The Arc de Triomphe, the Lido, the Champs-Élysées, Avenue George V, Fouquet's… The setting is sumptuous and synonymous with French luxury. The magic continues one floor lower, in the Spa Diane Barrière, inaugurated at the same time as the hotel in November 2006. A charming swimming pool, adorned with moldings, master paintings, armchairs (no deckchairs here ), a fireplace and even a bookcase serve as a backdrop to the decor. " It is the only swimming pool on the Champs-Élysées, underlines Mélina Pourcel, the Spa director. We wanted to reproduce the intimate atmosphere of a beautiful Parisian apartment, so that our customers feel at home. »

After having completed a detailed questionnaire, which focuses in particular on the choice of massage (hands and forearms, feet or scalp) during the mask break or on background music (jazzy lounge, world music, piano, etc. ), Marie will accompany you in the cabin. On the program, a journey into the clouds with one of the Spa's signature rituals: “the legends treatment”. Inspired by the very fashionable Japanese Kobido and embellished with a delicious massage of the face and upper body, this treatment protocol associated with the Kos brand - which manufactures its products on ... the Champs-Élysées - has a plumping and lifting effect on the skin, in addition to being extremely relaxing. Or how to combine business with pleasure ...

Barely embarked, we take off immediately thanks to a subtle smoothing and kneading of the face which will relax the muscles. Your skin is then diagnosed using a magnifying lamp, then cleansed with an oil based on camellia and jojoba, 100% natural like all Kos products. You reach cruising altitude during a soothing chamomile scrub composed in particular of brown sugar with exfoliating effects and vitamin F from Safflower oil. The vapozone then hydrates the epidermis and facilitates the entry of active ingredients into the skin.

Between two divine neck and shoulder massages - which hardly makes you want to come back to earth - a lotion based on rose floral water purifies and soothes your skin. A delectable caress of the face makes you flirt with seventh heaven, before kneading and pounding maneuvers stimulate your blood circulation and help to brighten and smooth your features. The journey almost comes to an end with a break from a hibiscus mask, which reduces muscle contractions and smoothes your skin a little more. During the solidification phase of about ten minutes, a scalp massage brings you a last shiver.

The landing is done gently, in the form of a toning floral water, then a cream and a serum specially adapted to your skin type. This voluptuous 80-minute odyssey has gone by at the speed of light. Perhaps this is the reason why your face seems so radiant when you examine the mirror… At the reception, a bowl of dried fruits and a glass of natural fruit juice await you, just to rest your feet gently on Earth.

You can extend the stroll in this 750 m² space which houses an aquatic course, two hammams (women and men) and a sauna, polish your form in the fitness area in the company of Jean-Pierre Clémenceau, the coach of the stars, enjoy the latest Hydrojet massage bed (a mattress containing lukewarm water associated with a chromotherapy, aromatherapy and music therapy program) or let yourself be transported by the fairy fingers of Caty Sissoko, the French massage champion. The Spa Diane Barrière at Fouquet's: excellence at the service of your well-being.
