The Lanesborough Club & Spa Launches in Knightsbridge

The luxurious new Club & Spa at The Lanesborough is now open, pairing majestic interiors with a sophisticated menu of spa treatments and fitness facilities, plus a partnership with Bodyism

The Lanesborough is the Grand Dame of Hyde Park Corner, renowned for its regency-inspired décor and second-to-none service, underlined by British warmth and character. The five-star hotel underwent a multi-million pound, top-to-toe refurbishment in 2015, re-emerging as part of the prestigious Oetker Collection of luxury hotels. Since its relaunch, it has continued to raise the bar in gastronomy and design, with a host of innovative new menus and events, as well as scooping a Michelin star in 2016.  

The majestic new Club & Spa is, as expected, an extension of the hotel’s graceful splendour. Designed by London-based interior practice, 1508, it unfolds in a luxurious palette of glossy wood, scintillating marble and sumptuous silk wallpaper, flourished with gleaming gold fixtures and baroque touches. Sleek interiors reflect the hotel’s resplendent décor, while seamlessly incorporating state-of-the-art facilities. 

The generous 18,000 sq ft space is home to an expansive gym, scintillating hydrotherapy pool, sauna and suite of thermal treatment rooms, exclusively available to members and hotel guests only. The spa has collaborated with London’s resident experts on a comprehensive menu of fitness and wellbeing treatments including revered facialist Anastasia Achilleos, lauded for her ‘magic touch’ and bespoke remedies.  

Also on the menu are luxury brands including British organic line, ILA and Swiss skincare giant, La Praire, in addition to signature treatments including the indulgent Lanesborough Lather, which luxuriously hydrates and buffs the body. The Lanesborough has also partnered with wellbeing specialist Bodyism, the self-acclaimed 'Clean and Lean' expert that counts David Beckham, Pippa Middleton and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as devotees. 

There a spa lounge with dedicated spa butlers on hand to cater to your every whim, from fresh towels to compliments, as well as a plush private restaurant. Tuck into nutriontal, all-day menu, developed by the hotel’s Michelin-starred chefs with a focus on fresh, fine cuisine. Wellbeing has never looked so wonderful.
