It’s that time of year again – New Year’s Resolutions, eek!
If you plan to visit London in the near future, it’s worth choosing a hotel to keep you on track to meet your health-related goals in 2018.
Here is our rundown of 3 quite different London hotels that cater especially well to health-focused travelers:
1. The Shangri-La Hotel at the Shard – for Wellness Luxury Seekers
The Shangri-La Hotel at the Shard is a luxurious 5-star hotel which is keen to assist health-conscious travelers to stay on track to meet their fitness goals by offering a wellness program.
By signing up for a personalized wellness program you can book invigorating fitness sessions such as HIT training sessions and yoga sessions and feast on mouthwatering nutritionally-balanced meals for your stay in London. Every participant gets to order room service from a special wellness menu. The hotel has a fabulously-swanky indoor swimming pool too.
Better yet, the Shangri-La at the Shard also organises a running group, hosted by a qualified personal trainer.
2. Ace Hotel London – for Healthy Hipsters
If you’re looking for a more down-to-earth and fun accommodation option, you may be interested in the Ace Hotel London, which tailors its services to a health-conscious clientele.
Not only does it offer a fully-equipped modern gym and sauna to sweat out any of those nasty toxins, but Ace Hotel London also operates a farm to street style kitchen and on-site juice bar – both of which may help nudge you towards healthy choices. Plus there are bikes for guests to help you burn off what you eat!
If the idea of eating organic and local produce appeals, it’s well worth considering Ace Hotel London. Even the cheese and sauces which appear on the menu are sourced from local producers.
And the hotel is located in the heart of ‘hipsterville’ Shoreditch so you get access to some of London’s trendiest bars and restaurants.
3. Andaz London Liverpool Street – for Fitness Obsessives
This convenient hotel right by the busy station has a 24-hour health club, with a wide array of health sessions and treatments.
Examples include private physiotherapy sessions, muscle activation techniques sessions, and pilates sessions. The latter take place in a fully equipped Pilates studio and are run by an experienced Pilates tutor.
So if you want to ensure that your body is in tip-top shape ready to face anything this year, it’s worth taking advantage of the Andaz’s health facilities – there is even a special wellness experience in their hidden Masonic Temple!
The on-site fitness center open through the night boasts TV screens, a range of cardio machines, free weights, core stability machines and a punching bag. If you are keen on fast-tracking your fitness goals, you’ll also be able to book the services of a personal trainer for the duration of your stay.
If you’re a keen runner, the friendly staff members at the health club will be more than happy to map out a variety of nearby routes to explore.
No matter which of the health-focused hotels above you choose, you’ll have no trouble getting your New Year’s Resolutions off to a flying start!
