Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa has appointed Anna Pierzak to the role of spa director.
The property hopes she will bring wellness experience as it seeks to become a world-class destination spa.
Pierzak joins Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa after a 15-year career in the beauty and spa industry which has led her to roles including director of international training at Filorga and director of Orlane’s beauty salon in Paris.
In 2011, she became director of Spa My Blend by Clarins at Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris.
Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa opened in July last year.
In partnership with acclaimed French brand Biologique Recherche, the wellness centre comprises nine treatment rooms; state of the art fitness facilities; a wood-lined yoga studio; eucalyptus-infused sauna; manicure and pedicure stations; and a mosaic-tiled Hammam.
Completing the experience are two temperature-controlled, chaise longue-lined swimming pools - one indoor, one outdoor - along with dedicated staff who deliver invigorating juice blends and guide guests to multiple relaxation lounges.
The hotel boasts an enviable location, situated on Champagne UNESCO Heritage Site, right in the middle of the vineyards that stripe the hills of Epernay and the historic villages of Champillon and Hautvillers, birthplace of Champagne.
Reimagining a wine-country retreat for all seasons, local Reims-based architect, Giovanni Pace designed the property in the style of a contemporary amphitheatre, incorporating the original 19th century post house, where it is said that King Charles X of France stopped over before heading to Reims for his coronation.
