Though there’s less of a business vibe than in the hotel itself, Bulgari’s underground spa is equally as striking. Lined with Vicenza stone, the impressive urban retreat is one of the largest in London and prides itself on Oriental healing methods. The reclining bubble beds inside the Hydro Vitality Pool make light work of aching muscles but it’s Bodyism - the holy grail of wellness regimes – that we’re here for.
Most of the treatments on the menu come courtesy of ESPA but a couple of them have been fashioned exclusively for Bulgari. The Thai escape full body signature treatment for example that will leave you feeling reborn. Set aside a good few hours to relish the serenity that surrounds the place – leaving early will result in unremitting pangs of regret.
Top treatment: It may come at a price but the synchronised four handed massage is an indulgence well worth splurging on. Beginning with a cocooning foot ritual, this treatment harnesses the tension-melting properties of hot volcanic stones to bring about complete and utter bliss – aah!
What to pack: A heavy-duty sports bottle. Paper spa cups just don’t cut it where Bodyism workouts are concerned.
