The art of well-being

Le Negresco writes a new chapter in its history with the opening of its long-anticipated spa in January. 

An elegant and innovative haven in which art provides a subtle backdrop for well-being experiences.

N Le Spa invites you on a sensory journey for body and soul. A haven of contemplation, discovery, immersion… Sculptures and works of art from the hotel’s collection are on display, punctuating the spaces, a blend of rich heritage and resolutely modern aesthetics. “Heritage means understanding the setting, its soul and its spirit, to ensure the project has meaning and contributes to the hotel’s unique identity,” stresses interior architect Jean-Philippe Nuel, who is responsible for the design. This sanctuary, dedicated to well-being, was conceived in collaboration with Patrick Saussay, an expert in creating distinctive spas.

Altogether, an indoor area of 700m2 enhanced by the mastery of skilled craftsmen: Carrara and Marquina marble, porcelain stoneware, oak parquet flooring, designer fabrics… ennoble the décor with a boudoir, barber and seven treatment rooms. The private 100m² Ecrin Spa offers exclusive experiences: treatments for two, a sensory bath, hammam, sauna and gastronomic culinary compositions for you to try. Savour Michelin-starred chef Virginie Basselot’s creations and herbal teas in the relaxation area. Before luxuriating in the swimming pool bathed in natural light. Yoga on the pool surround also becomes immersive as digital art works symbiotically with sound and movement.

Relax in the treatment rooms with à la carte protocols featuring precious natural active ingredients from partner brands: better ageing, face, and body treatments by Olivier Claire or Vinésime. Maison Codage, renowned for its skin diagnostics, offers made-to-measure treatments and serums in the boudoir and barber shop, while CHO Nature sets the ball rolling with its favourite guest brands. Finally, N Le Spa has selected fragrances from Maison Godet in Saint-Paul-de-Vence and the Le Rouge Français make-up collection with organic and vegan pigments.
