The Health Club at One Aldwych doesn’t have a separate relaxation lounge, so you’ll have to unwind in the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa’s waiting room. Sit on the cornflower-blue sofa with lime and maroon pillows, or one of the two silver chairs with round yellow seats. Thumb through the Financial Times, Daily Mail, The Telegraph, The Times or Vogue while you sip plain, cucumber or orange-lemon water. But it won’t be all that relaxing, since all gym-goers walk through the waiting room to access the fitness center.
The London spa’s small locker room is lined with light wood lockers. A black padded bench sits in front. There’s a shower with slate-granite tile and dispensers of shampoo and conditioner. A dark dual-sink area has mirrors covering the wall, and a purple orchid sits in a silver square vase. Silver dispensers give out facial cleanser, toner and lotion, and spray-on deodorant and cotton swabs are offered. There’s also a machine that will speed up drying time on your wet swimsuit, in case you decide to take a dip in the beautiful 59-foot-long pool with mood lighting and a big screen that shows everything from thick clouds to underwater scenes.
