The ultimate luxury: the CHANEL at the Ritz

It’s like I am drinking my double espresso, every morning, on the top of the Singapore. Or taking a round the globe journey in a sailing boat. Or as I am riding a 911 Porsche Carrera 4S on the streets of Monte Carlo (well… in fact I did that). You get the point here: to be pampered at CHANEL, at Ritz, in Paris, is like doing all of these. Plus the benefit of a wonderful skin after that.

Chanel Ritz

But let’s get to the facts: the first and only CHANEL “Spa” in the world has opened at Ritz hotel in Paris ( For the first time ever, CHANEL invites women on a timeless journey: an eternal moment of exclusive facial and body treatments featuring unprecedented rituals. Taking inspiration from Coco Chanel’s Rue Cambon apartment (the designer was a resident at the Ritz for 40 years and the bottle of CHANEL 5 is inspired by Ritz architecture) the facility includes 5 treatment rooms, where you can experience 5 (the lucky Coco’s number) exclusive new massage oils named after her iconic perfumes (5, 19, 22). The guests are offered a multi-sensorial experience which is as relaxing for the mind as it is for the body, offering a series of sophisticated treatments. Perfect for a… perfect skin and body, for a relaxed state of mind and an unimaginable luxurious experience. To the Ritz!
