It’s the delicious pairing of two brands at the top of their game that’s exciting us this week – no, not Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin, but Ananda (amazing spa brand) and Château Saint-Martin, the uberlux hotel in uberlux Côte d’Azur village Vence.
From 21-29 September, Ananda will be running a pop-up spa au Château. The focus? A detox program devised especially for the hotel by yogi Sushant Pandley, and tailored to your precise needs.
You can streamline your detox with the quick five day program, take a week over it or even string it out for nine days (any excuse to stay in the chateau). Activities include meditation and yoga, “theoretical aspects of yogic tradition” (us neither) and “stimulating and purifying ayurvedic therapies” like massage and reflexology – definitely the most fun part.

The look of amour
Their eyes met across a crowded hotel lobby. He was caught in a slough of depression. She was the kind of girl who likes to rescue her men. The moment they saw each other, they realized they were meant for each other. They would treasure Le Bristol forever, for bringing them together...
At least, that’s the narrative we’re giving to the happy couple currently installed at the Hotel Le Bristol in Paris. Feline couple, that is. Over the last week or so, according to the hotel’s laying-it-on-with-a-trowel Facebook page, Fa’aron, the Bristol’s resident cat, has been feeling down. They tried to cheer him up at the spa, in the garden, at the bar, in a ****** hotel room. He remained depressed. Qu’est-ce qu’on peut faire?
Ah oui. Cherchez la femme!

If the name Oetker Collection does not ring a bell, you are more likely familiar with two of its most famous hotels: the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes (preferred by Brangelina during the Cannes film festival and Kaiser Karl for a runway show) and equally celebrity-friendly Le Bristol Paris (temporary home of David Beckham).
Now, the group has added another, though more far-flung, destination that is known for attracting wealthy privacy-seekers (from Bill Gates to again Brangelina): Fregate Island Private, a tiny speck in the Indian Ocean that is part of the Seychelles archipelago. If ever you wanted to live out your own Robinson Crusoe fantasy without having to sacrifice any creature comforts, this is the place.
But there is more to it than just luxury: bought in the late 1970s by a German industrialist, decades of work have gone into returning the island back to its natural state, rehabilitating indigenous forest, nursing back to life a population of Giant Aldabra Tortoises, and saving the endangered Magpie Robin bird from extinction.
