Wellness and luxury near Saint-Tropez

Lily of the Valley is located in La Croix-Valmer, just outside Saint Tropez. From its hilltop position surrounded by a protected nature reserve, guests can walk to Gigaro’s superb sandy beach. For this extraordinary luxury hotel, renowned designer Philippe Starck drew inspiration from the abbeys of Provence and the hanging gardens of Babylon. Lily of The Valley’s architecture blends seamlessly into the lush vegetation.

The hotel has built up a strong wellness identity, drawing on the magnificent natural surroundings and now working in partnership with a renowned nutritionist and physician, Dr. Jacques Fricker. The hotel has created top-of-the-range, customizable wellness programs to help you lose weight quickly and sustainably.

Contemporary design blended with Mediterranean charm

The hotel’s 44 rooms and suites are housed in various buildings immersed in Provencal vegetation. With views over the Grande Bleue and the pretty hills of Cap Lardier, all homes feature terraces for a feeling of being close to nature.

All accommodation is designed to be bathed in Mediterranean sunshine, yet protected from the summer heat. Most of the rooms are not overlooked, offering an intimate, soothing setting.

New for 2021: Opening onto a vast private garden with its own swimming pool, Lily of the Valley’s 8 pool suites range in size from 86 to 210m². They are located opposite the Lily of the Valley Beach Club, below the hotel.

The Shape Club dedicated to sport, weight loss and well-being

Lily of the Valley specializes in weight loss, with an athletic approach. There’s no question of lying around all day! Now called the Shape Club, the hotel’s 2,000m² wellness center boasts exceptional wellness facilities. At its center you’ll find a superb semi-Olympic outdoor swimming pool, heated all year round, as well as other open-air areas specially designed for sporting activities.

The superb spa, located in the heart of the hotel, features seven treatment rooms, two saunas and a steam room. Guests can stimulate their blood circulation and lymphatic system by stepping into the snow shower.

Fast and lasting weight loss

Through a range of wellness programs, the Shape Club supports customers wishing to lose weight. The wellness stays are based on the method developed by the nutritionist, Dr. G.P. Jacques Fricker. He nicknamed it the “TGV method” because it would enable you to “lose weight fast and well”, without any prohibitions. His approach breaks down into three points: rapid weight loss, gradual attainment of the target weight and the creation of a daily diet. This balanced and sustainable method is based on four fundamental pillars: health monitoring, nutrition, sport and care.

All programs include dietary consultations, health check-ups and nutritional follow-up. They also include tailor-made menus and various sports sessions. Last but not least, they all provide care that can be adapted

There are three programs to choose from, lasting 4, 7, 14 or 21 days. The first program is called “Serenity” and focuses on shedding a few unwanted pounds. The “Intensive Weight Loss” program includes a strict dietary program and is designed to help you lose weight quickly by taking care of your whole body. Finally, in the “Sport” program, weight loss is facilitated by more intensive physical training.

A culinary escape through the seasons

The hotel makes a point of choosing seasonal produce from local producers. To be in harmony with the environment, the restaurant menu is designed according to the seasons.

Chef Vincent Maillard draws inspiration from local Mediterranean produce to create healthy, authentic and colorful dishes. It can be found in the hotel’s two restaurants: Le Vista and Le Club House.
