Get Bathed in White at Le Royal Monceau Luxury Spa in Paris


A temple of well-being and contemporary beauty, Le Royal Monceau, a Raffles Spa in Paris, was a godsend stop on the tail end of my Normandy tour this past September. You’re bathed in all white from the moment you enter its doors. Imagine 1,500 square meters of space under one roof, including a 23-meter infinity pool, the largest ever built in a Paris luxury hotel.

On the same floor are the exclusive treatment rooms, where you can get everything from a pedicure, manicure or body wrap to a facial or more traditional massage. There’s also hammam, laconium room and sauna, a gym and dedicated fitness coaches. What else is cool is that you can access the spa from every floor regardless of where you’re staying in the hotel.

The experience was nothing short of 5 star and for those who travel a lot, you know that a 5 star spa experience in Paris is a notch above what you’d find in New York, Miami or Vegas. My favorite? Beside the fabulous facial that is, I’d have to vote for the incredibly luxurious and serene pool. There were big white day beds on both sides of the pool and there I sat for a couple of hours after my treatment, texting friends, getting email done and reading a fashion magazine while sipping pepperment tea and eating almonds.

Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours in the afternoon before venturing off to some fabulous dinner in Paris. Below is a sample of some of the services.


My Blend (by Clarins) is a unique line of body care products that can be customized and designed for the specific skin-care needs. The personally tailored facial treatments are based on a thorough analysis of each person’s skin to determine its biological age.
