I was lucky enough to try Akasha at the five-star Hotel Cafe Royal on Classpass a while back. This exclusive wellness/health club is the definition of luxury. Just look at the pool!
The gym itself is quite small, so class sizes are even smaller – 2-3 people for Calisthenics and Fight Club. You won’t get the energy that you get from larger studios, but smaller groups mean more attention to form and the trainers are able to push you as far as they can. I wouldn’t say this is a must-try, but if you’re lucky enough to be a guest at the hotel, do check out the classes.
Sweat index: 2 (Calisthenics) – 7 (Fight Club)
Classes: Yoga, TRX, Calisthenics, Boxing, Circuits.
Amenities: It has everything you would expect from a 5-star hotel. Beautiful showers, fluffy towels and luxury toiletries.
