The hotly-anticipated Raffles London at The OWO has announced an exclusive partnership with luxury cosmetics house Guerlain that will result in the opening of London’s first Guerlain-branded destination spa, as well as a members-only health club powered by movement specialist PILLAR. 

Slated to open in late 2022, the exclusive Guerlain Spa will offer a holistic wellbeing experience with a focus on restorative wellness and active training. 

Designed by interior design studio Goddard Littlefair, the expansive spa and wellness space will occupy four levels at the heart of the grade II-listed property. It will feature nine treatment rooms and a separate VIP area, two couples suites, and beauty treatment spaces, including a barbers and salon.

Signature Guerlain treatment menu

The spa will take a highly-tailored approach to treatments, offering a signature menu curated by Guerlain to combine cutting-edge therapies with its skincare products and fragrances. 

It will also feature two dedicated wellness suites. Aimed at those looking for total seclusion, the elegantly designed suites will offer a comprehensive menu of Guerlain treatments, as well as private training and a nutritious food menu from PILLAR. The suites will also be equipped with light training equipment and open spaces for yoga.

“To introduce Guerlain to London for the first time will be a very special moment for us, especially in a space with such incredible heritage, countless stories and such meaningful history.”

A PILLAR of wellness

The member’s only health club – driven by PILLAR, which will also oversee the property’s training and health programming, will encompass an extensive gym with a yoga studio, as well as a juice bar, a 20m indoor swimming pool, a vitality pool and sauna and steam rooms.

Harry Jameson, co-founder of PILLAR, said: “I am looking forward to launching our new health club to create a wellness destination unlike any other in London. The experience is truly about wellbeing and has been designed to complement Guerlain’s offering. This is an opportunity to work alongside one of the world’s most exciting spa brands to create a first-class wellness club at our new home in Raffles London.”
