The Guerlain Spa quietly opened three years ago to rave reviews, and has maintained a cult-like following with locals and visiting celebrities alike.

Editor’s Pick: Intensive Body Therapy using the Vichy shower and body polish. Massage therapist Lauren Curl expertly rubs a ginger-and-jasmine concoction into your skin, then rinses it off before a head-to-toe body massage. The result is soft, glowing skin and complete relaxation.
