In a city as distinctive as London, you have to be truly special to stand out — and three new luxury spas are proving they're up to the challenge. Offering so much more than traditional 60-minute massages and steam sessions, these next-generation wellness escapes are bringing inventive treatments, state-of-the-art fitness programs, and ultra-luxurious relaxation to the Big Smoke. Read on for an entirely new wellness experience.

The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts' second London outpost is mastering the art of haute wellness. Opened in June — roughly six months after the hotel's debut — the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square is the work of design collaborators Joseph Caspari and Mio Shubaya, who beautified the subterranean space with vivid gold mosaic tiles, classical columns, and sparkling silver and bronze details.

The 14-metre-long swimming pool surrounded by columns with glistening vine motifs and marble flooring is a highlight, as are treatments by such top international brands as Amala, Espa, and Dr. Burgener. Each of the eight treatment rooms is a sanctuary in its own right with dome-shaped ceilings and warm natural wood panelling

Club Relax at the Ned

The 252-room Ned — a retro-glam collaboration between hotel virtuosos Soho House Group and the New York–based Sydell Group — debuted in April in the City of London's former Midland Bank. A tribute to the building's original design, the hotel's Club Relax spa is adorned with vintage 1920s- and '30s-style décor and furnishings (plush upholstery, dark woods, bold wallpaper motifs, and art-deco lighting) sprinkled with whimsical touches.

The opulent space features a sauna, steam room, hammam, and a decadent 20-metre indoor pool, as well as a Cowshed parlour offering signature spa services. Other primping options include the Cheeky nail salon, the speakeasy-inspired Ned's Barbershop, make-up artist Trish McEvoy's Powder Room, and a Miguel Perez hair salon.

The Lanesborough Club & Spa

Housed between tony Mayfair and Belgravia, the Lanesborough Club & Spa is every centimetre the extravagant wellness facility its ritzy address would suggest. Inaugurated in March, the elegant and ornate space, measuring an unrivalled 1670-square-metre, offers hotel guests and members a one-stop spot for optimum fitness, relaxation, and socialising.

Top-notch amenities include bespoke workout plans devised by vetted expert trainers, indulgent spa treatments by brands like La Prairie and Anastasia Achilleos, and healthy cuisine (and cocktails) conceptualised by the Lanesborough's Michelin-starred chef Florian Favario. Not sure where to start? Consult with one of the spa's attentive butlers, who can tailor every visit to your individual needs.
