The clear, cold waters at Evian, legendary for their health and beauty benefits, attract a clientele with both the time and the money to appreciate them. The most luxurious way to immerse yourself in the resort’s hydro-rituals is to check into either of these hotels, both of which maintain private spa facilities open only to well-heeled guests: Hôtel Royal, boulevard de Royal, or Hôtel Ermitage, avenue du Léman (contact for both: or [tel] 04-50-26-85-00). They offer expensive packages perfect for pampering patrons’ bodies, souls, and egos.



More reasonably priced are the spa facilities at Les Thermes Evian, place de la Libération (; [tel] 04-50-75-02-30). This public spa is adjacent to Débarcadère (the dock), just uphill from the edge of the lake. The hotel spas are more likely to emphasize beauty regimes and stress therapies; the public facility offers a broader range of services, including tanning, massage, and skin and beauty care (but no facilities for overnight guests). Depending on the program you select, you will spend 20€ to 220€. The spa is open Monday to Saturday, usually from 9am to 8pm.
