This treatment was designed by Decléor specialists after a walk in the award-winning gardens. The ritual begins with a back massage, which allows your therapist to ease any muscular tension. Using a powerful elixir of orange blossom, the face is revived and a youthful glow restored. Whilst the intense firming mask is taking effect, your therapist will continue to massage the legs, hands, feet and scalp. This treatment is priced £74 for 85 minutes. A gymnasium is also available.
