BEVERLY HILLS: You're not about to squander your precious appointment at the Beverly Hills Hotel Spa, tel: (1-310) 887 2505, on a quick massage. Instead, book the caviar firming facial—a favorite of the spa's celebrity-studded clientele, and a snip at $270. Caviar extract is used instead of actual roe: save the latter for the evening's hors d'oeuvres.
PARIS: The spa at the fashionable Le Meurice Hotel, tel: (33-1) 4458 1010, is stocked with products by Caudalie—the skincare range based on grape-seed extract (a powerful antioxidant). Book the Vinosource Riche facial ($160) and you'll also get rubbed down with freshly squeezed grapes, leaving your skin as soft as a vintage merlot.
TOKYO: The ultimate in spa indulgence may be the Celeb Champagne Gold Course at Tokyo's Ci-:z.Labo, tel: (81-3) 5766 4200. You'll bathe in a Jacuzzi filled with 22 bottles of champagne before having a body peel with diamond dust. Just five customers have experienced the therapy since it was introduced last October—something to do with the $2,800 price tag, perhaps?
