Have an outdoor mani-pedi at Cote
Nothing says vacay more than an outdoor spa service at a five-star hotel in Nice. Now Côte Brentwood lets us enjoy that same pampering--no plane ticket required.
This salon?s outdoor treatments really set it apart. Choose from among six outdoor recliners on a covered patio (plus five more inside), where you can get services like 30-minute hot stone foot massages ($45), manicures ($20 to $35) and pedicures ($26 to $45), all using organic argan oil and fragrant lotions. Each chair has an iPad with headphones, so you can zone out to your favorite tunes.
Taking a cue from every great resort spa, Côte has a boutique full of decorative items that evoke the salon?s theme, the South of France. Cute totes ($32 to $86), striped pillows ($170 to $240) and the shop?s signature candle ($25), which smells of the sea, make great gifts.
Add to that the salon?s collection of 109 five-free polishes (free of formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor and formaldehyde resin; $16) and Côte has left us spoiled for choice.
