The first Vinothérapie® Spa was born out of the vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte in Bordeaux, France. It was there in 1993 that Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas began to daydream of a tranquil oasis nestled amongst the vines, where beauty, luxury and pleasure would prevail. Their original dream to create places to pamper the senses delightfully in a moment of pure pleasure, has been realized and has spread today to several other extraordinary locations around the world.
The vision for Hotel Les Ottomans began with Ahu Kerimoğlu Aysal in 1999, who sought to restore grandeur and luxury to a 19th century Ottoman mansion located on the magnificent shores of the Bosphorus. She sought to create a daily retreat for visitors and locals alike who would appreciate history, tradition, and pampering in the spirit of a modern-day fairytale.
These mutual visions came together in 2006, when the Caudalie Vinothérapie® Spa opened its doors in Hotel Les Ottomans. Here you can experience a glimpse of paradise: the unique scents of precious oils, relaxing music and the art of massage to immerse you in an exceptional moment. For you, we offer an array of intoxicating body treatments unique to the world: the famous Barrel Bath and the Crushed Cabernet Scrub, the unmatched cult favorite exfoliating treatment based on grape-seeds... The Pulp Friction Sculpting Massage made with fresh grapes, moisturizing and remineralizing. Additionally, you may enjoy traditional massages and body treatments from all corners of the globe including European, Far Eastern and Turkish Hammam treatments.
All of Caudalíe’s active ingredients come from the heart of the grapevine. The most natural formulas possible are used to ensure the products are the most pleasurable, their texture the most sensual and their fragrance the most subtle. Caudalie is a natural brand because it owes the product’s genius to the Earth and the grapevine that it grows from.
Caudalie Vinothérapie® Spa at Les Ottomans is the perfect destination for friends, for daily and hotel guests and for Spa members to get together and be immersed in sensory delight. Begin your experience lounging in our Relaxation Room on heated ceramic benches beneath a sparkling dome, and unwind with a cup of detoxifying herbal tea before you enjoy your spa retreats or unique Vinothérapie® treatments.
