Let’s try a little experiment. Wherever you are right now, we want you to think of an image, one that symbolizes peace, majesty and calm. We don’t need to be psychics to know that every single person reading this article has a very different image of serenity, but we’re ready to go out on a limb and say that some of you are thinking of snow capped mountains, vast expanses of white plains, and the power and gentleness of a cold mountain breeze. If you’re one of those then today’s post might be of particular interest to you.
In October 2013 the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues opened a spa that took the power of the Mont Blanc landscape and put it in the soothing experience that Four Seasons spa aficionados have come to love. Whether you decide to become a regular or treat yourself to a one-off, the Spa Mont Blanc is designed to leave a lasting and powerful impression on your body and soul and, if you’re new to holistic spa treatment, you just might file this in your memory bank alongside your first kiss or epic concert…. yeah it’s that good.
The material used in the Spa’s design is based on the alpine landscape and includes mountain rocks, native woods and Marmara marble, which all merge seamlessly with the surroundings to create a private oasis within all the majesty of the Alps.
The design choice, so close to nature and so inherently Swiss, does such a good job of setting the tone and atmosphere that it is an integral part of the treatment, and the expert touch of the masseurs is made that much better by it.
Other tasteful inclusions are the customized reading area by the guys from ultimate library, and fire places and artwork that complete that “shelter from the world” feel for the guests to rest every bit of their tired being and, in terms of outside world integration, the cherry on the cake is definitely the infinity edge pool which gives onto the sprawling vistas of Geneva
The Spa Mont Blanc is an ambitious project set on becoming the best Spa experience in Switzerland. It’s a pretty bold claim, but give it a try and find out why we think it might achieve just that.
