West London's Best Kept Secret

LONDON, UK - Relaxation is not an indulgence, but a necessity in today's hectic world. The award-winning K Spa located in West London offers a range of luxurious treatments that allow you to combat stress, rebalance your emotional well-being, and revitalise your body at the same time.


I start my session at K Spa in a glass paneled Hydrotherapy Pool which features warm bubbling water and a ceiling adorned with twinkling lights. Lying comfortably on a special bed inside the pool, I close my eyes and allow the water to take the tension away from my body.

Wet Spa is a great place to relax and unwind before the treatment. The area is well-designed and allows the guests to use a wide range of facilities such as the Scandinavian Sauna and Steam, elegant foot baths, and London’s first Snow Paradise (developed by German Spa specialists Klaffs).

Special build in wall soft loungers - called Kuddles - make a perfect stop between using different spa facilities.

Wearing a white spa robe and stylish flip-flops, I enter the K Spa reception where, after a warm welcome, I am offered a delicious herbal tea and a comfortable armchair to wait for my therapist. The ambience is really relaxing and for a short while you can actually forget that you are still in the heart of London.

K-Cleanse is a perfect combination of a gentle exfoliation and a relaxing massage. It is designed to deep cleanse, soften, hydrate and refresh your skin. The therapist uses a special glass cup which - together with slow lymphatic drainage movements - helps not only to detoxify the body, but also to improve blood circulation. The whole session lasts for 85 minutes.

This must-have treatment uses extracts of minerals and precious stones (Amethyst, Sapphire and Ruby) to energize, tone and balance the skin. It also has an anti-cellulite effect.

The session ends with a face treatment: a deep cleanse and tone, exfoliation and a wonderful face massage which gives my skin a plump and radiant look. A detoxifying drink in a RelaKs Zone - a special after-treatment area with comfortable beds, dimmed lights, relaxing music and lots of fashion magazines - is a pleasant surprise.

I leave the K Spa feeling physically and mentally refreshed with a strong resolution to come back again.
