After a day of hitting the slopes, head to The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Megève and choose from an array of wellness treatments. The resort’s newly launched A Stroll Through Megève treatment provides guests with a sensory journey targeting many of the senses. The resort also offers treatments using Ho Karan, perfect for sports enthusiasts wanting to prepare their muscles for a day out on the slopes. This treatment ends with a soak in the heated indoor/outdoor pool.
