Armani Spa, Milan

Everything about the Armani Hotel Milan feels exclusive especially the super slick and stylish spa. Located high up on the seventh floor is a place of ultimate tranquility that reflects the Armani lifestyle and design philosophy. It is a minimalist space with personal fitness area and gym, sauna and steam rooms, private rooms for individual treatments and, the piece-de-resistance, a stunning relaxation pool overlooking the city.

After a day of exhausting sightseeing, we could not wait for the Armani experts to work their magic. Walking into the contemporary spa reception we were both amazed by the modern appeal of the place. With the atmospheric music and subtle lighting I felt I’d entered another world – it is easy to relax in surroundings like these.

We were treated like royalty, taken through to the VIP treatment suite and given thick towelling robes. Our massage room had great views of Milan, and at this time of day the Italian city glowed with a hazy charm. Our therapists were incredibly thorough noting down all our preferences before the treatment began.

The hour-long massage was blissful. Using Armani own brand jasmin and jade oil, the therapists used their hands to systematically release all signs of physical tension, allowing much more freedom in our muscles. I gradually felt the stress seep away.

After the treatment we wandered to the main spa area to try out the other facilities, grabbing a bottle of water from the help-yourself snack bar. The mini saunas are high-tech and luxurious with one-way glass that allows the occupier to see out without intruders spying in. The pool is the main attraction, a truly beautiful feature, that looks magazine perfect, it’s just a shame the views are somewhat shielded by blinds.

This extraordinary spa is just one part of the Milanese wonder emporium offering visitors a taste of all things Armani.
