The Lanesborough Club and Spa

We visit The Lanesborough Club and Spa for a massage at The Lanesborough Hotel in Knightsbridge.

The Lanesborough Hotel re-opened in 2016 following a large refurbishment to start a new life as part of the Oetker Collection.

The Oetker Collection also includes favourite hotels such as Chateau St Martin in the South of France, Le Bristol in Paris and Eden Rock in St Barth’s.

The Lanesborough Club & Spa

Earlier this year, The Lanesborough Club and Spa joined the hotel as a members’ fitness and health club as well as a rather fancy hotel gym and spa.

The spa’s décor is certainly luxurious with its glossy wood panels, heavy use of marble and its silk wallpaper, but it far more contemporary in feel than the rest of the hotel, which retained the heavily traditional style of its past.

The spa’s facilities include a large gym with personal training by Bodyism, a hydrotherapy pool, sauna and a range of thermal treatment rooms.

What remained with me after my visit is that there was such a sense of space and serenity. And what a beautiful space it is.

I tried the deep tissue potali massage, which uses hot stones during the massage to help reduce inflammation and soreness.

Designed to improve blood and lymph circulation, but more than anything, deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. Facial treatments use La Prairie and British organic skincare line, ILA.

Protein snacks and juices are available at the beautiful spa restaurant which also serves nutritional dishes created by the hotel’s Michelin-starred chefs.

As far as London hotel spas go, The Lanesborough Club and Spa is certainly one of the most luxurious where you could easily lose a whole day to pure pleasure.
