Thai Square Spa Covent Garden

Grooming, Uncategorized

Like most working dads the end of the year is the finish line you’ve been aiming for since the kids went back to school. It offers the chance to indulge in a well earned feeding, watering and sleep with plenty of help on hand to keep the rest of the family occupied.
For those who look to be faltering in the final straight though, I have the perfect remedy. The Thai Square Spa in Covent Garden. Within its four wall holds the key to rejuvenation this winter.

An Oasis In the West End

Housed on Sheldon Street off of Covent Garden’s famous 7 Dials, the Thai Square Spa is a revolution in elegance, opulence and tranquility carved out in mahogany and gold splendour. It’s hard to believe this used to be an Italian restaurant! A little hint, if your visiting in non-daylight winter hours enter via the Spa’s rear exit on Ealham Street. It’s like entering a mountain Sanctuary in Chang Mai!

Warm and Inviting

Upon entry I was warmly greeted by the receptionist shortly followed by Spa Manager, Sarai, who showed me several of the rooms including the group bookings suite and treatment room. Not before time Bea, my masseuse, arrived to take me downstairs.

The treatment room, complete with copper slipper bath is dark and warm and I immediately start to relax. Bea begins to bathe my feet before I hop up on to the couch. I opted for a traditional Thai Massage to the neck, back and shoulders. The massage works on heating the body temperature and muscles using hot oils massaged into pre-exfoliated skin. Once warmed up, multiple pressure points are applied and manipulated to relieve tension. Incredible

All in all the Spa is first class. The staff are proud of this fact and it shows in the attentiveness, hospitality and friendliness of everyone I met. Bea is an excellent masseuse but I think that goes without saying of all staff at the Spa as all have trained at the prestigious Watpo (Temple of Reclining Medicine) Thai Traditional Massage School in Bangkok.

In the run up to the holiday season the Spa have a number of award winning packages to suit all:
Super stress relieving Package £69 (was £110) – a package for men including a 30 minute Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage with a 30 minute head massage.

They also have a truly indulgent Siamese Traditional Stress Relieve treatment priced at just £99 which includes a 90 minute Thai Massage and a 30 minute oriental foot or head massage.

I cannot recommend this Spa highly enough. It exceeded my expectations and lifted my spirits, the only thing it didn’t do was tuck me into bed!
