centres, each offering a unique array of Treatments and therapies which serve as the ultimate in indulgence.
Whether you’re staying at the Amsterdam Hotel as part of a relaxing getaway, or simply looking for a quick way to unwind on your next business trip to the capital, here’s just five of our favourite places to enjoy the best massages, spas, saunas and more, all within a short distance from our London hotel.
Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park
66 Knightsbridge, SW1X 7LA
A gentle stroll from our luxury hotel near Kensington’s splendid Hyde Park, you’ll find Mandarin Oriental, a first class holistic spa and massage centre where ancient treatments meet the very latest in modern relaxation.
A favourite with over-worked business guests here at the Amsterdam Hotel, Mandarin’s locally famous relaxation pods are a must for those looking to really just sit back and unwind, whilst their Oriental Essence massage was recently acclaimed as one of the best spa treatments in London by The Telegraph.
Thai Square Spa
25 Northumberland Ave, WC2N 5AP
A little further afield, Thai Square Spa’s renowned range of grooming and treatments are well worth taking the short tube journey from Earls Court Station to Charing Cross, especially for those of you visiting London for a vacation.
A particular hit with travellers, Tai Square’s ‘jet lag recovery package’ (£185 for two hours) and ‘post flight serenity massage (£85 for an hour) help you feel revived and ready to really make the most of your time in London after a long trip.
Personally, we also love the venue’s range of foot therapy treatments, perfect for reinvigorating tired feet after a long day walking around and seeing the sights.
1 Cadogan Gardens, Chelsea, SW3 2RJ
A little closer to home, we come to the one venue that TimeOut London once described as a must-visit for any true spa-lover.
Situated in Knightsbridge, just a few minutes away from your hotel in Kensington, Ushvani offers authentic, Malaysian treatments in truly luxurious surroundings.
A firm favourite with Kensington and Chelsea’s elite and well-to-do, no relaxing weekend break in London is quite complete without experiencing the range of exoctic, five star treatments to be found at Usvhani.
Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre
Hotel Café Royal, 50 Regent St, Soho, W1B 5AS
A haven of tranquility in the heart of thriving London, Akasha’s incredibly popular hydrotherapy treatments can be found beneath the Hotel Cafe Royal in Soho.
There, you’ll also have the chance to indulge yourself with a sauna, private treatment rooms, jacuzzi and the only Watsu pool to be found in London.
For us personally, it’s the Shiatsu and Indian massages that are a hit with the staff here at the Amsterdam Hotel in London.
The Berkeley Health Club & Spa
Wilton Place, Knightsbridge, SW1X 7RL
Last but certainly no means least, we come to the one London spa and pamper centre which truly epitomises luxury, indulgence, and style.
Located within The Berkley itself, this five star centre aims to quell the chaos and calamity of city life by treating visitors to the kind of calm and tranquility you’d usually only find in the rural countryside.
The Bamford Haybarn range of treatments are an absolute must, whilst nothing quite beats the chance to enjoy a rare moment of pure serenity in The Berkeley’s famous rooftop pool.
