Adding spas in Milan to stores has become of popularity recently, so this chic lifestyle concept store, with its own furniture range, chocolate and flower departments and design consultancy now has one in its repertoire.
rnIn a trademark soft palette of cream marble and teak decking gently lit with candles and soft spotlights, the basement spa is pleasingly tranquil; even magazines are removed so as to encourage complete relaxation (reading would be too much like work).
rnThere are two twin spas for men and women, so no coupling here (though the lovesick can meet in the hammam). All treatments are holistic and influenced by Ayurveda and the Orient, and are modified to suit city lifestyles (for example, speed massages and oil-free head massages) and city vices (try their three-day ‘Purify’ treatment for detoxing, quitting smoking or weight loss).
rnThe Spa Café has just opened, but if retox is desired, there’s a direct walk-through to the equally chic bar/restaurant Noy (see Eat) that’s entirely furnished with Culti pieces.
