Travelers to Paris seeking to relax amidst the city’s bustle would be wise to make an appointment at the Six Senses rue de Castiglione. The spa, designed by French architect Pierre David, creates an urban sanctuary in the center of the city, near Place Vendrome and Jardin des Tuileries.
Entering Six Senses, one is immediately struck by the two-story garden, which serves as the focal point for the whole reception area, evoking a sense of natural beauty and calm. But as this is an “urban sanctuary,” it is also designed with an emphasis on the culture and beauty of the city of Paris, with the city’s skyline projected across the entire length of the spa.
Taking to one of Six Senses’ two double or four single rooms, guests feel as if they’ve stepped into an expandable Japanese lantern, with their light oak wood and comforting back lighting.
Guests can enjoy a variety of treatments, such as the “Detox” facials and body treatments or “Deep Sleep,” “Breath Easy,” “Clear Mind” and “Jet Lag Recovery” options. All of the treatments are developed around the spa’s SLOW LIFE philosophy, which emphasizes sustainable practices, such as the use of chemical-free products and reducing the carbon footprint (SLOW LIFE also makes a catchy acronym for Sustainable-Local-Organic Wholesome Learning Inspiring Fun Experiences).
Visiting experts in such disciplines as Chi Kung, Reiki, shiatsu and Kinesietheraphy offer opportunities to experience the wealth of well-being treatments available throughout the world. Six Senses has a full calendar of events throughout the year.
For those who would like to enjoy the benefits of the spa at home, Six Senses offers two lines of products for purchase. Essential Oils, Essential Wisdom offers aromatherapy products derived from natural ingredients such as Damask rose water instead of plain water and vitamin-rich plant oils such as jojoba, evening primrose and arctic strawberry seed oil. Organic Beauty from the Sea draws on hand-harvested seaweed to create purifying and invigorating products.
Whether seeking to briefly recharge after an active few days in Paris, or to enjoy a luxurious afternoon of deep relaxation, Six Senses rue de Castiglione provides the ideal escape.
