Is This Floating Spa The Height Of Luxury?

A Dior-branded spa yacht has popped up on the Seine


Just when we thought Paris couldn’t get any more chic, Dior Beauty has gone and opened a floating spa on the Seine. Yep, that’s right: facials, yachts and Paris all bundled up into an uber-glamorous, Dior-branded wellness hub, which will cruise down the river past city landmarks like Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower. Could this be heaven?

The Dior Spa Cruise Has Arrived In Paris

Launched to mark haute couture fashion week, the Dior Spa Cruise returns for its second year running – complete with some extra touches of luxury. The French fashion house has taken over a yacht at Quai Henri IV and transformed it into a floating spa, complete with a roof deck, giant hot tub, pool and juice bar. 

Naturally, the boat is the epitome of stylish: think umbrellas in the Maison’s blue Toile de Jouy pattern, Dior-branded cushions and wooden cabins for treatments.

On a two-hour cruise, lucky guests will be able to enjoy treatments, take part in holistic activities, and of course relax – all while soaking up the Parisian sights. You can choose between two experiences: the treatment cruise, which includes a one-hour massage or facial followed by an hour-long trip along the Seine. Alternatively, there’s the wellness cruise, where you can swap the treatment for an hour of yoga, pilates or meditation. 

Treatments on offer span five categories: detox, balance, reverse-ageing, power and relaxation. Highlights include a hydrafacial, which offers deep facial cleansing and exfoliation before a Dior Floral Peeling Location, using special technology. There’s also the High Precision Facial: a lifting massage designed to stimulate cellular regeneration and reduce the effects of ageing.

Interested? You can book the experience here – but, quelle surprise, it doesn’t come cheap. The treatment cruise will set you back €680, while the wellness cruise is significantly less at €280.

Dior is no stranger to moving spas. The fashion brand has also joined forces with Belmond to create a spa on a train experience, the Dior Spa Royal Scotsman. A homage to Christian Dior’s love of Scotland, this will see a carriage turned into a wellness haven where you can enjoy tailormade treatments. Which mode of transport will Dior take over next?

Bookings available until 14 July
