3 new palace spas to try absolutely


A brief summary of the luxury spas and cabins that pamper Paris' reputation for beauty.

Spa Thalgo at the Demeure Montaigne

The place. Housed in a mansion in the 8th district, this new luxury boutique hotel combines the excellence of a palace with the character and charm of a private Haussmann house. In addition to its small hidden bar and a few atmospheric rooms, this intimate refuge shelters a dream of a spa in collaboration with the marine cosmetics brand Thalgo, where there is a swimming pool, infrared sauna, marine hammam and a truly unique treatment menu.

The mind. Insiders will appreciate the extraordinary mood of the Thermes de Vals , a masterpiece by architect Peter Zumthor. Entirely dressed in the same stones as in Vals, one would literally believe oneself in the mythical spa of the Swiss village which seems to be carved out of a mountain.

The treatment to be tested. Milk or salt crystal baths (25 min 65 €) after a good hammam or simply an ancestral Nordic ritual ARCTIC WONDER: a scrub + a massage, with a mix and match of relaxing heat and invigorating freshness that alternate to release tensions (215 €).

The extra thing. The Tea Time & Spa formula (155 €) to chill out in the 5-star hotel for an entire afternoon including a 50-minute treatment or massage to choose from, a pastry and a drink at the bar and all-day access with swimming pool, whirlpool, hammam, sauna and fitness.

Bulgari Spa

The place. The eagerly awaited opening of the Hotel Bulgari in Paris could only be spectacular. Starting with a monumental and furiously luxurious 1,300 m² spa fully in the DNA of the Roman jewelry house with semi-Olympic swimming pool, mosaic sky, Vitality Pool with massage jets, pattern of constellations and hammam in white marble under a Bulgari Constellation mosaic sky drawn by artist Luca Maleonte . Wow!

The mind. Luxurious Roman baths straight out of Antiquity: waterfalls, sandblasted glass columns, an ice fountain carved in black granite, mosaics identical to those of the Roman baths of Caracalla , cabin-suite inspired by the Dome of the Pantheon … César n ' would have imagined nothing better for his Cleopatra.

The treatment to be tested. Here no partner brands but a selection of the most cutting-edge beauty labels each in their field: Augustinus Bader for anti-aging treatment (290 €), light therapy with 111SKIN (210 €), Ananné's detox and holistic vegan protocols (180 €), the Swiss brand of Professor Urs Pohlmann or a cut signed Des Garçons , the brothers of the rue Saint-Honoré who cap the elite of fashion.

The added bonus: the ultra-chic annual membership to have access, on the same basis as hotel guests, to all the spa facilities: swimming pool, gym, cardio training, hammam and sauna (€ 7,000 per year).

Dior Spa Cheval Blanc Paris

The place. Dior has chosen the Quai du Louvre to inaugurate the very first spa of the famous fashion house. Nestled in the basement of the Cheval Blanc, facing the Pont Neuf, a 5-star hotel with a 30 m swimming pool entirely covered with mosaic by Michael Mayer was needed for this extraordinary new address. The mind. A warm Parisian apartment designed by Peter Marino with a living room, a library, wood paneling, a huge fireplace and six unique suites with evocative names (special mention to the Sauvage and its massage bed covered with alpha quartz to optimize the benefits of the treatment) that compete in luxury and technology.

The treatment to be tested. The Rêve Couture ritual provided in the New Look suite that makes any self-respecting Parisian fantasize. Six hands work together for an hour to illuminate the complexion with a floral peel, treat the feet and hands, lacquer the nails and sublimate the hair with a hairdresser. Who says better ?

The extra thing. Half-hour express treatments: the 30-minute Petits Bonheurs (€ 120). Not to mention the exclusive two-hour treatments (from € 220), combining manual techniques and cutting-edge technologies for an immediate and lasting metamorphosis and an incredible new experience.
