Lagoon Island – France
A little open-air gem, Relais & Châteaux- thalasso-spa
Here we are in the most intimate thalasso in France, a sort of gleaming ocean liner between this not-so-wild lagoon and the continent. In Saint Cyprien, this 5-star hotel labeled Relais & Châteaux in 2018 (second French thalassotherapy to benefit from the label), welcomes you in a modern, design and vintage setting which achieves the feat of being both very chic and very warm. , the pleasure of the 5 senses is fulfilled! Refined decoration of the 24 rooms in a luxury yachting spirit, refinement also in the restaurant “l’Almandin” where the taste proposals of starred chef Christophe Schmitt (1 Michelin star) will delight your taste buds. The icing on the cake, a small private beach awaits you below and a motor-shuttle boat allows guests to go to the opposite side of the lagoon on a sandy beach.
“L’Almandin” a starred table
It is played in this contemporary setting, a terribly refined cuisine, organic and local in terms of products. By favoring short circuits and local producers, the young chef Christophe Schmitt, who studied at Le Fouquet, among other places, succeeded in just 18 months in obtaining a well-deserved first star in the Michelin guide for the Almandin. His passion for the terroir and the products takes him to the essentials, his search for simplicity suffers no mediocrity because the outline requires exceptional rigor. He works on superb regional products: red mullet and tuna from the Mediterranean, but also local tomatoes, asparagus, citrus fruits from Michel Bachès in Eus… The idea of marrying tonka bean and foie gras in the form of divine bites is quite daring , but a successful bet, the result is a dream of lightness…
Thalasso-Spa – Softness and Relaxation
Upstairs and in the 9 treatment cabins, there is an atmosphere of elegance and softness conducive to relaxation. The heated seawater swimming pool in summer and winter sits on the roof of the establishment and offers spa guests a privileged view of the lagoon and the Mediterranean. The welcome and ultra-personalized service is a pure delight. The spa essentially works with two brands, Thalgo for body care and Carita for face and hair care. The cure proposals offer a wide choice à la carte, such as the one-day Carita “Perfect Woman” and “Ideal Man Cure” or the “Form and Gastronomy Cure” all include a midday lunch at the Almandin restaurant but also the traditional cures of 4 and 6 days such as the “premium” fitness cure which will allow you to regain tone and vitality.
New in 2019
The zen attitude treatment offers you to reconcile body and mind thanks to the subtle harmony of thalassotherapy treatments, massages from around the world, yoga and sophrology. A total takeover so as not to let stress invade your life (6 days minimum treatment).
