Return to the essence of creation in London's holistic wellbeing

Before earth, water, fire and air, the legends say, there was Akasha, the source of all creation. At Hotel Cafe Royal, you're invited to return to that source – Akasha Holistic Wellbeing. Here at our exclusive wellness club, spacious facilities for exercise and massage are just the beginning. From nutrition to meditation, and Reiki to Watsu, you can enjoy expert treatments, therapies and training offered at no other London hotel. Akasha – the way to start the perfect London day, or unwind after one.


The Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre provides a unique wellbeing experience that assists members in promoting human potential, health, happiness and fulfilment while improving personal balance.
