Writing a post about a luxury spa whilst sitting at my desk feeling cold and miserable is absolute torture. I am dreaming of my wonderfully luxuriating three day break to the Lefay Resort & Spa in Italy. I want to be wrapped up in their care and not exhausted by […]

So Day Two of my “Lefay Spa Discovery” programme consisted of some moxibustion (no, I didn’t know either, but it sounded a little ominous), a “personalised energy body massage” and an energy facial massage. All of which (apart from the Moxibustion) made me fall asleep and wake myself up snoring. […]

THANK YOU to The Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden for inviting me to spend the day there with some friends. What an amazingly luxurious day we had. So lovely to be right in the heart of busy London and yet reclining on sun loungers or swimming in their famous pool or having a treatment. It’s like a rabbit warren when you get in there – all under the streets of London are rooms filled with hidden treasures.
Here are my two friends on arrival – literally round the corner from Covent Garden tube or a five minute walk from Leicester Square:-
The spa first opened its doors in 1977 and was created by a US Choreographer as a gift of love to his ballerina wife and it soon became a magical retreat for the dancers of the Royal Ballet to come and relax after training. I think I first went there in the 80’s and again in the 90’s and not much has changed.

It’s most definitely something you should do for a day with girlfriends – so relaxing and rejuvenating. For the last 35 years they have continued offering their facilities to women whilst allowing them to enjoy precious time together with friends and family. Sanctuary Spa is a fun place for enjoyment, whether you’re indulging in a glass of bubbly while lounging by the serene Koi Carp pools, applying a Moroccan mud mask or feeling aches and pains dissolve under the skilled fingers of their therapists.

We’ve all arrived safely after a very easy flight and a lovely meal last night. The Grand Floridian Hotel is just lovely. All colonial looking and white. Huge. This morning we had our “character breakfast” at the all you can eat and more restaurant. There was the usual cooked breakfast, […]
