The spa is crowned by a beautiful blond stone vault and provides an immediate sensation of envelopment, with its warmth and the aquatic sounds of its heated pool. There are also two treatment rooms, a fitness room, a yoga and meditation room and a hammam.

After a skin diagnosis, the chosen treatment takes place in one of two small, softly lit rooms: Haute Couture body care, Couture facial care with double cleansing, exfoliation and application of a mix of serums, or a combination of massage and facial care, Codage's expertise immerses us in an ocean of well-being. A herbal tea gently pierces the bubble.
