Courchevel’s Aman Le Mélézin resort to open new spa

Luxury ski resort Aman Le Mélézin in Courchevel, France, is opening a new spa for the 2017/2018 season.

The spa, which will be unveiled when the alpine resort opens for the season on December 15, will cover 767sq m and span two floors. Facilities at the spa will comprise five treatment rooms, including two double suites and one Thai massage suite.

Among other amenities will be a hammam, several experience showers, a cold plunge pool, 14-metre lap pool, whirlpools and a sauna.

There will also be a yoga studio next to the spa, offering pre-ski yoga session to stretch and prepare the body for a day of skiing, and evening classes focused on releasing tension.

The studio will also feature TRX equipment for strength, balance, flexibility and exercises to improve core strength. Treatments at the spa will include hot stone massages and Himalayan salt scrub treatments carried out in the hammam.

Also on the menu will be the Mélézin Signature Spa Journey, comprising dry body brushing to boost circulation, a hot stone and oil massage to release tension and a facial designed to counteract the effects of the alpine climate on the skin.

The spa menu is centred around providing treatments that nourish and hydrate skin exposed to wind and cold during a day of skiing, massages that improve circulation before skiing and ease muscle aches and pains after.
