End of January calls for comforts, we mean carbs and calming nights.

London’s hottest opening Jacuzzi brings Italy to Kensington, and one of the UK’s most creative hotels helps you melt into your inner zen. This is what we’re booking this week.

EAT HERE Jacuzzi, Kensington 

Big mama strikes again. The group’s 4th outpost in London and their most luxurious opening to date, Jacuzzi is reflective of its Kensington postcode, both with it’s bountiful interiors and its indulgent menu filled with only the very best Italian prodotti. From land to sea, the menu features a range of dishes inspired by traditional recipes of various Italian regions. Highlights include Saltimbocca alla Romana, Lobster Risotto ai Frutti di Mare with a rich deeply- flavoured cuttlefish ragu, filled with frutti di mare, including Cornish lobster and masses of clams and Pizza al Caviale topped with smokey burrata and Transmontanus black caviar. To accompany the food – the wine list is an ode to Italian bubbles, the only deserving pairing for big flavours like caviar, bottarga, truffle and oysters. Spanning 3 floors and spread across 4,000 square feet, Jacuzzi is a pleasure palace filled with endless Italian artefacts from Sicilian lemon pots to Murano glass, 1,000 vintage bottles on the wall, and Versace flip-flops. There is even a retractable glass ceiling on the Sicilian mezzanine floor, which becomes a sunlit terrazza in summer.

DRINK HERE The Dorchester 

The Dorchester has unveiled its ground floor, featuring reimagined iconic spaces including The Promenade, Vesper Bar and the new Artists’ Bar, following a lengthy renovation. Stop by the Artists’ Bar for table side cocktails, champagne, seafood, surrounded by an original collection of artworks by British artists. Or perhaps the Vesper Bar, led by head bartender Lucia Montanelli, drawing on the links from the James Bond series to The Dorchester, and the author, Ian Fleming, who invented the Vesper Martini. The bar’s new interior is inspired by the spirit and elegance of the roaring thirties, a time when manners were important, yet mayhem was celebrated. In the summer months, head to the outside terrace views towards Hyde Park or the upper snug bar area for more privacy.

SLEEP HERE Beauty Sleep Bundle at Birch 

Keep your wellbeing at the top of your agenda with some well needed beauty sleep and an escape to Birch. To tone down the new year tension, melt into your inner zen with the special Beauty Sleep bundle. Stay for one-night, enjoy two invigorating massages and a space in one of their daily yoga sessions, you’ll be loosey-goosey in no time. Or unwind with your stay at one of Birch’s several rolling workshops, from Mosaics with artist Jo Thorpe to Journaling & Hatha Yoga with Katie Forsythe (one of Birch’s resident yogis). Sometimes all you need is just one night off.
