Loisium Wine and Spa Hotels unveils French retreat inspired by Champagne

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

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 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 associated with champagne and instead realise a raw and honest homage to the work that goes into creating the drink.

Upon entering the wood-clad property, guests are welcomed by a large open fireplace and led to the spa via a dramatic staircase anchored by a floor-to-ceiling light sculpture mimicking 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 from any given place, while four alcoves offer exclusivity and privacy.

In an ode to Champagne, the Loisium spa features chalk-toned renders on the walls and vertical surfaces to recall 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 deep simple pleasures and sparkle,” says Sanjit Manku, architect, associate partner and co-founder of Studio Jouin Manku.

The team feels 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 and natural, yet stylish.”

Guests are invited to visit the spa pool which traverses the building – with both indoor and outdoor access – as well as a spa bar, Finnish sauna, sanarium and a steam bath – all supplied by Klafs. Alternatively, they can recline outdoors at the spa’s terrace or sunbathing area.

The spa menu offers a variety of treatments supplied by herbal apothecary brand Saint Charles Apothecary, including massages, scrubs, facials and a selection of signature Loisium rituals. The modern pharmaceutical 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 spa partners include spa and wellness equipment supplier Gharieni Group.

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

The recently-completed project to realise the Champagne property began in 2020 and was developed by SAT Manager (Artec Groupe).
