Spa break in the mountains
If you need to press your ‘reset’ button, rather than a trip to the country or seaside, what you need is a holiday in the Alps! For your next long-weekend or holiday, head to Méribel, one of the best-preserved areas of les 3 Vallées, lying next to the Vanoise National Park! Méribel offers water, fresh air, physical activity and pampering treatments – the ideal combination of outdoor fitness and the benefits of spa and well-being activities. Not forgetting its picture postcard peaks, traditional villages and lush natural surroundings.
Welcome to the source of wellness.
Because body and mind are one, well-being results from harmony of both. There is nothing like getting in touch with the mountain to put you in ‘reset’ mode. Or spending time in an environment that’s ideal for relaxation, followed by personalised treatments on an invigorating spa break.
With its mountain lakes, pine and spruce forests, glacial torrents and mountain pastures filled with multi-coloured flowers, Méribel is a distillation of rejuvenating and therapeutic nature, essential for awakening all your senses.
The resort’s various spas have embraced the idea of offering signature treatments to complement invigorating days spent in the great outdoors.
In addition to its gym and 25m swimming pool (which offers paddleboard, aquagym, aquabike and aqua-fin activities) My Spa Pure Altitude offers saunas, a hammam, four treatment rooms for massages (relaxing, sport and even mum-to-be massages). Expert facial treatments help banish any signs of fatigue or stress.
Several hotels in Méribel welcome you to their spas, and each has its own particular atmosphere. All offer a range of mountain-themed wellness treatments to meet your every need, such as detoxifying, revitalizing or Ayurvedic treatments, plus treatments to target signs of aging. There are even treatments tailored to children’s needs.
One particular, luxurious chalet invites you to share a genuine shiatsu experience to help reactivate your energy flow.
A super-comfortable refuge nestled in the heart of an exceptional natural site offers you tailor-made experiences to satisfy the most demanding clients: a milk bath for maximum hydration, a hay bed to relieve neck and back tension and promote deep relaxation, Lyashi dome to enhance weight loss, detoxify and purify the body, Stendo to boost the circulatory system, and Mostleds for cell regeneration and to relieve pain and rheumatism.
Over the years, Méribel has created a fine reputation in les 3 Vallées for expertise in wellness and restorative care. These gentle therapies act as a complement to outdoor activities. Méribel in summer is the ideal destination for a wellness weekend or holiday in mountains.
In summer, the resort offers even more wellness activities, especially yoga: based on the energies of the season, with morning yoga on the shores of Lake Tuéda or the Arpasson terrace, family yoga centred round play, or regenerating outdoor yoga which alternates with deep breathing exercises.
Why not complement this daily ritual with a pleasurable hike in the Tuéda Nature Reserve, or foraging, breathing workshops, detox cures, sensory awakening, ‘balanced’ picnics or qi gong in the heart of nature? Slow Altitude is part of Méribel’s DNA.
In addition to treatments, Méribel offers a wide variety of outdoor activities suitable for everyone, for a holiday to delight every member of your family or party.
A range of well-established Wellness practitioners are based in Méribel. Some specialise in shiatsu and essential oils to regulate stress, boost the immune system and promote lasting balance. Others specialise in physiotherapy and osteopathy and focus on back pain, in particular through postural Pilates. One yoga practitioner offers a 360° approach to easing the back and also works on breathing and mindfulness in private and group lessons. A similar multi-facetted approach is used by masseurs who personalise their care to each individual’s needs, and add meditation work when necessary.
