With the nights drawing in and the run up to Christmas increasingly frantic, it's crucial to take some time out to relax, rejuvenate and escape the cold, even if it's just for an hour of escapism. As a more typical girlie girl I love all things grooming and jumped at the chance to try out the Blue Harbour Health Club and Spa at the Wyndham Grand in Imperial Wharf.
Opting for one of their signature massages, I was really impressed with the quality of the treatment and therapist's level of skill and care. A quality massage does not come along as often as you would think, even in the lovely leafy suburbs of SW6. However, this massage was on par with some of the best spas I have been fortunate enough to visit with my day job.
I have to admit though that I was a little disappointed with the 'spa' experience in the sense that I wasn't given a robe and sort of rushed through without being offered the opportunity to relax after the treatment and found myself back in the cold air before I had a moment to blink! As per the above picture there is a stylish serene relaxation area which I would have loved to enjoy.
For local residents membership for the health club is not only available but also very competitively priced. The Blue Harbour Health Club & Spa features a 17-metre indoor swimming pool with swan neck body jets, fitness suite, sauna and steam room, six treatment rooms, a relaxation suite and hair salon. Monthly membership starts from just £80per person (and no joining fees) making it South West London’s best kept secret for gym bunnies!
For those wanting to suss it out themselves there are two open days later this month on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd November, featuring free taster treatments and nutritional advice, prizes to win, free exercise classes and membership offers. To RSVP or for further information please call 0207 300 5011 or visit blueharbourspa.co.uk.
