What's on offer?

The Jumeirah Carlton Tower hotel is in the heart of fashionable Knightsbridge, at the centre of the capital's most exclusive shopping area. The entrance is on Cadogan Place, and you gain access to the spa either through the hotel lobby or via a dedicated lift on the outside of the building. The health club and spa occupy two floors, and the lift serves only these floors. You'll find the pool and heat facilities on the second floor, and the spa reception, treatment rooms, café and gym on the ninth.

The pool and wet facilities have their own bright reception area. The space is airy with lots of natural light streaming in through the glass roof above the pool. There are comfy sofas with a TV, palms and greenery; unusual wire-frame sculptures line the walls.

The 20-metre indoor stainless steel swimming pool is heated to a good temperature. While I swam leisurely lengths, I actually had the entire pool to myself although there were a couple of people lounging around the side. The large Jacuzzi is also stainless steel and is a lovely temperature; each of the powerful jets has been strategically positioned to achieve the ultimate in hydrotherapy massage.

There are two sets of changing rooms; the spa ones are on the ninth floor near the treatment rooms. These are spacious, with banks of wooden lockers, a row of clean well-stocked showers, and plenty of soft white towels. The vanity stations have well lit mirrors, good hair-driers, cotton-wool pads and an assortment of Molton Brown and REN lotions and beauty products. Lockers contain super-soft robes and towels, and spa slippers that actually fit.

The second, smaller changing rooms on the second floor are through a set of glass doors poolside and used primarily by pool users. These are also well equipped, well lit and stocked with REN products. Through another set of glass doors in the female-only area, are more showers and the heat facilities. The steam room is spacious and infused with eucalyptus oil (which I enjoyed so much, I made two separate visits). The Finnish-style sauna is also well heated.

The fully equipped gymnasium is air conditioned; the glass atrium and the floor-to-ceiling windows give you oodles of natural light as well as stunning views over London. The gym is fitted with Technogym cardiovascular and resistance machines as well as TRX suspension fitness training equipment. The glass-domed aerobics studio offers up to 40 classes per week including yoga to Zumba, body conditioning and Pilates, and a team of fitness experts is on hand for advice, assessment or personal training.

The Swing Factory is Peak's golf simulator where you can play on 30 of the world's most famous golf courses. One of the resident professional coaches may also be on hand for daily lessons or for just improving your game. 

What were the treatments like?

I had the Pevonia Prescriptive Facial (75 minutes, £90). This facial combines a detailed consultation and in-depth skin analysis to create a tailor made treatment.

My therapist, Ruta, collected me from the lounge for my 3D skin analysis. The skin scanner takes three separate 3D digital photographs of your face. These measure wrinkle depth, skin contouring, pore size, bacterial growth, ultraviolet sun damage, and hydration. Ruta showed me my images and outlined the areas of concern. I was not too shocked by the results but the pictures are really quite scary. My faced was very dehydrated with extensive environmental damage; I had congested pores and the beginning of fine lines. Based on this assessment, Ruta decided on a tailor-made treatment for my skin and took me through to the treatment room.

I lay face-up on a heated treatment bed, under a warm cover in the dimly lit room. Ruta began the facial with a deep double cleanse using Pevonia Timeless Balm Cleanser. The cleanser is mixed with water and turns into a foam that smells of chamomile and lemon. Ruta then painted on the Enzymo-Sphérides Cream which contains fruit extracts, in particular pineapple, papaya and calendula. This enzyme peel is activated with steam; Ruta directed the thin vapour of warm steam at the centre of my face around the most congested pores. Once she had removed the peel ,she protected my eyes with an eye pillow and did some extraction focusing on my nose and chin. She applied the Rejuvenating Dry Skin Mask to my face, neck and décolletage and massaged my neck and shoulders while the mask was hydrating my skin. Finally, she applied C Evolutive Eye Gel and Age-defying Marine Collagen Cream.

After my treatment, I definitely noticed immediate visible results in the condition of my skin as well as tone and brightness; it felt soft to touch, less dry and flaky, and I was pleasantly surprised.

The Peak Health Club and Spa uses Murad, Ytsara, Pevonia, VOYA. Other treatments on offer include facial therapies, massages, body treatments and wraps, men's grooming and IPL laser treatments. The Pevonia facials are all tailored to individual skin-types using the 3D skin scanner. 

Food Facts

The Club Room, on the ninth floor behind the spa reception, is a relaxed lounge where you can recharge. The panoramic views are simply stunning and there is a choice of either a healthy buffet or light meals. The décor is bright and the sofas and armchairs comfy. Even though not all the guests are from the spa (and thus not all dressed in white towelling robes,) I was so relaxed that I didn't feel self-conscious or out of place.

We loved / We didn't love

The amazing views! And the full-length indoor swimming pool in the centre of London.

We didn't love the fact that the spa and health club facilities are spread over two floors; this may create a bit of a disjointed spa journey for some.

Who do you think would like it?

The Peak Health Club and Spa offers the perfect way to relax after a hard day's shopping. Hotel residents or friends looking for an upmarket urban spa with all the trimmings in the centre of London will enjoy themselves here.

What bubble rating did you give this spa?

We gave The Peak Health Club and Spa a Good Spa Guide Rating of Five Bubbles. The treatments are well designed and delivered by highly trained professional therapists. The spa is very grand but refreshingly unpretentious and unintimidating; the atmosphere is relaxed and the facilities first class. This city spa offers a complete spa experience with amazing panoramic views.
