Spa Luxe: The Ritz Club Paris is Calling...

The Ritz Paris has once again opened its glorious doors after a very thorough $450 million renovation. The esteemed hotel is once again accepting reservations. The rooms are stunning, without question, but it's the world's only CHANEL day spa on-site that has fan girls (self included) buzzing and pondering a trip to Paris. An iconic luxury hotel and a one-of-a-kind spa experience wrapped up in one glistening shiny new black & white bow? This is too good to resist. Treatments in the sumptuous chinoiserie-and-lacquer­ space remind longtime admirers of Coco’s own apartment (also a must-see for those of you headed to the Ritz).

Befitting CHANEL, each spa experience is tailor-made to the client's personal needs and includes glow-inducing techniques specifically designed for the Ritz Club Spa. Insiders say the "Grand Soin" facial is the "ne plus ultra" of CHANEL skin care. The treatment is beloved for its smoothing, firming, and beauty-boosting benefits and the facial itself lasts an indulgent two to three hours.

Professional makeup application (the brand's own, of course) is offered to spa clientele après treatment so you'll have an expert ensuring your look possesses that coveted French girl je ne sais quoi. And don't bother struggling to achieve that elegantly undone chignon hair, Parisian super stylist David Mallett work his magic on your mane. 

I don't know the current state of your personal beauty ambitions, but an indulgent signature spa treatment followed by a lengthy dip in that glistening pool before falling blissfully asleep in a suite at the Ritz Paris is the epitome of Parisian pampered paradise. If you too share visions of having your face and body lovingly buffed and polished to perfection by black & white clad French aestheticians, I suggest a trip to the Ritz Club Paris. It's clearly the chic thing to do.
