The Sanctuary

Last weekend I treated myself to an aromatherapy massage at The Sanctuary Covent Garden, a famous day spa in the heart of London. It's such a serene space that makes you feel relaxed right when you walk in the door. As you can see from the photos above, it’s beautifully decorated with rich textures, spacious lounge areas and modern finishes. The spa is comprised of an atrium pool, exercise pool, heat & steam rooms and lounges. It even has a sleep retreat where you lie on a bed that has sound waves running through it to reduce muscle tension and relax your body. And it's got an infrared sauna where you sit against a padded infrared light panel that penetrates into your muscles to help release tension and back pain.

The treatment menu looks amazing with everything from massages and body wraps to facials and mani/pedis. And although I didn’t try it this time around, I’ve heard the restaurant is quite tasty with seasonally inspired dishes like pumpkin & ricotta tortelloni and a spicy sweet corn chowder. The best part is that everyone dines in their robes! Can't wait to go back for a little more R&R...
