Villa Thalgo, Paris
Steps from the Champs Élysées, the 1,000-square-metre spa focuses on the benefits of seawater. The hammam for instance diffuses sea minerals; the result is like taking a dip in the ocean. The pool, with low lighting and holidayscapes projected on screens along with matching sound, makes it easy to escape the strains of everyday life. There is also an eatery for when you get peckish.
