A mecca for high-living in the roaring twenties, Le Touquet has retained that intangible je ne sais quoi that makes it unique and distinctive. From 30s folly to cutting-edge technology, pick your wellness style for some serious pampering.
Facing the sea, the Thalassa Sea & Spa Institute is in a privileged position with a wide open view and flooded with sunlight. If you’ve never tried thalassotherapy before, you are in for such a treat. From the combination of the Greek words for sea and treatment, thalassotherapy uses the healing and beneficial properties of seawater and the marine environment applied to your health and wellbeing. The centre has a beautiful 25 metre indoor seawater pool overlooking the beach, and a staff of qualified hydrotherapists, massage therapists, aestheticians, an osteopath, a doctor and a dietician. Two hotels are directly linked to the spa, the Novotel Thalassa and the Ibis Le Touquet, and packages range from one day to a week.
A British feel with a touch of French class, the Spa Nuxe at the stately Hôtel Barrière Le Westminster has a timeless appeal, right at the centre of the best shopping and dining in Le Touquet. With five cabins, including a double, the facilities offer hammam, sauna, jacuzzi and an indoor pool. Everything spells luxury and elegance, without a trace of offending bling. Treatments include a unique Touquetois touch, using golf balls to massage your back. Fore!
Imagine lounging by the indoor heated pool, after you’ve hit the sauna, while you choose from the à la carte treatments on the menu: massages, body exfoliation, body wraps, slimming treatments, facials… and even a session for two. The Spa Thalgo at the Grand Hôtel is an oasis of relaxation nestled in verdant grounds, yet within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants in the town centre and at the beach.
