THE Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre in Café Royal hotel is one of the most comprehensive wellness offerings in London. It spreads over a generous 1,200 sq m and features a large 18 m lap pool, a dedicated Watsu pool (the only London hotel to have one) offering a selection of Watsu hydro experiences and water meditation, a private hammam, a steam room, a sauna, a Vichy treatment room and an array of holistic and rejuvenating signature treatments.

Marrying innovative western practices with ancient eastern traditions, Akasha is divided into four spaces, each of which reflect one of the four natural elements – earth, water, fire and air. The lounge bar reflects the earth motif, the spa celebrates fluidity with the water theme, the gym reflects fire and air is represented in the studio space.

The gym at Akasha features state-of-the-art equipment and a spacious training area for boxing and personal training. There is a separate spinning and fitness studio. Bespoke yoga, Pilates and meditation classes are offered in a calming studio and there is also a separate meditation space available.

Café Royal is a UK institution that was established in the heart of London first in 1865, then reopened in 2012 as a modern, luxury hotel. The hotel has always been famous for its range of restaurants and bars, and is also making waves for its unique spa concept.
