Alpine-themed Six Senses Courchevel spa set to open

by Jane Kitchen | 27 Oct 2016

Six Senses is opening a spa in the ski-resort destination of Courchevel, France this December, catering to local residents, chalet owners, holidaymakers and other skiing enthusiasts. Located in the heart of Courchevel 1850, the spa is a part of Six Senses Residences Courchevel which houses 53 penthouses and apartments.

Designed by Longo Palmarini Architecture & Partners, the spa will feature a bathing circuit designed with the skier’s needs in mind. The design concept is based on snow waves and their organic shapes, which have been translated into contemporary features throughout the spa. Dressed in a palette of pure white, clean and bright colours, they are complemented by quirky mountain motifs in the form of local artworks and features to celebrate and emphasise the spa’s Alpine setting.

Using biophilic principles, the spa design aims to articulate the relationship between nature, human biology and the built environment.

The 7,500sq ft (700sq m) spa features five treatment rooms – two double and three single – an indoor swimming pool with a relaxation area lit by natural light, and an outdoor hot tub. There is also a vitality area with bio sauna, sauna, Kneipp path, rain shower and a steam room.

A gym and a studio for wellness classes such as yoga and meditation are open to guests throughout the season, and a Six Senses juice bar will serve healthy drinks. An open-plan reception and lounge, designed in a style of a concept store, features a living green wall.
