The Riviera lifestyle doesn’t get more luxurious than this…
Riviera life is tough. After a gruelling breakfast of champagne and croissants, you are faced with your first major decision of the day; should you lie on the beach and work on your tan, or take the yacht out for a spin instead?
So it’s just as well that the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc is able to offer some serious relaxation at its luxury in-house spa.
With exclusive facial and body treatments by Sisley, massages by Bamford, and alternative therapies by some of the world’s top spa professionals, it’s easy to see why the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc’s spa is so popular among supermodels and movie stars alike.
The week before the Cannes Film Festival, sharpen your look with a Phyto-Aromatic Sisleÿa Facial, which includes 20 minutes of ‘muscular remodelling’ to leave your skin looking instantly younger and brighter, even after a night of cocktails on P Diddy’s boat.
If all that partying has left you feeling exhausted, book yourself in for a Bamford Signature Massage in one of the resort’s private cabanas – between the cool sea breeze and the soothing mixture of essential oils, you will feel on top of the world by the time your massage is over.
Then towards the end of the summer season, make up for months of brie and baguettes with an Absolute Slimming Phyto-Aromatic Body Treatment, which promises to remove even the most stubborn fatty deposits.
Men are well catered for as well at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc & Spa; after all, Clooney doesn’t just wake up looking like that. Treat yourself to a 75-minute Eden for Men massage by Bamford – a full back exfoliation and body polish, followed by a deep tissue massage and head massage using fresh and minty essential oils.
All of Sisley’s facials can also be adapted for male skin, and there is a separate gentlemen’s grooming list, which includes a luxury barber’s ritual, goatee shaping, and temples colouring, to name just a few.
This is a spa that really knows its clientele, and is committed to offering nothing but the best. Even the steam rooms look like something from the future. Colour, scent and sound therapies are used to create your perfect ambiance, and a private outdoor courtyard is the perfect place to relax between sessions.
Book far in advance and break out the platinum credit cards, then live the super-luxe lifestyle that the Riviera does so well.
