The House of Givenchy has just opened its first spa in Monaco, within Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, one of the most prestigious addresses in Monaco.
Designed by architect Didier Gomez, Spa Metropole by Givenchy reflects the House’s sophistication and modernity down to every last detail. The entrance sets the tone with its marble finish and proportions accentuated by sleek, bold black lines. Contemporary materials can be found alongside a digital plant wall throughout the interior, for absolute serenity.
All ten treatment rooms are decorated in nuanced shades of white, with embossed walls that evoke the lace of Haute Couture gowns. These include a double suite and a single suite equipped with a bath and private hammam.
The spa offers a “Heat Experience” package, which includes the sauna, hammam, caldarium, ice fountain and sensory showers. It also boasts a gym with all the latest equipment – TechnoGym, Kinesis Personal and Kinesis Stations – as well as a Pedi:Mani:Cure studio by Bastien Gonzalez. The background music was created by Béatrice Ardisson to accompany and personalise the experience in the treatment rooms, where guests can choose a playlist based on their own musical preferences.
Last but not least, a dedicated Givenchy beauty store brings together all the brand’s products, from makeup and skincare to fragrances. The exclusive L’Atelier de Givenchy fragrance collection makes its debut here in Monaco.
The hotel itself was built in 1889 in Belle Époque style and was fully renovated in 2004 under the direction of French designer Jacques Garcia, who knew how to preserve its Mediterranean charm while giving it a new lease of life that combines sophistication and delights for the senses. Three restaurants, run by Joël Robuchon and Christophe Cussac, offer a unique and varied culinary experience for the discerning palate.
Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo prides itself on offering its guests the very best in design, gastronomy and wellbeing. This is why Givenchy came to unveil a spa specifically designed for this exceptional hotel.
