Hidden Gems - Vote for the Best of the Best


The Wahanda community is full of reviews - so we thought, why stop there? With thousands of spas and salons up and down the UK, you need to know exactly where to go for that perfect pamper experience.

While we wish we could sample every treatment across Britain, we’re using the reviews added by you, our fantastic customers, to pick out the best of the best. It’s those tucked away hidden gems with the best deep tissue massage or skin-saving facial that really get us excited, and thanks to your honest reviews we've got that insider knowledge.

So, each month we’ll be awarding those hidden finds with the help of your words of wisdom and showcasing them for all to see. Let’s roll out the red carpet, shall we?

May 2013 winners

With the sun finally out (hurrah!) and the evenings staying lighter for longer, we’re all making the most of the great outdoors. After a long winter, it’s time to wax up, smooth out and feel great for summer. So it's pretty handy that our pick of the bunch in Paddington this month are sure-fire winners…

Best for Thai Massage in Paddington



Top reviews:

“My boyfriend and I have been moaning that our backs have been aching so I booked us in to Thai Lamoon for a couples massage. I booked it here based on the reviews and they were right! The actual massage was amazing. She really worked on the knots in my back and it was quite clear she knew what she was doing. I will definitely be visiting there again.” KDLDN07, April 2013

The venue:

Another hidden gem to any passers-by, Thai Lamoon Therapy is one of those places that we can’t stop talking about here at Wahanda Towers. Whether you’re feeling stressed, have back pain, muscle tension, sporting injuries, migraines, insomnia or just need a relaxation and pampering for yourself or your loved one, this Central London hotspot is the first place to turn.

With the principle of ‘your body and mind deserve more’ and a choice of traditional Thai massages, you know that you’ll leave feeling like you’re walking on air...

Best for Semi-Permanent Makeup in Paddington



Top reviews:

“I wanted to get my eyebrows enhanced to darken what was already there, so really did my research as I wanted something natural. After thorough research and reading all the positive reviews through Wahanda, Fe Hair & Beauty seemed like a no brainer. Samira was extremely helpful with providing me with any information I needed prior to this treatment. The salon was very welcoming and staff were attentive (and busy- which is always a great sign!). Overall, the results were amazing - spot on. I am extremely impressed with my treatment (which was virtually pain-free!)” ANONYMOUS, April 2013

The venue:

Found in between Paddington and Oxford Street, Fe Hair and Beauty can treat you to a new ‘do, a relaxing treatment or some long-lasting make up with their knowledge in semi-permanent treatments. From facials to waxes and blow drys to threading, this five star salon is the ultimate pampering stop-off from the busy streets outside. With a product range including Yon Ka, L’Oreal, St Tropez, Essie and O.P.I, and a team of highly skilled therapists, Fe Hair and beauty is a winner in our eyes!

For an extra touch, you will enjoy a complimentary head and shoulder massage with each hair service and you can enjoy a refreshing drink of anything from green tea to wine while you kick back and relax…

April 2013 winners

After an Easter break full of Easter egg hunts and a fair bit of oh-so-delicious chocolate cake, it’s time to settle back into daily life again and look forward to the summer sunshine – hurrah! With temperatures rising and the days getting longer, it’s time to treat ourselves to a mini makeover before we get out into the lazy days of summer...

March 2013 winners

Now that the sun is slowly putting his hat on (hurrah!) and we can venture outside without our hair getting wet, we’re looking forward to having a mini spring clean and being body beautiful in the run up to summer. Where better then to take a trip to the Kensington and Earls Court area of London and enjoy a little pampering treat...

February 2013 winners

After a long Christmas and New Year break, the Hidden Gems are back! While we’ve all been overindulging in turkey and chocolates, it’s now time to get back in the swing of things. While we always firmly believe in a little pamper, there’s never been a better time to lie back, relax and feel great. This month, we’re zooming in on the gorgeous areas of South Kensington and Notting Hill and picking out the best from the rest...

December 2012 winners

With Christmas and the year drawing to an end, December is a busy time for everyone. Whether you’re getting ready for party season or just fancy a relaxing treatment or two, these two beauty salons in Hammersmith and Chiswick are just the thing for your perfect pamper...

November 2012 winners

With some of the best business and therapists situated in the capital, we thought we’d put the spotlight down on one small corner of London and focus in on the Fulham area. Situated on the North edge of the River Thames, this lively area has everything you need for looking great and feeling even better. Sniffing out those hidden gems was hard, but we found them thanks to your great reviews...
