Dolphin Square, SW1

if yesterday taught me one thing, it's that exercise isn't my forte. burgers, on the other hand, are my speciality. with a little taster of everything Dolphin Square has to offer, the blogger's day lead three fitness enthused, foodie loving bloggers through an intensive workout session, an indulgent lunch, and a spa treatment in the complex's moroccan inspired spa. it was the thought of said indulgent lunch that got me through the fitness class, lead by personal trainer, philipe (who, by the way, is an absolute unit). we squatted, star-jumped and sweated our way through a forty minute class, before being lead upstairs to the bar and grill, which was much more my scene.

after a little insight into the inspiration behind the menu, i, of course, jumped at the chance to try the burger. the sweet potato fries were to die for, and while the other bloggers gorged on salads, prawns and sandwiches, i devoured one of the best burgers i've had in quite some time. we chatted about travel, trends and the online world, slurping on the finest in fizzy refreshments and attempting to get our breath back after the morning's manoeuvring masterclass. after lunch, we were shown some of Dolphin Square's apartments; short and long term lets, kitted-out to the highest standard. me and my colleague sam decided to try out the beds, and i can asure you, they were squishy, soft and the perfect place for a post-workout slumber.

after rolling around on beautifully made beds, we had a trot across the grounds of Dolphin Square. we walked across manicured lawns, instagrammed flower beds (standard) and explored little cubby holes hidden behind lattice fences, bestrewn with ivy. it really is a little pocket of village life, nestled in the very centre of london. escaping the rain, we discovered a Moroccan paradise in Dolphin Square's spa, offering truly authentic treatments inspired by the essence of Morocco. While the bloggers indulged in some of the spa's signature treatments, sam and I slurped on peppermint tea and relaxed in the courtyard, all in a day's work...
