The award winning Amida spas offer a few options for Londoners with residence in Notting Hill, Chelsea and some greater London destinations such as Hampton. Everyone loves a spa day, especially at this time of year when some cosy indoor pampering beats the thought of venturing into the increasing chill.
Amida has a few spa packages on offer, I tried the Day Spa Experience for Two at the Hampton branch. For £140 you enjoy one of the following treatments:
•Aromatherapy Associates Intensive Back & Neck Muscle Release
•Aromatherapy Associates Express Essential Rose Facial
As well as one of the above, which lasts 25 minutes you can also use all spa facilities for the day and enjoy a light lunch.
The Hampton spa facilities include a steam room, large pool and pressure fountains as well as a hot tub to relax and wash away the stresses of the 9 to 5.
Our break to the Cafe Bar to enjoy our whole meal flatbreads was a real highlight. Although one wouldnt necessarily go to a spa day for a tasty meal it certainly helps! It was really busy, but a quiet room offered a more peaceful place to indulge and chat. The flatbread with spicy cheese Chicken, pesto and onion was just enough and delicious.
I opted for the mini facial treatment which was also my first introduction to Elemis products. Even though a short treatment the quality was great. There’s lot of product applied so you get your money’s worth and skin feels refreshed and soothed afterwards. If you want lasting effects the facialist went through all the products post treatment. This consultation of sorts was a great opportunity to learn a little more about my skin type its needs and some general guidance and insight.
Post treatment the relaxation room offers all the serene and calm you’d expect along with glossy magazines! So not only can you relax but also plan your next escape or retail therapy purchase!
Spa days and treatments are not cheap but this offers good return on investment. You can spend the day at leisure in the pool and sauna, catch up over a long and yummy lunch and even enjoy a quality treatment. I would recommend for ladies looking for a day of pampering and calm.
