Following its extensive $60million refurbishment, luxury resort Le Méridien Ile Maurice has officially unveiled its brand-new Snow Room, the first of its kind to be found on the beautiful island of Mauritius.
Set on a kilometer of golden sand in Pointe aux Piments on the northwest coast of Mauritius, Le Méridien Ile Maurice is the perfect pick for an escape combining wellness and wanderlust. The Snow Room is part of spacious, state-of-the-art Explore Spa and has been designed to offer contrast therapy known to provide many health benefits; from relieving pain, skin irritation and allergy symptoms to improving blood circulation, strengthening the immune system and combating fatigue.
Guests are first invited to head to Explore Spa’s hot sauna and spend 15 - 20 minutes warming up their body, before entering the Snow Room with a temperature of between -5 and -10° Celsius, for anywhere from 3-5 minutes. As the body gently cools from head-to-toe, deep breathing is encouraged to aid in clearing the respiratory passage, with the option for a self-given ‘snow massage’ too - simply grab a handful of ice chips and rub them gently over the skin.
Those looking to level up the experience can book the ‘Explore Spa Wellness Journey’ (£103pp), featuring a 30-minute personal training session followed by a relaxing 30-minute spa session trying the Snow Room, Sauna and Hamman, before unwinding with a signature 90-minute spa treatment of choice.
There are a wealth of other spa treatments available, with guests able to benefit from 20% off select treatments over 60 minutes on the spa menu. Choose from the likes of the vibrant couples Chakra Art full body visual massage experience (90mins), the Four Hand Choreography massage by two therapists designed to encourage a deep sense of relaxation (60 or 90mins), or a cleansing, hydrating and lifting Limitless Facial (90 mins).
A weekly wellness calendar of complimentary activities is also on offer at Le Méridien Ile Maurice for nourishing the mind, body and soul, with everything from sunrise beach yoga and family fitness sessions to HIT classes and a tutorial on the art of Chakra balancing at the spa!
Combine all this with a stay in one of Le Méridien Ile Maurice’s beautiful bedrooms or suites, and you have the recipe for a truly revitalizing experience.
