Deep Nature designs Center Parcs spa in France with Ottoman foam ritual

by Jane Kitchen | 05 Dec 2018

The Three Forests Center Parcs in Moselle, France, has added a 1,600sq m spa dedicated to wellbeing at its 435-hectare forested resort.

Designed by spa consultancy Deep Nature, the spa is bathed in natural light from a large glass roof, and includes saunas, a pebble course, steam room, scrub room, salt cabin, saltwater pool, indoor pool and whirlpools.

Outdoors, a circular sauna, whirlpool and heated swimming pool allow visitors to enjoy views of the forest year-round, and spa treatments are offered in one of eight individual or two double cabins.

Deep Nature took inspiration from the forested acreage of the resort, with details like a relaxation room equipped with a fireplace that burns logs from the surrounding forest.

Areas are themed around vegetable, mineral and aquatic worlds, including water and vegetation, air and steam, salt and crystal, fire and ice, and wood and nature.

The spa also offers a course for guests to enjoy the benefits of alternating between hot and cold, which includes a sauna, snow shower, cold water bucket, cold shower and ice cannon.

A pool with a jet course, bubble beds, massage nozzles, walking pool and panoramic sauna offers views of the forest from indoors.

There is also a family spa, accessible to children aged 8 to 16 accompanied by parents. Designed as an introduction to wellbeing and relaxation, the family spa includes two hours of time in the experience pools.

Signature treatments at the main spa include a Bamboo Ritual, a Brush Massage and Ottoman Foam Ritual.

The Brush Massage includes a private hammam session to prepare the skin, followed by a brush to the entire back of the body to stimulate blood circulation and energy, resulting in an intense exfoliation. The treatment is given in the steam area, where guests can also enjoy a rhassoul treatment or black soap scrub.

The Ottoman Foam Ritual also starts with a 15-minute private hammam session, followed by a black soap scrub and a foam massage, designed to be both relaxing and purifying.

The Warm Bamboo Signature Treatment was designed exclusively for Center Parcs, and includes a body massage followed by a facial treatment and lasts 1 hour and 40 minutes. The massage uses warm bamboo, which grows at Center Parcs, to bring balance and energy to the body by stimulating blood circulation and eliminating toxins.
