The Six Senses Spa group are critically acclaimed spas situated in the most idyllic places around the world – Thailand, Vietnam, Fiji and Maldives are just a handful of the prime positions where these resorts have taken home. Now in London, Six Senses has even managed to make Canary Wharf a peaceful sanctuary.
Despite the slightly daunting and serious atmosphere circulating around London’s busiest centre, Six Senses seems to have chosen well, with bankers galore finding their path to treatment heaven, keen to bring some om and namaste back into their lives.
The spa was launched in February and having opened post-crunch it couldn’t be more popular with bankers in the area. With impeccable service and a space of 7,000 square feet, there’s nothing the spa is lacking. For those that are familiar with the spas across the world, there are their signature treatments available as well as holistic lifestyle guidance. Also available are massages, body treatments, foot and hand treatments as well as facials, with a separate open room for manicures and pedicures.
I tried one of the body treatments which manages to stay within the one hour lunch break and at 50 minutes still includes firming, toning as well as eliminating toxins from your body. To begin with, the internationally trained therapist talks to you about which areas you would like her to concentrate on before she begins her commendable work. If you don’t have time for a treatment there are also steam cabins, saunas and a hydrotherapy pool to shake off daily tensions, perfect to head to in your lunch break and sure to leave you suspiciously calm when returning to the office.
For those not quite so local, it might seem too long a haul but unlike so many spas the Six Senses group offer specially tailored signature “journeys” through the spa which have been the reason behind their success, making it definitely worth the trip.
Exclusive spa memberships are available.
