It's that time of the year again, when your body just needs a little reviving after a year of work. Know the feeling? Feel refreshed (mentally, physically and romantically) and treat yourselves to a stay at one of these luxurious Victorian spa retreats.
A riot of red roses greets you in the soaring lobby of the Corinthia Hotel, a pale, grand building in Whitehall, just a stone’s throw from the Thames in London. Whizz up to the mezzanine level and you enter ESPA Life, a soothing, labyrinthine marbled space over four floors that burrow deep into the London clay. Though you may feel like you could quite easily get lost, there is always someone reassuringly zen to lead you back to where you need to be.
It didn’t take long for the magic of celebrity-fave wellness retreat, Kamalaya, to weave its charm. One night, in fact. I realised that for the first time in what felt like forever, there was no chatter – not around me, nor in my head. That elusive peace, which had been so hard to find in my busy everyday life at home, did still exist.
"New year, new me" – sound familiar? If you vowed to treat yourselves, take care of your body and reconnect with each other, make the new year your excuse to visit these sumptuous wellness retreats.
