Glass enjoys the Bentley Hotel’s Chocolate Delight massage

THERE are two things in life that are universally loved: chocolate and massages. So the clever people at The Bentley Hotel decided to put together the Chocolate Delight package which features a cocoa full-body exfoliation followed by a hot shower and a full-body Swedish massage with oil fragranced with chocolate essence. The experience is completed with a delicious gourmet hot chocolate in the opulent, Persian inspired relaxation area.

The Bentley Hotel spa

The chocolate isn’t just a gimmicky addition because it smells nice. The raw cocoa is detoxifying, increases endorphins – which improves your mood, contains minerals such as zinc and magnesium which help the skin and body decrease stress as well as increasing the natural production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Other benefits include improving the circulation and hydrating and rejuvenating the skin.


The Bentley Hotel marble Hamman


The spa itself is possibly the most intimate spa you’ve ever been in and feels devoted entirely to you. Despite its petite size it boasts an authentic and stunning authentic marble Hammam – a rare feature in London hotels. Traditional Hammam treatments include a full body black soap cleanse followed by an Ayurvedic spiced scrub, known for its ancient healing properties and a purifying Rassoul lava clay mask infused with honey, rose and ginger mask and melted shea butter.
