Hotel Molitor Paris Paris, France

8Telegraph expert rating

This was once the most famous swimming pool in the city. It is now a hotel unlike any other in Paris. Indeed, it doesn't feel much like being in the capital at all, more like a resort hotel where you could easily spend your day on a lounger around the pool. It hosts the largest hotel spa in Paris, and with its Art Deco motifs and young and lively mood, it is also perhaps the most fun. Treatments use plant-perfumed oils; nail varnish and champagne sessions are also popular. The star turn is the Beyond the Water treatment, complete with hot and cold foot treatment, aquatic cushions and watery soundtrack. Read expert review. From £190per night. Check availability.

Maison Souquet Paris, France

9Telegraph expert rating

Maison Souquet falls within the current trend for small-scale luxury rather than the giant palaces of old. Colonising the characterful district of Pigalle, the historic building's brief moment as a maison close gives it a slightly naughty spirit. Perfect for a romantic weekend. Staff are ready to hand you the private key for the Salle d'Eau: a gorgeous, dimly lit 10-metre swimming pool and steaming hammam. Treatments available range from Hawaiian massages to 'natural glow' facials. Guests can then retreat to one of the quirky bedrooms, with their textile-clad walls, stuffed bedheads, peacock feathers and chinoiserie. Read expert review. From £294per night. Check availability.

Ritz Paris Paris, France

The most talked about new addition of the recently re-opened Ritz Paris is the world's first Chanel spa, bringing a gentle waft of perfume, to accompany the gym and the galleried indoor pool, kept at a tropical 31°C. There's a big emphasis on skincare; guests can take a 'moisturisation cruise' or 'resculpt' their face courtesy of the LE LIFT range. Sessions with a Chanel makeup artist are also in demand. Combine with French-style afternoon tea in the library-salon Proust (featuring madeleines) for the full Ritz experience. All rooms have marble fireplaces and the peach-coloured dressing gowns, towels and slippers that César Ritz decided was the most flattering colour for women. Read expert review. From £894per night. Check availability.
