Loisium Spa

Champagne-inspired spa hotel opens in French wine country


Hospitality group Loisium Wine and Spa Hotels has opened a new four-star spa hotel perched upon a hill in France’s Champagne region.

With two existing locations in Austria, the group’s vision involves creating properties which fuse modern architecture, wellness, wine experiences and relaxation.

The latest addition to the portfolio is Loisium Wine and Spa Hotel Champagne – a property developed by SAT Manager (Artec Groupe) and inspired by the natural beauty of the region, overlooking vine-covered hills and forests.

Architecture and interior design firm Studio Jouin Manku was appointed to design and deliver the 101-room property and its 1,000sq m spa in Mutigny.

The studio was keen to divert from the sense of opulence typically associated with champagne and instead conceptualise a raw and honest homage to the work that goes into creating the beverage.

Upon entering the wood-clad property, guests are welcomed by a large open fireplace and access to the spa is via a dramatic staircase anchored by a floor-to-ceiling light sculpture designed to mimic champagne bubbles.

The spa area is decorated with a pallet of natural materials and populated with cosy nooks and bright colours intended to bring nature indoors. Large glass-fronted areas also reveal expansive views of the forest and vineyards, while four alcoves offer exclusivity and privacy.

Interiors mirror the terroir
In an ode to Champagne, the Loisium spa features chalk-toned renders on the walls and vertical surfaces to replicate the particular soil characteristics typical to the province. Blue slate-coloured floor ceramics complete the facility in another subtle nod to the terroir.

“Our project is a mix of simple pleasures and sparkle,” says Sanjit Manku, architect, associate partner and co-founder of Studio Jouin Manku.

The design team felt the building’s purpose is to promote the diversity and beauty of the Champagne area.

“The design carefully navigates the site’s natural attributes while the interior design scheme is both functional, natural, yet stylish.”

Guests are invited to visit the spa’s pool that traverses the building – with both indoor and outdoor access – as well as a spa bar, Finnish sauna, sanarium and a steam bath supplied by Klafs.

Alternatively, they can recline outdoors on the spa’s terrace or sunbathing area.

The menu offers treatments by herbal brand Saint Charles Apothecary, including massages, scrubs, facials and signature Loisium rituals. The brand is a long-term partner of Loisium and is partnered with its two other spas.

Guests can also find the apothecary-inspired products as amenities in their rooms, as well as in the spa’s retail boutique.

Additional facilities at Loisium Wine and Spa Hotel Champagne include two distinct dining experiences and multiple conference spaces.
