When the sun sets over the Val de Bagnes and the fresh evening air begins to trickle through the station, you may feel a shiver… if you do, head to one of the station’s best wellness and relaxation retreats to warm up.

AWay Spa & Fitness, W Hotel

The W’s beautiful pool plays with boundaries: half-inside, half-out, with hot and cold separated by large windows. The 800 m2 Away Spa includes a Jacuzzi, sauna, hammam, and treatment rooms. It’s the perfect occasion to take freerider Émilien Badoux’s yoga class, enjoy Alpine-plant-based Alpeor products, or try out cryotherapy- just 1.5 minutes at -110°C boosts your nervous system! And if that’s not enough, enjoy the gym, Pilates, and an in-house coach.

Spa du Chalet d’Adrien

This Relais & Châteaux property in Verbier boasts a radiant, 16-meter-long pool, which is surrounded by large windows with stunning views overlooking the Alps. The spa has a Jacuzzi, sauna, hammam, gym, and private treatment cabins. On offer are a nice variety of massages and anti-age treatments for both body and face using Clarins products. Even better, enjoy full holistic care with relaxation inspired by sophrology, music, and soothing vibrations.

Spa by La Cordée des Alpes

As one of the flagship establishments of the ski resort, the Hotel La Cordée des Alpes is home to a beautiful spa that embodies contemporary sleekness and traditional décor all at the same time. The centrepiece is the 15 m indoor pool (maintained at 30 °C). There’s also a Jacuzzi and fireplace, sauna and hammam, treatment rooms and a gym. Non-guests may use the spa upon booking a minimum of one treatment.

This trendy and recently renovated spa by Experimental Chalet shines a spotlight on personalized skin and body care products by Biologique Recherche. Fragrance-free, with biotechnological or natural active ingredients, every treatment is an opportunity to enjoy a 100% customized diagnostic.
