New Chanel Spa at the Ritz + 3 Luxury Hotel Spas to Visit Now

When the new Chanel spa opens its doors at the end of the year at the Ritz in Paris, it’ll join three other of the world’s best in-hotel luxury spas.

It’s been three years since renovation began on the Ritz Paris in 2012, and three years that we’ve lived without entering the hallowed, decorated halls and rooms. Now when its doors reopen at the end of 2015, there’ll be a few extraordinary things in addition: a Coco Chanel-inspired suite (the designer herself had lived there for 34 years, and the décor will reflect her taste,) and Chanel au Ritz Paris, a Chanel spa committed to the house’s line up of skincare and beauty.

This venture is Chanel’s first foray into spa territory, and who can think of anywhere better to start than the Ritz? By taking a coveted, luxurious skincare product and spinning it into what we can only imagine to be a divine experience, Chanel is only going to make us want its creams, serums, scrubs and treatments even more than we already do. It’s elevating the elevated, and with products available at any Chanel counter or store, replicating the spa experience at home won’t be too difficult. It’ll just take a quick trip to Chanel au Ritz Paris for a “tutorial”. Traveling to Paris for spa day reconnaissance in the name of self-preservation? Count us in. No word on whether Creative Makeup and Color designer Lucia Pica will be designing any Ritz-exclusive beauty looks for after-facial application, but with or without it, let’s hope Chanel brings its spas stateside (we have a Ritz right here in New York, you know.)

While we wait for the Chanel spa to open at the Ritz later this year, here are three other sumptuous hotel spas that partnered with luxury brands and houses, making for the most indulgent spa experiences around.
