REX FEATURES 😉
I was lucky to be invited to the opening at the SKC. I loved the Vibe, Crowd, Restaurant, Food, Spa, Gym and other facilities. If you live in London, don’t hesitate to check out The South Kensington Club SKC 😉 Yesterday I was wearing YSL sandels, my Valentino Bag and my Lonkel Paris dress. I had natural make up, using, Mac foundation, Mac Powder, white Dior eyeshadow, mixed with purple and My Lovely DIOR SHOW mascara. 😉
It’s my pleasure to introduce you to the South Kensington Club, an innovative private members’ club, inspired by a spirit of adventure and a multicultural perspective. A place for you to feel at home. Enjoy the surroundings, the limitless potential to explore and expand your horizons, whilst benefiting from the state of the art facilities.
The Club draws on ancient rituals from around the world to promote fitness, health and the spirit of discovery. It is simultaneously a place to learn and be inspired, to connect with like-minded individuals, or to retreat and unwind in total privacy.
Whatever your definition of escape’, you should find it here. The facilities are unparalleled as is our commitment to our members. We look forward to introducing you to your new club. (look at the Club pictures below)
“A re-energising escape from the crazy pace of London life” is how Sicilian hospitality impresario Luca Del Bono describes his concept for the South Kensington Club, a stylish, health-conscious haven for private members.
The vast Georgian building once housed Ronnie Wood’s notoriously decadent Harrington Club. Membership starts at £2,250 for overseas members, with a fee of £2,800 for under 30s and £3,500 for full membership.
The club’s lavish bathhouse is to be a major draw – set to proffer fragrant wood-panelled Russian banyas with private plunge pools, shimmering mosaic-lined Turkish hammams, London’s only saltwater Watsu pool (“with seawater imported from Sicily”, Del Bono deadpans… But is he joking?), a discreetly positioned beauty salon and a clutch of private treatment rooms, all to be furbished in a sensual, Mediterranean-cum-colonial scheme that looks blessedly timeless and welcoming, dotted about with greenery.
Fitness areas will be likewise gracious and “state of the art”, with a dedicated hot-yoga room, spinning studio, Pilates space and unusually airy gym on the top floor featuring a conservatory roof that floods the room with daylight. A gentle cool-down post workout is suggested via the juice bar, which will open out onto an elegant open-air terrace – a nice spot to consult your expert nutritionist and/or trainer to tweak that personal programme to perfection.
If all this sounds a little puritanical, fear not, hedonists. There’ll also be a bar and linger-worthy restaurant serving Italian-inspired cuisine and wood-fired pizzas. So that gluten-free resolution might be challenged a little.
