Kalyana Spa is a little slice of the Far East in Battersea. Step inside to dark wood interiors decorated with oriental flowers and stone sculptures. The spa offers three private treatment rooms, a beauty area filled with every colour of shellac imaginable and a downstairs haven with loungers, floating fabric canopies and low, soft lighting.
There’s an impressive selection of treatments available, from anti-ageing facials (where vitamins and antioxidants are absorbed in the skin using soundwaves and small, painless electrical pulses) to ache alleviating massages and a range of traditional beauty services. Body sculpting treatments that aim to contour and slim are extremely popular, as are their deep steam facials which aim to intensively cleanse, steam and exfoliate to absorb excess oil and leave the skin clear and glowing. The friendly and expert beauticians use 100% organic, Ytsara natural ingredients, which are grown on organic farms in Northern Thailand and smell just heavenly.

The hour long Ponkai Nuat Namman massage (£68) is a real treat: fragrant lemongrass and orange essential oils are gently massaged into your body using traditional Asian techniques, smoothing out any aches or pains and leaving you feeling weightless and rejuvenated.

For men, the hour-long Absolute Recovery treatment (£72) comes highly recommended and is perfect for relieving the stress and pressure of long office hours.

Mums-to-be are also catered for and their pregnancy massages can help with sciatica, oedema, backache, indigestion, insomnia and a whole host of other pregnancy related conditions. They’re also great for minimising potential stretch marks and for aiding total relaxation.
