The Berkeley hotel’s open air rooftop and pool – complete with retractable roof – is one of Knightsbridge’s most coveted spots. To celebrate summer, Brit botanical beauty brand Green & Spring (created by the owners of Cowley Manor hotel) has taken up a holiday residence at The Berkeley Spa (to September 30). After facials and massages in The Green & Spring Cottage, guests are invited to lounge on deck chairs on the rooftop (pool use costs an additional £45) – which has been decorated by McQueens florist as a traditional English country garden with birch trees, flowers and wild lavender. A special picnic menu is on offer for those who feel peckish.
The Berkeley Health Club & Spa, Wilton Place, SW1X 7RL (020 7201 1699).
