Four Seasons Seychelles - The Spa Man

Four Seasons Seychelles

Four Seasons Seychelles is a picture of paradise personified. Occupying one of the most beautiful beaches in the Seychelles, the villas (most with private pools) are discreetly built into the surrounding hillside and seamlessly blend into the trees offering an air of exclusivity and privacy for guests. From one room villas to four bedroom residences, the villas are designed with dark wood and modern fixtures and make the most of the views. A highlight is the outdoor shower, terrace and decking area. The beach is where the main action happens with sun loungers set amongst the palms along the shore. There’s guided snorkelling with Wise Oceans marine conservation which has a partnership with the resort and is working to restore the reef. Sipping cocktails on the beach, a spot of lunch by the pool or lazy walks along the shore, it’s a heavenly location and most definitely Instagram ready. There’s a large gym on site, just below the lobby and breakfast is served at Zen which also doubles as a great evening restaurant. There’s a …

Four Seasons Park Lane - Mother's Day Spa - The Spa Man

Review: The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel London

THE SPA: In a commanding position on the top floor of the Four Seasons Hotel at Park Lane, the spa is light airy and inviting. The staff were superb and the views even better. Making the most of its superior location, the views extend across the London skyline from the reception area, all treatment rooms and the sky lounge cafe. Taking in everything from Hyde Park to the key sights of Big Ben, The Shard, Green Park and the London Eye, these views alone give the spa the wow factor. But scratch the surface and it’s more than just the skyline that impresses. Interesting brands and well-designed treatment are sure to please. The reception space, white walls segue with the sky views and are highlighted with accent notes of art around the walls giving a touch of warmth. The compact hydro and heat facilities are enough to ensure you are relaxed pre and post treatment. The facilities are separate for men and women and lead onto a treatment waiting area which is cosy with neutral …

Dominate your day at Four Seasons Canary Wharf

THE HOTEL: A definite cut above the average corporate hotel, Four Seasons Canary Wharf is a welcome retreat from the grey facades and steely austere front of London’s new city hub. On a grey, wet day, the warm reception from the staff was just what the doctor ordered. The big draw at this hotel is its prime river front location. Bag a room with a river view and you could sit and gaze at the ever changing London skyline all day. When you tire of that make use of the guest passes for Virgin Active – just next door. It modern health club with a huge pool that looks out across the river is spot on. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfy (and big) and the bathroom has a massive bath. Definitely make some time for a soak. DOMINATE YOUR DAY: Visiting the hotel to experience the new Dominate your Day Energy Programme, I didn’t get to have the renowned breakfast, feasting instead on porridge made with almond milk, topped with blueberries and chia …

Postcard from Paris

Paris – the city of light (and love). Words and pictures rarely do it justice. It’s spas are renowned as some of the finest in the world and I’ve been visiting two of the very best on a short Spring break to the French capital. George V – part of the Four Seasons group exudes Parisian charm. Widely regarded as the finest, most luxurious hotel spa in Paris, its an escape; a retreat in the heart of the hustle and bustle – just off the Champs-Elysées. Fabulous body and face treatments, water facilities and a subtle elegance will both calm and relax you. And then to completely contrast this, my second night was spent at the recently modernised Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris. Exuding style, art and designed by Phillipe Starck, it’s a hotel like no other. And then there’s the spa. The first spa concept by Clarins – The Spa My Blend by Clarins is customised, bespoke and set in a light, airy and luxurious spa in the hotel’s basement – but you would …
