Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Nestled under the immense Royal Monceau hotel, Spa My Blend by Clarins is a veritable haven of peace. Built by Philippe Starck, this ivory paradise is a mix of mirrors, endless corridors, immaculate curtains and the pièce de résistance: an azure 23-metre swimming pool, heated at 29°C.

As for the spa facilities, there’s a large hammam, a 36-degree pool for practising Watsu and a eucalyptus-scented sauna. It’s all clean lines and plenty of light – the sort of decor fit for a tsar. Guided from the locker room to the massage room by a beauty coach, we are wooed by the Clarins water sprayed into the air and completely lose track of time.

Among the available treatments, many are tailored to globetrotters, such as a body-sculpt treatment called the Anti Jet-Lag Stopover (€150). But for those who haven’t just hopped off a plane, ‘The Art of Touch’ will do just fine. A 90-minute session is divided into three parts: relaxation to free you from the day’s niggles, revitalisation to improve circulation and redistribute energies (a practise derived from Shen shiatsu) and regeneration: a massage to hit all the sore spots. The beauty coach will tailor the session to you – you choose the scent of the room as well as what your skin needs. As for the products, it’s all Clarins of course: Beauty Flash Balm, Super Restorative Day Cream or even HydraQuench cream. Suffice to say that your skin has never been so plumped and smoothed.

An experience like this comes with a price tag: €190 for the marvellous ‘Art of Touch,’ lasting a total of an hour and forty-five minutes – an extra €50 grants you the use of the spa facilities. It’s not the sort of daily habit you should be getting into, but with such tranquil facilities and high-quality massage skills, it might be worth a little squabble with your bank manager.
