Take A Moment: The Morzine Source Magazine Spa Guide

For centuries the French Alps have been home to some of the most progressive and well-renowned spas and thermal baths in the world. Originally touted as a high-altitude destination to remedy a range of ailments, modern day spa facilities now offer an indulgent alternative to time spent on the pistes. As Margo Touchebœuf, manager of the Spa Kinabalu in Les Gets explains, a break at a spa allows you to take a moment of relaxation, just for yourself.

“Despite their name, ‘winter holidays’ are often a source of fatigue and stress! The organisation of days on the mountain, especially if you’re travelling as a family, can be intense. In these situations, I always recommend a Rotura volcano treatment, which lasts 90 minutes and wards off stress and tiredness. A self-heating wrap remineralises the body, you’ll feel restored and energised when I’ve finished. 

We use the Gemology brand here at Spa Kinabalu, which I selected because they’re a pioneer in mineral spa products. This French brand uses trace elements extracted from precious and semi-precious stones, the end result is a unique texture that can be used every day if you wish. Combined with hot stones during a massage or facial, the results are almost magical!

During the course of this winter, we’ll plan exclusive packages for special dates such as Valentine’s Day. You can expect to be pampered and cared for within the spa, which also features a swimming pool, a jacuzzi, hammam and sauna. Such facilities are free to use for those who book an hour treatment with one of our therapists, providing the perfect apres-ski after a day in the mountains. 

Spa Kinabalu is open throughout the winter season between 10am and 7.30pm Sunday to Friday and between 4pm and 8pm on Saturdays. You’ll find us within the warm and welcoming Kinabalu residence in the centre of Les Gets and you can reserve your treatments online HERE. Alternatively, if you have any questions you can email me in French or English at or call +33 (0) 9 75 12 54 96. We look forward to sharing a moment of wellness with you.”
