For over 110 years, the Hôtel Plaze Athénée at 25 Avenue Montaigne has stood as a symbol of unique art de vivre imbued with authentic Parisian chic. In 1946, it became a neighbour to the House of Dior, located just a few steps away at number 30. This proximity sparked a legendary connection, with Christian Dior drawing inspiration from the hotel’s iconic Bar Suit. Celebrities like Marlene Dietrich and Jackie Kennedy have made the hotel a timeless destination.
In 2008, Dior unveiled its first spa here, which has now been reimagined. The 400m² space retains the hotel’s charm while embracing Dior’s design philosophy. It’s not just a spa but a holistic refuge, offering high-tech treatments to restore body-mind balance.
The spa features a sauna, five single treatment rooms, and a double room adorned with elegant hotel arches and enveloping curtains. But the pièce de resistance is the Dior Light Suite, an exceptional space that replicates the sun’s light with a unique ceiling set with LEDs, designed in partnership with Lucibel. This “Cronos Light” enables guests to resynchronize their circadian rhythms, promoting well-being, balancing energy, and enhancing the skin.
Taking inspiration from the hotel’s historic archways, Dior has revamped the spa’s decor with pale colours and natural materials, creating warm, serene, and restful atmospheres. The entrance now houses a reception area and a boutique showcasing the La Collection Privée Christian Dior iconic perfumes and exclusive Dior Spa product range.
Dior brings cutting-edge technologies to the Plaza Athénée Spa to combat urban stress factors, including the Waves 21 machine, Dior Sapphire Crystal Micro-Abrasion, and the Dior Grand Soin powered by HydraFacial, offering deep cleansing and luminous skin. Le Grand Salon, the heart of the spa, provides a relaxing cocoon to extend the benefits of treatments and offers a curated selection of juices, herbal teas, and food supplements by Wild & The Moon, along with Dior accessories.
The new Dior Spa is the ultimate invitation to unwind, offering a succession of unique and customized sensorial experiences. A space for high-tech treatments and expert techniques, it stands as the Parisian wellness retreat par excellence, nestled in the heart of the fashion capital, embossed with the Dior seal of excellence.
