InterConti Geneve opens Day Spa

As part of a 20 million euros refurbishment project, the InterContinental Geneve has a blissful new addition, a Clarins Institute & Day Spa. The opening of the new spa is a segment of the massive
renovations the InterContinental Geneve has completed, refurbishing the hotel’s exterior
and all public and meeting space, entirely redesigned by famed New York-based
designed Tony Chi. 
The 2,370 square-foot Clarins Institute & Day Spa is situated on the second floor of the
hotel and promises to be a haven of peace and tranquility, providing guests - both
corporate and leisure travelers - with a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of
everyday life.  The spa is the perfect place to relax and re-energize, providing a calm,
serene atmosphere and that exudes natural materials, soft music and offers stunning
views over the Mont Blanc with all areas opening out onto a peaceful terrace. 
With its five treatment rooms - including one room especially for couples - and one
balneotherapy suite, the new addition to this iconic city hotel offers a pampering and
comprehensive Clarins treatment menu to rejuvenate and revitalize. Sublime treatments
for both women and men include body wraps, massages, scrubs, balneotherapy, stone
therapies, a selection of massages and lymphatic drainage.  The new spa also features a
hammam and sauna for clients to relax in before or after a treatment. 
Exclusive to the InterContinental Geneve are the following treatments:
