London might not be the first place that leaps to mind when you think of reclining hot tub or jacuzzi side, but trust us; this city is a bubbling pit of them. Hotels house them in sumptuous spas and some even adorn their rooms with them. They’re romantic, snug water dens that will make any city break, whether you live here or not, that little bit more “ahhhh”. So whether it’s for personal use, you’re treating the better half or you just want to escape the chilly streets for an hour or two, here’s where to find hotels with hot tubs:
The Bermondsey Square Hotel
We don’t think that a private suite looking over the London skyline with a jacuzzi that can fit up to six people is what the Beatles were thinking about when they wrote Lucy in the ‘Sky with Diamonds.’ But, step-aside Lennon-McCartney and make room for the Bermondsey Square Hotel’s Lucy in the Sky Suite. This private room is equipped with a terrace that allows for guests to relax in their own hot tub on the outside, rooftop portion of the inside-outside suite.
The Athenaeum Hotel Residences
A place of peace comfort in the center of bustling London. The hotel is not only up to par on the most lavish Penthouses and spacious family rooms, but also includes luxury treatment at the REN Spa. The spa features various treatments including facial and body treatments as well as a sauna and two large Cedar Wood hot tubs, perfect for unwinding after a long day of exploring all of the sights London has to offer.
Sanctum Soho Hotel
The only thing we want more than a rooftop hot tub is a 24-hour bar, and those things are both featured on the rooftop terrace of Sanctum Soho. All suites are outfitted with their own private entrance to the rooftop, which can be accessed at any time of the day. With everything you need right there—hot tub, bar, and fireplace—you will never want to leave.
M By Montcalm
Ultra-modernity is at the heart of stylish hotel M by Montcalm. The venue also plays host to a jacuzzi sitting snug by the pool making you feel completely transported away from the world, despite being just a stone’s throw away from Shoreditch. Tranquil is the word of the moment at this hotel.
St Pancras Renaissance Hotel
Hidden beneath the lively streets of London, the old station building turned luxurious hotel, St Pancras oozes richness and adventure. From fine dining restaurants to an elaborate spa that features a steam room, sauna, treatment rooms, and a large pool with a hot tub topped with high-powered water jets.

K West Hotel and Spa
This is quite literally the home of ‘shop till you drop.’ Located in Shepherds Bush by the massive Westfield is K West Hotel and Spa, which offers guests a luxurious spa experience to its guests. At the apex of this experience is their hydrotherapy pool, which takes the hot tub to new heights. Its features include stainless steel recliners that allow you to sit back and behold the twinkling skylights, while warm bubbles massage your submerged body.
The Sanderson Hotel is a 150 room design hotel, grandiose in nature with towering mounted oil paintings and things quintessentially British. There’s also a two storey spa and gym and whilst pictures of this are somewhat limited, we think this adds to the intrigue. Either way there’s a hot tub and that’s what you’re here for after all!
The Bentley Hotel
Perfectly representing London’s mix of magnificence and posh style, the interior radiates elegance and comfort. The hotel includes private jacuzzis in every room and guests are sure to bubble their troubles away in the authentic Turkish spa bath.
Shangri La Hotel At The Shard
As if we needed any more reasons to want to stay at one of London’s most iconic buildings, The Shard, then we hear that it has the highest jacuzzi in all of western Europe. You can lounge in the water bed and enjoy the panoramic view, which is made unabridged with the floor to ceiling windows. The terrace is also adorned with a Bose sound system, which allows you to customize your own ‘on top of the world’ ambiance.
Corinthia Hotel London
Though the Corinthia is located merely steps away from Trafalgar Square, Westminster, the River Thames, and Covent Garden, the hotel proves to be a destination within itself. With lavish rooms, exquisite Penthouses and not one, but two world-class restaurants, guests are certain to have the stay of a lifetime. One of the most luxurious facilities the Corinthia has to offer is their spa, set with a sauna, steam room, an ice fountain, and a vitality pool with relaxing air and water massage jets. Visitors will experience another level of leisure as they are able to fully immerse themselves in all of the pleasures the spa has to offer.
If you are longing to escape to a place of utter bliss, the Landmark London is sure to do the trick. Ease your mind and body in the hotel’s spa and health club, where an array of facilities are offered, a soothing jacuzzi being one of them. This toasty treat is a perfect getaway from the bitter cold London winter and the whole experience will be one of pure enjoyment.
Hotel Café Royal
This converted Soho restaurant has been transformed into a modern lodging masterpiece. As part of this reinvention, a state of the art spa, which boasts a variety of wellness techniques and facilities, was erected and has become a feature piece of the venue. Hydrotherapy sessions and holistic treatments are complemented with a lap pool and series of jacuzzis.
