AGUA Bathhouse & Spa | Mondrian Hotel

27 October 2015

My birthday weekend celebrations started on Friday afternoon where I was treated to a custom massage at the AGUA Bathhouse & Spa, Mondrian Hotel (part of the Morgan's group). The hotel is located at Sea Containers just by the River Thames. It is modern and clean and the Spa is located below ground to make you feel as if you are underwater!

I arrived at the hotel to discover that the interior had been designed by Tom Dixon and knew that I would fall in love with the decor. Who doesn't love a bit of Tom Dixon?!

Everything from the marble floors, to the copper trays and not forgetting the beautiful copper tear drop in the middle of the spa lounge was so beautiful to look at. After filling out a short form in the gorgeous reception area I was taken to the steam rooms/changing area. The room was all white with marble details, lockers and massive rain showers stocked with Malin + Goetz products!

 I had never had a Swedish massage before so I wasn't sure what to expect. A lot of it involved long gliding strokes to help circulation and to relieve any stress carried in the muscles. I find it quite hard to switch off and spent a lot of the time thinking but eventually felt relaxed and sleepy towards the end. After 50 minutes (that felt like 5) I was told that the massage was over and to get ready in my own time.

I then went back to the changing room and spent a few minutes in the steam room followed by a refreshing shower. We left the spa in our gym clothes feeling so light and relaxed. It was such a lovely personalised experience and I would definitely return to try out their other spa treatments!
