New Wellness Hotel to Debut in France’s Champagne Region

Posted By : travelisswell/ 10 0

The Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa in Champagne, France, will make its debut on July 1. Billed as the destination’s first world-class wellness retreat, offering a 16,000-square-foot spa, cuisine by a two-star Michelin chef, and more.

Located 90 minutes from Charles de Gaulle Airport, or 10 minutes from the Epernay train station, and overlooking the vineyards on the hills of Épernay and the villages of Champillon and Hauvillers, Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa offers scenic views in each of its 49 rooms and suites.

This Relais & Châteaux property is spread across a modernist wing, its original 19th-century Post House, and a 16,000 square-foot wellness center, with interiors created by designer, Sybille de Margerie. The newly-renovated hotel by Boston-based Champagne Hospitality collection, a group of luxury hotels and spas that includes Le Barthelemy Hotel & Spa in St. Barths, brings to the region its first destination spa and chef-led gastronomic restaurant.

In concert with Biologique Recherche, the wellness center at Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa was designed to rejuvenate the body and spirit with nine treatment rooms; fitness facility; wood-lined yoga studio; eucalyptus-infused sauna; manicure and pedicure stations; and mosaic-tiled hammam. Completing the setting are two temperature-controlled, chaise-lounge-lined swimming pools and a dedicated staff who will deliver juice blends and guide guests to multiple relaxation lounges.

Two-star Michelin chef Jean-Denis Rieubland joins Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa as executive chef, where he is charged with two dining experiences – a gourmet dining room, Le Royal, and a more casual, all-day restaurant, Bellevue. Formerly executive chef of Le Chantecler at the Negresco Hotel in Nice, Rieubland intends to use the surrounding area as inspiration.

Opening rates at Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa start at €495 (approximately $608) with rooms available over four categories. With views of the Champagne valley and gardens, all rooms include Hermès amenities and offer guests access to the property’s team who can craft curated itineraries throughout all seasons that showcase the hotel and region – from signature spa treatments and wine tastings to hot-air balloon rides and historical tours.

The Importance of Wellness on a Vacation

Posted By : travelisswell/ 25 0

It’s getting harder and harder to make time for wellness in daily life. Demanding jobs and busy schedules leave little time for self-care. So if your clients are planning a much-needed vacation, why not inspire them to fit in a little “me time”?

Another reason to motivate your clients to enjoy some relaxation time on their vacation is to avoid the dreaded “I need a vacation from my vacation!” feeling. Planning a vacation, traveling there and then actually being on vacation can feel a little crazy. And while it’s great to get out and do things like boat cruises and sight-seeing, recommend a spa day to your clients so they can actually wind down and relax while they’re away.

 


Hotels and resorts are making it easier than ever for travelers to incorporate wellness into their vacations and there’s no better example of this than Beloved Playa Mujeres by Excellence Group.

The Beloved Playa Mujeres was recently named “Best All-Inclusive Resort in Mexico” by TripAdvisor and it’s easy to see why. Set in an oasis on the mainland sheltered by Isla Mujeres, Playa Mujeres feels wonderfully remote yet is conveniently only 25 minutes from the Cancun International Airport. Its award-winning Beloved Spa is surrounded by water, making it an island of relaxation, wellbeing and inner peace. Guests will experience total renewal in the spa suites created especially for couples, where private luxury and relaxation come together with a dedicated spa menu for couples full of experiences to share, connect and remember.

From April 28 to May 1, you can experience Beloved’s “A Beloved Life” wellness week, a week of total wellness that includes complimentary activities for all guests to enjoy like early morning meditation, different types of yoga or fitness activities, to rituals and workshops, focusing on culture, wellness and wellbeing.  Learn more about The Beloved Hotel.
