Renowned Parisian interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon has created a space that is at once bright, modern and elegant, drawing on ancient spa traditions with a colour palette of light grey and silver tones. Inspiration from Greek, Roman and Turkish mosaic patterns lies alongside carefully curated pieces of modern art and spectacular floral compositions designed by Jeff Leatham. “We meticulously selected materials, furniture and pieces of art that embody the spirit codes and harmony of the Hotel, both classic and resolutely contemporary,” comments Rochon.

A Tailor-Made, Results-Driven Approach
In the city of haute couture, what could be more fitting then a menu of treatments tailor-made to provide the best results from the most reputable French and international brands? Le Spa will offer personalised experiences addressing the needs of all skin types, using a hand-picked collection of products and techniques developed in conjunction with globally recognised Spa and beauty experts.
A selection of brand new Signature Experiences has been developed to harness the core spirit of Le Spa, providing bespoke sensory journeys that deliver tangible results. Highlights include a Kobido traditional Japanese facelift, an Alaena organic certified bio anti-ageing treatment, and a Dr Burgener escape designed especially for Le Spa.
Kobido: a rare, traditional Japanese facelift created by Dr. Shogo Mochizuki – In Japanese, kobido means “the ancient way of beauty,” and is the oldest facial tradition in Japan, following a lineage that dates back to 1472. Tradition states that this therapy was reserved exclusively for imperials and nobility for centuries. Le Spa is proud to bring this tradition to modern day Paris, with Dr. Shogo Mochizuki having come personally to Le Spa to share his expertise with the team of therapists.
Breath of Life by Alaena: an organic treatment signed by Dr. Sylvie Peres from France – This body and face treatment is inspired by tui na, a therapeutic art of Chinese Medicine, using patented active ingredients to boost cells rejuvenation and impart an anti-ageing effect.
George V Escape by Dr. Pauline Burgener, Switzerland – Created exclusively for Le Spa by Dr Burgener, this luxurious customised antioxidant treatment combines a chardonnay body scrub, a massage with Champagne oil, and a facial harnessing the antioxidant power of gold, chardonnay and green caviar. A sweet treat of a Four Seasons Hotel George V macaron and a glass of Champagne complete this uniquely Parisian experience.
In addition to these results-driven Signature Treatments, Le Spa exclusively offers a range of Swiss Perfection therapies developed to treat the signs of ageing by stimulating cell regeneration.
According to Nathalie Delclos, Spa Director of Le Spa with 12 years’ experience of Four Seasons spas, “Focusing on results-orientated, non-invasive, manual skincare techniques has been key in my approach to offering our guests the very best in unique, made-to-measure, innovative skincare solutions.”
The facilities of Le Spa will be open daily from 6:30 am to 10:00 pm, with treatments from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. The fitness centre will be open 24 hours, seven days a week. The swimming pool and fitness centre are reserved for Hotel guests and external guests having booked a private sport session.
Kobido, An Ancestral Japanese Facial Massage
Kobido in Japanese, translates as “the ancient way of beauty.” This ancestral massage technique focuses on the muscles of the face, restoring radiance and tonicity.
The art of kobido dates back to 1472. At the time in Asia, only one form of massage existed, named anma. The Empress was looking for a whole new way to preserve her beauty and the two great masters of anma rivalled each other to obtain the honour of satisfying her wish.
Beyond this fierce competition, the two masters developed deep mutual respect and admiration for each other and decided to unite their talents to found kobido, exclusively reserved for centuries for empresses and members of the nobility. They created no fewer than 48 techniques, passed on from master to disciple throughout the generations.
Le Spa at Four Seasons Hotel George V revives this Japanese tradition at the very heart of Paris with Dr Shogo Mochizuki, master of the 26th generation and lineage of kobido, who came in person all the way from Tokyo to Paris to share his expertise and savoir-faire of this ancient art with our Spa team.
Achieve a Blissful Night’s Sleep with New Sleep Ritual Massage
In Orlando, the theme park capital of the world, the action-packed, on-the-go mentality and thousands of steps logged while enjoying the exhilarating attractions can be tiring. With so much to see and do, rest time and actual quality sleep is often not made a priority. Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort intends to help travellers with its new signature Sleep Ritual Massage offered at The Spa. The treatment aims to induce a complete state of relaxation and sleep readiness, and is accompanied by a home care kit to assist with achieving the ideal sleep at home, night after night.
The Sleep Ritual Massage was developed in partnership with Robert Michael deStefano, sleep wellness expert and co-founder of wellness company Longeva. The custom treatment incorporates breathing techniques that focus on seven specific somatic zones, plus a combination of sleep-inducing botanical scents and touch therapies that are designed to be ultra-relaxing, eliminating stress and tension and creating the perfect state of sleep readiness. The 80-minute massage treatment, USD 360, is ideal to reserve at The Spa in the evening, after a light dinner.
“The Sleep Ritual Massage is equal parts sleep wellness education and motivation, stress detox and luxury escape,” says deStefano. “Combined with the take-home DreamKit, the treatment is a potential game-changer for parents, grandparents and anyone else who is not satisfied with their sleep.”
Guided by dreamy relaxation music and sleep-inducing aromas, the Sleep Ritual Massage is a multifaceted treatment that will take the guest through an incredibly relaxing journey that will sooth, stretch and expand the entire body, mind and spirit, creating a state of total sleep readiness.
The DreamKit includes the market-first SleepCeuticals products used in the Ritual Massage. Along with its all-natural skin nourishers and moisturisers, SleepCeuticals features a custom, blend of 15 sleep-inducing, non-synthetic botanical extracts and essential oils. The SleepCeuticals found in the DreamKit include Sanctify Dream Cream, Anoint Sleep Serum and the Dream Mist spray. Added into the kit is The Sleep Ritual Music, a downloadable sixty-minute recording of clinically studied sleep-inducing music (also used in the massage) and a simple, step-by-step guidebook written by deStefano.
Derek Hofmann, Senior Director of Spa at Four Seasons Resort Orlando, hopes that this new treatment will help guests better understand the importance of creating an environment for quality sleep.
“We know that jet lag and insomnia can sometimes have an effect on some travellers, and combined with Orlando’s action-packed environment, sleep is often put on the backburner,” notes Hofmann. “I had this treatment a year ago and was blown away. I can’t wait for people to experience this revolutionary treatment at The Spa.”
The Spa at Four Seasons Resort Orlando is a true haven, featuring 18 treatment rooms including four couples’ suites and two couples’ spa bungalows, plus a full-service hair and nail salon. The Spa offers two co-ed relaxation lounges, plus a post-treatment Solarium room, and women’s and men’s locker rooms complete with whirlpool, steam room and Experience Shower. Ensconced within the luxurious Golden Oak neighbourhood, surrounded by lakes and lush landscaping, spa-goers will find they’ve discovered a true sanctuary.
