International Urban Zen:

Beditation Butler at DUKES LONDON – Perhaps one of the most essential ways to practice wellness is with a good night’s sleep. This mindful room service at the peaceful, yet centrally located property has a butler that provides herbal teas, specialized podcasts and playlists offering tips on calming breathing exercises to ensure guests leave the worries of the day behind before laying their heads to rest. The service is available to guests staying in the property’s new Duchess Suites, recently refurbished with luxurious Liberty Fabrics. Guests can then continue to nurture their minds and bodies in the day ahead with any of The Health Club’s unique spa treatments from a Hydrating Sugar Cane Scrub to Deluxe Hot Stone Massage.

Yaku Spa at Country Club Lima Hotel – Escape the winter chill and head to sunny Lima, Peru where Country Club Lima Hotel’s Yaku Spa provides a quiet sanctuary in the heart of the lively cultural hub. The Peruvian retreat offers a wide selection of specialized services from the signature Yaku, providing exfoliation with oats and honey, Yaku treatment massage, and Yaku facial, to the Samay, which includes an exfoliation treatment with Andean grains, Rumi Quñi massage and Andean facial herbs. Other services include acupuncture, hot stone treatments, hydrotherapy and shiatsu massages, as well as simple classics such as facials. So that guests may continue their detoxification and work up a sweat, the property is currently in the process of revamping the main fitness center and invites guests to enjoy the Real Club gym in the interim.
