The Spa at Château Élan

A French-inspired North Georgia spa
The Spa at Château Élan makes it easy for you to forget all about the stress-filled workweek. Located behind the main hotel at Château Élan, and easily accessible by golf cart or via a scenic stroll, a peaceful oasis awaits. After a recent renovation, which was completed in 2012, the spa now features warm tones of cream, light blue and brown throughout its 35,000-square-foot, three-level French-estate-inspired facility. You will find the cushy armchairs in the coed spa waiting room and the multicolored glass tiles placed in the spa suites both relaxing and refined.

During your stay, you will be encouraged to walk around in a plush robe and sandals — don’t be surprised if you see couples enjoying a gourmet meal (try the seared crab cakes or the baby mixed greens with salmon) at the spa’s restaurant Fleur-de-Lis.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Whether you’re checking in for a service in one of the 35 treatment rooms or for a weekend of pampering in one of the 14 spa suites, there are several amenities to keep you feeling at ease and rejuvenated.
  • Little touches around the facility, such as the glass fountain display or the 17th-century French wood armoire (the only original pre-renovation piece left in the spa), serve as a reminder of the thoughtfulness that co-founder Nancy Panoz took into consideration when placing each accouterment in its respective area.
  • You’ll also find the aromatic blend of lavender, geranium and lemongrass wafting in the hallways quite pleasing to the senses.
  • The elegant spa's style is reminiscent of a French estate. Expect to see stately lamps, wood flooring, plush couches, eclectic armchairs, candles and cushioned boxed ottomans.
  • Upon arrival, you will notice that the check-in desk is made with several pieces of crushed wine bottles (a tribute to the property’s winery) — a stunning visual wonder.

The Facilities
  • For quiet time, step into the relaxation room and take a nap on one of the seven chaise lounge chairs outfitted with comfy accent pillows and a curtain to provide a sense of privacy.
  • The Atlanta spa also comes with a small gym, should you want to work out (there are two treadmills, one elliptical machine and one bike) or take classes like yoga flow.
