Joie De Vivre at Guerlain Spa
NEW YORK, June 25, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In honor of Bastille Day (July 14) and in recognition of the Tour de France (Jun. 30 – Jul. 22), Guerlain Spa inside the Towers of the Waldorf=Astoria invites you to celebrate all things French for the month of July.
Far from the monuments, cinemas, cafés, luxury shops and clipped horse-chestnut trees that line the famed Champs-Élysées, Guerlain Spa will let New York residents and visitors experience the best of France without leaving Manhattan. Our Joie de Vivre treatments – featuring both new and signature Guerlain French-inspired facials, massages, manicures and pedicures – will help make this year's La Fête Nationale and Le Tour de France one of your most memorable yet.
"As one of the oldest and most respected fragrance and beauty houses in the world, the Guerlain name is almost synonymous with French lifestyle," said Spa Director Angela Portella. "It just seemed a natural fit for Guerlain Spa to celebrate two of France's biggest celebrations of the year with all the stateside Francophiles."
As always with Guerlain Spa, guests will enjoy simple yet elegant French touches in our redesigned Grand Salon: red roses from Ode à La Rose, a dedicated rose purveyor in the Parisian tradition; sultry, classic French jazz from the '30s, '40s and '50s, evoking the glamour of the era; a selection of beverages and small tastes that vary by time of day, including a selection of cheeses, handmade tartines, dainty, nearly weightless Ladurée French Macaroons, and carefully selected French wines; the Culture Library, curated with exquisite art books and international magazines; and our private spa suites featuring heated tables, luxurious linens, cashmere throws and down covers, gender-specific amenities, and charging stations for all manner of personal communication devices.
Finish your stay with The Final Touch, a complimentary post-treatment makeup refresher or dusting along with garment steaming and shoe-shining that leaves our patrons ready to head out and celebrate.

All the signs of aging are corrected more quickly and more intensely. The skin recovers a perfect finish: supple and velvety, with a natural glow. 140 minutes. Cost: $475.
Abeille Royale Expert Treatment – 80 min
