Massage, meditation, yoga, stress management and time with friends eating nothing but the finest in exotic cuisine - sounds too good to be true, right? No, this isn't a cheesy ad for a cruise ship company. This is Hire Space's guide to a more relaxed London. Escapism has never been so attainable. Dust off the Enya CDs as James Roche brings you three chill out venues in London.
Chelsea Day Spa
Did your last fake tanning experience leave you looking like an Oompah Loompah? When you fill in the "nationality" category in questionnaires, do you tick "carrot"? Odds are that you aren't doing it right. At Chelsea Day Spa, they believe that a good spray tan shouldn't look fake at all and the whole experience should be nothing but relaxing. Why let London's temperamental weather get in the way of your glorious glow? At just £33 for a Vita Liberata Spray Tan, now is the time to cash in.
While a spray tan may not be at the top of your list, finding time to relax and enjoy the deluxe pampering packages available at Chelsea Day Spa most certainly should. With services such as waxing and massage therapy, nail therapy, body treatments and facials, the staff go above and beyond to ensure that you are nothing but "chilled out."
The Chelsea Day Spa has proven a popular location for birthdays, hen parties and film shoots and with the facilities available and services provided, it's not hard to see why. The whole venue is available for hire and is even open on Sundays from 10am-6pm!
There's nothing much more relaxing than kicking back with friends on some comfy pillows, chatting over a glass or two of wine and tucking into some fine food. It's even better when you don't have to do the cooking. At Kenza Restaurant and Lounge, you'll be treated to the finest in Arabian hospitality in a relaxed setting.
Located to one side of the main restaurant, Kenza Alcove is a delightfully intimate private dining space to enjoy a meal and to entertain friends and colleagues.
Soak up the terrific atmosphere over a spiced mezze or dine in true style with one of Kenza's renowned three-course meals. Kenza Restaurant and Lounge provides a number of fantastic spaces for hire and countless options to ensure a highly personalised affair. For a relaxing, unforgettable experience though, look no further than Kenza Alcove.
Escaping the madness of a packed London city centre has never been easier, thanks to StillPoint relaxation centre.
Located just minutes from Liverpool Street station, StillPoint offers "an oasis of calm in the beating heart of the City of London." If you're not suitably relaxed after reading that motto, then you sure will be after sampling one of their top-class bodywork and massage therapies.
You can hire out some, lots or all of it, and with indoor bumper cars and a secret karaoke room on offer, it is pretty much impossible to get bored. Whether you're entertaining friends, celebrating a birthday or are looking for a unique, corporate venue, Namco Funscape has a space to satisfy your every need.
Providing treatment rooms and workshop space for hire, StillPoint is definitely doing its bit to create a more relaxed London and definitely deserves its spot amongst London's to chill out venues!
