The May Fair Spa is the ultimate urban pamper destination. While Bliss spa may offer Cosmos and episodes of Sex and the City looped on repeat, the May Fair Spa promises to soothe aching limbs, frazzled nerves and stressed-out complexions.
Located in the basement of the five-star May Fair Hotel, the spa has a minimal Far East aesthetic with water features, slate, scented candles and stone Buddha statues. Well-equipped with a sauna, steam room and a relaxation room with warm stone-heated beds, the spa advises you to arrive an hour before your treatment so that you can make the most of your pamper time. Hours can be lost in the relaxation area: Swaddle yourself in fluffy robes as therapists bring endless glasses of herbal tea while you nibble on fruit, nuts and catch up on the latest editions of glossy mags.
Standout treatments include their signature massage, promising to iron out any stress-induced kinks, and a dermabrasion and oxygen facial that will clear yucky blockages and city grime and leave you ready for your close-up.
