The Finest Ski and Spa Destination….

Courchevel is known as the destination for the really serious skier. The arena for those who come to play hard and challenge themselves on the more than 26,000 acres of skiable terrain, 320 downhill trails, or who wish to indulge in a bit of heli-skiing. And if you already feel sore just reading about such statistics and activities, then there is good news on the horizon in that the resort has just opened two new five-star spas designed to soothe you both body and soul after a day on the slopes.

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Aman Le Melezin is introducing a range of new, cutting edge facilities including a new holistic spa. This wellness hub is a 8,255-square-foot haven that features a hydro-therapy area incorporating experiential showers, hot and cold pools, a relaxation lounge, a sauna, a 45-foot lap pool set beneath vaulted ceilings, and a hammam where guests can enjoy Turkish-style treatments like salt scrubs and warming massages.

Add into that five treatment rooms where a range of massages and procedures based around heat and moisture designed to counteract the effects of days spent out in the wind and cold are available, as well as therapies to help with muscle recovery, soreness and better circulation and you have everything the winter sportsperson needs.

The pinnacle of the treatment options is the indulgent Mélézin Signature Spa Journey which offers a range of services, including dry brushing to boost circulation, a tension-melting hot stone massage, and a soothing facial that nourishes skin affected by the punishing Alpine winter.

Also in on the act is Oetker Collection’s legendary L’Apogée Courchevel whose Spa L’Apogée by La Prairie has welcomed the return of the luxurious, clinical Swiss La Prairie line. A personal consultation with a La Prairie expert is followed by a series of therapies based around the line’s signature Cellular Complex products which renew skin and help combat signs of ageing. This is followed by some relaxing time in the steam hamman, the embrace of a heated pool or some time in the restorative salt-crystal sauna. Never before has there been such a wonderful combination featuring the best of both worlds.
