The area
Address
Neighborhood: Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

Went on a Sunday after a stressful week at work, went to use the SPA, always immaculate and very friendly professional staff here to welcome you, this is a huge place, makes you feel you are somewhere else. I booked the dr Barbara Sturm signature facial for 1 hour, my therapist was Marija, well experienced and knowledgable, doing her job with so much passion. When I left I felt so good, giving my skin such a lift, was so good that you fall asleep, the stress goes away… I definitely recommend it, a great thing to do to release the stress and pumper yourself.
Thank you Marija and the team of Espa.
I will be back.

What an amazing place!
I recently visited the spa as a treat for my birthday with friend and we had such a lovely experience. As soon as you walk in, you immediately feel a sense of calm wash over you. The facilities are all beautiful and immaculate. I particularly enjoyed lazing around in the jacuzzi before my treatment. Evry member of the staff was helpful warm and friendly. My inner calm massage was so relaxing! We both left the Spa feeling totally relaxed, without a care in the world.i do recommend the spa to anyone looking to enjoy a few blissful hours to re-energise the senses and the soul.

As always my experience at the “ESPA life at Corinthia” was extremely positive. As I got there, I was welcomed by a lovely staff member who was very helpful and offered me a delicious smoothie while I was filling my medical form.
My therapist Kumi explaining to me about the treatment that I was about to receive and putting me at an ease. She was also very professional, always being careful with my body and really looking after it. The treatment was very personalised, based on my needs.
Their facilities were spotless and cleanliness was kept to a very high standard.
I can definitely say that I left the venue feeling a lot better than when I arrived there.
I would highly recommend their services to anyone who asked me, because the attention to details make this place unique.

This was my second visit to the ESPA Life at Corinthia, and yet again it was an afternoon of luxury, relaxation and pure bliss. As soon as I walked through to the spa, any worries are left at the door and the peaceful atmosphere awaits to meet you along with the lovely welcoming team.
I had booked in for a full body deep tissue massage with Vanuela, we discussed together how my treatment would go and what my expectations and wants were. She was incredibly informative and personalised my experience to my exact needs and gave me suggestions. The massage its self was incredible, I felt such a release of tension, some of it I didn't know I had! The massage ended with an incredible scalp massage and hair mask which I would definitely recommend it was the perfect way for the treatment to finish... not that I wanted it to end!
Vanuela also took the time to inform me of the safety measures that were in place for the guest and the team, I must say this did not dampen the experience at all. The spa had taken on the "new norm" and did not shy away from safety while remaining a relaxing and beautiful space. My first visit was pre-covid and this was just as relaxing as my first time!
I cannot wait to visit again, thank you so much to Vanuela and the rest of the team!

Amazing experience!
I visited the spa yesterday…. The least I could do was write this great review for them.
It was my first day out since lockdown, I needed somewhere I felt comfortable and safe as I was a little nervous to do ‘normal’ things again.
Check in was streamline – was asked to wash hands upon arrival and a temperature check was taken. Luckily, I was all good! I was checked in by a lady wearing a mask, she was very welcoming and made me feel at ease. Then completed a medical health form, all touch points were wiped down before and after use.
I was given a tour around the facilities and then shown to the Ladies Changing area and shown to my locker, usually social distancing can be a little awkward, but the receptionist kept her distance but not making me feel uncomfortable. Clean Robe and slippers were already prepared for me in a fresh bag.
I booked a two-hour treatment, so I was entitled to use the spa facilities one hour before and one hour after. I went to the pool and they had capacity signs for the facilities which I kept to and thankfully so did others. Last time I came (before covid) the Heated Marble Loungers were close together but this time they were a safe distance away from each other. It was so nice to see staff present on the pool area, cleaning, and wiping down everywhere. I felt so relaxed, it was so nice to see the pandemic has not stopped this hotel providing top 5-star standards.
The kind therapist greeted me for my treatment - obviously, no handshake this time but her warm welcome was more than enough! My Therapist wore a face mask and visor, and she washed her hands before my treatment. My treatment was very relaxing and just what I needed. They had such a lovely touch during my consultation, we did a sensory test, and this decided what oil would be best for me. I chose the Soothing Body Oil which I purchased to take home! After my treatment, I was offered a glass of water, the therapist washed her hands again and guided me to the sleep pods – YES PLEASE!
Yet again, I am so please with my overall experience and I am thoroughly looking forward to returning soon.

