Given that we arrived early I had plenty of time to go to the Virgin Atlantic Revivals Lounge before it closed at 1:30PM. After exiting immigration I had to turn left towards the elevator for the Terminal 3 carpark, where the Revivals Lounge is located.

Upon arrival I decided to make an appointment for a complimentary 15 minute spa treatment, and went with a head and shoulder massage. It was about 12:20PM when I arrived and the only available appointment was for 12:45PM, so I rushed to a shower room to freshen up before my massage. The shower rooms were spacious and water pressure good, with Bumble & Bumble amenities.
I finished up right around 12:45PM and was immediately fetched for my treatment. The massage room had a comfortable chair and I was given an awesome 15 minute massage, which was quite refreshing after a long flight!
The lounge itself was quite empty which was no surprise, given that it’s most busy early in the morning when it serves the most purpose for business travelers looking to have breakfast or get a shower before heading to the office.
The lounge has a bunch of tables with waitresses that roam to take drink and meal orders from the extensive menu.
I wasn’t hungry in the least, though decided to stick around for 30 minutes until the lounge closed to catch up on email. I did order a café latte, which was served with a couple of croissants.
For those of you that are interested, the breakfast menu read as follows:

At 1:30PM the lounge closed and I headed to the Heathrow Express station.
