France: Located near the Musée National de la Marine, Villa Thalgo has built a reputation for excellence by focusing on the delivery of treatments and cosmetics with marine-based origins. Combining wellness, water-based fitness and marine spa treatments, the 700sqm property has a diverse roster of expertise, from osteopaths and sports coaches to its highly trained spa therapists.

Featuring 11 treatment rooms, including one double room, two balneotherapy rooms with baths supplied by Unbescheiden, and a vital dome specialist infrared room, the spa can host up to 60 guests at any one time.

With more than 60 different classes offered each week, a swimming pool and a light-filled lounge and terrace enhance the offering, while a new studio in partnership with YUJ offers a popular cocooning yoga experience in the dark under Bromic infrared lights, encouraging each guest to truly focus on themselves.

As spa manager Cassandre Amaya Grimon explains, Villa Thalgo welcomes a diverse and loyal demographic. “As well as being the only marine spa in Paris, we are unique because our guests can come in groups to socialise, or on their own, and have an equally superior experience,” she states.

“For a spa in the heart of Paris, we have a great deal of space and light and we are deeply attentive to our guests, personalising every protocol to fit their requirements,” Amaya Grimon continues. “Some of our spa members have been with us for more than 20 years, and I think that we are a place where you can truly find yourself.”

Targeted retailing

As the flagship Thalgo spa, Amaya Grimon encourages her entire team to retail well: “I challenge both our therapists and receptionists to excel at retail and they work together to maximise sales. Along with my head therapist, we ensure that the right questions are asked at the beginning of the treatment and then we can tailor the treatment as well as the retail suggestions. Receptionists are so important to the retail success of a spa because they begin and finish every guest’s journey.”

Villa Thalgo’s renewed treatment menu includes three express treatments that were added to cater to guests with less time to spend, have proved to be very popular. Focusing on one area of the body for maximum efficacy, guests can choose from a 25-minute head, back or foot massage.

In the future, Amaya Grimon sees an increase in people looking for 360-degree wellbeing: “Our guests increasingly want wellness inside and out – to have their spa treatments but also to be healthy and fit,” she explains. “Thalgo understood this much earlier than many other brands. From diet and general wellbeing to facials to suit every skin type and supplements, we have offered this for more than 20 years.

“Wellness is everywhere in the guest journey at Villa Thalgo. From the very beginning, when guests first enter the Villa, to our beautiful treatment rooms, a nurturing and supportive therapist experience and sunlit terraces, everything here is focused on enhancing our guests’ wellbeing.”
