Nobu Hotel London Portman Square Launches Shiawase Experiences

Nobu Hotel London Portman Square has launched a series of experiences centered around the Japanese philosophy of “Shiawase” — a celebration of happiness and wellbeing. Throughout January and February, the luxury hotel will offer a range of self-care experiences and a bespoke overnight package.

The hotel’s two-night stay bespoke package includes a Pilates class and a Detox Bento Box paired with a range of mocktails. The package enables guests to begin their year focused on creating moments of happiness and wellbeing, and is available until January 31. Nobu Pilates fuses classical Pilates principles with dynamic techniques, developed by Creative Director Marsha Lindsay. The classes explore the core principles of passion, integrity and growth through poses such as The Swan, which lengthens the spine, and Criss Cross, which strengthens the abdominals and improves posture. After a Nobu Pilates class, guests will emerge feeling stronger, lighter and invigorated.

Available at lunchtime and perfect for refueling after Nobu Pilates, the new Detox Bento Box combines energy-rich ingredients, which nourish the body and combat common winter deficiencies. It includes a sushi and nigiri selection, a Dragon Fruit Ceviche; Vegetable Spicy Garlic Donburi; Grilled Chicken with Goma Dressing; Spinach Dry Miso; and a mix of seasonal berries with coconut and lime sorbet.

The hotel has also partnered with Everleaf to create a menu of three non-alcoholic cocktails to pair with the dishes, including The Classic — Everleaf Mountain (house-made strawberry soda); Umami Tide — Everleaf Marine (salted plum, soya milk); and a No Old Fashioned — Everleaf Forest (mushroom, shiso).
