King Street Townhouse Spa and Gym is a ‘hidden idyll of calm amidst the clamor of the city’

King Street Townhouse recently opened up memberships to their beautiful gym and spa and we were lucky enough to go to Booth Street to see the facilities.

They offer a variety of spa treatments including full body massages, facials, hot stone treatments, and much more.

You can take a look at your complete treatment options here.

The spa is located next to the magnificent hotel, famous for its beautiful infinity pool, cinema room, excellent wine cellar and stunning views over Manchester.

And more wonders await downstairs in the spa.

The city’s exclusive spa has four treatment rooms, a thermal suite, a eucalyptus steam room, an ice fountain, and heated loungers.

The spa lounge also serves light and nutritious snacks that complement the overall healthy atmosphere of the place.

Designed to provide an ‘elevated fitness and wellness experience’, the beautiful Grade II listed Italian Renaissance building hides the spa on the ground floor, opening into an impressive cozy room where I was treated to mint tea and an avocado shot, spinach, apple, lime smoothie and peanut butter to start.

Soft background music creates a relaxed atmosphere where you can let yourself go.

The spa is home to the Himalayan salt cave, unique in the north of England.

We talk to Charlie, who works at the spa, about the salt cave.

She said: “The Himalayan salt cave is the only one of its kind in the north of England, so it’s quite special.

“It is excellent for stimulating the immune system.

“The room is made of salt bricks and the shower head disperses the salt spray you inhale. It’s great to inhale and really helps with the lungs and sinuses.”

After a wonderful massage and facial with ESPA oils, I proceeded to the thermal area with sauna, steam room and Himalayan salt cave to enjoy what they have to offer.

The design of the place is absolutely beautiful, it feels like stepping into a futuristic sci-fi movie.

The steam room and sauna are beautiful and calm places where you can forget about all the problems of everyday life.

The salt cave is not only one of a kind, but the spa is also the first of its kind to use Perricone MD treatments.

Charlie continued: “We are unique in that we are the first spa in the UK to use Perricone MD’s bespoke treatments, which also include dietary treatments.

“We completely tailor your program to you and help you incorporate other lifestyle elements into your treatment.

“We also offer a wide range of massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, and waxing.”

And that’s not all, since some of the treatments include different aspects.

“Some of our body treatments include visualization and meditation, so it’s not just a massage.

“We also use hot stones to stimulate different parts of the body and make you feel like a new person.”

King Street Townhome offers different packages to customize a completely unique experience.

Charlie continued: “We do packages that include meals with champagne, use of our thermal facilities, we have other packages with cakes and sweets as well.

“We also have two and three course lunches.

“We are the best luxury experience hidden in the heart of the city. It’s good to come here and relax with no idea what’s going on around us.

“The food, the thermal treatments, the massages and facials, the treatments is quite an experience right in the heart of the bustle.

“We also have hotel and spa packages where people can stay in the beautiful hotel next door and enjoy the spa for the day. It’s a brilliant experience not to be missed!”

Upstairs the gym is packed to the brim with some of the most modern equipment you could possibly have, complete with a gym bar where you can satisfy all your nutritional and protein shake needs.

The gym includes a cardio area, a functional area, a strength area, and a free weight area.

After all that hard work relaxing, you can treat yourself (as you happily do) to afternoon tea at the Town House Hotel.

They have just launched their festive selection of afternoon tea.

If afternoon tea isn’t your thing, there’s also a ‘High Tea’ for those with a more savory tooth.

You can see the menu by clicking here.

I chose the traditional afternoon tea (£28), which was split into two parts.

Savory: Stuffed Turkey and Sage Sandwich on White Bread, Roast Beef Horseradish Mayonnaise and Arugula Wrap, Egg and Watercress Mayonnaise on White Bread, Mini Smoked Salmon Bagel, Lemon Grapefruit and Goat Cheese Whipped Cream, Foccacia balsamic.

Sweet: Warm Winter Berry Macaron, Double Chocolate Christmas Log, Spiced Pear Almond Tart, Clementine Mascarpone Cake, Cranberry Nutmeg Scone, Jam and Cream.

All in all, absolutely gorgeous selection of cakes. The hot winter berry macaron was sensational.

You have to book afternoon tea 24 hours in advance as all cakes and sandwiches are made fresh on the day.

All of this in the beautiful setting of their bar area, with lovely staff who make you feel at home, makes for a resoundingly enjoyable experience.

All in all, King Street Townhouse and Spa represents the ultimate luxury experience.

And after all, Christmas is coming up… so why not treat yourself to a truly special experience?
