Adamina Spa Kensington

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited for a facial at the beautiful Adamina Spa in Kensington*, located about 5-10 minutes away from Kensington High Street. Set in a lovely old building, which used to be a bank, it has the quiet feel of a bank from the outside but once inside it is such a gorgeous elegant space with high ceilings, white pillars, lovely relaxing scents and spacious treatment rooms. The spa offers a whole host of treatments from facials, massages, manicures and pedicures to osteopathy, nutrition and pilates. They also have a lovely steam room and you can book the spa for a girly pampering retreat.

Upon arrival, I was warmly welcomed at the reception desk and asked to complete a skin questionnaire so that the therapist could customise my facial according to my skin concerns and needs. After this I was invited downstairs to the changing room and oh my goodness, it's even lovelier downstairs. They have the most stunning walkway (see the image below) which has been decorated with soft ambient lighting, the changing rooms have a pretty French decor style to it and once they gave me a robe and slippers to change into, let's just say I was pretty much in heaven. I was told that downstairs is where they had the vaults and as a result you feel like the outside world has been shut away. The whole atmosphere is so warm and cosy that it simply invites you to relax and get comfortable.

My therapist and the facial I received was fantastic, after going through my questionnaire and analysing my skin she decided my skin needed hydrating (no news here as my skin has been seriously dehydrated for some time). The products used were from a brand called Comfort Zone and I was offered the Hydramemory facial, which is a deep moisturising facial that is customised specifically to your skin. She also combined the facial with some foot reflexology, which took a little getting used to as its not something I have tried before and it initially felt a little strange but once I relaxed into it, I found that it added to the whole experience as she was targeting specific points to help me relax. Afterwards my face felt soft, smooth and hydrated.

Upon finishing my treatment I was told to take my time and to relax in the indulgent relaxation suite. Not needing to be told twice, I happily settled down into a comfy seat with some refreshing tea and magazines.

All in all I completely enjoyed my visit to the spa and would happily recommend Adamina Spa. The treatment was lovely, the staff were beyond helpful and I loved that at every stage of the visit I was encouraged to unwind. It really is like a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of London. 

A full Hydramemory facial costs £80 for 60 minutes and their contact details are:
