A regal Paris retreat

Editor's Note: The Spa, Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris is closed for renovations, but the Pop Up Spa by Jeff Leatham is available on the fourth floor of the hotel. 

The Spa, Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris is an oasis in the heart of the 8th arrondissement’s luxury shopping area. Built in the 1920s, the iconic hotel became a member of the Four Seasons family in 1999. The world-class spa was added to the establishment during this time of expansion.

Upon entering the 11-room facility, you immediately feel at ease amid a regal atmosphere reminiscent of Marie Antoinette’s boudoir. Take in a view of the indoor pool and hand-painted fresco of the gardens of Versailles while enjoying pre- and post-treatment spoils such as tea and light snacks, a sauna, relaxation room and a small boutique of beauty products and women’s accessories. Other sparkling amenities to bask in after your Tropical Magnolia massage include a modern fitness room and the aforementioned pool that’s surrounded by lounge chairs and stunning trompe l’oeil imagery. The Paris spa is the luxurious bonus for Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, which is renowned for its tremendous interior design and floral arrangements, superior service and top-notch dining options.
