COWSHED SPA BARCELONA | A Little Oasis To Relax, Reconnect And Indulge Yourself
Ever since they opened their very first spa in the old cow shed at Babington House, Somerset in 1998, their ambition has been to create beautiful spas with exceptional products that are always honest, natural and authentic. With such philosophy, they have gone beyond the British land and have exported their concept all over the world, along with the establishment of Soho House in cities such as: Berlin, Miami, London, New York, Istanbul, Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire and more recently Barcelona.
Being the first Soho House Spa to open in Spain, Cowshed is located on the lower lobby of Soho House Barcelona, welcoming members, hotel guests and anyone looking to relax and rejuvenate with their wide offer of treatments. Among the treatments we find everything from manicures to pedicures, skin-perfecting facials or body salt scrubs. Following a design aesthetic determined by its location -which is their modus operandi-, the interior design has taken inspiration from the traditional Spanish pharmacy, converting Cowshed into an absolute chic, cozy and authentic space. The spa counts on four signature mani-pedi chairs, four treatment rooms, and an indoor heated pool that thanks to Soho’s House “sociable grooming” policy, you can enjoy in the company of friends or family.
All the products -ranging from handcare, body care, skin care, mother & baby- are made in England, using organic or wildcrafted plant extracts. The 7 essential oil blends (known as the ‘moods’) are expertly crafted to boost one’s mind, spirit and well-being. Moreover, their hard-working formulations offer real, noticeable benefits for the skin, hair and body. Inspired by traditional herbal remedies for their therapeutic benefits, all products are free from parabens, petrochemicals, sulphates, artificial fragrances and colours.
