As the most upscale health club we visited in Paris, this facility has an easier time justifying the pricey 25Euro admission fee. Guests who book Club Level rooms at the Concord Lafayette receive complimentary admission, certainly the best way to go for athletic-minded travelers who intend on sweating here 2-3 days.
Located below the Concorde Lafayette hotel (and across the street from Le Meridien E'toile), Waou is a convenient workout option for guests of these two neighboring hotels, and the only option since neither offers a gym on property.
Unlike other Club Meds we toured, this Waou has personality, brightly colored walls, high ceilings, sparkling equipment, and an attractive clientele. Click through to the club's website to view a few photos. Staff was helpful but not overly warm nor accommodating.
Because an ample supply of top notch Technogym, Life Fitness, and Cybex equipment are offered, we're certain your sweat session will be satisfying. Various classes are organized for those desiring a workout session with ten newfound French friends.
Waou's water rectangle is 15-yards in length, but without any floating lines or bottom stripes, it does not earn a lap pool recommendation by us.
