If you’re still undecided on whether to plan your next vacation to LVMH’s La Samaritaine, Cheval Blanc – its luxury hotel for visitors staying over – is hoping its latest addition of the Dior spa to its offerings, as well as a 98.42ft-long indoor heated swimming pool featuring huge LED screens reflecting images of the river Seine against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower, will help you make up your mind fast.
Six remarkable spa suites
Dior Spa Cheval Blanc – which is the name this facility goes by – was designed by Peter Mariano to evoke the spirit of a Parisian apartment with a cosy living room as the centre around which every object revolves in a tribute to Christian Dior’s life.
The spa is promising visitors “happiness in the heart of Paris” with treatments in its six themed suites designed for your physical, emotional and psychological wellness.
The six suites — Bonheur, Bonne Étoile, Granville, Mitzah, New Look and Sauvage are as different as they are unique with each assuring different levels of healthy delights. The Suite Bonheur, with its timeless gold and Dior Rose, as well as its sauna and hammam shower, is a perfect private escape for two.
The New Look suite on the other hand depicts the avant-garde look created by Christian Dior in 1947. Here, the customised bed allows you to enjoy the six-handed ritual for a simultaneous transformation of your body, face and hair.
The natural decor of the Sauvage suite will immerse you deep into nature with materials like an alpha-quartz covered massage bed. But, if you would prefer the feeling of the outdoors, then the Bonne Étoile suite, with its starry ceiling, is the place for you.
Exceptional signature treatments
Dior Spa Cheval Blanc combines manual skills with cutting edge technology to deliver excellent, bespoke and delightful treatments.
There are 48 in all, and these range from the signature treatments such as the sensorial choreography and singular interlude, to the exceptional treatments like the L’Or de Vie Miracle and the Expert Protocols which include the active hydration and deep purification treatments.
There is also the Dior sapphire crystal micro-abrasion and the Happiness shots that are concentrated treatments of either 30 or 45 minutes of indulgence and efficacy that can be combined as desired with any other treatment.
A beauty boutique
What is a Dior Spa without an opportunity to shop exclusive high-quality products from the luxury fashion house?
After a relaxing day at the spa, stop at the boutique to shop for all the essential beauty products you need to perfect your treatment at home.
The finest Dior treatment, makeup and perfume sets nestle alongside the very latest Dior Maison collections, flagship Couture accessories and treatments developed especially for Cheval Blanc Paris, such as the Dior Face Baths, the Professional Solutions and the Dior Spa Cheval Blanc Paris Exclusives celebrating the union of the two Maisons.
And when you are done, do not forget to take a relaxing dip at the hotel’s pool designed by Micheal Mayer to put a majestic end to a glorious day.
