La Reserve Ramatuelle
Ramatuelle, France

What:
Part spa, part hotel, Ramatuelle is the latest luxury domain in the Swiss hospitality group’s portfolio.

Where:
Perched on a tranquil hilltop by the Mediterranean Sea, yet minutes away from glamour of St. Tropez.

Why:
If its breathtaking Provencal surroundings are not enough of a pull, then try an enormous 1,000 square meter spa space comprising of 13 treatment cabins, an indoor pool with jet lane and a crack team of health and beauty experts on hand for the ultimate pampering experience upon which La Reserve prides itself.

As a member of Design Hotels, architecture and interior design is also a key feature, and Jean-Michel Wilmotte’s transformation of the original 1950s structure does not disappoint. Natural materials in a complementary color palette of ochre, white and
sandy beige create a calming backdrop, with contemporary furniture classics by Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl, Moroso, Poltrona Frau and B&B Italia. Designer Rémi Tessier is responsible for La Réserve’s twelve private villas, which focus on spacious open areas. The villas are surrounded by large private gardens and pools in typical Mediterranean style, intended to maximise the pleasures of the Provencal sun.
