With the toils of city living often wearing hard on the mind and body, it was by no means a coincidence when Océanide Spa and Wellness resort chose to open their retreat in the centre of Nice.
Offering the city’s cosmopolitain citizens a refreshing break from urban living and metropolitan sprawl, the innovative spa on 1 rue Voltaire is located minutes from the bustling neighbourhood of Nice Étoile and just a stone’s throw from the often hectic Avenue Jean Médecin. The spa spans 250sqm of luxurious, well-being indulgence complete with a traditional Turkish hammam, Finnish-style sauna, intimate massage rooms, couples exfoliation suites, hi-tech showering facilities and relaxation spaces.
The centre’s expert masseuses and health team have carefully selected a range of natural products for their clientele, each adapted to the array of treatments on offer: massages inspired by cultures around the world such as the Sahara, Red Sea, India and Turkey.
The centre’s own signature Océanide massage and exfoliation packages use ingredients such as chickpeas, cereals, Argan, honey and alum (from 45 euros per 30 minutes). Other treatments include facials (from 60 euros per 45 minutes), epilation and hair care.
Creating a sense of balance and vitality in their clients is of upmost importance and the team draw on experiences gained through the study of traditional and ancestral techniques to provide a well-rounded experience within the centre’s soothing walls.
