Comments: Making news headlines this year, Club Med announced an exclusive partnership with L’Occitane to create the first L’Occitane branded spa in North America. The spa opened in December 2011 at Club Med Sandpiper Bay, an all-inclusive family resort in Florida.


Angelica Exfoliating Gel is new from L’Occitane.
The 5,000-sq.-ft. spa features seven indoor treatment rooms including one designed for couples massages, a manicure and pedicure area, Zen lounge and a L’Occitane boutique featuring more than 80 products. The spa experience and interior decor was specifically designed for Club Med Sandpiper Bay.


L’Occitane’s new Radiance & Color Care Mask.
“Each L’Occitane product is a multi-sensory spa experience in itself—our partnership with Club Med takes the indulgence one step further with expert treatments,” explained David Boynton, L’Occitane group managing director North Atlantic and Australia. “We’re thrilled to offer L’Occitane fans a new way to experience Provence in an elegant setting.”


In addition to adult treatments, the spa also features teen and junior treatments for younger guests, including pedicures and facials.
