Ritz Paris recently introduced the new Ritz Club & Spa, a wellbeing haven offering a bespoke experience with a newly imagined space, signature treatments, and fresh brand partnerships with Biologique Recherche for skincare, David Mallett for haircare, Serge Lutens for makeup and perfume, and Manucurist for nailcare.

Set in the heart of the French capital, this iconic hotel has breathed new life into the spa, enhancing the elegant setting with flowers, which can be found throughout the new design. From lights composed of delicate porcelain flowers to the treatment rooms named after flowers inspired by memorable women associated with the hotel’s history, flowers play a leading role in the spa. The treatment rooms pay homage to some extraordinary women, including Marie-Louise Ritz (Edelweiss), Colette (Iris), Zelda Fitzgerald (Orchid), and Ingrid Bergman (Rose). The treatment room walls also feature hand-painted images of their corresponding flower.

The flower theme can also be found on the treatment menu, with each massage named after a flower and featuring French-made floral oils. The spa offers four exclusive massages:

Iris: rebalancing ($215, 60 minutes; $305, 90 minutes) is a dynamic ritual inspired by Korean relaxation techniques that encourages individuals to breathe deeply, imparting a feeling of lightness. 

Edelweiss: relaxing ($220, 60 minutes; $305, 90 minutes) features a soothing 20-minute facial followed by a relaxing body massage using Hawaiian techniques.

Jasmin: toning ($220, 60 minutes; $305, 90 minutes), inspired by a deep-tissue massage, is ideal for those in need of deep muscle release, physical recovery, and an immediate boost.

Signature Rose Ritual ($420, 1 hour 50 minutes) features an exfoliating body scrub with rose followed by a choice of massage: Iris, Edelweiss, or Jasmine. To conclude, a gentle wrap awakens the senses.

The Ritz Club & Spa also features an impressive pool made of 600,000 mosaic tiles and featuring underwater speakers. Nearby is the Floral Bar, which offers a healthy menu inspired by plants and highlighting the benefits of flowers. The beauty boutique, dedicated to wellbeing, features a selection of leading brands, including Hygee, LA.BR, Baigneur and Ebenholz, Ritz Paris, and more. The intimate space, with its 10 white display alcoves, has a beautiful parquet floor, a richly decorated ceiling featuring classical moldings and delicate porcelain flowers. The space will also be used for pop-ups organized by guest brands throughout the year.

Members of the Ritz Paris Private Club can enjoy daily customized coaching, access to more than 40 fitness classes each week, high-tech sports equipment, and the inviting pool.
