The Dorchester Spa

London's decadent art deco spa
Situated on the bottom level of The Dorchester hotel, The Dorchester Spa combines art deco style with timeless elegance. The waiting area is graced by a lovely pearl chandelier and furnished with crisp-white sofas, and the relaxation lounge features elegant chaise loungers and photographs of ballerinas. 

When it comes to treatments, the spa’s aromatherapy massages are particularly popular with guests, as well as the Footloose foot massage, for tired, achy feet, and the Sleep Deeply massage, which will prepare you for restful slumber. Be sure to spend some quality time in the spa’s steam room and showers, as well.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The relaxing space brings a bit of 1930s glamour, with decadent touches like the pearl chandelier in the entryway, the deep navy-blue walls in the relaxation room, and the gold, white and bronze touches throughout the spa.
  • The Dorchester Spa is the only place in London where you’ll find the Spatisserie, an intimate space for spa guests and restaurant goers where you can have afternoon tea, traditional biscuits and pastries, and champagne and cocktails.
  • The Dorchester Spa works with experts in the spa and skincare industry to bring guests a unique treatment menu.
  • Aromatherapy Associates’ essential oils allow guests to choose a scent for their treatment based on physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
  • We highly recommend the Carol Joy London Facial, which works to revitalize, firm and lift the skin with the luxurious skincare products.
Things to Know
  • Make sure you allow time before and after your spa treatment to enjoy the spectacular wet areas.
  • Carol Joy London anti-aging products, which contain golden millet oil in its purest, most concentrated form (an oil said to enhance skin, nails and hair), are used in the facials tagged Carol Joy.
  • Additionally, the sleek spa also collaborates with Kerstin Florian, which produces a line of products used for the ancient healing traditions of Europe.
The Treatments
  • Whether you’re feeling the stress of daily life, travel or just want to escape into a little luxury for a few hours, the massages at The Dorchester Spa will suit your fancy.
  • The soothing spa offers a suite of massages ranging from a traditional Swedish massage to a Thai massage, and even couples and pregnancy massages.
  • The Aromatherapy Massages are the most popular, as they allow guests to choose their own oils, based on their mood that day.
  • If your feet are aching from a long day touring the city, the Footloose foot massage will relieve your tired soles.
  • With just the right pressure to relax you into slumber, The Sleep Deeply head-to-toe massage is the option for those who need a little assistance with getting a good night’s sleep.
The Facilities
  • While the spa doesn’t offer a separate thermal area, you’ll find showers, bath stalls and male and female aromatic steam rooms in the locker rooms.
  • The locker rooms have a more traditional design, with wood lockers and cream-colored vanity stations.
  • There are also “experience showers” in both the male and female locker rooms.
  • Whether you’re enjoying a simple mani-pedi or a more involved signature treatment at this Four-Star spa, you should top off the experience with some quality time in the spa’s steam rooms and showers.
