Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa has appointed Anna Pierzak as its new spa director. In her new role, Pierzak will bring innovative wellness experiences to reinforce the hotel’s position as a world-class destination spa.

Pierzak joins Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa after a 15-year career in the beauty and spa industry, including roles as director of international training at Filorga and director of Orlane’s beauty salon in Paris.

In 2011, Pierzak became director of Spa My Blend by Clarins at Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris, and under her leadership, the spa was awarded “Best Spa of the World 2012” by Virtuoso. In her most recent position, Pierzak was director of spa and wellness at the Mandarin Oriental Paris.

Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa opened in July 2018. The destination spa spans 16,000sq ft, and has been created in partnership with French skincare brand Biologique Recherche.

The wellness centre comprises nine treatment rooms; state-of-the-art fitness facilities; a wood-lined yoga studio; eucalyptus-infused sauna; manicure and pedicure stations, and a mosaic-tiled hammam.

Completing the experience are two temperature-controlled, chaise longue-lined swimming pools – one indoor, one outdoor – along with multiple relaxation lounges.

The hotel boasts an enviable location, situated on Champagne UNESCO Heritage Site, right in the middle of the vineyards that stripe the hills of Epernay and the historic villages of Champillon and Hautvillers, birthplace of Champagne.

Reimagining a wine-country retreat for all seasons, local Reims-based architect Giovanni Pace designed the property in the style of a contemporary amphitheatre, incorporating the original 19th Century Post House, where it is said that King Charles X of France stopped over before heading to Reims for his coronation.
