At Compare Retreats, we love nothing better than a new spa—which is why the summer opening of Four Seasons Hotel George V’s new 7,750-square-foot Le Spa in Paris has us checking our schedules for our next European escape.
The spa—which includes a 17-metre lap pool, vitality pool with hydro-massage jets, cutting-edge fitness room, a stylish hair salon, a luxury hammam, and single and couples’ treatment rooms—focuses on results-driven treatments, customised to each individual client.
Spa Director of Le Spa Nathalie Delclos, with 12 years’ experience of Four Seasons Spas, says of the new wellness space: “Focusing on results-orientated, non-invasive, manual skincare techniques has been key in my approach to offering our guests the very best in unique, made-to-measure, innovative skincare solutions.”
The spa features expert beauty and skin care treatments from around the world: Kobido, a rare traditional Japanese facelift created by Dr Shogo Mochizuki; an organic Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment, Breath of Life by Alaena, by Dr Sylvie Peres from France which rejuvenates cells for anti-aging; and anti-aging Swiss Perfection therapies. A signature treatment by Dr Pauline Burgener—the George V Escape—was created exclusively for the spa. The customised antioxidant treatment uses a Chardonnay body scrub, a massage with Champagne oil, and a facial harnessing the antioxidant power of gold, Chardonnay and green caviar; finished with a Four Seasons Hotel George V macaron and a glass of Champagne, this wellness experience is distinctly Parisian.
“We are delighted to introduce Le Spa, a contemporary space of style and serenity in the heart of the city. A place where Parisian elegance meets caring Four Seasons service, delivered by our team of passionate therapists who are dedicated to making you look and feel your best,” says Jean- Claude Wietzel, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris.
Created by renowned Parisian interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, the space takes inspiration from ancient Greek, Roman and Turkish spa traditions and fuses the styles with modern elegance in a light grey colour palette. “We meticulously selected materials, furniture and pieces of art that embody the spirit codes and harmony of the hotel, both classic and resolutely contemporary,” comments Rochon.
