The Langham also brings the Chuan Spa brand's first location in Europe. Set inside a former bank, the spa's setting is as inimitable as its menu of signature and Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments. Wellness options also include the city's first salt sauna, an indoor pool housed in the original bank's vault and a fitness center outfitted with Technogym equipment and plasma TVs.
SERVICES & CLASSES
Drawing energy from Traditional Chinese Medicine to awaken body, mind and spirit, the Chuan Spa, London, is the first hotel spa in the city to incorporate these ancient principles into treatments and decor. Initially a bank, the spa has preserved some of the building’s original architecture, modeling a mosaic-tiled pool in the original bank vault, while incorporating a modern, Zen-like feel that appeals to sophisticated spa-goers of today. There are six treatment rooms, including a couple’s VIP suite, along with a steam room, sauna and salt sauna, which is also the first of its kind in London.
Customized holistic treatment plans are devoted to the five elements and include signature Chuan massage, hydrotherapy and body treatments, Babor and Thalgo facials and TCM rituals like cupping, moxibustion and acupuncture. Guests are encouraged to begin their spa experience with the Chuan Tri-Bathing Ritual, starting with a steam or sauna session followed by a cold shower and concluding with a soak in the vitality pool.
