New Luxury Spas in London

Akasha Spa at the Cafe Royal

The latest on the new wave of luxury spas in London.

There’s no doubt about it – any great city can be judged on the quality of its spas. The boom in hotel building for the 2012 Olympics – particularly at the high end of the market – has continued to give London’s luxury spa scene a major boost.

See below for the latest new Spa openings and prepare for some serious pampering. Also check out our Gay Saunas in London guide.

Espa Life at Corinthia

The luxury Corinthia hotel group opened their flagship London hotel to great fanfare in 2013, and the spa also has much going for it including thermal jet pools, an amphitheatre sauna, heated fireside beds, sleep pods and a nine metre swimming pool. It has also become somewhat of a fave spot to visiting American celebs.
