The Lowdown
If you know Mondrian London, you’ll know it’s all about the interiors here – they’re quirky, unexpected and Tom Dixon-designed. Their agua Spa follows suit, offering something a little different than the usual pan pipes and mood lighting.

The Environment
First things first: this isn’t your usual spa. agua Spa has been designed as a ‘spa playground’, with the convivial, communal feel of Roman spa culture. It’s all about ‘70s, glam rock-inspired indulgence here: think chocolate fondue and Champagne whilst you relax around Tom Dixon’s copper teardrop sculpture (or if you’re on a health kick, opt for the raw menu instead), luminous pathways, and psychedelic visuals.

The Facilities
The interior might not be conventional, but the facilities here are still top notch. Pre-treatment (which take place in one of six rooms), we recommend a steam in their hammam (there’s a separate one for men and women) or a workout in the fitness centre – both of these are available with all treatments unless you’ve gone for an express option. The changing rooms and showers are equipped with everything you need – but don’t forget to try out some of their products at the testing station too.

The Treatments
We opted for agua Spa’s signature facial. think of it as facial massage with benefits: intensely relaxing, but our skin was glowing for days after. After your treatment, if you want, your therapist will actually tuck you under a duvet on one of the loungers with a cup of tea – we would have sat there all day if the sun wasn’t calling us outside.

The Price
£95 for their signature 50-minute facial.

Anything Else?
If you’re having a facial, remember to steam before as you won’t be able to after.
