The subterranean spa at K West is characterised by a beautiful combination of wooden floors, glass divides where steamy cabins and icy rooms await. Facilities are all about relaxation and rejuvenation. There is a gym in a separate part of the hotel, but in the main spa everything focuses around the heat and ice ethos. It all starts with London’s first snow paradise. Chilled to -15*C, this cabin is reminiscent of a snow drift and is designed to complement the spa’s hot-cold therapy, alternating between steam and ice environments. There’s also a glass panelled hydrotherapy pool, a Scandinavian sauna, sanarium, steam room, foot spa and little booths down the side of the room that allow you to relax in semi-privacy.
When you’ve finished with the heat and ice, there is a relaxation room complete with headsets should you wish to shut out any of the surrounding silence, as well as a sleep inducing Sun Meadow room designed to offer gentle light therapy to help relieve the symptoms of S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder). As if that’s not enough, there is a long list of holistic massages, facials, rituals and finishing touches as well.
