This sensory experience is prevalent in every aspect of the innovative AAA Four-Diamond “food-focused” property, including the Epicurean Theatre, where experts to novices come together to teach, learn, and discuss topics ranging from cultural trends to cooking techniques, and the full-service Spa Evangeline, where a range of therapeutic and delectable treatments renew body and soul. There is also a rooftop bar, wine shop, signature restaurant, and patisserie.

The 2,830-square-foot, five-treatment-room Spa Evangeline strives to tantalize the palate, as well as mind and body. Located on the hotel’s ground floor, Evangeline features a delectable menu of body, skincare, beauty, Caudalie vinotherapies, and FarmHouse Fresh® rituals, along with couples’ packages (two dual treatment rooms boast a tub for two with chromatherapy lighting and a Kohler steam duet shower).

Classic interiors present a color scheme that carefully ties in to Epicurean Hotel’s culinary theme. An airy mani/pedi room, nicknamed “the cellar,” is highlighted by a wall covered with 20,000 corks, a nod to the hotel’s love of wine, and in the center resides a fragrant live herb wall that allows therapists to incorporate locally grown cilantro, mint, and other fresh ingredients into select treatments; additionally, a sommelier works with guests to customize products to use in house or at home. Complimentary wines are provided to guests during select treatments, as are desserts from the hotel’s patisserie.

Wine and champagne are available for purchase.
