Urban Retreat at Harrods - Spa Review
Urban Retreat at Harrods is situated on the fifth floor
of the world-famous department store in London’s
Knightsbridge. As part of a wide-ranging refurbishment
program, the Urban Retreat has been extended to include
a number of luxurious and exclusive services such as
hair and nail salons, a medispa, the Roja Dove Haute
Parfumerie, which offers a gift service whereby beautiful
Lalique crystal flacons can be filled with a range of
Lalique fragrances, and the Black Crystal Room, which
can be hired for corporate events or private parties
in combination with a variety of beauty treatments.
The environment is modern and elegant, the staff professional
and welcoming. It lives up to its name as an escape
from the big city.
Retreat’s beauty services encompass more than
thirty therapy rooms, offering an extensive selection
of world-class beauty treatments. Exclusive to the Urban
Retreat is the Crème de la Mer Spa Experience,
which helps transform your skin with a pure infusion
of Dr. Max Huber’s celebrated Miracle Broth and
a therapeutic and powerful massage. Another specialty
is John Odel’s aboriginal-inspired Kiradjee massage.
Combining acupressure, deep tissue work, healing and
gentle body mobility, Kiradjee is an exceptionally thorough
massage which leaves you so relaxed that you feel as
though you are floating outside of your body. It’s
a remarkable experience.
