Where to stay Zen in Paris: Maison Suisen
Despite my effort to not get caught up in the haste of the city, I often find myself rushing around or feeling stressed out because everyone and everything else around me is moving in such high speed, especially in an international and highly touristic city like Paris.
It only took me seven months to find the perfect escape from the hectic city life and the best thing about this is that it’s right in the city centre, conveniently located in the beautiful quarter of La Marais. Maison Suisen, a luxurious Japanese spa centre, is the cure to my anxious lifestyle, a beautiful sanctuary that I must have walked past hurriedly multiple times before when I visited the area, while it sits calmly on Rue de Thorigny. It’s easy to miss it if you’re not looking specifically for it, for it is the exact opposite of the rest of La Marais, where things are constantly happening.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to Maison Suisen and enjoyed one of the most relaxing massages of my life.
Check out the article I wrote on Wander-lust for the full lay-down of my experience. I often reread it to relive the moment myself. Sorry not sorry.
