Royal Champagne Hotel and Spa
Wind your way through the picturesque rolling vineyards of Champillon and eventually you’ll reach the elegant Royal Champagne Hotel And Spa—the region’s first contemporary luxury spa hotel. A wine-country retreat, Royal Champagne has two exceptional restaurants (including the one Michelin-starred Le Royal with a menu orchestrated by Paolo Boscaro) and 47 elegant rooms with magical views of the vineyards that stripe the hills of Epernay. The hotel is an easy Eurostar from London and just a 45-minute drive from Paris, making it the perfect weekend getaway to recharge your batteries. But the star of the show? The outstanding spa offering. For starters there is both an outdoor infinity pool and an indoor heated pool, decked out with sleek loungers that overlook the sprawling vineyards. Then there are nine treatment cabins, a state-of-the-art fitness room, steam room, sauna, jacuzzis, hammam, yoga studio, and a beauty bar. And of course, an impressively extensive menu of wellness treatments from custom-made Biologique Recherche facials to Kos Paris body treatments. We recommend you book yourself in for the Royal Sleep Experience—a wellness program that uses French beauty brand Aime’s products (the Sleep and Glow mist is a game-changer) combined with a bedtime menu (and Sleeping Beauty mocktail) that will clear your mind. Pure heaven.