Impossibile to decide which part of the experience makes this place so unique, the good energy, peaceful atmosphere, the kindness and attention to details, the variety and excellence of treatments was beyond words. It wasn’t the first time I had visited the spa but I can definitely say that every time I’m more and more surprised about the overall experience. A welcoming drink was offered at the beginning of the treatment and at no point I felt rushed in or out of the rooms. It makes me feel very welcomed. I am a big fan of their facial treatments, but this time I choose an Inner Calm Massage of 90 minutes, indescribable, I felt so good and it was all I needed. The therapist Carla has been excellent, friendly, professional and explained everything beforehand, also asking my preference regarding the excellent body oils they have. The staff at the reception was also very friendly, professional and clearly experienced in customer service.
Can’t wait to go back!

What an amazingly wonderful relaxing afternoon visiting Espa at the Corinthia spa. The facilities in this spa are so beautifully remarkable and completely second to none, I would most definitely have to say this is absolutely the best spa in London I have visited. Every fine detail from the welcoming, the guidance to the superbly thought out facilities, the treatment and even to the farewell exit are all so extremely well executed and superbly thought out by the highly professional staff there.. My treatment with Alexandra was simply incredible and I had never seen such fine attention to detail from a treatment before. The enquiry of what my energy levels were at that present time in order to determine which oil she would use for my massage was nothing I had experienced before and something that really resonated as truly special to deliver such a bespoke experience for the individual guest. A huge thank you to her for taking away all of the stresses and tension of the day and leaving me feeling totally rejuvenated and relaxed, she was amazing and I would highly recommend her. I will 100% be returning for this extremely impressive experience again to this wonderful 5 star plus spa.

It was simply the best of best! Carla was amazing, taking care of everything I could need and everyone was very polite! From the changing area to the sauna everything looked good, was clean and very classy. They respect relaxation a lot with quiet zones all over, allowing a sense of calm in their vicinity. Special shout-out to Saviana at the reception too!

Wonderful piece of heaven. So welcoming the moment you enter. After payment for the treatments we were shown the facilities. Next we settled down for a lunch that was definitely up there in terms of quality, taste and price.
The facilities are vast, dark and designed to transcend you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The treatments: mine a massage with hot stones and my daughter all over stress reliever were professionally executed. The head massage which was part of it really got to work. Afterwards we settled in the sleep pods, a must for finishing off the day.
Highly recommend this as a treat and I plan to return soon

We chose to have a spa day for my fiancés birthday, when booking the spa and treatments Kirsty couldn’t have been more helpful! She made things easy, simple and clear when booking. We had never experienced anything like this together before, which is why it was a little daunting at first given how big the hotel was. However from the second we walked through the doors we were given the friendliest welcome. A member of staff took us to the spa where we were then welcomed with a seat and an option of tea, coffee or smoothie whilst we waited for the guest in front to check in first. The smell and the ambiance before we had actually reached the facilities were very relaxing, so I was very excited to see what was next. After waiting a short time we got shown down to the separate changing area where the lovely gentleman explained to us were to go, how to use the locker key and where to meet each other once we were changed, so that we were able to enjoy the spa together. The ladies changing rooms were an absolute dream! They had relaxing teas, fresh fruit, water, gowns and slippers for everyone. You didn’t need to take anything with you other than your swim suit. When we walked into the spa itself We were immediately relaxed and all my worries about life and work never crossed my mind. It was like a secret world where it felt like no one else existed and nothing else in the world mattered. The music was heaven. The spa was warm and mesmerising. There was many things to use and try and many hanging facilities for you to hang your robes on and an ice cold water machine at hand. After relaxing and chatting to one another and having a general life catch-up that we find hard to find time for due to busy lives, a lovely lady, Oana, came to the spa to take me for my treatment. She has very friendly and caring. Once in the treatment room she made me feel relaxed and at ease. Asking questions on how I wanted to feel and which areas she would like me to focus on most. The treatment itself was out of this world. I felt the most relaxed I’ve ever felt in my life. She gave me advice and took me to my partner who had just came out of his treatment where we could then go back and enjoy the facilities again. When getting changed in the ladies changing rooms, it was easy as they had everything from shampoo, shower gel and conditioner to cleansers and creams. I had a peppermint tea whilst getting ready which felt like I was having my own mini spa experience on its own. The whole experience and every intricate detail was second to none! Staff are the most helpful and friendliest of people and are a credit to the hotel. I am so excited to come back. Thank you for this experience.
