Espa At Hôtel Metropole
Treatment & facilities: Voted the 3rd best spa in the Europe by Condé Nast Readers’ Spa Awards 2011 and a member of Leading Spas of the World, the legendary ESPA brand seems to be hard to beat.
ESPA is not just about cosmetics, but state of the art facilities: this sanctuary in Hôtel Metropole has Crystal Stream rooms, a soothing caldarium, stimulating ice fountain and two lifestyle showers that create a refreshing burst of cool mint mist, or tropical rain. To rest mind as well as body there is a candle lit relaxation room where guests can cocoon themselves, or a private sundeck for some natural rays. The 10 treatment rooms are adorned with natural materials – Pallasandra wood, slate and shimmering leather – and the natural fragrance of ESPA candles waft throughout. Two private suites can also be enjoyed.
Signature treatment: ESPA day spa rituals, or ‘journeys’ as they call them, allow guests to lose themselves in another world far removed from the bustle of Monte Carlo. These journeys are a combination of ancient and modern techniques sourced from around the world and are personalized completely to your requirements. The journey isn’t complete without the healthy yet delicious menu created by Joël Robuchon which can be served in the spa restaurant or the outdoor sundeck and swimming pool.
