Spa Night at The Rosewood London

Wednesday 18 February 2015
Rosewood Hotel Spa (4)

My usual idea of after work activities consists of either eating or drinking. Dan, my boyfriend, often asks me what my hobbies are (he's very into having hobbies). I instantly reply back, blogging and eating and drinking. He questions the later two.

So in a bid to broaden my horizons, I popped down to Senses Spa in The Rosewood London's Hotel. Probably not the out of work activity Dan had in mind, but then I never did learn to listen well.

The Rosewood London is just the most glorious hotel in Holborn. Regal, elegant, yet everyone is super friendly there. I blogged about their restaurant- Holborn Dining Rooms- and bar- Scarfes- too as I do think this hotel is fabulous, and seeing as it is my 4th time visiting, I think you can tell its a big recommendation from me.

However frequent my visits, I had never been to their Spa before. Hidden in the depths of the lower ground floor, guarding the entrance are these thick heavy metal door, rather like a palace chamber I imagine.

Yet inside, is a calm, tranquil space. Light years away from the madness that is Holborn at rush hour.

After a few minutes to just sit and 'be' with a peppermint tea, it was time to enter the spa area.

Once you enter, you are led to the dressing area by a very peaceful woman who bows and does those gliding hand actions (I almost wanted to say Namasté, but I was scared she thought I was taking the mick).

I loved the little touches, including hairspray for use. They know what women want.

I had decided to go for a facial as I have to admit I am probably the worst at looking after my face. Bad Laura. 

So a little pre-facial selfie, and then it was time to change.

Outside waiting for me was my lovely beautician, who led me to one of the treatment rooms. I slipped off my robe and lay down on the oh so relaxing and heated bed.

Sense Spa use their own blend of oils and facial products, which you can also purchase there.

I'd never had a facial before, so I didn't know what to expect, but boy was it just so relaxing. The mixture of the warm towels, the long caressing strokes along my forehead, the feeling of the moisture just sinking in. I think I could get a bit addicted to facials.

My skin had that gorgeous tingly feeling afterwards that gave me a big smile all night long.

Time flew far too fast for my liking, but then there is no rush here, and you are encouraged to use their steam and sauna rooms, as well as the relaxation lounge.

Tea and lemon water free flow, but even better is you can order a few cheeky cocktails to be sent down. 

Cocktails, whist relaxing in a spa? Oh heaven.

Spying a free bed, I lay down and closed my eyes. But don't worry, I put the time to good use- I thought of things I could do for that hobby.
