A luxe, scent-focused spa in Geneva
5 Treatment Rooms
Located on the banks of Lake Geneva inside Le Richemond Genève, Dorchester Collection, Le Spa by Sisley is luxurious retreat hidden away below the iconic hotel. Le Richemond is one of the ultra-luxe Dorchester Collection properties and Sisley is a prestigious French beauty brand — their collaboration on this sleek, splendid spa is a fitting partnership.
A brief history of the renowned beauty brand: When Sisley was created by Hubert d’Ornano in 1976, aromatherapy was a virtually unknown practice. Then, the use of active plant ingredients and essential oils to create beauty products was a highly innovative concept. Now Sisley is a cosmetic leader in the use of plants and scents as main active ingredients.
While entering Le Spa by Sisley, you are immediately put at ease with a relaxing atmosphere within the intimate facilities. Le Spa features five traditional treatment rooms, including a couples room that can be booked for special treatments and a space designed specifically for Thai massages (performed by a professional Thai therapist). Take advantage of the relaxation room, sauna and steam rooms, and the high-end fitness studio located adjacent to the spa.
All the products used at the Geneva spa are by Sisley, so you get a fully immersive Sisley experience when booking a facial, massage or body treatment. Face and body services are based on the science of relaxing body and mind through the use of fragrance.
The Phyto-Aromatic Facials are popular with guests all round the world. Le Spa offers seven different iterations to address various skin types, including oily skin, dry and sensitive skin, aging skin, dull skin and even male-specific skin issues. Each last 60 minutes. Phyto-Aromatic body treatments ran the gamut, too, and include scrubs, energizing massages, masks and lymphatic drainage — all available for 60 to 90 minutes. The Sisley Bodycare Duo is one part invigorating body scrub and one part energizing massage designed to hydrate skin and balance your body’s energy. Decadent massages include reflexology, muscular, deep tissue, plus a one performed with four hands, which includes 20 minutes of private hammam time. That Thai massage? It’s carried out by a therapist’s feet for an ultra-strong rubdown that reaches your deep tissue.
