Bookended by shimmering lakes and looming mountains, Evian Resort (yes, like the bottled water) is a healthy oasis in the heart of Évian-les-Bains, France. The 47-acre property has two hotels (Hôtel Royal and Hôtel Ermitage), three spas, including the globally renowned Evian Thermal Spa, a casino and views over Lake Geneva.

If it’s opulence you crave, head straight to Spa Evian Source at the five-star Hôtel Royal. The spa recently unveiled a collaboration with French skincare brand Biologique Recherche to deliver traditional French beauty to its global guests and the ultimate spa experience.

Taking up nearly 13,000 sq ft, from the moment you walk in to the Belle Epoque-style spa, tranquility sets in. Each room has large windows allowing plenty of natural light and each space was smartly designed in a neutral color palette for complete relaxation. The spa has 24 treatment rooms, a relaxation room, two heated pools, a hydro-circuit, Jacuzzis, sauna, steam room, cold pool and salon that uses Kerastase products.

We suggest trying the Biologique Recherche Second Skin Treatment. The two-hour treatment starts with a personalized skin assessment; your therapist will then create a custom plan using Biologique Recherche’s results-driven products designed to bring firmness back to your skin. Every facial is highly personalized and will differ per individual.

The spa also offers a variety of treatments, from Thai massage to Abhyanga massage, Shiatsu, Chinese Tui Na and Indian body scrub treatments. There are slimming treatments that can be reserved in a three- or five-day plan, which includes personal training, body scrubs, seaweed treatments, low-calorie food menus and slimming massages. If you live part of the year nearby, get a membership to Spa Evian Source so you can access its five-star facilities year-round. Kids are welcome too; in fact, the spa encourages children to start their wellness journey early on.
