It’s been years in the making, and now the Four Seasons Hotel George V is prepping to open its new spa in Paris. Come July, the palace hotel will show off the highly anticipated spa, complete with glittering 55-foot swimming pool. Four Seasons groupies know that the former spa, an intimate bijou likened to Marie Antoinette’s boudoir, closed in 2016 for a redo. Since then, a pop-up spa designed by artistic director Jeff Leatham was set up on the fourth floor.
Swathed in marble, Le Spa is a bright, contemporary space sprawling over 7,750 square feet. Famous Paris-based designer Pierre-Yves Rochon decorated the spa with Greek, Roman and Turkish-inspired mosaics, while Jeff Leatham’s flower compositions add to the "Wow" factor. There are five treatment rooms and a spa suite for couple’s treatments. Along with the swimming pool, spa highlights include a gym stocked with all the latest fitness equipment, a hair salon, two marble hammams and a vitality pool with a hydro-massage water experience circuit. Nice perk: In the gym, an enormous screen shows an interactive movie about nature, immersing guests in the great outdoors while they work out.
Le Spa has sought to offer a couture-style treatment menu for guests with exclusive offerings designed by industry experts. Signatures include a Kobido traditional Japanese facelift and an Alaena certified-organic anti-aging treatment. The crème de la crème is the Dr. Burgener escape, combining a Chardonnay body scrub, a massage with Champagne oil and a facial harnessing the antioxidant power of gold, Chardonnay and green caviar. Cap off the experience with a glass of champagne and a macaron.
With over 12 years’ experience at Four Seasons Spas, Nathalie Delclos is the Spa Director of Le Spa. Jean-Claude Wietzel is the General Manager of Four Seasons George V. In other news from the Paris palace hotel, the Michelin-starred kitchens announced a powerful sustainability mission earlier this year.
