ESPA Life at Corinthia

A glamorous London spa
VERIFIED LUXURY
It's all about the facility here at ESPA Life at Corinthia. Guests will find chic, white décor throughout the salon, in addition to glam crystal chandeliers. There are two waiting areas that will keep guests busy for hours thanks to a stunning co-ed thermal floor on the lower level, which has an amphitheatre-style sauna with a glass enclosure, a pool, large ice fountain, and steam room. And in the upstairs waiting areas, there are heated stone chaise lounge chairs and even sleeping pods for when napping is in order.

The entire spa is quiet and restful — this is not the kind of place where you’d host a bachelorette party. And that's precisely what makes it great. With all of the pampering to be had at the spa coupled with its location at the convenient and central Corinthia Hotel, guests will be in for a real treat at this splendid oasis.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• Women enjoy a bright, white, glimmering space to lounge, while men enjoy a darker, richer, but equally exquisite, relaxing space.

• As if those amenities aren’t enough, the spa also offers sleep pods — padded beds separated by curtains in a dark room — for spa guests who’d like to take a catnap or relax with a magazine in between treatments.

• Make your experience at this ESPA super-personalized with three hours in your very own suite equipped with a steam and sauna. The treatment includes a Rasul healing mud ritual, 30 minutes of people-free relaxation time, and your choice of another two-hour treatment.

• As with many other Four-Star ESPA massages, you’ll also have your choice of aromatherapy oils. Don't be afraid to check in with your therapist throughout the treatment if special attention to certain areas is required.

• The refreshments provided are appropriately healthy and light. In the waiting area, you’ll find a glass bowl containing grapes, oranges and strawberries, and in the sleeping pod, you’ll find four types of dried fruit and nuts presented in an elegant silver dish.
Things to Know
• The waiting areas are located one floor down from reception.

• Before you venture down, check out the small cocktail lounge and food menu available at tables in the front of the spa, near the check-in area.

• If you have a request, pick up one of the phones on the floor to reach staff who will respond to any need.
The Treatments
• Meant to revitalize your body, a therapist will apply Shiatsu techniques and aromatherapy oils to soothe sore muscles.

• Let a therapist completely de-stress you according to your needs (we recommend the hot stones, in Balinese fashion).

• As with many other Four-Star ESPA massages, you’ll also have your choice of aromatherapy oils. Don't be afraid to check in with your therapist throughout the treatment if special attention to certain areas is required.

• Add a hot stone foot massage to ESPA's advanced or essential pedicure, the latter of which includes a paraffin wax, as a cure for the weary, cold feet you get from walking around London.

• ESPA Life helps you take a well-rounded approach to spa-ing; it offers an initial consultation and follow-up sessions for acupuncture and herbal medicine.
The Facilities
• The wet areas at ESPA Life at Corinthia are among the best we’ve seen.

• While the male and female waiting areas offer their own saunas and steams, there’s also an entire coed thermal floor situated on the bottom floor of the Four-Star spa.

• This dreamy, deep-blue space, contrasted with striking white furniture and illuminated by tiny, starry recessed lighting, offers a silvery steel swimming pool with built-in seats, a vitality thermal pool with air and water massage jets, and a large, black mosaic steam room.

• As with the waiting areas, the thermal floor offers heated stone chaises, but perhaps its most impressive feature is the glass-enclosed, amphitheater-style sauna, the top benches of which are flush with the floor, providing views of the thermal floor on each side.

• There’s also an ice fountain just outside the sauna for therapeutic use in between long soaks in hot air and water.
