Peak Perfection

Experience the height of luxury at The Jumeirah Carlton Tower

Posted: 03.03.14

If there is a spa in heaven, it probably looks like The Peak Health Club & Spa. 
Located on the ninth floor of the luxurious Jumeirah Carlton Hotel in Knightsbridge, this is a day spa with a difference; one that was made with VIPs in mind. With views as high as the clouds from the gym and adjoining clubroom cafe, it gives you an insight into what relaxing in heaven must be like. But where to start with the pampering? Upon arrival guests are handed a comfy robe and slippers, at this point it’s best to turn off your mobile and take a few relaxing deep breaths…the journey to complete bliss is about to begin.

The Peak’s spa menu comprises an enticing range of treatments, that are much more interesting than the usual facial and massage lists that other spas offer. There are full day packages crammed with ‘me-time’ attention where you can indulge at your leisure, or you can sample a bespoke treatment (choose from prescriptive facials, firming body wraps, exfoliation and men's grooming options) that soothe away your stresses, before spending the rest of the time enjoying the club’s other facilities which include a gymnasium and fitness class programme. You can also book in for a well-being MOT or relax by the airy swimming pool followed by a lounge in the Jacuzzi, sauna and stream rooms.

Signature Treatments – Mohom, Deep Muscle Massage (60/90mins)

Starting with a cleansing foot ritual, the Mohom is a cross between a Thai massage and a deeply relaxing muscle treatment. It’s a full body massage performed with an intoxicating herbal poultice, with particular focus on your back. Muscles are stretched out and loosened up to stimulate blood circulation so it’s a great way to relieve any tensions you've build up.

At the beginning of the session the therapist checks in with you to ask what level of pressure you prefer, then all you have to do it lie back and let them work their magic. The session starts on the backs of each leg waking up your muscles with vigorous strokes before working up your back and on to your arms, before they are stretched out. Never underestimate the feeling of a good stretch - it can do wonders for your posture and general feeling of well-being. At the end of the session take your time coming back round to reality with a mug of warming herbal tea.

Lunch At Your Leisure
A trip to The Peak Health Club has to include a stop off in the cafe which has stunning views over South London. Tuck into healthy snacks and salads, washed down with one of The Peak’s delicious fresh juices.

The menu features flavours that will refresh and rejuvenate you pre or post treatment, including Heart Beet Detox (beetroot and lemon) Fat Burner and Immune Booster; or if you prefer you can have your own combination blended just as you like it.

With the same level of luxury and attention to detail as if you were visiting one Jumeirah's international five star hotels; a couple of hours at The Peak is enough to make you feel like you've been on a millionaire's minibreak; without breaking the bank. Of course there's always the option of following your spa session with a shopping spree around the neighbouring designer boutiques; now that really would be a heavenly way to spend a day off work.
