Choo! Choo! All aboard the Spa Train with Ainhoa City Spa

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 15 - 2012

If you’ve been assuming that the most magical thing about train stations is Platform 9 3/4, you’ve been looking in the wrong place.  Head around the corner to St Pancras International and feast your eyes upon a thing of real beauty, the station’s new pop-up spa: Ainhoa City Spa.

A spa?  In a train station?

Ainhoa City Spa

Let’s face it, any kind of transit hub has the potential to be the most stressful part of our day, especially at this time of year.  Whether you’re mid-journey, putting the finishing touches to your Christmas shopping, or just out on the razz with some friends – you won’t be far from some dedicated pampering to keep your wheels firmly on the rails.

Ainhoa City Spa will be open throughout the festive season until the end of January, offering free express treatments to customers every day and selling Ainhoa luxury skincare products and other spa services, the first time the award-winning Spanish skincare has been available to directly purchase in the UK.

  1. I wish they had this at Paddington Station, I’d be all over it!

  2. Sydney says:

    I LOVE THIS. I repeat, love this.

    I love it even more that I am going to be there twice over the next month.
    This is an amazing idea.

    Even if it wasn’t free I’d be tempted, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve missed my train and had to wait an hour for the next – this would be a perfect way to kill that time :)
