Idyllic, luxurious, relaxing and beautiful — just a few words that describe the vibe and setting of this resort and spa. The perfect spot for both families, couples and even those looking for a solo retreat. Here is what to expect during your stay.
These rooms scream Parisian refinement, elegant and luxe upholstery, French amenities and beautiful rich colours and textures. From the 36sqm ‘luxury’ rooms with king-sized beds, floral motifs and every five-star ‘must-have’ you can think of, to those that come with an attached tranquil garden. Families can opt for the Prestige Family suite that allows for more space, a separate master bedroom, a living room, bathtub and shower, and Lanvin bath products. Sofitel also has four on-site Villa Du Jardins that are true holiday paradises with their own pool, open deck, lush green surrounds and a jacuzzi in the bedroom.
An ultra-cool pool
The 33-metre pool is all elegant with its black pearlescent tiles. Surrounded by deck chairs for easy lounging, the pool is large enough to swim laps in, laze around, splash about with the kids, or just a relaxing dip. Open from 9 am to 7 pm, the hotel safely allows 50 guests at a time, limited to a 2 hours slot per guest, each session.
The SO Spa alone is reason enough to book yourself in for a staycation. The ultimate in pampering, the spa itself is housed within the former barracks of a military complex that dates back to the 1800s. Book to experience everything from massages and facials to wellness retreats and treatments. Plus, access to a Spa Garden complete with waterfalls, volcanic mud pools, a meditative labyrinth, steam rooms and jacuzzi pools. Bookings are a must so that the spa rooms and facilities can be sanitized after each guest uses it.
