Young professionals and families buy and rent property in and around Wimbledon Village because this part of London offers the perfect mix of peaceful tranquillity and easy access to central London – plus Ofsted-rated schools.
When combined with the Village’s wide selection of chic shops, cafes and bars, this part of London offers residents an enviable lifestyle.
The inescapable pressures of modern life, however, mean the health of Wimbledon’s residents is under greater pressure.
Whether your greatest concern is the effect of Crossrail 2 on the price of property in south-west London or how to gain Centre Court tickets for the 2017 Wimbledon tournament, a visit to a nearby spa helps you switch off, relax, recharge, reflect, detox and beautify.
Visits to spas are rapidly becoming an integral part of a London lifestyle, which is why Robert Holmes & Co picks out three of the best in easy reach of our three locations in Wimbledon and Mayfair…
1 Gina Conway
21/23 Wimbledon Hill Road SW19 7NE
One of three Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spas in London, guests at this Wimbledon venue can feel luxuriously pampered, refreshed and revitalised by the holistic treatments on offer as part of the bespoke plan created to cater for their individual needs.
Tailored spa pamper packages are available for men and women and all use Aveda’s aromatic plant and botanical based skincare range.
Treatments include an express manicure or pedicure or for those with more time a Plant Peel Manicure or an Island Retreat facial are on the menu.
Alternatively, the Enbrightenment Facial uses a six-step skincare system that helps reduce sun spots and dark patches and leaves the skin glowing.
Why not indulge in a Harmonising Indulgence Facial & Massage? This treatment starts with a back, neck and scalp massage and continues with a custom blended Aveda facial.
2 Spa at the Mandarin Oriental
Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, 66 Knightsbridge SW1X 7LA
With its opulent surroundings, crystal steam room and vitality pool, this venue – just 1.3 miles from Mayfair – lives up to its reputation as one of London’s most luxurious day spas. Arranged over three levels, the dark wood interior highlighted with oriental blooms, water features and stone sculptures is designed for relaxation.
Clients are encouraged to book time rather than specific treatments to get a perfect bespoke service. The Customised Aromatherapy Facial – a tailor-made, indulgent treatment that makes use of the specialist oils of Aromatherapy Associates – is a favourite among guests.
The new fitness and wellbeing facility has been tailored to the cosmopolitan, luxury visitor and boasts state-of-the-art equipment and a 17-metre indoor swimming pool.
3 Chuan Spa at The Langham
1c Portland Place W1B 1JA
Winner of the World Luxury Spa Awards Best Luxury Spa of 2013 as well as a Forbes Star award, the Chuan Spa’s philosophy has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine, and this is reflected in the treatments on offer at this luxury experience just 0.8 miles north of Mayfair.
Step through a moon shaped gateway and you are enveloped in a world of rituals, cocoons, awakenings and retreats for face, body, fingers and toes.
The treatment facilities include aroma steam rooms, saunas, a vitality pool, a salt sauna and a 16-metre swimming pool which combined with The Langham’s exceptional service, makes the Chuan Spa the perfect place to recharge.
After your treatment and bathing ritual, why not take afternoon tea in the place where it was invented and now overseen by Albert and Michel Roux Jr?
A luxury spa experience can help relieve many sources of stress, but unfortunately it will not help maximise the value of your property. If you are buying or selling property in Wimbledon or Mayfair, contact Robert Holmes & Co today.
Like the luxury spas we’ve highlighted, Robert Holmes & Co provides a truly tailored service built on trust, professionalism and an excellent reputation.
