The Dior Spa at Plaza Athénée: An Oasis at the Palace

It is no secret that Hôtel Plaza Athénée is the grand dame of Paris, with a beauty and an opulence so majestic that it will steal your heart from the moment you walk through the black and gold carousel doors.

Hôtel Plaza Athénée has a commitment to the extraordinary, which is why it is so deeply beloved by locals and travellers alike since it opened over a century ago. Dior’s relationship with Plaza Athénée dates back to 1946 when Christian Dior opened his first store on Avenue Montaigne, opposite the hotel. With its illustrious history, shared vision of luxury and stellar reputation it was a match made in heaven for Dior, that opened its inaugural spa in the heart of the palace in 2008. It was an instant roaring success.

This year Hôtel Plaza Athénée has unveiled the redesigned Dior Spa, repositioning it as the ultimate haven for Parisian wellbeing. The revamped spa now offers an exclusive wellness space, a holistic sanctuary with state-of-the-art treatments aimed at restoring harmony between body and mind.

Boasting five individual treatment rooms, a couple’s treatment room, sauna, and hammam, the new Dior Spa Plaza Athénée introduces the innovative Dior Light Suite, incorporating light therapy—a first for a Parisian Palace spa. This therapy synchronises circadian and chronobiological rhythms to enhance daily wellbeing, energy levels, sleep patterns, and skin health.

Dior has meticulously crafted three exclusive rituals utilising different light intensities to realign biological clocks, alleviate stress, and revitalise energy. The Recharge ritual, starting with the gentle glow of dawn and progressing to the brilliance of midday sun, harmonises biological clocks and emotions.

The Recover ritual immerses guests in the luminosity of the day, concluding with a warm amber twilight to aid recovery and ensure a restful night’s sleep. The Rest ritual invites guests to unwind as the sun sets, providing a decompression chamber experience before bedtime, alternating between sensory stimulation through light and soothing massages.

Additionally, the spa menu introduces two new treatments—le Soin Dior Privé On-Demand—and four three-hour rituals addressing specific body, face, and mind needs: Dior D-Tox Therapy, Dior D-Stress Therapy, Dior D-Vibe Therapy, and Dior D-Fit Therapy.

The Dior Spa has it all. There is a relaxation area that offers fruit and vegetable juices, herbal teas, dietary supplements, as well as a range of Dior Wellness accessories. Don’t forget to try the delicious and nutritious Glow Shot beauty elixirs. This small but mighty shot looks like the prettiest liquid rose quartz and is made of eau de rose, sakura, collagen and acerola.

Adjacent to this, the Fitness Studio, equipped with cutting-edge technology, blends elegance with performance and partners with Gymate to provide unique private spaces for activities like running, yoga, Pilates, and meditation, guided by highly qualified coaches.

The newly transformed Dior Spa at Plaza Athénée boasts beauty and substance. It is a luxurious and discreet retreat, setting new standards for wellbeing and inviting guests to immerse themselves in personalised sensory experiences. It serves as the quintessential Parisian sanctuary for high-tech treatments and expert techniques which result in the most extraordinary treatments you will ever have. Prepare to fall in love…
