Not content with having a 12-metre pool nestled around archaeological remains of a Roman bathouse, a sauna, a steam room, an ice fountain, a sensory shower, a mani and pedi room, and five therapy rooms, the Heavenly Spa by Westin, at the newly-opened Westin London City, also boasts a UK first facial treatment.

Philosophia Botanica’s Meridian Flow Golden Facial and exclusive skincare collection is only available at the Heavenly Spa and it’s as luxurious as the name suggests. Created by Francesca Canzano-Franklin, the holistic treatment blends African botanicals (found in the 100% natural Philosophia Botanica products) and traditional Eastern techniques, including Chinese medicine and meridian balancing. First adaptogenic botanical oils are worked into the skin using a gauss micro-stimulator, magnetic pen and a copper gua sha sculpting spoon, before gold-coated micro-magnetic pearls are applied over the meridian and acupuncture points of the face, which is designed to increase circulation and encourage collagen production to plump the skin and reduce the signs of wrinkles.

If that sounds like your kinda spa day, the Meridian Flow Golden Facial is £170 for 90 minutes and the Heavenly Spa by Westin is open daily.
