Unwind in Nice, top spa hotels 2017

Before Nice became the cosmopolitan city and gateway to the Riviera we know today it was often touted as a health retreat, and that legacy continues, with the local spas making the most of the gentle Mediterranean climate, local Alpine spring water and the sparkling sea. 

Imagine a spa day to recover after a long night exploring the Nice nightlife. Or a beauty treatment before hitting one of the beach clubs looking your best. Maybe even a week-long detox programme to forget the winter rain while enjoying the Mediterranean sun. All of this is on offer in Nice.
