Last week I travelled to beautiful Hamburg to spend a few days at the outstanding THE FONTENAY together with LA BIOSTHETIQUE PARIS. In 1816, Hamburg-based shipbroker John Fontenay acquired a unique plot of land on the beautiful shores of the Alster lake in the heart of the city.
Today, it is the site of the THE FONTENAY. This hotel is simply stunning, lakeside luxury at its most beautiful and it is definitely a reflection of modern Hamburg: open-minded, cosmopolitan and exceptionally welcoming. As an ultimate urban escape, it epitomizes fascinating, sculpture-like architecture evolving from three fusing circles. Flooded with light, the organic shape mirrors, the fluid lines of the lake and surrounding parkland creating the perfect balance between nature and urbanity. The moment you enter the THE FONTENAY you get blown away by the architecture of the exceptional atrium! In the 27-metre high space, the 198 satinised, scaled panels create a warm living room atmosphere. The 25-metre semi-circular sofa that is the center piece of this area invites you to simply watch the world go by. I immediately fell in love with the unique library and spent some good time looking at the endless collection of books and soaking up the calm atmosphere.
Timeless elegance, lavish colors and bespoke materials complement each other subtly in the 130 rooms and suites at the THE FONTENAY. The floor-to-ceiling windows amplify the sense of space, while private balconies blur the boundaries between inside and outside for a unique living experience. Each room is equipped with the lovely products from LA BIOSTHETIQUE PARIS which made me feel a little at home right away. I had the extraordinary pleasure to be accommodated in one of the exceptional suites and enjoyed this to the absolute fullest. The suite was very spacious and flooded with light whilst combining modern interior elements with comfort and coziness for the perfect hideaway feeling.
Located high above the rooftops of Hamburg – offering unlimited uniquely tranquil panoramic views of Alster Lake – Fontenay Spa is a luxurious space to relax body and soul.
It includes a range of treatment rooms, a Spa suite, and a sauna and steam room, as well as a relaxation area and Spa lounge. 1,000m²/10,800ft² to treat body and soul, in the pool or on the roof terrace seemed just like heaven and offers whatever you might wish for to find perfect relaxation! Something very unique is the 20m indoor/outdoor infinity pool, where the waterline seems to merge with the Alster lake. I could not resist and simply had to dip into the refreshing water. At Fontenay Spa, you can dive into a world of holistic treatment programs that are tailored to your individual needs, which will be reflected in amazing facial treatments as well as unique body experiences. Traditional and modern techniques with international influences create a harmonic synergy in combination with excellent therapists and carefully selected products. After spending some time at the Fontenay Spa, I used my beloved products from the SPA SERIES by LA BIOSTHETIQUE PARIS to top off my relaxing Spa experience making me feel simply great from head to toe!
And because the THE FONTENAY offers many possibilities to treat oneself to fine foods and post Spa is pre dinner I afterwards made use of the new AW 20/21 make-up trend collection by LA BIOSTHETIQUE PARIS and my beloved hair styling products to get ready for dinner.
The 320° panoramic view and the stunning terrace of the Fontenay Bar showcase Hamburg at its best and it is simply the perfect place for a drink or even some snacks. High above the Alster Lake, flooded with light and with breathtaking panoramic views over Hamburg awaits an outstanding fine dining experience – the Lakeside Restaurant. Julian Stowasser’s cuisine blends international inspiration with French roots. He creates dishes combining great density of flavour and culinary complexity with simple concepts and minimal fuss and he definitely makes gourmet food for the soul. The location is simply exceptional and the dinner was breathtakingly good. Couldn’t have wished for more!
The THE FONTENAY is a simply outstanding place to treat yourself how you want to be treated, enjoy the great products by LA BIOSTHETIQUE PARIS in a very unique hotel atmosphere and be spoiled with delicious food in an exceptional location. If you should ever get the opportunity to spend some time in this beautiful hotel I can only recommend not to hesitate!
