“5* Luxury for ladies that do lunch...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2011

After a short walk from Fulham Broadway tube down into Kings we entered Chelsea Harbour. Once we had stopped admiring all the yachts in the harbour and eventually walked through the door at the Blue Harbour Spa we were greeted with a choice of fresh tea/coffees and iced water. After completing our treatment form details and ordering lunch with a glass of wine we were issued our locker keys and access card for the doors within the spa.

On the ground floor is a state of the art gym for those who want to partake!

Onto the 1st floor and from the minute we walked into the changing area we had arrived – white robes, slippers and an endless supply of thick soft white towels. Locker room is spacious and well equipped from individual q-tips and cotton pads in bags to a set of scales if you dare…

Through to the wet area you notice the smell of oils emanating from the steam room and there is a large and very hot sauna. Using the steam takes a bit of getting used to as the oils are very strong and will cause your eyes/nose to feel cold surprisingly not unlike using a vapour rub on your chest. Both the sauna and steam are excellent especially the sauna for stretching out and doing a bit of Bikram Yoga. There are four spacious private showers with shower gel and shampoo (no conditioner) and two toilets with own hand basins.

Through the door to your right you then descend a few stairs to the pool area. Plenty of sun loungers for relaxing along with ice water and reading material. The pool is a lovely temperature and depth for swimming or just relaxing. The Swan neck jets are great – be warned the force of the jets is very strong and takes some getting used if you have not used before. The pool area is at lower ground level but has been built with one side looking out to the harbour courtyard so plenty of natural light.

As ladies that do lunch we had a the salad, salmon and cream cheese bagel and Chicken Club Sandwich all washed down with a glass of wine in the main area overlooking the harbour which was lovely.

On the second floor are the treatment rooms and the ultimate relaxation room complete with camomile tea. Plenty of relaxing seats with footstools and relaxing loungers with the softest light waffle blanket/towel for the ultimate relax either before or after your treatment - in our case both…

I had the full body aromatherapy massage and my friends had the full body de-stress and the full body massage – all exceptionally good.

We managed to spend over 7 hours relaxing and being pampered and will certainly go back again.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted to hear that we met your expectations. We are pleased to offer conditioner to members and guests; although it is not available in the shower itself, you can request it upon arrival from our reception team. I will make sure that the reception team let guests know that this is available when they arrive. Thank you again for taking the time to review our Spa and we are looking forward to welcoming you back!
