High Street Kensington has to be one of the most convenient and aesthetically pleasing areas in London, so it is no surprise that it’s a popular location for a spa hotel. Accordingly, the Emotion Leisure centre at Kensington Close Hotel extends its convenience aspect with a comprehensive range of facilities that include a gym, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, studio classes and eighteen meter indoor swimming pool. The environment is supremely modern – exuding athletic buzz, but providing respite from the city and aching limbs alike with Elemis products in a host of pampering facets such as facials, manicures, pedicures, eye treatments, self-tanning, body wraps, and waxing.
At a glance
With a venue as convenient as this, it is perhaps no surprise that it caters to business and private events with conference rooms for up to three hundred and fifty delegates as well as a ‘secret garden’ for hire.
The location is not short on restaurants, but the hotel offers light bites while its main restaurants are being renovated.
A few minutes on foot from High Street Kensington tube station, the hotel is located in one of the most picturesque as well as convenient parts of London with Kensington Palace and its gardens on your doorstep.
Leisure Break Venue
The hotel has all the facilities for working out and chilling out but no specialised spa area.
High Street Kensington is something of a microcosm for all major retailers – it has all the major brands on a more boutique scale.
Spa & Leisure
Hotel & Accommodation
With around seven hundred rooms, all demonstrating unimposingly modern design where neutral tones are only interrupted by the odd red wall or throw, the hotel caters to holiday and business travellers alike being both centrally located and close to all public transport links … although you are pretty much within walking distance of any amenities you could possibly desire – after all, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge live practically next door; if it’s good enough for them …
When it comes to dining the local area is well catered to, whether it be coffee in the afternoon or an evening meal, and Kensington Close has its own fare to add into the mix. Ordinarily, the venue plays host to the carvery style Senses Restaurant and international Blue Smoke Restaurant – but as they are currently out of action being refurbished the Lounge Bar provides a selection of lighter meals in a relaxed, contemporary environment.
