The Royal Yacht is the perfect place to bolster a my-body-is-a-temple mentality. Hugely extended and refitted at a cost of many millions to reopen in the summer last year, yet blending inside with the original 1820s hotel- where the Victorian “It Girl” Lillie Langtry held her wedding reception in 1874 – it is a triumph of thoughtful high-design. No necessity or reasonable luxury has been overlooked and Spa Sirène is a fitting monument to the god of pampering.
