Our girl Hannah Tan-Gillies ventured into glitzy Sloane Street to sample the newly-introduced Seed to Skin Treatments at the Carlton Jumeirah’s Peak Fitness Club & Spa.
Towering high above Sloane Street’s swanky luxury shops is the Carlton Tower Jumeirah. The hotel delivers Jumeirah Group’s famed Arabian hospitality and is home to Peak Fitness Club & Spa, which houses London’s largest, natural light-filled indoor hotel swimming pool.
It is also home to a state of the art gym and restaurant which offers breath-taking panoramic views of Knightsbridge and Chelsea below.
Located on the hotel’s 2nd and 9th floors, The Peak Fitness Club and Spa offers a selection of treatments and therapies designed to relax, awaken and brighten, from revitalising massages to deep cleansing facial and herbal remedies.
Its partnership with Seed to Skin Tuscany marks the first UK hotel partnership for wellbeing company and treats hotel guests to an array of relaxing new services at its Peak Fitness Club & Spa. This includes a signature ‘Candle Massage’ which we had the pleasure of experiencing.
To say that ‘The Peak’ takes your breath away is an absolute understatement. From the moment you set foot in the light-filled pool area, you are at once filled with a sense of calm. Balinese style sun loungers, separated by billowing cloth dividers, make you feel like you are in sunnier locales and offer a great spot to relax and unwind.
After an appropriate time lounging poolside, our therapist led us to one of the treatment rooms for our Candle Wax massage. A quick consultation is followed by a blissful treatment in which a massage candle, rich in skin conditioning ingredients, is delicately poured onto the skin and massaged with slow sweeping movements. Under your therapist’s expert fingers, all your worries will wash away and you will feel like a new human being after, refreshed, reborn and ready to take on another hectic week.
The Peak Fitness Club & Spa sets itself apart not just by the incredible treatments on offer and the breath-taking surrounds of the indoor pool, but also by the expert knowledge and hospitality of its staff, which is a stalwart of any Jumeirah property. We shall soon be returning for more.
