Alsace is quickly becoming a spa destination. Long known for its excellence in hospitality and gastronomy, the Alsace region, nestled up against Germany and Switzerland on the Eastern border of France, is again distinguishing itself in the royal tradition of Black Forest cures and wellness retreats in the form of high-end and innovative spa resorts.

The Asiane Spa at l’hotel Le Parc (4 Stars) in Obernai is one of Alace’s premier spas. In 2010 at the 2nd National Conference of Spas held in Paris, it was awarded 2nd prize overall making it the top spa in Alsace.

It’s a slice of peaceful heaven nestled just above the delightful Alsacian village of Obernai, once formerly a royal city of kings, and just at the foot of the majestic Mt. St. Odile, patron saint of the picturesque village.

Current hotel director Maxime Wucher used his professionally formative years spent in the Orient as inspiration for the spa’s design and its thematic menu. The 500M2  spa flourishes four monumental doors from Rajasthan and a floor-to-ceiling carved wooden Buddha.

Each of the three treatment rooms transports you to a different continent – Morocco, Bali and India. The treatment menu is just as innovative, offering signature treatments from Hawaii, Asia, a Thai foot massage and the Royal Alsacien.

Spa director Brigitte Dutter regularly travels to Asia – Sri Lanka or Bali – where she reinvigorates her extensive massage and wellness training with deeper knowledge of the cultural rituals and traditions of the native massage techniques.

Massage Menu

The Royal Alsacien lasts 60 minutes and commences with a body scrub of fine gravel. The gravel soil is native to Alsace and is the natural terroir of the Riesling and Gewürztraminer grapes grown in the region. A relaxing full-body massage follows the scrub, using the custom-made Le Parc treatment creams, in this case the shea butter based and all natural crème Royale Alsacienne made with the aromatic and healing plants of the Vosges valley.

Book your spa day now… l’hotel Le Parc’s indoor and outdoor pools, combined with their infrared treatment cabin, sauna, steam rooms and essential oil jet baths, make it a full-day wellness treatment guaranteed to rid you of toxic stress. Couples massage by request. http://www.hotel-du-parc.com/
