BEAUTY & THE BRUNCH AT ONE ALDWYCH

Saturday mornings don’t come much better than this

One Aldwych hotel, WC2B 4BZ | 020 7300 1000 | onealdwych.com

Location

Possibly one of our favourite London hotels for its swanky but fresh appeal, One Aldwych embodies effortless luxury to expert effect. It is now also the unofficial LFW haunt – situated within crawling distance of Somerset House.

Vibe

UJ visited to indulge in Beauty & the Brunch – a genius concept combining two things we love. From the minute we arrived at the basement spa and spied the off-the-scale indoor pool, the weight of the city slipped from our shoulders.

Treatments

This white-walled spa area has three treatment rooms offering a menu by Natura Bisse. As part of Beauty & the Brunch, we had Express Facials – which were bite-size but more than delivered. Our favourite bit was half an hour lazing by the über-designy pool, as if on holiday, and not really in the heart of Holborn’s bustle.

Brunch

One Aldwych’s Indigo restaurant offers brunch how we like it; breakfast and lunch together. Think starter of Eggs Benedict, followed by main of Steak Frites, washed down with limitless Prosecco and topped with sticky toffee pudding. This feast isn’t for the faint hearted.

Upshot

There is no doubt that this is THE ideal way to while away a rainy Saturday morning in London – being pampered before eating your heart out is frankly, joyous. Take friends or go on your own – this is total indulgence at its best.
