Paris hotel Le Meurice recently renovated its spa with the help of designer Charles Jouffre. The bright space, which measures about 3,780 square feet, boasts three treatment rooms (one of which can accommodate two people simultaneously), a couple of rest lounges, space for manicures and makeup sessions, an area for pedicures, hammams, a sauna, fitness room (available to hotel guests and visitors with a monthly pass) and terrace. A fountain made of ice is a striking visual detail in the spa tinged in bronze, green and beige hues. Brands used here include Valmont, By Terry and OPI. Since its revamp, some offers have been added to the spa’s menu, including the Bulle Émotionnelle Treatment, a facial with a focus on the eye area that lasts for one hour and costs 150 euros, or $199.60 at current exchange. There’s also a new body-slimming treatment. Other possibilities for some rest and relaxation include the hour-long Hydration Ritual, which is 140 euros, or $186.30; the half-hour Leg Toning Treatment for 90 euros, or $119.75, and the hour-long Relaxing Massage with Essential Oils for 150 euros, or $199.60. With easy access from the spa or from 8 Rue de Castiglione is a 277-square-foot Valmont boutique.

Le Meurice, 228 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris. Tel.: +33-1-44-58-10-10. For non-hotel guests, the spa is open daily 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
