Sanook Spa Facial Review – What We Thought

If you’re anything like me you wince every time you’re slapped in the face by a blast of dirty underground air. Throw in the Autumn chill and dry indoor heating and the idea of a facial was most welcome. And what better time than National Chocolate Week when Sanook Spa were offering a special Chocolate Facial. The spa is in the basement of the 5 star Courthouse Hotel, just down from Liberty. Much smaller than I expected, it was very well equipped and I’d imagine that during the day it would be very peaceful. I arrived at 6pm, flustered and straight from […]

Boulestin review – what we thought

Located in the affluent area of St James’s, the recently opened Boulestin has already done itself a service by choosing such an enviable home to set up shop. The French restaurant has several other reasons to count itself smug including a hidden courtyard, large private dining space and high quality cuisine served morning till evening.

The sauce sounds more like it belongs in the dessert section but is actually well placed in the savoury […]
