Mandarin Oriental Fitness Centre, Hyde Park
Great for: Hiring a personal trainer
The Fitness Centre at the Mandarin Oriental is home to what the hotel calls “the most in-demand PT in the world”. Ruben Tabares is his name and he’s helped countless stars get in shape, including David Haye, Amir Khan and John Terry.
As well as access to a world-class PT, your membership at the Mandarin Oriental’s gym gets you into one of the finest spas in London, with a discount on treatments too.
It’s an R&R paradise, with a mineral water Vitality Pool, an amethyst crystal steam room and Buddha statuettes lining the walls. Rumour has it this is one of the best places in London to get a massage too.
