A special experience for sure! I booked myself in for a Signature Turkish Hammam at the newly opened ESPA spa at the Istanbul Edition hotel. The spa itself is on level -5, five floors below the lobby entrance with luxury treatment rooms, wet rooms, a pool and a Turkish hammam as well.
I had the entire treatment in a private hammam suite with a steam room, hammam marble room and private scrub room & table. It was really luxurious and very cool.
The treatment I signed up for was a 60 minute Turkish bath, massage & hammam that starts with an exfoliation & body scrub (after you have warmed up in the private steam room), followed by a full body foam massage with olive oil soap that smells amazing, shampoo & hair mask, and finished with an application of moisturizing body mask of natural honey and milk.
The place is amazing - I wish I had more time before my treatment to use the pool, etc. If you can, definitely go. After the treatment, your skin is really soft and you feel completely clean - almost like a newborn baby. This is a special place
Fabulous blend of traditional and modern with brilliant food, amazing service and a top class destination hotel spa. The rooms are lovely and I slept really well. The view of the little lake / pond with the trees definitely makes you forget you are only an hour outside of London.
I had a massage at the spa which was top class, and the meals were also lovely.
On top of it all, fantastic showers and amazing sweeping views. We also used the gym which has a great indoor & outdoor fitness areas.
This is a great little secret that I am sure will soon get out.
I used my Wahanda MobDeal here and decided to have a one hour massage and a one hour Galvanic "electric" Guinot facial, which came to £110 total (a good value for two hours worth of luxury treatments in the heart of Mayfair). The salon/spa is unassuming, but I was led to a very nice and quite spacious treatment room on the lower floor.
The facial was an experience to remember - my face was coated with a moisturising gel, and then the therapist used these metallic implements, including these metal balls on wands (straight out of a movie) that ran an electric current on my face (crazy!). I had to hold onto a rod in my palm to complete the electric circuit (all safe over the 20 yrs that this treatment has been in existence, I was assured!), but the therapist also told me that the electric galvanic current actually helps to sink the moisturizer deeper into my skin...leading to a better facial. The therapist told me that i might get a metallic taste sensation as the implements came near my mouth (which i did!). Guinot is also a top facial brand...so, I went with it. She also cleansed and did some extractions beforehand, and also a hydrating mask...it was so relaxing that I totally fell asleep.
With regards to the massage, I was advised by my fantastic therapist (I believe her name was Claire) that for men, she would only be able to massage me while i was face down (nothing against me, she said, just Westminster Council regulations on massaging men...so word to the wise). I was not particularly bothered as I was more interested in my back getting massaged anyway. The massage was spot on, but I think I would have preferred a "deeper" deep tissue - that being said, it was really useful and the massage oil was really nice as well. She also concentrated on my problem left shoulder, so that was very much appreciated.
A nice little find, so I would recommend it wholeheartedly, and the staff are very nice indeed.
