With all the talk of self-care and wellness at the moment it can be hard to separate true necessity from self-indulgence. But when it comes to taking some time for yourself, there really can be no compromise. It’s hard to completely switch off from the world when we’re all so plugged into our phones and social media, so spending the day at a spa, with your phone safely locked away in the changing rooms, is a great idea to get some distance from your everyday worries. If you’re looking for the best places to indulge in some TLC and a treatment or two, here are some of the best London day spas, with gorgeous pools, healthy food options, and plenty of gorgeous relaxation spaces.
Best London Day Spas
Bulgari Spa, Bulgari
If it’s a super sleek and stylish city retreat you’re looking for, you’ll find it at the Bulgrari, home of London’s longest swimming pool and gorgeous cushioned beds to lounge in. The treatments on offer are based on traditional oriental practices, with the enzyme facial a favourite.

Bamford Haybarn Spa at the Berkeley, Knightsbridge
OK, now might not be the time for rooftop lounging, but when it is, there aren’t many better places than The Berkeley’s chic pool space. It also transforms into an indoor space for cold or rainy weather so if you want to lounge, drink champagne (or green juice) and recharge in peace, this is the spot for you.

ESPA at Corinthia
With white marble changing rooms and fluffy robes and slippers, your relaxation will begin from the moment you enter ESPA at Corinthia. The pool is perfect for floating in for restoring a calm and quiet mind and the ESPA treatments on offer are some of the most performance-focused in the city.

The Lanesborough Club & Spa
If you’re looking for a really indulgent day, head to the Lanesborough, where spa butlers will polish your shoes while you relax. There are luxury La Prairie facials or stress-relieving massages to choose from, and you can even opt for an overnight wellness package if you want to turn your visit into a spa-cation.

The Ned’s Club Spa
An A-list favourite, when it is open the hammam is well worth checking out. For now, Cowshed facials, massages and mani/pedis are a must, or the flashy new Fire & Ice Cryo treatment, which sees the skin chilled to temperatures that help to boost collagen production.
