Coconut Lane X K West Hotel & Spa

Tis' the season for Christmas parties!! Here at Coconut Lane HQ, we thought we'd do things a bit different this year! A Festive Afternoon Tea, Spa Day and some Christmas shopping was the perfect end to the year for us Gals at Coconut Lane. The Westfield at Shepherd's Bush was our chosen shopping destination, so what better hotel to rest our feet in than the K West Hotel & Spa - just minutes away from the shopping centre (perfect!). We were so wowed by our experience that we wanted to share it with you.

On arrival we were amazed by the building's unique design (the hotel was redesigned in 2014!), oozing chic interiors and welcoming staff. We started our day with some much needed relaxation in the hotel's luxury, holistic Spa which was awarded "Best Spa in London" at the Good Spa Guide Awards in 2015 (and we can see why!). Tucked away on the ground floor, we were well equipped with robes and flip flops. From a state of the art sauna, herbal steam room and solarium to a twinkling hydrotherapy pool with massaging jets - the chic, relaxing atmosphere was the perfect treat for us Coconut Lane gals.  

What did we love?

The "Snow Paradise" room was such a unique experience which every Spa Queen needs to try! Walk from the sauna to snow room and experience the alternating temperatures leaving you feeling refreshed and invigorated.  

After our relaxing spa session it was time for our Glam Rock Afternoon Tea! We were seated in the super christmassy Studio Kitchen and absolutely loved the sassy holographic style teacups and saucers - perfect for a Coconut Lane type of gal, matching all our iridescent accessories... (*spot the holographic hearts phone case*)

The tea itself was a special K West bespoke blend - a combo of green and black tea with notes of cherry, peony and peppercorns - seriously yummy and refreshing. Now for the good bit… the food. The 'Rock 'N' Savoury Rolls' were to die for - our particular fave was the halloumi, tomato and avocado rainbow sliders (cos who doesn't like a cheeky bit of avo). The scones were super fresh and very 'melt in the mouth'. 

 What did we love?

The 'Sweet Child of Mine' sweet treats were adorable - a mini marshmallow ice cream cone and the cutest white chocolate snowman. 

We later understood the reason behind the Rock themed afternoon tea! The Hotel used to be a BBC Recording Studio in the 70s and 80s with a host of Rock N' Roll legends having recorded music here over the years! (including David Bowie and Bob Marley... not that we're name dropping or anything).

Our room was a stylish and spacious suite, featuring a separate lounge area with gorgeous purple velvet sofas - the perfect place for a quick creative Coconut Lane meeting! Featuring The White Company toiletries (which were amazing!!) and a top notch coffee machine - the room had all the little touches of a luxury hotel.

What did we love?

Our room came with our very own Smartphone to use throughout our stay. Oh and not to mention the top of the range Bose speakers too!

We absolutely LOVED our stay at K West Hotel & Spa... the hotel perfectly combines fun and vibrance with chic decor and that all important luxurious touch. Whether you're keen for a Spa or Shopping Retreat - K West is a great choice and we couldn't recommend it more Chicas. 

What did we love?

Our fave spot was probably the festive chalet which had luxurious faux fur throws and THE most beautiful tree we ever did see. The perfect place to relax with a glass of bubbly or a cocktail...
