There is no better spa in the world than the unparalleled Thermes Marins Spa in Monte-Carlo. A complex dedicated to beauty and wellness, the spa sits directly on the Mediterranean Sea overlooking the Monte-Carlo Yacht Club. It houses floor after floor of, shall we say, small bits of heaven wrapped in a stunning and newly renovated glass exterior? There is the hair salon, the exercise facilities, the steam baths, saunas, indoor pool, outdoor pool, treatment rooms, laser and cellulite-reduction rooms, boutique and fabulous restaurant, L’Hirondelle. This is a place you come not for a day, but for a week to unwind and rejuvenate every part of yourself.
If ever there was a place where one could simply unravel and hunker-down into the nitty-gritty of what it takes to be your personal best, it’s the Thermes Marins. After having the most delicious lunch of Mediterranean cuisine on the terrace of L’Hirondelle, it’s essential to plan and plot your day to unfold in a way that keeps your beauty flow going and maximizes your time in the space.
Start with an anti-cellulite salt bath which lasts for 30 minutes and uses ultrasonic frequency and strong water pressure in targeted areas of your body to help stimulate your lymphatic system. You can move-on to a salt scrub and body masque made from coffee and chocolate, the caffeine in both with help your skin detox and tighten – adding the perfect glow. You can follow all of this with a 90-minute massage to knead-out all of your kinks and help heal your soar muscles.
After your body has been brought back to life, move-on to the beauty salon for the perfect cut and color – male or female – where you can work with the well-trained stylists on something that will help you make a grand entrance at the party you have later that evening. Simply put, you cannot get better than this spa. That task is nearly impossible in the region, and nearly impossible on the entire Mediterranean seaboard.
