Spa Likes

"Clever, inspiring design, sublime views, a vast, clean and empty pool, solitary relaxation areas to read, write or commune with my muse."

Spa Dislikes

"Small talk, discussions about spirituality or astrology, any products containing tea tree oil or aloe (sadly am allergic), busy pools where you can’t do laps."

About this spy

A journalist, writer and mother of two teenagers, Savant Spy recently retrained as a psychotherapeutic counsellor, which feeds her love of knowledge, books and deep, philosophical conversation. An ideal spa day is about giving her brain space to muse creatively, while reconnecting to her body and senses.

“Perfect spas for me are samples of paradise where you can drift off into a state of bliss and come back with a genius new idea, or wander around in robes among gardens having Platonic dialogues. As someone who lives a lot in her head, I relish a full-body massage, hydrotherapy and heat treatments, and anything involving essential oils (well, almost anything…) to emerge feeling inspired, glowing and thoroughly interconnected.”
