K West is a smart and sophisticated option with attractive decor that's a blend of contemporary and traditional. It may be a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of London's main attractions, but the beautiful spa is the main draw on-site, with sleek style and impressive facilities (the jetted hydrotherapy pool and "Snow Paradise" room are both particularly noteworthy). Treatments focus on hot-cold therapy where guests switch back and forth between steamy saunas and frigid ice boxes. These transitions are meant to stimulate body circulation and improve the immune system. Techniques such as these originated in Germany and are a variation on a unique Finnish treatment. The “Snow Paradise” room [pictured here], which exemplifies the methodology best, is kept at a mere five degrees Fahrenheit and is designed to resemble a snow drift. Brrrr!
