Week End Bon Plan Paris

A €100 Chanel bag or a palace spa at €45… How to play the it-girl or heiress when you don’t have a bean? 4 great solutions for the life of Blair Waldorf with the wallet of Cosette.

At the Ritz Club with €45 in your pocket

spa ritz

Carla Bruni and Anna Wintour have their little habits there. Impossible to be more chic than the Ritz Club. A paradise where a Parisienne must gain access at least once in her life. Downer, this dream costs €200 even before booking a treatment… Except if you have the right info..

Keep your ears wide open: during the entire month of March, the Ritz Club offers to Parisiennes the privilege of booking courses “individually” without paying an entrance fee. Treating yourself to an aquabike (45 €), aqua sculpt or Watsu session, un very trendy offshoot of shiatsu in the water (€60) here is an invitation to take a dip in the most chic pool in Paris, sharing the locker of stars, and spending an hour in the super snobby showers of the Chanel spa. Pilates, yoga or floor bar.

We like: hanging out and chilling at the ultimate in pos bar of the Ritz Club with a nice café and leaf through the available glossy magazines, and of course, post on Instagram directly from the palace.

Until the 31st of March. Reservations and course planning on 01 43 16 30 60. All the information on www.ritzparis.com
