ESPA Life at the Corinthia Hotel in London has been voted the Best UK Hotel Spa by travel magazine Condé Nast Traveller – the second time that the spa has taken the prestigious title. Spread over four floors and covering 3,300 square metres in the heart of London, ESPA Life at Corinthia was the first location to offer the brand’s ESPA Life concept – an integrated wellness approach that incorporates complementary and alternative medicine into a luxury spa environment. Renaud Gregoire, general manager of Corinthia London says: “We are thrilled to receive the distinguished award as it comes from the readers of Condé Nast Traveller and ultimately those who visit our spa and hotel.”
Designed by GA International, the spa officially opened in 2011 and welcomes over 15,000 guests each year. The design of the spa is all curves, with a luxurious sense of space, energy flow, soothing colours and tactile finishes. The 9m stainless steel swimming pool is by Barr+Wray, heated to 36 degrees is completed with airbeds and a massage waterfall. This zone also features a cluster of marble loungers, a contemporary black marble fireplace feature and an ice fountain. The glass amphitheatre sauna was specially designed by German wellness expert KLAFS and was the first of its kind in the world.
