The Lanesborough Club & Spa

A sumptuous sanctuary in central London

Seconds from Hyde Park Corner, The Lanesborough Club & Spa is a lavender-scented city-center sanctuary for all the senses. Sprawled generously across nearly 18,000 square feet on the ground floor of Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star The Lanesborough, this retreat delivers exacting service, first-class facilities and a holistic approach to treatments, ensuring you’ll emerge feeling pampered from head to toe.

Classic touches, such as oil paintings, dark oak paneling and velvet armchairs, echo the 19th-century hotel, while facilities (such as the Romanesque hydrotherapy pool); Ila, Tata Harper, HydraFacial and Royal Fern product lines; and a diverse menu of services represent industry-leading ingredients and methods.

Partnerships with leading wellness, fitness and beauty experts add extra kudos to this London favorite, which attracts a well-heeled and celebrity clientele seeking results.

As you soak up everything this extra-luxe health club has to offer, you’ll find it’s much more than just a pretty space.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Luxurious décor, created by design studio 1508 London, mixes natural materials, contrasting textures and colors to cocooning effect: mahogany leather-clad walls and antique mirrors meld deliciously with peacock-toned silk wallpaper, sea-green polished plaster, gold-leaf ceilings and white onyx.
  • Spa butlers are at your beck and call. You’ll find “press for service” buttons dotted around the locker rooms, hydro pool and relaxation areas, should you need a shirt pressed, your favorite magazine or a flute of champagne.
  • From meditative crystal healing and bio-energy mud bathing to a classic manicure, there’s something at this Knightsbridge spa for everyone.
  • With reclining leather armchairs, open faux-flame fires, table lamps and an array of refreshments, the luxurious relaxation area feels like a suave cocktail lounge with a refreshingly unisex appeal.
  • The treatment rooms are some of the largest in London, with extra-wide beds that adjust to your body shape and temperature, and provide comfort during back massages with silicon face rests.

Things to Know

  • The thermal facilities and hydro pool are for the exclusive use of hotel guests and members, but there are other ways in: you’ll receive complimentary access with spa packages, and day memberships are also available.
  • Arrive an hour before your treatment to make the most of the thermal facilities, hydro pool and relaxation areas.
  • All services start and end in the relaxation lounge, where you’ll find fresh and dried fruit, nuts, herbal teas and water. When you’re taken into your treatment suite, you’ll get to choose the soundtrack for your session.

The Treatments

  • The excellent HydraFacial will cleanse, detox, exfoliate, brighten, extract and hydrate your skin. The Lanesborough offers an even more upscale take on the treatment with the SW1 24 Carat Gold HydraFacial, which builds on the six-step process with LED light therapy, electro-muscular stimulation and a gold mask. 
  • For something different, book the Tata Harper Awakening and Energizing Body Ritual. In addition to a body scrub, two body masks and a massage, this invigorating service includes aromatherapy and singing bowls.
  • Explore the anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and antioxidant qualities of CBD with the 105-minute Ila CBD Immersion. 

The Facilities

  • Along with a pink mosaic sauna, steam room and experience shower in the ladies’ locker room, you’ll find a vanity area with mirrors, blowdry tools and Ila amenities. In the gents’ area, along with slippers and robes, there’s a bio-sauna delivering a dry heat. Both lead to the shared hydro pool area lined with toweled loungers.
  • Enjoy a service with a friend or loved one in the couples treatment room, which comes with a double shower and a mud chamber.
