Givenchy Hotel & Spa

Copyright Givenchy Hotel and Spa used with permission.Ambiance: Drop dead elegant


M de Givenchy gave his mandate for the Givenchy Spa and Hotel to the very talented American hotelier Rose Narva who may even have outdone Givenchy himself. No expense has been spared. Every detail is sheer perfection. The architecture is Romanesque, the luscious gardens are patterned after Versailles (500 types of roses, orangerie, fountains). Villas are splendiferous and private. Spa facilities are also total, splendiferous and private. There are separate facilities for men and woman -- but if you need to chat there is a unisex outdoor patio. Shall I continue? There is a library, a conservatory, spa café, beauty salon, make up room with lessons, fitness center, six tennis courts, walking trails, two outdoor pools, Jacuzzi whirlpools, sunbathing areas, a dance studio, personal trainers, yoga, aerobics, nutritional consultations, weekend piano music in the bar, celebrity photo room... The Zagat 1997 US Hotels, Resorts and Spas survey ranked the Givenchy Hotel & Spa 4th Best Spa in the United States.

Who goes there:

Film industry types desperately in need of rejuvenation, men and women recuperating from cosmetic surgery, the wealthy, the famous, the elegant and maybe you -- if you want to be a pretender king or queen for the day. All this elegance and glamour is available to anyone -- use of the day facilities (pool, Jacuzzi, steam, sauna) in such luxurious surroundings only cost US$25 per day.
