The Royal Indulgence
The Royal Indulgence
Price per person
The Royal Indulgence is inspired by the most iconic British ritual of all: a cup of tea.
Immerse yourself in an experience that showcases the many benefits of tea. The key element of The Royal Indulgence is to take you to a deep state relaxation through our exquisite tea-based experience. The Georgians were the first to enjoy tea and sweets and you can relive the opulence of this era in our 18th Century Townhouse while submerging into our private bath infused with an Earl Grey tea soak.
You will start the experience by entering the Vaporium to prepare your skin for a full body exfoliation using tea-based oil and a body plane, a tool inspired by the strigil which was a curved blade used in Greek bathhouses to gently scrape your skin and cleanse it of any debris and impurities. The result is a smoother and more refined skin appearance.
This is followed by a 45 minute full body massage with aromatic tea oil that will help to reduce your muscle tension and relax your mind before entering our wonderful private bath in which you will enjoy an exclusive Earl Grey tea soak, rich in powerful antioxidants and polyphenols that purify and protect your skin.
Whilst you soak, stimulate your senses with a guided tasting of exceptional teas and herbal infusions all accompanied with chocolates designed exclusively for this experience.
During this iconic experience you'll have access to our signature Ancient Thermal Baths, where you can take a tour at your own pace through baths at different temperatures (hot, cold, warm, ice): The jets bath, the Vaporium (Steam Room with aromatherapy), and the Flotarium (Salt Water Bath), in addition to the salt exfoliation area.

Body and mind benefits:
Tea is known for its high concentration of polyphenols and flavonoids – compounds which help to protect and nurture the skin for a healthier look and feel. Absorb these benefits throughout our massage with tea oil and the exclusive tea soak
Our full body massage is designed to gently reduce muscle tension and relax the mind. Our aromatic oil helps to calm any stress and tension.
The teas we have chosen for our tasting journey have been selected not only because of their flavour but also the health properties they hold from aiding digestion, reducing inflammation to antioxidant protection and relaxation.
Exfoliation is key to maintaining healthy and smooth skin. Lymphatic drainage helps the body’s natural detoxification process, reduces water retention, and stimulates circulation, invigorating the skin.
Tips and recommendations:
Your body is wise and will know when to get out of the water to change from one bath to another at a different temperature.
We recommend alternating hot and cold baths for better stimulation of your body.
Keep your body hydrated, especially after the Vaporium. Remember that at all times you will be able to access the relaxation room where you will always have cold water and our special selection of AIRE Tea at your disposal.
Before beginning the ritual we recommend spending two to three minutes in the Vaporium or steam bath to help the skin pores to dilate and the exfoliation to be more effective.
If during your massage, at any time you feel that the pressure is too intense or too light, please indicate this to your therapist
