Pampering ourselves in London

Here's why you should pamper yourself while traveling. 

Thanks to Norwegian Airlines we made it safely to London-Gatwick Airport to begin our first day in London. If you want to check out why you should fly Norwegian Airlines for your next trip to the UK click here

Starting your adventure with some relaxation and rejuvenation can help you get over jet lag rather quickly. It allows you to feel less stressed and more relaxed while enjoying every minute of your new surroundings. If there is one piece of advice you can take away from this post, it’s that starting off your trip with a little pampering never goes out of style. While visiting London we highly recommend you visit the One Aldwych Hotel. Their health spa is actually one of a select number of spas in London that offer spa and beauty treatments and it was our first stop on our London trip, where we were able to enjoy a cleansing facial and massage. When we arrived at the spa we were welcomed by their friendly staff who served us a complimentary beverage before utilizing their amazing amenities. We took full advantage of there 18-meter swimming pool, steam room, and sauna while waiting for our treatments. The facial and massage treatment we experienced was exactly what we needed after traveling for more than 15 hours from our apartment in Los Angeles to our hotel in London. Our beautician Tatyanna took great care of us and we are counting down the days until we can go back to London to see her again for her services!

Another thing you should do while traveling across the globe, is treat yourself to delicious cuisine! We love food, probably more than we love most things and we took full advantage of it at One Aldwych’s restaurant, Eneko. When we say the food was delicious we mean that it was spectacular. 3-starred Michelin Chef Eneko Atxa showcases his fresh and modern Basque dishes and the menu is something everyone should experience while visiting London; each dish was prepared fresh and definitely didn’t lack in flavor. Check out the images of the dishes we had below! 

You always want to start off your travels on the right foot and getting that full stomach and relaxed body can really make your trip even more enjoyable. To see more about our time at One Aldwych check out our vlog below. Huge thank you to VisitBritain.com for bringing us to Great Britain!
