Spas are the ideal place to relax and pamper yourself, but they have also become the ultimate luxury and wellness experience. Some of the best cosmetic firms offer their expertise in body care to ‘sponsor’ spas in luxury hotels around the world. Here are our favorites:
Le Goji Spa By Valmont
In the French Alps, the epicenter of European winter luxury, the sophisticated spa center gets its name from the exclusive treatments it offers with Goji berries, the Asian “red diamond” that grows in the Himalayan mountains and is known for its properties and benefits for the body’s health.
Cinq Mondes Spa – Dolce La Hulpe
With a clear environmental and social example, Cinq Mondes is a cosmetics firm created in Paris 15 years ago that has made spas one of its best business cards.
The Cinq Mondes Spa offers a sensory wellness experience in the heart of the Soignes forest, inspired by ancestral rituals practiced in Bali, India, Brazil, Japan and Polynesia.
Spa Le Bristol by La Prairie
From the moment you step into the spa at this glamorous Parisian Palace Hotel, which includes an indoor French garden and a rooftop pool with views of the Eiffel Tower, you leave all possible pampering in the hands of highly trained professionals and experts in relaxation and beauty.
Just steps from the Champs-Élysées, Paris’ most chic avenue, the Spa Le Bristol by La Prairie has eight treatment rooms, including a Russian banïya (hot and cold treatment) and a private suite, and includes a varied menu of facial and body treatments, massages and beauty care with La Prairie products, as well as a glass-enclosed, inviting indoor pool.
La Vallée Spa – Castadiva Resort & Spa
The Swiss firm La Vallée, in collaboration with the Castadiva Resort & Spa, has created a wellness experience that combines natural botanicals and the most precise scientific research for skin care, with the inclusion of lavender and lemon essential oils and spring water from the Swiss Alps.
Very close to the emblematic Italian Lake Como is this hotel, which has made relaxation and personal care treatments one of its main attractions. Among the most popular is the Caviar Essence Uniqueness, a powerful formula with active ingredients and caviar extract, with visible results in preventing the signs of aging.
Miri Miri Spa by Clarins – St. Regis Bora Bora Resort
This idyllic spa is located in the middle of its own island, within the grounds of the St. Regis Bora Bora Bora Resort, guests can choose from a variety of Polynesian and Asian-inspired treatments while enjoying wonderful views of the private St. Regis lagoon.
