We can’t go on vacation to the mo but we have found a way to still have a mini Mediterranean break, and it doesn’t involve a passport or plane. In fact, the only travel required is in central London and down to the basement of a five-star hotel. The Jiva Spa at St James’s Court Hotel (part of the Taj Hotels Group) combines the best Indian wellness philosophies with products and therapies from the British brand Temple Spa, which means you can enjoy treatments such as aromatherapy massages, luxury champagne and truffle facials and Indian treatments. head massage.
We recently tried the 90 Minute Mediterranean Mini-Pause Treatment created by Temple Spa and, as the name suggests, it’s designed to make you feel like you’ve just gone on vacation. The experience begins with a full body scrub to make your skin glow, followed by a massage to smooth out those knots and a tailor-made facial treatment. It is truly the complete work! And if 90 minutes of bliss is not enough, clients who book a treatment can also take advantage of the vitality pool, hammam, sauna, emotional shower and relaxation room.
Since the spa is underground, it feels like an oasis of calm and a million miles from the mad city above. The long treatment ensures you leave super relaxed, so if you’re feeling a bit tired or just plain tired of sitting on the sofa, go for a little Med mini-break.
