The retro-chic hotel’s recently completed renovation makes it a must-visit in and of itself. For health-seekers, LUX* Grand Gaube hits a sweet spot. First stop—the bright and airy spa with its minimalist design and warm lighting that screams zen. Here, pampering is taken to a whole new level with our range of LUX* Me products (their sleek design matches the spa), the Kerastase flagship salon, the fabulous Essie nail bar, and the Murdock Barber Shop, where men can get a trim by a barber from London. Sun intake and one too many sips of champagne can take a toll on your skin, so you’ll want to book that bespoke Carita facial.

The intimate, state-of-the-art gym is a hit. The ARTIS Technogym treadmills, ellipticals, and machines have HD screens with Youtube, Skype, television, TED talks, and many other channels. If you’d like advice or tips, speak to our Wellness Concierge (he’ll likely recommend our outdoors calisthenic workouts, boot camp circuits, tennis, Padel Tennis, yoga, meditation or a bike ride.)

Gear up for transformation as once you’ve worked up a sweat, pop by the hammam or sauna, take the plunge (quite literally) in the ice-cold plunge pool, and dry off on one of the canopy sunbeds.
