Before we carry on with our springtime preparation, we think everyone deserves a little break. A spring break, that is. If those two words conjure up images of neon body paint, tequila shots and Sex on the Beach (the cocktail of course), don’t panic we’re not suggesting anything like that – not today anyway.
What we are suggesting is a relaxing mini break to take you away from the stress or monotony of daily life – not to mention this miserable weather. We want to help you begin this new season feeling fresh as a daisy, with a spring in your step and... any other spring-related puns you want to throw into the mix. Too much to do to plan a great escape? Don’t worry we’ve found a place in the heart of the capital that has everything you need for a relaxing break – including an express menu for any Very Important People. Welcome to One Aldwych.
Situated in one of the busiest parts of London, The Health Club at One Aldwych, Covent Garden, is a five star retreat that specializes in personalised service. The spa’s décor is contemporary luxury, with three treatment rooms complete with silk panelling, muted colours, soft music and restful mood lighting, designed by interiors specialist Mary Fox Linton to deliver the ultimate relaxation experience. It was also the first spa to offer a complete treatment list from the prestigious Spanish skincare specialist, Natura Bissé. The spa’s most unique feature, however, is its dedication to giving each guest an entirely personal experience that integrates personal training, spa treatments and nutritional advice.
Despite the lively location, The Health Club at One Aldwych promises its visitors a peaceful experience far removed from the bustling city outside its door. Experiences don't come much more peaceful than a dip in the stunning 18 metre, chlorine-free pool, complete with soft mood lighting, a tropical fish display and even underwater music if you like a little Handel while you swim. Whatever floats your boat…
As well as the most impressive pool in the city, the spa has a range of state-of-the-art facilities including an 8,000 square foot gym with the latest Technogym equipment, specialist body fat analyser machine to track progress and performance, a dedicated team of highly qualified personal trainers and a chill out zone where you can focus on your personal fitness goals.
When it comes to treatments the spa has three main focuses: Essentials, Express and Men's. Essentials covers an extensive range of health and beauty treatments from tailor-made facials to holistic healing. The Essentials menu incorporates the full Natura Bissé range (including the Diamond product range) as well as signature One Aldwych treatments. The Express menu offers and assortment of 30 minute treatments, ideal for busy spa goers, or for combining with other longer treatments and Men’s is - you guessed it - a range of Natura Bissé treatments that meet the individual needs of male skin, including an Oxygen Facial and Bamboo Scrub.
If you find yourself in need of a spring break this season, but your busy life-style (and aching bones) won’t allow for a week of debauchery in Cancun, take a look at The Health Club at One Aldwych’s page where you can book a getaway right now.
