A newly-launched 'immersive outdoor spa' invites stressed-out Londoners to bathe in an infrared sunset, drink in a pink mist waterfall and relax on 'meditation dunes'.

Paradise Now, dubbed 'the world's first wellbeing playground' by posh bible Tatler, is a pop-up wellness retreat located in Belgravia's Eccleston Yards, just a stone's throw from Victoria Station.

It promises to showcase the very latest wellness trends such as biohacking, nootropics, rehydration technology, urban nature bathing and touchscreen chromo-therapy.

Set in a large, open-air courtyard, it is billed as a 'unique and pioneering experience' designed to refresh and supercharge visitors in 30 minutes.

Pride of place in the outdoor spa is a huge pink mist waterfall, infused with minerals and extracts of raspberry leaf, aloe vera, chamomile and citrus where guests are invited to 'bathe in the mist of the fountain of nature'.

Also available to visitors are the haptic dunes; described as an 'immersive meditation zone' where guests can absorb nutrients from the vitamin-infused, aromatherapy-scented pebbles.

The pebbles are even painted Baker-Miller pink - a colour scientifically proven to relax and reduce anxiety.



Opposite the dunes, a huge infrared light installation shaped like the sun - dubbed a 'perpetual sunset' - will exude a warming glow.

Infrared light therapy is used to boost endorphins and metabolism, relieve depression and stimulate vitamin D production.

The sunset will be surrounded by screens streaming live sunsets from stunning locations across the world, according to Eccleston's website.

Finally, the spa's electrolyte aqua bar features water collection columns infused with different properties from each of the seven continents to transform London's rainwater into nutrient-rich filtered water.

The bar will also serve a selection of 'designer waters', infusions, and water-based cocktails.

Created by foodie dup Bompas and Parr, Paradise Now is described as 'a new hub for foodies, creatives and wellness lovers' with free entry, and runs from 7 to 15 September.

The temporary installation will have no trouble luring in millennials with its futuristic wellness offerings and neon pink colour scheme.

Co-creator Harry Parr told Wallpaper* magazine: 'Although honing our physical selves and going to the gym has become the new normal, focusing on mental well-being is definitely playing catch-up, so in that sense, Paradise Now offers a glimpse into the future.'
