3 Parisian Spas that Will Relax Your Body–And Blow Your Mind

Paris has a reputation of elegance, refinement, and extravagance. It should come as no surprise, then, that the French capital is full of incredible spas that take the idea of self pampering to a whole new level. Whether spa treatments are a part of your routine at home or not, you’ll most definitely want to splurge on a facial, massage, or body treatment while vacationing in Paris. And while you’ll find dozens of appealing options, these 3 spas are known as being the crème de la crème in an undeniably indulgent city.

Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris

Located just off the Champs-Elysées, the Four Seasons Hotel George V is considered one of the city’s best hotels and, naturally, is home to one of its finest spas as well. Combat any fatigue you’re feeling after a day of traveling from the States with the Jet Lag Recovery Treatment, which includes body brushing, a purifying mask, and a facial. Drawing on the history of the region, the spa also offers “A Stroll Through Versailles,” a body scrub, massage, and facial package inspired by Marie Antoinette. Guests are encouraged to take advantage of the saunas, steam rooms, and lounge with complimentary refreshments.

Spa Le Bristol by La Prairie

The prestigious Le Bristol Hotel is home to a spa by the same name which features products from renowned anti-aging pioneer La Prairie. A Russian Room, Turkish bath, saunas, spas, and 8 treatment rooms are spread across 3 floors, giving guests an appreciated sense of privacy during their visit. With its onsite child care center, Spa Le Bristol is ideal for parents who could use a few hours of pampering on their own. Rooms feature private terraces where you can enjoy a glass of champagne or a light meal after your treatment.

The Peninsula Spa

Though everything they offer at The Peninsula Spa sounds tantalizing, their 4-hour combo packages are prime fodder for daydreaming between now and your Parisian vacation. The “Half-Day Spa Journey” starts with a salt and oil body scrub, which is followed by a deep muscle massage, foot massage, and facial. The “Heaven and Earth” offering includes a full-body exfoliating treatment, Balinese massage, eye treatment, foot massage, and more. You won’t want it to end–and with access to a sauna, ice fountain, spa shower, and more, there’s no reason it shouldn’t keep going for at least a few hours after your scheduled session.

Be sure to arrive early for your appointment in order to get the most out of your spa experience. In addition to out-of-this-world treatments, there are many extra perks to visiting these luxury spas. You may be invited to drink some tea or sparkling water in a relaxation room, engage in a private consultation with a skincare expert, detox your system in a sauna, or enjoy other onsite amenities. To prepare yourself for your Parisian holiday, take some time to brush up on your French skills. We invite you to make an enquiry to learn more about our online, private, and small group lessons.
