A stunning Parisian hotel and spa in the heart of the city’s ‘Golden Triangle’ luxury shopping district on Avenue George V.

You would expect something quite fancy from the grand buildings on the Avenue George V in Paris, but walking through the glittering doors of the Four Seasons surpasses any ideas you might have. Pink rhododendrons and orange flowers have pride of place in the lobby (no, I didn’t think this colour combo would work either – but trust us, it is stunning). The hotel’s artistic director Jeff Leatham oversees the George V’s famous floral displays. The lobby creations are changed once or twice a fortnight, and orchids are replaced every morning.

The staff members are immediately attentive – when I get a bit lost (this place isn’t small) I’m taken patiently back down the marble gallery to a tapestry-lined lobby, before taking lunch at the restaurant Le Cinq.

The Spa

This beautiful spa is decorated with toile de jouy fabrics and trompe-l’oeil paintings. Designed to make clients feel they have walked away from modern La Vie Parisienne, it is like time travelling back to the Palace of Versailles – the home of Marie Antoinette, the last queen of France. But there are still modern touches, such as the Carita equipment in the treatment rooms and the subtle lighting in the relaxation room, where piles of magazines are waiting for me post-treatment.

Each of the treatment rooms is named after a person or place from pre-revolution France – I’m in room ‘Marie Antoinette’.

A spa lounge looks over the swimming pool, and sumptuous drapes fill the changing area. It’s not too chintzy, though – sparkling modern fittings are interspersed. Among the facilities are a hammam and sauna.

The Treatment

A Stroll to Versailles is a two-and-a-half hour treatment infused with orange blossom – Marie Antoinette’s favourite scent.Frédérique guided me through every stage of the treatment and her touch is incredible: she massaged each vertebrae carefully with shea butter before stretching out my neglected muscles. Next, two spritzes of orange blossom scent precede a full facial.

A foot massage followed while the creamy face mask sinks into my skin, and the treatment concluded with hot towels to the hands and feet.I was then guided to the relaxation room and given a snack of macaroons, dried fruit and mint tea as I settled into one of the heavenly cabins.

After my treatment, she explained that she sometimes keeps in contact with clients by email to advise them on their skin care regime. Obviously devoted to making clients feel relaxed and better about themselves, Frédérique is a reflection of the hotel as a whole – a place where every guest feels deserving and valued.

Other Treatments

All About Chocolate includes a cocoa-filled scrub, body wrap and cocoa shea butter massage, followed by a tasting of chocolates from the George V’s patisserie.Vanilla Smoother body exfoliation uses sandalwood powder to relieve tired muscles.

To Stay

We stayed in The French Suite, with its eau de nil and celadon green colourings, and Chinese wall hangings, is an enclave of peace in the middle of Paris.

A terrace looks out onto the marble courtyard below, which is hung with orchids. But this suite doesn’t come cheap… the premier, deluxe and superior rooms are less expensive, but still offer gorgeous French interiors,

Bulgari products in the bathrooms and great views.

To Eat

Le Cinq – the 3 Michelin starred restaurant led by chef Christian Le Squer. This is Parisian dining at its very finest. The room is filled with palm-trees, marble and gold curtains, and well-heeled diners sit at generously spaced tables.

The staff anticipate every preference – there is a water menu ( I chose one from the Black Forest). The meal was out of this world – my seabass with black Iranian lemon and artichoke broth both delicate and satisfying.

The menu makes the most of fine French produce – and don’t miss the mignardises (petit-fours) trolley at the end of your meal. I finished with a delicate coffee chocolate and a wild strawberry enrobed in sticky marshmallow. It looked and tasted incredible.

Le George – Light and modern Mediterranean style cuisine designed for sharing. The Pierre-Yves Rochon designed dining room has a distinctly Parisian vibe.La Galerie – This is where fashionable Parisians gather for a drink or light bar.

La Galerie lounge showcases beautiful Flemish tapestries, 19th-century paintings and furniture, as well as many exquisite objets d’art.

L’Orangerie – Traditional and elegant French cuisine. An extension of La Galerie, under a 7-metre-high glass-and-steel structure overlooking the famous Marble Courtyard.

Don’t Miss

A trip to Colette, one of the hippest stores in Paris, selling a wide range of clothes, accessories, toys, magazines and furniture.

If you are feeling especially virtuous sample their “water bar” which serves more than 100 brands of bottled water.
