The Connaught is one of London’s most famous traditional luxury hotels, so I just love that they have partnered with one of my favourite international brands, Aman, to bring an exceptional Spa experience to beautiful Mayfair.
At the Connaught, the only Aman Spa built outside of the world-renowned Aman Resorts, has stayed true to the core pillars of the Aman concept, reflecting the renewing traditions of China, Thailand, India and the Americas. But here in London, Aman has really taking into consideration what the busy Londoner, or someone exploring the city on a weekend away, would both need and desire, in order to boost their mental and physical wellbeing.
Aman can be trusted to provide the very best therapists, taking a holistic, all-rounded approach to wellness, with a menu of offerings that incorporates various treatments especially designed to enhance nutrition, movement, psychological health and body work. Choose from a grounding, purifying or nourishing formula: massage, body wraps, reflexology, osteopathy, acupuncture and face rituals are just a few of the most wonderful spa experiences to be enjoyed at The Connaught. What really makes the Aman Spa so special is the personalisation of each treatment to focus on the individual’s needs for the most effective outcome. Each treatment begins with a relaxing, mineral-rich foot ritual, and guests can enjoy complementary lunchtime meditation classes, as well as tranquil, leisurely soaks in the black granite swimming pool, or a relaxing session in the crystal steam room, which is infused with essential oils.
I particularly love the ‘Travellers Treatments’ to iron out those niggles from a long flight, particularly if you’ve been constantly on the move, crossing between time-zones, or are returning from a particularly high-stress work trip. A massage is also the perfect way to start off a new adventure, feeling relaxed and ready to enjoy whatever experience is waiting around the corner.
The Aman Spa at The Connaught offers a number of treatments to help combat jet-lag, so as to ensure you can make the most of your time in the city, feeling at your best, and most refreshed. From personal experience I can recommend the invigorating scrubs, hydrating masks and soothing aromatic massages.
The Connaught is a 5-star luxury hotel in the heart of London with elegant suites by designers Guy Oliver and the late David Collins, seamless butler service, Michelin-starred dining, a wonderful gin bar, and a fantastic location within easy walking distance from some of the finest dining and shopping experiences in the capital.

Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
