Paris is the city of romance, traditional architectural beauty, a blend of culture and the Four Seasons George V Spa! The George V Spa's a lover's paradise in the midst of city lights and heavy shopping bags; it is a vacation from your vacation. Offering the serenity of a tranquil environment perfectly blended to intrigue all of your senses through relaxation and rejuvenation.
While most guests' first visit to the George V Spa comes while staying at the adjoining Four Seasons George V Spa, most keep the spa's number close at hand for those last minute lay-over's in Paris that require a serious pamper session to de-stress. Within the walls of this Parisian paradise you will find many options to suit your needs. If you prefer to jog off your jet lag, or sweat out 'stuck in traffic frustrations', this spa has just the thing, housing a quiet yet heart pumping fitness area with thirteen cardio-vascular machines and weight stations. Or if you prefer the challenge of a work out from a professional trainer, a simplistic yoga session or an hour of deep stretching these are available upon request.
The cardio room may not be for everyone, but if you look a little further you will find a room that is! In the most decadent room at the George V Spa you will find an indoor pool set amongst perfect lighting and detail driven decor to allure the mind's eye in a journey to another place. This setting is a perfect environment for water exercise's or to unwind after a long day with a simple swim. Raised up from the pool sitting on a pedestal of its own, you will find the Jacuzzi where you can feel the tension in your muscles dissolve against the jets while getting lost in the mural of the sky above you.
After working up a sweat, towel off and find yourself in the hands of a professional masseuse. These specialists's are trained from the renowned French traditions to fight cellulite to the Tibetan techniques of relaxation. Or spice up a traditional deep tissue massage, lymphatic drainage or reflexology session with a mixture of essential oils and aroma therapy. If you are planning a pamper session for two, you should request the 'Romance Fever' couples package. This package offers a VIP room and VIP treatment with massage tables set up next to each other to share in the experience of a one hour full body massage close to that special some one and the massages are followed up with a rejuvenating facial. When all treatments are finished, you are left to enjoy the privacy of your own room complete with a steam room, sauna and private shower. This room is perfectly lit with the twinkling lights of candles lining the walls around your very own Jacuzzi for two, the aroma of fresh roses and rose petals spread out to the background sound of relaxing music set to complete the ambiance.
The George V Spa is not only noted for massage and body treatments of seaweed wraps, sunless tanning and body scrubs; they offer a wide assortment of plush pamper treatments to ensure all your requests are met. If you are planning a night on the town or just covering the basics you will find it here at the George V with a team ready to accommodate your every need. A professional team of beauticians offers an assortment of cell repair with collagen sheets, intense moisturizing facials, lifting treatments and much more. If it be an afternoon manicure, pedicure or waxing, they have it! If you feel you deserve to be pampered like the beauty queen you are then take advantage of the stress free environment the beauticians offer while doing your makeup and hair for a daylight touch or an evening out. If you decide to enjoy the spa as a couple you can enjoy a romantic conversation for two in the plush beds located in the relaxation room. Or if you are waiting for your other to finish up, it is the perfect place to lie down and exhale while enjoying your relaxed state of euphoria.
If all of this pampering has worked up an appetite just ask the George V staff to show you the way to their sitting area where you can order a light lunch or enjoy fresh juice from the juice bar to ensure your appetite is satisfied before you head back out to the Champs Elysees for more shopping!
