De-Stress Massage at B/Attitude Spa
The name B/Attitude evokes images of an uber-modern spa, complete with bright lights and contemporary music. Surprisingly, it’s the opposite. The moment the lift doors opened on the fourth floor of Grosvenor House, we were transported into what looked like an oriental temple. Think dragon emblazoned carpets, Chinese symbols and Samurai statues. It’s clear that the spa’s trendy neighbours, Buddha Bar, have influenced the place.
Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by the spa reception staff and shown around. There are five hammam pools in the mixed relaxation area, which are all set at different temperatures and surrounded by heated loungers. There is also a private relaxation area for ladies, complete with a Jacuzzi and steam room. With some time to kill before our treatment, we made the most of the facilities, which come highly recommended. We soaked our muscles in the hammam before putting our feet up with a green tea – bliss.
Once in the opulent treatment room our masseuse cleansed our feet before beginning. A warm, thick oil was used to massage the muscles in our neck, shoulders and back. The back massage was relaxing, but the highlight of the treatment was the foot massage, which sent us to sleep. Once the treatment was finished, we felt a little sleepy from our power nap, but extremely calm and de-stressed.
The spa made for the perfect escape for a few hours. Amidst the oriental magnificence it’s easy to forget your still within the concrete city.
