Mind, Body and Soul

Our Raison D'être

On board a Scenic Space-Ship in the South of France, relaxation is your rasion d’être. That’s why our newly-renovated suites offer even more space and luxury, furnished with a brand-new spa and relaxation area, including our innovative Salt Lounge and Vitality Pool.

Feeling rested throughout your holiday is just as important as seeing the sights and immersing yourself in local culture. We want you to return home feeling refreshed, revitalised and full of stories you can’t wait to tell your friends and family. On the rivers of southern France, we’ll complement your river cruise adventure with a personal journey of well-being. Our newly-renovated Scenic Diamond and Scenic Sapphire Space-Ships offer a wonderful selection of treatments and activities to truly pamper mind, body and soul.

A new addition to our French ships, luxuriate in the Salt Lounge, a naturally healing therapy area inspired by the micro-climate of salt mines. Calming music and dimmed lighting set the scene as the air’s micronized particles detox your skin, refuelling energy and mental alertness as you relax.

Recharge with a hydrating River Breeze Facial, invigorate the body with a soothing customised Aroma Oil Massage or treat yourself to a haircut in time for that special occasion. Our Wellness Centre’s treatment menu transforms the spirit whatever you’re looking for.

On the Sun Deck, unwind in our Vitality Pool, immersing yourself in its warming jets as you take in beautiful views of the river and enjoy a drink brought to you by your butler. Need some get-up-and-go? Stroll along the walking track or make use of our-fully equipped gym and its treadmill, bike and free weights.  

Onshore, our electronically-assisted bikes let you exercise and explore without the effort, while your suite’s Nordic walking poles offer extra support on guided walks and hikes. And when the time comes to retire to your cabin, get cosy in your soft bath robe and let the indulgence continue.
