A spa day is always an absolute must and the Rembrandt delivered it beautifully!
A friend of mine and I had planned a little girly day for a while, to simply catch up and relax in a pool, a jacuzzi and have a massage, the Rembrandt in South Kensington was just the answer to our prayers.
A small spa that rests quietly in the basement of the hotel, it features a beautiful pool with columns and a fountain in the middle, a relaxation area, open gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. We got a twenty minute treatment, which was a massage and so completely relaxing. I really carry a lot of tension in my shoulders and need to very often have some help to relax them so this was PERFECT!
The beauty is that spas are slowly but surely becoming more accessible. We booked our afternoon with spabreaks.com and it cost us each £45, with free teas and coffees, treatment and full use of the spa for the whole day. It was great. Prices outside of London are even better and cheaper so it is definitely do-able to treat yourself to a relaxing afternoon once in a while.
So that is my little discovery for this week, let me know what you guys are getting up to.
Happy reading, writing and travelling!
