NOW OPEN: UK’s Largest Spa, ESPA Life at Corinthia, London
ESPA Life at Corinthia the latest spa by industry leader Sue Harmsworth MBE, opened July 2011 as the largest spa in the UK. Measuring over 37,000 square feet and covering four levels, the spa is now ESPA’s worldwide flagship. It is also the first location to offer the brand’s new ESPA Life concept, an integrated wellness approach that incorporates complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into a luxury spa environment. Not only is it the first of its kind for ESPA, but it is the first city-center luxury spa in the world to offer CAM programs to its guests.
Led by well-known Australian naturopath, nutritionist, homeopath, and medical herbalist Max Tomlinson, ESPA Life’s wellness programs incorporate CAM for spa guests seeking to optimize their health – these CAM offerings include practices such as acupuncture, physical therapy, nutritional analysis, and more. Personal trainer Stephen Price and his team will be heading up the fitness programs at ESPA Life, and UK hairstylist to the stars Daniel Galvin will have an in-house hair salon. With these professionals in place, as well as a nail studio carrying Shellac polish by Creative Nail Design and IPL by Palomar, Lycon Wax hair removal services, and ESPA’s acclaimed collection of natural skin and body treatments and therapies, ESPA Life is also the ultimate destination for all beauty and grooming needs. The spa offers a two-tiered membership program that allows for usage of ESPA Life facilities along with special discounts and services; however, ESPA Life elements can also be enjoyed on an a la carte basis.
ESPA Life features extensive spa offerings for both men and women, including new age-defying facials and a ‘Rush Hour Beauty’ menu with treatments created for maximum results within a short period of time. The expansive spa facilities, open to all hotel guests as well as members of ESPA Life, feature an entire floor of thermal options including an impressive 30-foot indoor silver steel swimming pool, an amphitheatre sauna, and exquisite black mosaic steam rooms. There are 15 treatment “pods”, one private spa suite for larger spa parties, and a spa lounge serving nutritional yet delicious cuisine.
“Health, energy and wellbeing have been a passion of mine for most of my life and career,
says Sue Harmsworth MBE, CEO & Founder of ESPA International. “ESPA Life brings together a concept that has evolved over the past thirty years as the spa and medical worlds have grown closer together, culminating in the creation of this new and innovative spa concept. ESPA Life at Corinthia will be the first city center spa to offer this integrative approach.”
