London has a secret we are desperate to tell you about. Westin, a franchise of the Marriott group, has brought its first Heavenly Spa to the UK and it’s newly opened at The Westin London City.
A luxurious, five-star hotel, they celebrated wellbeing on all levels before it was fashionable. Their six core pillars are:
- Eat well
- Sleep well
- Feel well
- Work well
- Play well
- Move well
Each element represents different parts of the hospitality experience, and, of course, ‘feel well’, is all about the spa.
The hotel at The Westin London City
What you need to know about The Westin London City hotel is that it’s all about luxury. Achingly modern, it’s all about the attention to detail. Rooms are contemporary and stylish, while public spaces are spacious, chic and light thanks to the enormous windows. There are 222 rooms, and for special occasions there’s always the Presidential Suite.
A city centre location
Sitting on the banks of the River Thames, it’s got views of the water, but is also within easy reach of lots of London’s top attractions. You’re just moments from Shakespeare’s Globe theatre and the Tate Modern, take a walk over the bridge to Covent Garden, go to the theatre or jump in a cab to the top shopping districts.
The hotel’s bars and restaurants
While there’s plenty of places to go for dinner close by, the hotel itself has three restaurants that are definitely worth experiencing. Mosaic is the relaxed space for all-day dining, while Hithe + Seek is the hotel’s wine bar on the third floor. Then, for those here mostly for the spa experience, there’s also the super healthy Westin Fresh by The Juicery, for juices and smoothies.
The Heavenly Spa
Wellbeing at The Westin London City is divided into two parts: The WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio and The Heavenly Spa. The WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio is open 24-hours a day, seven days a week and has everything you need to work up a sweat. The Heavenly Spa on the other hand is a tranquil, seductive space that’s a welcome change of pace from the city outside. The pool is a real gem - it’s too tempting not to go for a dip, and the loungers around the edge are perfect for relaxing with a good book. There’s also a Jacuzzi and a steam room - all preparing you for one of their Heavenly Spa treatments.
The Heavenly Spa treatments
Treatments at The Westin London City are an experience in their own right. From their signature Three Stones Massage Ritual to their Meridian Flow Golden Ritual, their spa experiences are really built around these exquisite therapies that work to provide holistic wellbeing but also produce visible results.
