The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel, Park Lane

The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel in Park Lane has designed special treatments just for men, including the Black Diamond facial which includes a black diamond dust facial cream used specifically to purify the skin. It turns out diamonds aren’t just for rings - the spa also offers back and foot massages using black diamond dust.

May Fair Spa at The May Fair Hotel
The May Fair Spa located inside the divine May Fair Hotel offers an unforgettable personalized spa experience, with body wraps tailored to fit your needs. Instead of going to the spa, the spa can come straight to you with masseuses who will do treatments right in your hotel room. Share a steamy spa experience with a couples massage or a Moroccan Steam Cleansing Ritual for Two - complete with a private steam chamber for you and your partner.
