As the name suggests, this is very much a ‘palace' with grand spaces and décor to match. However, it also has great warmth and guests make themselves at home here.
TREATMENTS AND ACTIVITIES
Most guests book a 7-day detox for their first visit although, sometimes, after initial consultation, your doctor may recommend something different.
The Chenot method is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Monsieur Chenot (now around 70 years old) still lives at the property.
The action is divided between a spa wing on the lower ground floor and a medical wing near the top of the building with over 70 treatment rooms in total.
When not having treatments, guests have the run of a large and pretty garden with outdoor and indoor pools and a gym, which boasts high-tech equipment such as anti-gravity running machines. This is unsurprising, given then number of recuperating football players amongst their clientele.
This is an extremely impressive facility with sophisticated diagnostic tools and an array of specialists including doctors, osteopaths and psychologists.
There is a choice of rooms and suites with views of the town or the mountains. All are decorated in slightly grand, traditional style, are well-appointed and comfortable.
Although there is a minimum 7-night stay for guests undergoing treatment you are also welcome to bring a partner or friend who is not. However, we hear that most become converts pretty quickly.
As with the rest of the hotel, dining areas are formal and opulently decorated. While all food is prescribed according to the programme you are experiencing, a large team of chefs create exquisite dishes to ensure you don't feel you are missing out.
