Designed by Dr Olivier Courtin-Clarins, Spa My Blend by Clarins provides a range of high-tech treatments that can be tailored to the specific skin-care needs of an individual, so it truly is your blend. Relax completely in its grand 16,000 sq ft of space and take a dip in the 75-ft swimming pool, the longest in any Parisian hotel.

Inside the palatial Le Royal Monceau, Spa My Blend by Clarins encompasses seven treatment rooms, watsu pool, hammam, laconium room, ice fountain and sauna. The ‘ladies and gentlemen’ relaxation rooms offer shower experiences which can be adapted to your liking with choices of light, music and essential oils. Work up a sweat with a body coach in four large fitness rooms dedicated to Thai boxing, Pilates and yoga using state-of-the-art Technogym and Kinesis equipment.

Known for its bespoke facial treatments, the spa at Le Royal Monceau takes guests through an in-depth skin analysis to determine the biological age of the skin, followed by personalized treatments and finally a Clarins makeup session. To ensure your skin stays radiant for days, each guest receives a two-week supply of personalized skin care products, including a regimen of ‘My Blend Day and Night’ essentials with emergency boosters.

Newly unveiled this winter season, try the My Royal Cocooning treatment, featuring a one-hour yoga lesson as well as a massage, one-hour Clarins body treatment or 30-minute Clarins facial. Indulge post-treatment with a hot beverage and decadent pastry by Pierre Hermé at Bar Long, included with the spa package.

The height of luxury — and privacy — is found in the 3,770-sq-ft Raffles Presidential Suite. Guests of the sumptuous three-bedroom suite receive unlimited access to Spa My Blend by Clarins, including the pool, fitness facilities, sauna and laconium. Through a private entrance with its own elevator, the suite features a spacious living room with working desk, three bathrooms with walk-in shower and claw-foot tub, boudoir, sitting room, fully equipped kitchen, fitness space and dining area. Hand-crafted furniture by Philippe Starck, custom linens and French artwork adorn the lavish accommodation, which you can be whisked away to from the airport with complimentary round-trip transfer.
