During the past months our teams have been busy working to raise our standards even further to ensure that we will be ready to keep you safe during your time with us at Akasha. As a result we have created 'Akasha Safe Spa', a set of procedures and promises that we make to you so that you can feel confident when making a booking or planning a visit.

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.

There is a private Hammam for purifying scrubs and massages and a Vichy shower for cleansing hydrotherapy rituals. Akasha also boasts London’s first Watsu pool for tailored hydro-treatments and guided meditation.
