A candlelit ‘Californian’ massage by a dark and handsome stranger to the soundtrack of Massive Attack – what more could one ask for? It’s so relaxing it’s hard not to dribble all over the couch.
rnThe Nuxe Spa is recessed behind a courtyard off the rue Montorgeuil, held back from the street like a closely guarded secret. Its beige and brown interior is minimal but warm, with canvas-tented therapy rooms, exposed dark wooden beams and lime-washed brickwork.
rnThe whole place smells comfortingly like honey, an ingredient Nuxe features in its products. The stylish staff are very friendly and put you at ease, and there are therapists for face, body and soul – one of whom works at the Aqua Spa in the Sanderson Hotel, London, during the week.
rnWithout even opting for one of the ‘slimming’ treatments, you can’t but leave feeling several years younger and lighter, turning heads with your glow.
