Spa Review: The Claridges Spa

by HGAT | 20/11/2018

As someone who is always on their phone/laptop, my neck and shoulders are riddled with knots. Add in a baby on top of that with no sleep and hey presto, I’m the cranky hunch back of notre dame. I needed some major TLC! BW, so kindly, booked me in for a 90 minute Swedish massage at the Claridges spa. 90 whole minutes? Dream. Come. True.

The Claridges spa is quite limited; around three treatment rooms with a gym, but the service and the decor are all very elegant. The changing rooms are teeny too, but are kept in line with the 1920-esque decor of the hotel and are filled with the essentials.

I filled in the consent form, changed into my big fluffy robe, and put on the pillowy soft slippers; I was ready for this massage treatment! Not long later, the therapist introduced herself and led me into the treatment room, which was cosy and dark, and equipped with a warm massage bed.

The Claridges Spa Massage

As someone who always goes for a deep tissue massage, I’ve forgotten just how good a Swedish massage is. The soft, gentle strokes left me feeling so relaxed, I ended up dozing off and had to be woken up by the therapist. All the aches and pains I went into that room with disappeared and I instantly felt better, mentally and physically.

Sadly, the 90 minutes were up and I was taken to the relaxation room, where I was given an option of teas and a quick nibble on the dried fruits and nuts.

The cost of the 90 minute Swedish massage (with a £10 tip) came to £180; perfect for a birthday/anniversary/post-baby gift. Given the price of the treatment, I would have liked the spa at Claridges to have the usual amenities – sauna, steam room, a proper relaxation room – hence you’re paying more for the name, but goodness, the massage was one of the best I’ve had.
