A boutique spa inspired by the islands exquisite butterflies

This boutique spa is located within the Club Med resort in Miches, Dominican Republic and started operating in December 2019.

Unlike Club Med’s Spa in Punta Cana, also in the Dominican, this Spa has a Zen minimalist feel inspired by the minimal architecture. The inspiration for the Spa, like so much of our inspiration on the resort came from nature. We discovered that the island is home to hundreds of species of butterflies, and thought that the life and journey of the butterfly would be a perfectly fitting idea. Every butterfly, like every client, goes through a process of regeneration and rejuvenation that results in beauty and new life.


The reception feature wall is created by copper butterflies and is backlit creating a soft halo around the cut-outs.

As the guest is taken through to the waiting area they pass the pools of the relaxation area. Daybeds are lined to face the pools nestled in the jungle. Artwork of butterfly wings details line the corridors. The feature wall of the relaxation area is a composition of circular objects, woven baskets, copper bowls and interesting artefacts that tie in with the circular feature at the reception wall.

Soft tranquil tones & clean lines marry with the natural surroundings

Luxurious & rich soothing treatment rooms

There are 6 double treatment rooms and 6 single treatment rooms each with a mottled copper effect feature wall tile, dark rich chocolate brown painted ceilings, dark chocolate tiled floors offset by a soft pale turquoise wall and seating colour accent. The Cinq Mondes rich dark red logo and brand colour is totally set off by the setting.

Cinq Mondes treatments transport guests to an oasis of deep relaxation

The Cinq Mondes range of products combines a selection of natural cosmetic products based on ancestral traditions and adapted by its Parisian laboratory on 5 pillars: tested under dermatological control, without silicon or mineral oil, without artificial colorant and without any animal based products.

After having spent several years travelling around the world visiting ancestral beauty and well-being cultures, Jean-Louis Poiroux brought together the very best treatments, massages and cosmetic products in the most prestigious International Spas in Monaco, Lausanne, Brussels, Mauritius, Seychelles, Morocco, and now Miches.

Since the opening of their first Spa in the centre of Paris in 2001, Cinq Mondes has strengthened its position as a pioneer of the French specialist in treatments and cosmetics. Today Cinq Mondes has under its banner 16 Spas, a network of more than 600 partner Spas and is present in more than 30 countries abroad with an important international recognition for its Spas, classed among the best Spas in the World. We are very proud to have worked with the owner Matthieu Fontix on the project with this fantastic brand.
