I was given a day spa as a special gift and went with a friend. The booking process was good over the phone. Arrived mid morning and started day using the thermal floor. This is the smartest looking spa I have ever been to and the thermal floor looked super slick, with the most impressive sauna with glass walls. The vitality pool was almost as big as the swimming pool with different types of seats and jets.

After using the floor I had the first of my treatments, a massage. The treatment rooms were like little cocoons, round with good soft lighting and two doors to ensure no outside noise crept in. The massage was good, but more impressive was my facial which left me totally relaxed. Lunch was good, but a little bit of carb to go with my fish would have made it perfect! My final treatment was a pedicure, a different feeling room with the first daylight I'd seen!

Finished the day in a sleep pod which was enormous with lots of cushions and a blanket to snuggle under!

The changing rooms were smart, clean and well equipped, the showers were amazing!

One of the most impressive things was how quiet everywhere felt, we went on a Saturday and there were lots of people using the spa but it never felt busy or noisy.

Overall an expensive day but well worth it as a special treat.

Thank you for your lovely review of your experience at ESPA Life at Corinthia spa. What a great gift to have been given, it certainly sounds like you had the perfect spa day. The Thermal Floor is superb, with a swimming pool, vitality pool with massage jets, and Ampitheatre sauna and a separate steam room. We are really pleased you had the opportunity to experience the expert treatments, especially the personalised massage and facial which left you relaxed and ready for lunch. The ESPA Life Lounge offers a selection of light healthy lunches, low on carbohydrates, and packed full of vitamins, great for your 5 a day. The Finishing Studio has been specially designed for manicures and pedicures to leave you looking lovely from top to toe. Our sleep pods are very inviting, the room very warm and cosy with a central fire, the perfect place to relax after full use of the spa, before one of our invigorating rain showers. The spa is a haven from the hustle and bustle of London, and the calm and peaceful atmosphere is just one of its many pleasure. We very much look forward to welcoming you once again for another special treat.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager

I booked two personalised massages 80 min treatment at £.145.00 each
The treatment room was very nice, heated bed ,dimmed lighting. However I feel disappointed with the massage technique. The movements were monotonous, included mainly stroking ,some kneading with knuckles, the legs and arms were rushed, the movements didn't cover the whole of the treated area. Abdomen wasn't covered at all.
For that cost I would expect top class treatment, but it was very average, so I feel disappointed.
I have massages on very regular bases, this service didn't meet my expectations of top spa services. Also the massage itself didn't last 80 min. That was the entire treatment time including the conversation with the therapist.
I would give the treatment 5/10. Was it worth the money? Not really.

I have visited several spa's over the last few years and I must say, this was hands down the best one I have been to. I decided to take my partner here for his birthday during our stay at the Corinthia. The staff were extremely welcoming and the first thing that hits you upon entering the spa is how quiet it is! the decor is both modern and cosy at the same time, and the pools on the thermal floor are very relaxing. My partner loved the sleeping pods and the treatments themselves were excellent.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SPA TO EVERYONE! :)

I had an 80 minute deep tissue spa while staying at the Corinthia. I was very impressed with the spa. It is very modern looking. It has an impressive reception area. The changing rooms are very clean and modern looking with all the amenities you would want- combs, toothbrush, hairdryer, etc. The steam room and the sauna were both very nice. There was also a relaxation room with a fireplace in the middle that was very nice. The massage itself was excellent. I would highly recommend this spa.
