From the largest indoor pools in Paris to hot tubs and time-rewinding treatments, these hotels in the capital of France have it all when it comes to pampering.

A spa not might be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a Parisian getaway, as most people are too busy wining, dining, exploring or shopping. However, a city spa promises to make your downtime all the more enjoyable. So, we’ve hand-picked the best spots with spa facilities for a modern hotel in Paris, from historic hotels with vast marble-clad complexes to more quirky and intimate hammams.

1. Hotel les Matins de Paris

A small but perfectly formed boutique hotel in the 9th arrondissement theatre district, the cosy rooms are tastefully decorated in bold, contemporary colours, but it’s the mosaic-tiled basement spa that’s the main attraction. The pool and adjoining hammam can be reserved for a complimentary 45-minute session as soon as you’ve made your room reservation. Deserve a bit of extra pampering? Ask reception to book a therapist from Spa Olivier Lecocq for an in-room massage or facial.

2. Laz' Hotel Spa Urbain Paris

During the 19th century, L’Hotel was home to Oscar Wilde and also served as a private residence for Queen Margot. The 20 bedrooms here still boast lavish decor, plush curtains and antique furniture. The spa is equally regal, and guests can enjoy the cave-like hammam, built within original stone walls, or book an appointment for a treatment at the chic therapy centre, which offers indulgent massages and body treatments.

3. Nolinski Paris

Located in the epicentre of Paris, this five-star boutique hotel blends traditional architecture with a modern twist. The combination of wood panelling, art deco mirrors, cubist art and a cool colour scheme creates a creative, slightly eccentric vibe. The impressively spacious subterranean spa is equally as atmospheric, with a sauna, hammam and a very swish pool, enhanced by a mirrored ceiling, adding a dash of bling – while the modern treatment rooms are tranquil as can be.

4. Les Jardins du Faubourg

This hidden gem is just a few steps from the Champs-Elysées and the designer shopping district. Embodying classic French luxury and elegance, guests can choose to stay in the original hotel or the extension, which consists of more modern rooms with access to a plant-filled courtyard. The huge basement spa was designed by Olivier Lecoq, and guests have access to a large indoor pool, sauna and health club area, while therapy rooms offer all kinds of massages and treatments using Shiseido products.

5. Grand Powers

Feeling like a physical embodiment of the spirit of the roaring twenties, Grand Powers is a five-star hotel in the prestigious Golden Triangle. Marrying Parisian chic with original art deco features, bespoke furniture and modern design, it’s as suave as it is relaxed and friendly, while the stunning Thala Spa has been designed as a sanctuary. Named after the beautiful Italian pink marble that clads the floors, it features a sauna, hammam and hot tub.

6. Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris

A favourite with celebrities, Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris has been a discreet hideaway since it opened in 1928. After an extensive Philippe Starck makeover in the mid-2000s, it’s a shrine to art deco stylings mixed with contemporary fittings. The spa is home to the city’s biggest indoor hotel pool, and has energising heat and thermal areas. However, if you want to treat yourself to a facial, the specially-trained therapists will whip you up a personal blend, using custom-mixed products to suit.

7. Hotel & Spa La Belle Juliette

Located between Montparnasse and St-Germain-des-Prés, Hotel & Spa La Belle Juliette excels in providing exquisite beauty treatments, with two rooms dedicated to facials, scrubs and manicures. The hotel’s swimming pool is equipped with massaging water jets and a soothing current, while the Turkish bath operates against a splendid backdrop of subdued lighting and dazzling mosaic tiles. The spa can be made private upon request, which is perfect if you wish to treat yourself – or a loved one – to an unforgettable escape.

8. Le Roch Hotel & Spa

Le Roch Hotel & Spa is a gorgeous 37-room boutique hotel in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, and its wellness centre is one of the most elegant in the city. Its pool is crafted from black volcanic basalt, and flooded with natural light. The hammam and fitness suite are just as elegant, allowing you to revitalise in style. As for the rest of the hotel, which is overseen by renowned French designer Sarah Lavoine, there’s a cosy vibe, with open fireplaces, bookshelves and floods of relaxing natural light.
