Address: 51 Buckingham Gate, London SW1E 6BS

Best for: Indian wellness

Jiva Spa at Taj 51

If you’re looking for a luxury spa break in London that brings royal style and setting, then I’d highly recommend Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences.

Here you can discover and make use of their incredible Jiva Spa, where traditional Indian treatments meet Temple Spa’s Mediterranean wellness philosophy.

I was lucky enough to experience an indulgent massage treatment at Jiva Spa and it was hands down one of the best massages I’ve ever had.

My mind and body were induced into a dreamy state of relaxation, while the knots and tension in my upper back were melted away.

Combined with a soak in the inviting vitality pool and a chance to unwind in the impressive sauna, I left feeling rejuvenated and relaxed.

Jiva Spa Treatment Room

This five star heritage spa hotel is just a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace and Mayfair. It was once the home of the Lords and Ladies of the Royal Court, so trust me when I say that you’re in good company here!

There are various sized suites meaning you can enjoy a luxury spa break on your own or with a larger group of friends.

Onsite are four restaurants, including Michelin-starred Quilon. Afternoon tea is served in Kona – a perfect addition to a wonderful spa weekend.
