Friday 11, February 2011
For the first time, Four Seasons Hotel George V Spa ranked Best Hotel Spa in Europe, Asia Minor and Russia by the UK edition of Condé Nast Traveller.
The Spa received a 95.44 ranking in the 9th annual readers' poll, which is published in the March edition of the magazine.
The magazine's readers are invited to vote for their favourite spa hotels using the following criteria: ambience/decor, service, location, and value. The results are then analysed by an outside auditing firm to ensure complete impartiality.
Decorated in the style of Marie Antoinette’s boudoir by interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel George V is impressive with its classic French style and its constantly evolving treatment menu.
“Spa Culture has gained significant importance over the last few years. It all started with a simple fitness activity and evolved into a sanctuary of well being and dedication to beauty. Our clients seek a moment of relaxation. But moreover they want to see results. We made the conscious decision not to limit ourselves to one brand, giving us a great range of treatment options in line with the latest innovations,” says Christopher Norton, regional vice president, general manager of the Hotel and leader for spa development of Four Seasons worldwide.
In addition to Carita and Sodashi products, the Spa introduced L Raphael from Switzerland, renowned for its investment in cellular development research. Guests at the Spa can experience the ultimate skin care in non invasive anti-aging treatments. Another addition available at the Spa is the hair extensions thanks to the brand Great Lengths and the expertise of two in-house hair dressers.
The Spa offers seven treatment rooms decorated with Toile de Jouy. Two rooms are entirely set up as hair salons while two others are dedicated to manicure and pedicure. The Spa also hosts a fitness centre with a personal trainer and an indoor swimming pool surrounded by Trompe-l’Oeil paintings of the Versailles gardens. The Spa menu brings out a large selection of facials, body treatments, massages, body wraps. All those treatments are also offered to outside guests who can enjoy prompt or extensive relaxation moments. Only the pool and the fitness centre remain exclusively dedicated to Hotel guests.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
