Once you’ve indulged in a delicious, organic breakfast at Monte-Carlo Beach, request for your chauffeur to take you to the Thermes Marins spa. It has four floors covering 7,000m² and is one of the best luxury spas in the Mediterranean — a true haven of tranquillity amid the bustling streets of Monaco.
Life at sea can take its toll on your skin — excessive amounts of sun exposure and salt water can result in premature ageing. So, whilst it may be tempting to opt for a more traditional treatment such as a relaxing massage or a facial, we would thoroughly recommend a session of cryotherapy. It is worth mentioning that this does involve standing inside a -110°C chamber for three minutes in nothing but your underwear, socks and Crocs. Admittedly, this may not sound like your idea of a relaxing morning at a premium spa — and it certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted — but we can say from experience that the results are worth it.
You are left with a healthy glow and improved circulation — the intense rush of blood through your body revitalises your collagen levels, which is claimed to be brilliant for reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Plus, once you’ve got over the shock and are back in your comfort zone, ideally sat by the pool with a glass of rosé Champagne in hand, the release of endorphins has been compared to the feeling of completing a marathon.
