Unwind in Cannes, best spas 2017

Where to relax & pamper yourself in Cannes

Unwind in Cannes, best spas 2017

Before Cannes became the glamorous city of celebrity and superyachts we all know and love, it was thought of as a health retreat, and that legacy continues today. 

The local spas certainly know how to make the most of the gentle Mediterranean climate, local Alpine spring water and the sparkling sea and with so many grand hotels you can expect some very ritzy spas and some breathtaking massage-bed views

In a town full of spas, here is our round-up of some of the best to be found in Cannes. We thoroughly recommend that you book well-ahead. 

L.Raphael Spa at the Hotel Hyatt Grand Martinez

Deep in the heart of the ultra-luxury Grand Hyatt Cannes Martinez hotel, you will find the tranquil haven of L.Raphael Spa: a whole floor of the belle époque hotel dedicated purely to beauty and wellbeing. With a soothing, softly-lit décor brightened with splashes of signature burnt orange, this 900 square metre spa is the place to go for exclusive treatments like diamond dust or caviar-lift facials to rejuvenate the skin. A calming tea on the lush garden terrace only magnifies the feeling of rich indulgence and sublime serenity of this spa facility. A word of warning: you might want to find out the prices before booking: L.Raphael has some of the most expensive spa treatments in the world on the menu.

Le Thermes Marins de Cannes at the Radisson Blu

Imagine a Roman bath overlooking the sea, an outdoor seawater pool surrounded by loungers, a Turkish Hamman, Japanese bath, and 46 treatment rooms- all within 10 metres of the Mediterranean Sea. Les Thermes Marins de Cannes at the Radisson Blu 1835 Hotel covers an astonishing 2,700 square metres of floor space and offers an outstanding range of treatments derived from the healing properties of seawater, such as algae wraps, sea salt treatments and other thalassotherapy therapies. There’s also a gym, hairdresser, and a bio restaurant within the spa complex so you can make a day (or three) of it in this stunning temple to health, longevity, and beauty.

Spa Montaigne at Hotel Montaigne

This four-star hotel Montaigne in the centre of Cannes has a lovely spa on the premises, boasting a gorgeous indoor pool, a hamman, a gym and treatment rooms in a luxurious and stylish setting. Prices begin at a quite reasonable €40 for a half hour face treatment, rising to €300+ for a package treatment. This is an excellent choice for those who don’t want to spend up big in the five-star hotels but still want to treat themselves to an indulgent and beautiful spa day.

C.Spa at the Cezanne Hotel

Not far from the Croisette this relatively new spa is part of the 4-star Cezanne Hotel and is situated close to the private beach of C Beach Club & Restaurant. With central accommodation, a private beach and spa treatments on offer this sounds like a dream come true to us! Situated in a small hotel this spa gives an exclusive feel to your treatments and allows you a haven of peace in a busy town.

Cinq Mondes Spa at the Five Seas Hotel

Rounding off our list of favourite spa hotels in Cannes, the Cinq Mondes and Carita Spa at the Five Seas Hotel offers an elegant and relaxing environment with hi-tech equipment and traditional techniques from across the globe. Cinq Mondes offers highly refined treatments imbued with global rites and cultures from India to Japan via Morocco and Bali: Oriental ritual, ayurvedic ritual, Balinese massage and sublime Polynesian massage. A real journey for the senses.

The In-Room Massage

Another option is to get a masseuse to come to your hotel room or villa rather than going to a spa where the cost of the overheads will always push your treatment costs up. Cannes has quite a lot of mobile masseuses such as Bertrand Poncet, who will come to your room with table, oils, music and everything they need to make your treatment blissful. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that these mobile masseuses aren’t good—many of them actually also visit the superyachts to give treatments onboard.
