Head through the plush hotel, hop into the lift, and you’ll reach it. The spa. In all its cream-coated, glossy-walled, sparkled-floor glory. I’m wearing my winter-sodden coat, and I’m ready to slide into something fluffy – and probably lavender scented. I’m greeted at reception, given the tour, and counting the minutes ‘til my treatment kickstarts. The space feels far from the city hustle outside – this really matters on a spa break. London on its doorstep, but serenity once the front door closes.
Why ESPA Life at the Corinthia Hotel is the spa you should visit before the year’s up
‘Me time’ is hard to find these days. Between the commuting, the office hours, the extensive socialising (and drafting excuses not to socialise) – it’s tricky to find a slot just for you. When the opportunity arose to visit one of London’s largest – and most reputable – spas, I made time. It’s been four days since my visit to ESPA Life at the Corinthia, and I’m still relaxed. Despite its history – located within the Corinthia Hotel, a building dating back to 1885 – the spa is considered ‘next generation’. Spoiler: I agree.
