U Spa Barrière Shiseido

Serenity along the Champs-Élysées
When you need a respite from the flurry of tourists and locals on the Champs-Élysées, duck into Hôtel Le Fouquet's Paris’ subterranean U Spa Barrière Shiseido, 8,600 square feet of modern elegance. After exiting the elevator, the first thing you see is the Mediterranean-blue swimming pool, which instantly creates a sense of serenity.

You’ll be in such a state of bliss when you reemerge from the spa that the crowds on the Champs-Élysées won’t faze you.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The 8th arrondissement spa selected the beloved Japanese cosmetic and skin-care line Shiseido for its treatment partner.

The Facilities
  • At 50 by 20 feet, the pool is the centerpiece of the spa and one of the largest indoor pools in Paris. The surrounding area is covered in rich, warm wood and adorned with golden drapes that provide privacy.
  • In addition, just off the main pool is an aqua training circuit. Round mirrors mimicking the look of a ship’s portholes line the walls, while slate floors, a red ceiling and ambient lighting give an impression of an elegant yacht on a calm sea.
  • A large relaxation area adjoining the pool area is a place to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, along with a selection of healthy snacks.
  • The Paris spa’s changing rooms are outfitted with electronic-coded lockers, showers, Fouquet’s-branded toiletries, towels, slippers and robes.
  • Along with the modern fitness center, sauna and separate steam rooms, there are also seven treatment rooms, one of which is a balneotherapy booth for mineral springs services.
