Spare no expense at a Park Lane spa
London’s Park Lane is one of the most exclusive addresses in the world – just ask Mr Monopoly. So it’s not surprising to find that the leafy avenue is lined with luxury hotels housing even more luxurious spas. The Montcalm Hotel Spa is one of them.
Behind a modest-looking Edwardian façade, this 5-star hotel embodies contemporary luxury, and its spa is the piece de resistance.
Treatments draw inspiration from Thailand, Japan and Sweden, and use exclusive products from top brands such as Elemis, Ytsara and Carita. The signature ‘Gold Perfection Facial Treatment’ uses the famed Carita Pro-life machine to tighten, lift and smooth the skin around your face and neck, and a male version is also available (‘Pro Lifting Pour Homme’), which will give you that ‘just back from holiday’ look in an hour and a half.
The Montcalm Hotel spa is open until 11pm – perfect for a post-theatre massage (well, some of those plays are pretty tense) or a late night dip in the pool. The spa is also kitted out with a Swedish sauna, a steam room, heated loungers and a modern gym. But really, the Montcalm Hotel Spa is all about the indulgence of its high-end therapies.
Treatments are not cheap, but then again, this is Park Lane. Pack the platinum credit card and treat yourself to the sort of top-to-toe luxury that only serious money can buy.
