London’s 45 Park Lane Debuts New Spa

Discover The Spa at 45 Park Lane.


An inviting pool, the longest on Park Lane, is just one of the tempting amenities at The Spa at 45 Park Lane.

While the Dorchester Collection’s 45 Park Lane in Mayfair, London, has always served as an enticing place to stay, it just got even more tempting with the debut of The Spa at 45 Park Lane. The 10,000-square-foot spa features Park Lane’s longest pool at 20-meters in addition to a personal training room and a state-of-the-art fitness center complete with Technogym equipment.

The spa is part of the Mayfair Park Residences, which are located next to the hotel. Guests of the hotel will have full access to the facilities, which include separate sauna and steam rooms, a hydrotherapy pool, and private changing and shower rooms, as part of their stay.

Designed by Jouin Manku, the spa brings a sense of the outside in. It incorporates artistic flora with traditional Roman-style mosaics from Venetian artisans, natural timber and light-colored stones, and timber-slatted ceilings to create better acoustics within the pool area, gym, and relaxation lounge.

The hotel’s art curator Lily Ackerman chose works by American fine art photographer Jin-Woo Prensena and British sculptor Jill Brelowitz to embellish the space. 45 Park Lane has long been associated with the art world, hosting exclusive exhibitions and gallery residences. It provides a platform for emerging artists as well as featuring a collection of established works from artists such as Damien Hirsch, Sir Peter Blake, Patrick Hughes, and more. The new wellness space is no exception.

The relaxation lounge, which is connected to the pool, also features an open fireplace. Guests can enjoy a menu of healthy dishes there by 45 Park Lane’s executive chef Jamie Shears. Individual personal training programs can also be created for guests, with either one-to-one or family-group sessions available.  

“For almost a decade, 45 Park Lane has stood amongst the best hotels in London,” says general manager John Scanlon. “As we look towards our next chapter, we are thrilled to be introducing luxury wellness into the guest experience to create one of the finest spa facilities in the capital.”
