Urban luxury

Right next to the Outer Alster Lake and in the finest downtown location, the hotel The Fontenay Hamburg, a La Biosthétique partner, is not only an architectural highlight but also an ideal combination of pure luxury and contemporary lifestyle.

Maritime charm, water, lots of green and idyllic places on the banks of the Alster, but also hip and trendy neighbourhoods, exclusive restaurants and a charming city centre with great shops and all you need for a good night out. These are just some of the reasons why Hamburg is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. It also has one of the most beautiful hotels in the world: The Fontenay Hamburg at the heart of the city is the perfect place to have a really good time.

Be inspired

In 1816, Hamburg shipping agent John Fontenay purchased the unique property on the banks of the Alster Lake. Today, it is the site of an organically shaped building flooded with light. Approximately 14,000 square metres of glass merge the boundaries between the spectacular interior and green exterior areas.

This applies to the layout concept for altogether four restaurants and bars, as well as the rooms and suites of this luxury hotel. They are generously appointed with warm shades of colour and floor-to-ceiling windows, and even the parquet floors are made from wood exclusively procured from the forests of Fontenay Abbey in France. The bathroom is stocked with exclusive care products from the Spa range by La Biosthétique, which invite you to kick back and relax during Hamburg’s blustery autumn days. Look forward to feeling wonderfully refreshed after a bath or shower with Spa Le Bain before applying the intensively conditioning, rapidly absorbed body oil Spa L’Huile for silky soft skin.

Welcome to your time-out

Whether beauty treatments, massages or fitness: The Fontenay Hamburg offers everything to put mind and body back on an even keel. It even has a professional medical facility, while everything in the 1,000 square-metre luxurious wellness world of the Fontenay Spa focuses on wellbeing, relaxation and beauty. Individually tailored to your needs, the treatment concepts of the face and body treatments let you forget all your stress while providing pure relaxation, and selected care products result in a healthy, young looking and fresh skin.

Just like the anti-aging products by La Biosthétique. The oil concentrate Elixier Vitalité contains valuable ingredients that remoisturise the face, neck and décolleté and combat the signs of time. Créme Vitalité offers intensive care for your skin, making it more elastic and even protecting it from environmental pollution. Perfect for a radiant complexion.
