Fairmont’s Willow Stream Spa Debuts In Monte Carlo

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Now Fairmont guests can watch the F1 races while seated in the comfortable pedicure chairs that overlook the famous hairpin turn of the Grand Prix. Like no other spa in Monaco, and inspired by the magical light and colors of this luxurious Principality, with touches of sparkling sea glass throughout, this newest Willow Stream Spa captures the sea-inspiring energy of the Mediterranean. With specialized treatments like the Monaco Power of the Sea and Reflections of Cyan, this spa is a part of the 45-million-euro refurbishment of the hotel and offers authentic, personalized experiences with a fitness centre and roof deck all located on the sixth and seventh floors of The Fairmont Monte Carlo. For centuries, artists have been inspired by the color and light of this region and upon living or visiting this beautiful region, one can hear daily conversations about the magical colors of the mountains, sunrise, sunset and sea.

Inspired by the Energy and Magic of Monte Carlo:

Drenched in the amazing colors of Monaco, the spa is complete with eight generously-sized treatment rooms and a manicure/pedicure nail spa all awash in the deepest of sea greens and aquamarine to the coolest of sapphire and cyan. Approximately 900 m² of spacious natural light; this is the newest spa destination from the international award-winning spa brand. Designed by the acclaimed architectural firm, Wilson Associates, and a part of the 45-million-euro renovation of the hotel, this light and airy spa includes two couples experience suites with double tubs, double steam showers and overhead rain showers as well as an authentic hamman and experiential showers in the men’s lounge area. The ladies lounge is the perfect place for friends to gather and socialize over healthy bento box lunches while at the spa. The spa also has treatment suites where the perfect solo escape allows guests to design their very own personalized experience like the Monte Carlo Sea Escape in their very own private spa, all alone.

Authentic Personalized Spa Experiences:

A visit to the Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Monte Carlo for a personalized facial and soothing body experience is the ideal way to relax after a day of strolling and shopping Monte-Carlo’s Carré d’Or.

Offering the best energizing spa experiences in Monte Carlo, guests will enjoy treatments like the 90-minute Monte Carlo Select Facial, an aromatic sensory facial experience with skin-silkening benefits; and the detoxifying Monaco Power of the Sea which includes Kerstin Florian International’s thalasso kur and body wrap rich with re-mineralizing sea algae.

The Princess Rose Retreat at Willow Stream is 90-minutes of pure indulgence. The experience begins with a gentle dry brush exfoliation to stimulate the skin and improve circulation, followed by a bath infused with chamomile and rose petals. The experience culminates with a soothing massage and wrap with Rose Geranium and Rose Flower Oil. This experience is pure indulgence, for the skin and the mind.

Also new are Willow Stream’s Aromatherapy Massages from the experts at Aromatherapy Associates. These customized, made-to-order massages are inspired by the colors of Monaco and can help to clear the mind (Reflections of Magenta); uplift the spirits (Reflections of Midnight Blue); induce deep relaxation and a peaceful night’s sleep (Reflections of Cyan); aid in muscle relaxation (Reflections of Royal Purple) as well as help guests breathe more clearly (Reflections of Indigo).
