Hôtel du Rond Point des Champs-Élysées
10 Rue de Ponthieu, Champs-Elysées
This elegantly restored hotel is a mere five minutes from Paris’s center of gravity, the Champs-Élysées, which really means it’s five minutes from everything. The first thing to note is that there is an actual hammam in the basement. After a long day of sightseeing, a few laps in the pool followed by a steam is a healing balm for exhausted feet and sore muscles. Aesthetically, the Art Deco influence is quietly done and hidden in the details, like the lamps, the restrained use of marble (and the not-so-restrained use of stripes to beautiful results), pretty velvet upholstery, even the occasional in-room porthole. Unbeatable location aside, the attentive staff and excellent service catapult this new hotel to the top of the short list of excellent places to stay. The adorably small hotel bar and the sexy dining room make leaving that much harder.
Les Bains de Léa
62 Rue Pierre Charron, Champs-Élysées, Paris
This is Paris’s largest day spa—and the ultimate place to spend an entire day resting and relaxing. Booking two treatments gets you all-day access to the indoor pool, sauna, hammam, juice bar, and the especially deluxe sushi bar, along with the coziest robe and slippers ever. The treatments focus on traditional Balinese beauty rituals, and the Five Flowers Ritual, which combines the essences of five tropical flowers to nurture skin, is especially delightful.
32 Av. des Champs-Élysées, Paris
The company’s three-story flagship spa is set in a quiet courtyard off the Champs-Élysées, and no two treatments are alike. Instead, skin is meticulously examined with the Skin Instant Lab, which measures moisture, elasticity, pigmentation, and oil production. Next you’re ushered into a gorgeous, all-white treatment room, where a custom regimen of products for the facial is selected.
