“Wellness is coming” to Chamonix this summer, with the opening of the new QC Therme spa, which is set to open on 10th August 2018.
The opening of this new spa, which is operated by the same company that runs the popular Pre St Didier Spa in Courmayeur, has seen a fair few delays. It was originally due to open last summer, then was put back to winter and now finally it appears they’re ready to open the doors.
What to expect
The company says that “the spa echoes the philosophy of ancient Imperial Rome, which placed water at the centre of satisfying body and spirit” and will offer visitors waterfalls that will apparently make you think of being in a rainforest, whirlpools and hydrojets, all heated to between 34 and 36 degrees Celcius (93-96 degrees F).
There’s also a salt room, saunas, steam baths, sensory tubs, relaxation rooms and an olfactory space where you can stimulate your sense of smell with a choice of perfumes and scents.
They will also be offering massages, which you can choose to enjoy as a couple or on your own. Choose from Ayurvedic massage, sports massage, a long massage of up to 75 minutes or tailor your own treatment to suit a specific need.
What’s on the menu?
No spa would be complete without a delicious and nutritious food offering, and you’ll be able to graze on carefully planned meals and snacks at lunch time (12:00 – 15:30) or in the evenings (19:00 – 21:00). Expect to pay separately for lunch, but if you’re going for an evening spa session, the “Aperiterme” apero is included in the entry price.
You can find the spa just behind the main Chamonix Sports Centre and swimming pool, with views of Les Bossons glacier and the Mont Blanc Massif. For opening times, dates and prices visit the QC Therme Chamonix website where you’ll also find links to follow them on their social media channels.
