River Wellbeing Spa at The Hotel Rafayel
Visited Oct 2010
What a find. I would never have gone all the way to Battersea if it wasn't for the Wahanda Mobdeal. The spa is on the 3rd floor of a Miami-style complex comprising hotel/restaurant and residential flats (of course now I want to live in one of those flats with views over the Thames!).
The spa has a lovely Oriental theme throughout and all the staff were extremely kind.
I used the jacuzzi and sauna, then had a Swedish massage followed by tea and cupcake. My therapist was Felicia, a confident and professional young lady who joined the team recently. I asked her to work more on my shoulders and she delivered, throwing in some needed shoulder rotations for good measure. I was very happy with the treatment.
The tea is served in the relaxation room which looks better from the outside than the inside; the room itself is small and air conditioned so you need a blanket to keep warm (there were 2 blankets for a total of 3 beds, I was puzzled as it's like musical chairs for getting the blankets). My enjoyment and relaxation was spoiled by two bargain-hunters talking rather loudly in the room while I was trying to read, they were boasting about all the deals they got through Wahanda and MyCityDeal (sorry I am not interested in hearing about this). I left the relaxation room thinking I had enough of being there, which was a shame as I really enjoyed my nice soak in the jacuzzi to soften my aching muscles and my massage thereafter.
All in all I would recommend this spa to my friends, clients and contacts and I reckon I'll be back for more treatments if I am in the area.
Many thanks to all members of staff for a lovely afternoon.
