Hotel Lou Pinet
Introducing The Face Gym
Exclusively positioned away from the hustle and bustle of Saint-Tropez, guests are encouraged to wind down at Hotel Lou Pinet. Days can be spent lounging around the emerald swimming pool – the largest in Saint-Tropez, visiting the nearby beaches or winding down at the Tata Harper Spa. Experience a unique new wellness treatment at Lou Pinet which is offering a Face Gym by Tata Harper providing guests with a special glow following months in lockdown. The spa therapists have been expertly trained in the exclusive Tata Harper techniques to release tension, restore original volumes and re-sculpt features with a visible rejuvenating effect. The facial gym session can be described as a natural facelift because of the anti-ageing, toning effect. The spa therapists at Lou Pinetteach their face gym techniques to guests through personalised training sessions.
The five-hour ‘day of youth’
When it comes to the treatments themselves, almost any revivifying service is on offer here: facial, massage, body and hand-and-foot therapy, along with a menu of additional indulgences that can be added to existing treatments or mix-and-matched. Whether it’s a thermal infusing facial, using warming volcanic clay or an experiential, five-hour ‘day of youth’ that spans steam baths, body exfoliation, massages and a two-course lunch, each treatment has been custom-designed for Halcyon Spa and makes use of 100% natural, chemical-free products exclusively sourced from the iconic Australian skincare brand Sodashi.
Halcyon House is known, of course, for its lush long-weekender activities—for days spent lazily reclining beside the Med-style pool, and evenings dining on crumbed prawns or fresh oysters at Paper Daisy (the coastal-chic hatted restaurant led by Jason Barratt). And like every other element of Halcyon House, its latest addition involves the industry’s most discerning experts. Respected consultant Naomi Gregory’s magic touch is here—her firm is behind the success of Kamalaya in Koh Samui and Yaukuve Spa Sanctuary at Kokomo Private Island in Fiji. Halcyon Spa is managed by Alessandra Viel, who worked in spas and salons across Italy and London, before taking her place at the helm of Villa Marina Capris and JK Spa at JK Place Capri on the Amalfi Coast.
