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.
With champagne scrubs, Grecian vibes and exclusive treatments, it’s worth adding the Four Seasons Hotel George V to your European wellness itinerary—who doesn’t want a gold and caviar facial?
