Bulgari Spa, London

The Gentlemen’s Signature Experience offers a mens-only take on the traditionally female spa experience. Tucked and hidden five floors below the ground floor of the Antonio Cittero Patricia Viel & Partners-designed Bulgari hotel in Knightsbridge, the Bulgari spa is a true hidden gem.

At Gentlemen’s Signature Experience, things start off with an old fashion, barbershop style wet shave and hair cut. But you’re not in a room filled with other men getting the same treatment; instead, you’re in a room entirely alone, and after your cut, you’re treated to a scalp massage. Barbers at the Bulgari spa don’t just settle for a simple shave-‘n-go, either; they’re also knowledgeable about all of Bulgari’s men’s colognes.

The Telegraph reports that post-haircut is when the real fun begins. Patrons are ushered into the Edward Sahakian Cigar Shop and Sampling Lounge where a specially-appointed “cigar sommelier” takes you through every option available, making sure that your cigar matches your tincture of choice. Every facet of the experience hinges on your likes and dislikes — and is tailor-made to suit your needs.

The Bulgari Spa is open to guests and a restricted membership from 6:30 am until 10 pm. It spans two floors and features 11 treatment rooms, a fitness room, several steam rooms, saunas, ice showers, a private spa suite and relaxation room with a fireplace.
