Every year on Valentine’s Day, I approach my post box knowing there will be a card waiting for me. The fact that it’s usually from my mother is a minute detail.
These days, Valentine’s Day is a typically quiet affair. There’s been the odd dinner out, or a girl’s night at an anti-Valentine’s party. With many great spas in London, I decided to check out couples massage London deals on offer. Whatever you decide to do, turn a normal day into a treat day.
Nb – All the spas/hotels on the list offer packages beyond Valentine’s Day.
Couples massage London
Thai Square Spa
Thai Square Spa is about a 3-minute walk from Trafalgar Square. The spa changed venue from its Covent Garden location 2 years ago to its current larger building. Its manager, Sara, and the rest of the team are nothing but helpful and ready to make your visit a memorable one.
The establishment’s exactly what you’d expect from a spa: calming environment, dim lighting and mood music softy playing in the background. It may sound obvious, but don’t forget to bring your swimwear!
The Sen Space is where you can unwind and let off steam, and sweat, in the steam and sauna room. The perfect sized Jacuzzi instantly erases the stresses of the day. The spa also has its own beauty products called the iMantara range. Certain products are currently on sale and are available in store and online.
Luxury spa experience in London’s West End
I tried the Ritual Massage – a personalised treatment using oils blended from flower and fruit extracts. Combining the oils with oriental massage techniques, my therapist, Paolo, did a first-class job of making me feel relaxed.
Couples packages range from 2.5 hours to the ultimate experience of 5 hours. At the time of writing, the spa has a special offer called the ‘Food of Love Spa Package’. This deal combines treatments with dinner at the nearby Thai Square restaurant.
Ultimately, Thai Square Spa offers a luxury experience for couples looking for a spot of pampering in London’s West End.
Couples massage London – London COMO Metropolitan
The ‘Love from COMO Shambhala couples massage’ offers 75 minutes of deep relaxation. Shambhala is a Sanskrit term meaning a place of peace/tranquility/happiness, so you know this will be good. To ramp up the romantic feel, the massage is carried out by candlelight. Using a range of signature blended oils, you’ll leave the spa with a calm mind and possibly a numb body.
In case you really don’t want to leave, the hotel’s also offering suites complete with bed, breakfast and a bottle of Tattinger champagne. The price also includes use of the hotel’s facilities, such as the gym. Packages start from £400. While in town, be smart and beat the lines when seeing the best London attractions by booking a popular tour.
But wait, there’s more
If cocktail-making is your thing, the hotel’s also hosting a cocktail masterclass for 2 at the iconic Met Bar. Try your skills at creating the intriguing sounding ‘Lady Killer’. Perhaps a ‘Between the sheets’ cocktail will be better suited to the mood of the evening. The masterclass starts from £84 per couple, and includes delicious canapés, home-made truffles and macarons.
If you get hungry for more than romance, the Ametsa with Arzak Instruction at sister hotel COMO The Halkin is an ideal choice. The restaurant serves a unique Basque inspired afternoon tea, as well as a Michelin-star tasting menu with wine pairing for dinner.
Couples massage London – Spa Verta, Crowne Plaza London
Spa Verta is located far from the busy streets of central London in the Crown Plaza hotel in Battersea. Battersea is in south-west London and not too far from the famous Battersea Power Station.
Offering a local luxury experience, Spa Verta is the place for couples/friends to get a bit of TLC. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating to your every need.
Love to spa
The ‘Love to spa Valentines package’ is specially for those wanting to spend the day relaxing together. The package includes full access to the spa and gym facilities, plus a 55-minute couples full body massage. What’s more, the deal also includes a 2-course Valentines sharing plate* and cocktail in the hotel’s Pad Restaurant & Bar.
While there, be sure to check out the range of spa beauty products on offer from high-end brand ESPA. The therapists use the products in the spa, meaning you can take home a little piece of Spa Verta with you.
* A vegetarian option is also available
Top tip: Go on a weekday. The spa is less busy, so the hydropool will be all yours.
The final 2 – couples massage London
St Pancras Spa, St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London
St Pancras Spa is situated in the historic St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London next to St Pancras Station. First opened in 1876, renovation work began on the hotel in 2005 before its grand re-opening in 2011.
If you enjoy Gothic Revival architectural design, you’ll love St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London. The renovation restored many of the hotel’s original features, such as the high-Victorian Gothic Grand Staircase from 1901.
Pampering in a historical setting
The spa highlights features of the hotel’s Victorian past with its great brick archways and floor-to-ceiling windows. It’s located in the original underground steam kitchens.
St Pancras Spa is luxury personified. The spa has 6 rooms in total, which includes a couple’s suite with king-sized heated beds and a butler service for every guest! Its range of spa packages will turn Valentine’s Day, and any other day, into something special.
The ‘Love and you’ package offers 90 minutes of pampering for you and your loved one. A 60-minute rose facial followed by a 30-minute aromatic back massage will have you feeling brand new.
Follow your luxury spa experience with a mouth-watering afternoon tea. The ‘Lover’s Afternoon Tea’ features raspberry rosewater heart macarons and a glass of Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne.
Couples massage London – Ajala Spa, Grange Hotel
Ajala Spa has a special Valentine’s Spa Package for couples. The deal includes a 25-minute Fleur de Vigne Candlelit Massage and half-day use of the spa’s facilities. Fleur de Vigne is a massage candle that melts into a warm oil, delicately scented with grape blossom.
If that’s not enough, the offer also includes strawberries and cream, chocolates and a glass of Prosecco.
