Cannes welcomed a new luxury hotel last year, and it’s knocked the socks off the glitterati who flock to the film festival every year. (The rooftop pool is a hot scene.) Just in time for the French Riviera's action-packed summer season, the Five Hotel has opened the Spa by Cinq Mondes- a luxe beauty and spa brand that takes inspiration from all corners of the globe. Created by Jean Louis Poiroux, the spa rituals are derived from traditional well-being treatments from the cultures of five continents. (Here’s an in-depth review of our experience at the Cinq Mondes Spa next to the Radisson Blu Marseille.)
Designed with a contemporary aesthetic, the new spa encompasses 820 square feet and has four treatment rooms, two saunas, a hammam, a relaxation room, and a state-of-the-art gym. For those looking to get beach-body ready, hard-core bootcamps are available. Recommended: the four-hour signature treatment called “Well-being and Serenity Ritual”- which is a great introduction into the Cinq Mondes world. The signature includes the Turkish hammam, Indian spice scrub, traditional oriental massage, Japanese “KO BI DO” face and body massage and concludes with lunch at Five Hotel & Spa’s Sea Sens rooftop restaurant that has menus created by (Michelin-starred brothers Jacques and Laurent Pourcel devised the menus).
