In a decor inspired by the traditional Provencal fountains and lavoirs (communal clothes’ washing places) the Spa by Clarins offers time out: a moment of sheer revitalizing relaxation in an ambience redolent of the warmth and sensuality of the Mediterranean basin.

There are 5 treatment booths including a double VIP booth, indoor swimming pool, experience showers, saunas (one with infra-red), hammams, indoor and outdoor relaxation areas, a solarium and a spacious fitness centre. 1000 m2 dedicated to physical and mental well-being, tucked away in a quiet and peaceful haven of Provencal tones and hues

The Marseille Spa by Clarins is the first ever care and beauty treatment centre from this world-famous brand to open in the city of Marseille and indeed the first ever partnership between the brand and an InterContinental hotel in France.

Beauty treatments, saunas and hammams

The SPA offers a range of beauty treatments that remain faithful to the fundamental principles of Clarins : treating the skin gently, with fluid, smooth pressure, without ever causing tissue displacement. Treatments are specially designed to restore the youth, radiance harmony and purity of the skin. Body care is designed to stimulate a slim, firmed and toned silhouette.

All care and beauty treatments are dispensed by professional licenced therapists, experts in their field.

Among the care and beauty treatments on offer, a special mention for the “Clarins en Provence” treatment, exclusive to the InterContinental Marseille Hôtel-Dieu: it includes a hammam, a plant-based exfoliation and a rejuvenating massage with lavender pouches. The result is a wondrous sense of well-being and harmony akin to a siesta beneath an ancient olive tree.

Two saunas, that include an infra-red, help eliminate stress, stimulate blood circulation, relax tired muscles and eradicate fatigue, through the use of dry heat containing neither steam nor vapour.

Temperatures vary from 55°C for the infra-red to 85°C for the traditional: both offer peaceful moments of serenity, and give the body time to relax and recuperate in a setting of pleasant subdued colours.

The 2 hammams have different uses

The first one allows for a purification ritual by means of a steam bath that encourages sleep, eliminates body toxins, tones the muscles and is conducive to deep relaxation. It is recommended following physical activity to help ease the muscles and alleviate aches and pains.

True to tradition, the second hammam contains an exfoliating table to remove dead cells and maximize the benefits of the steam bath by restoring the elasticity and the soft radiance of the skin.

The experience showers offer a veritable sensorial voyage into the realms of well-being
