At the 112, Faubourg Saint-Honoré, the Bristol Paris dedicates 3 floors to its spa. Open on an interior garden, with a very Parisian style, it lets you bathe in natural daylight. On the 6th floor, where you can find the pool, a view on Parisian roofs completes the welfare offer.
For high-quality face-treatments, the palace associated with the brand La Prairie (about 250€ for 80 minutes). For the body, the spa broadens its offer to rituals inspired by Russian Banïyas. The Bristol also provides make-up sessions with By Terry, a brand created by Terry de Gunzburg, former make-up design manager at Yves Saint-Laurent.
If you are looking for original massages-treatments, you may be tempted by the “Swiss Bliss» and its caviar body treatment for a complete state of relaxation (450euros for 3 hours). And to fight against the effects of time difference, there is nothing like the treatment “Pressure Relief” that uses advanced methods of reflexology (240 euros for 80 minutes). As for more people in a hurry, they can choose the “Beauty Express Le Bristol” treatment which includes a scalp massage (150 euros for 50 minutes).
You wish for even more “very Parisian” attentions? You should choose among offers such as “Midnight in Paris” (baths, hammams, massages, La Prairie treatments, glasses of Champagne) or “So Parisian” (exfoliation, La Prairie treatments, manicure, pedicure, make-up, Champagne and macaroons). These comprehensive packages (lasting at least 4 hours) cost 750 euros.
What is a little white rabbit doing in such an universe? Hippolyte, the “mascot” of the spa, invites children from 4 to 12 in a game area. A service rarely seen in Paris, which allows parents to benefit from a relaxing time, while keeping their children close to them.
