Paris Spas

Spas in Paris are just what you would expect: glamorous, sumptuous, and luxurious. Most of the major five-star hotels have spas and with good reason: After a hectic day of sightseeing and shopping, one is usually most ready for a soothing massage, an invigorating facial, or relaxing in a sauna or steam room. Here are three of the top Paris spas for your pleasure.

Anne Fontaine
Anne Fontaine, famous for her iconic white blouses sold in her boutiques all over the world, has expanded her universe. She has opened a world-class spa in the lower level of her flagship shop on the tony rue St. Honore. Together with the well-known French interior designer Andree Putman, they have created a stunning space with an Amazonian rain forest theme to it, complete with spacious treatment rooms with mosaic walls and a two-story waterfall. Some of their more exotic treatments include the Girl from Impanema 12 coconut massage, the four-handed one (two masseuses at the same time), and the La foulee therapy, where someone uses their feet to massage you.

Dior Institut at the Plaza Athenee
As far as a luxury spa, it doesn’t get more decadent than the newly opened Dior Institut. In keeping up with Dior haute-couture, the five treatment rooms are lavishly decorated with lavender silk tufted walls and silver and white updated versions of Dior’s emblematic medallion chairs. After their treaments clients can linger in herbal-tea relaxation lounge, fitness space, an authentic hammam, or the centerpiece of the spa, a serene pool.

To celebrate their first anniversary, Dior Institut is introducing their newest treatment, the Dazzling Complexion. Your worn out skin will feel re- oxygenated, rejuvenated, and smooth after the 50 minute refreshing treatment. Other treatments offered are the  75 minute anti-jet lag facial, L’or de Vie revitalizing treatment, and Detox Energy treatment. Dior cosmetics are used exclusively.
