It’s a magical city that’s made for romance. It has a little bit of everything from excellent food to abundant history, art, culture, nightlife, and if you really want to push the boat out you can find a bicycle and give a little nod to exercise as well.
At the same time as being universally well know for all its inherently important attributes, Paris sometimes suffers from being a little oversold. It wasn’t until the third time we visited the famous city that we really ‘got it’. It was spring and the sun was shining that little bit brighter than it was in London, the daffodils were in full bloom, the Luxembourg gardens were peppered with artists sketching their muses while others were lost in their books, and Chez Paul had a queue out the door and down the street. There might not be much more we can tell you about Paris, but the key to it is in the details, and these little spa gems are the details you need to know.
Famed as the place where the bikini had its first outing, and where luxury skincare brand Clarins began, Hotel Molitor has been the place to see and be seen in Paris since the 1930s. Now under the famed Sofitel brand, known for letting no luxurious stone go unturned, it is a retreat from the urban buzz, with cool sophistication and a touch of historic charm at its core. It’s achingly chic.
Half an hour outside Paris, Relais Spa is close to Disneyland, making it supremely popular with families who want to combine something for the kids with something strictly for parents only. The hotel’s spa is just for adults, so you can feel worlds away from daily life but provide something for everyone at the same time.
With many suites enjoying views of the Eiffel Tower, if anywhere was going to scream ‘Paris’ and ‘romance’ at the same time, it’s L’Hotel Du Collectionneur. A contemporary hotel where the décor references the work of some of the most famous designers of the Art Deco period, it has a mere 41 bedrooms and gold leaf fluting, intimate alcoves, and crystal chandeliers throughout. Throw away any plans for doing things in moderation, crack out the champagne and do Paris in style!
