Be good to yourself in the new year. Treating yourself to a wellness holiday in 2020 doesn’t mean you have to withhold the finer things. From massage and vinotherapy at Les Sources de Caudalie to spa rituals at Clear Essence California spa, there’s never been a better time to discover yourself says ADEDOYIN JOHNSON.
- Les Sources de Caudalie
Located in Les Sources de Caudalie, the Vinothérapie Spa offers exclusive treatments in an incredible natural setting.
Long before vinotherapy (using grapeseed polyphenols in skin care) became popular, Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas, owners of the hotel, were using it as the centerpiece of their cosmetics line.
In Bordeaux, France, where the brand was birthed, among the Grand Cru vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte, the spa has been introducing guests to the pleasures of the vine for 20 years. The vinotherapy spa offers treatments like grapeseed facials, baths with red wine essential oil, and Caudalie’s signature Crushed Cabernet Scrub.
The unique treatments offered, combine the virtues of natural hot spring water drawn from 540 meters beneath the earth. It is rich in minerals and oligo-elements – with the most recent scientific discoveries of the benefits of the grape and the grapevine.
The refined atmosphere of the treatment rooms, the blend of noble materials uniting wood and stone, and the size of the building, reminiscent of an old tobacco kiln will make you fall in love with the entire setting. Plan a self-indulgence trip to this spa in 2020!
