ROLL BACK THE YEARS THERMES MARINS MONTE-CARLO, MONACO
With more of us saying ‘I do’ later in life, this futuristic wellness centre is the place to reset your body clock and slow the ageing process. Most people book into the Hermitage Hôtel – linked to the spa by an underground tunnel – for a four-day stay.

Visits usually start at primary care physician Dr Duhem’s office, where the team get to know you with a thorough medical questionnaire and cognitive tests to discover how your brain, digestive system and skin are functioning. There are blood tests to look for inflammation in the body (beware, they show up what kind of fats you’ve been eating) and stress tests that analyse your oxygen intake to pinpoint exactly what type of exercise will be most effective. Dr Duhem’s also pretty hot on fertility issues, so if starting a family is top of your post-wedding wish list, bring your partner, too.
The spa programme is packed with sci-fisounding treatments: highlights include skin-tightening radio-frequency facials, Cryolipolysis fat freezing and workouts in a wetsuit-style harness that fires electrical currents to stimulate muscles (a 20-minute exercise session is said to equal a two-hour workout). Afterwards, guests recover in the high-tech cryotherapy chamber, where a three-minute shiver in your underwear promises a host of health-boosting benefits, from tackling cellulite to boosting your immune system. OA four-day Wellness Programme at Hôtel Hermitage costs from approx £2,175 per person; thermesmarinsmontecarlo.com
