“The ultimate luxury experience for pure beauty” is the philosophy of the new Dior Institut, which emphasises the exclusive experience similar to that of Haute Couture. Using highly trained expert therapists and quality products by Dior, the Dior Institut offers guests the ultimate beauty experience. Inspired by Christian Dior, “the architect of design”, the Dior Institut treatments are created, structured and redefined for each woman, step by step, for instant and long-lasting rejuvenating results. Each Dior treatment follows a certain structure: A one-on-one consultation and an in-depth skin examination with a therapist to ensure effective results. This is followed by a customised back massage which will help the posture of the head and figure. This process accompanies all treatments at the Dior Institut.
Guests will then be offered a shaping exercise, involving expert gestures to target specific needs: youth, firmness… This massage may be enhanced by the Dior micro-abrasion technique which erases signs of ageing. A gentle hand massage concludes the treatment to awaken the guest. At the end of the treatment guests will be offered the “Finishing Touch” – a beauty treatment including makeup and perfume, for the ultimate Dior allure.

Celebrating Dior’s 70th anniversary
At our Dior Institut au Plaza Athénée, we’re paying tribute to the famous house of Dior by offering surprise gifts.
Christian Dior chose avenue Montaigne as the location for his first atelier to be near Hôtel Plaza Athénée. He regularly dined at the hotel and even named creations in his famous 1947 New Look collection after the hotel.
From now until the end of the year, every time you book a facial or body treatment lasting an hour or more you’ll receive a complimentary Dior gift to take home with you. Just remember to mention ‘70 years of Dior’ when making your booking.

The perfect partnership
Back when Christian Dior aspired to be an established fashion designer, he is said to have walked along avenue Montaigne and stopped outside Hôtel Plaza Athénée. At that moment he made a promise to himself that if he launched his own couture house it would be here.
His dream came true a couple of years later when he acquired a property across from the hotel at 30 avenue Montaigne, and shortly after, in 1947, he launched his famous New Look collection.In homage to Christian Dior’s love for Hôtel Plaza Athénée, his first collection included creations called Plaza and Athénée.
His models regularly frequented the hotel and appeared in fashion shoots here. A wonderful claim to fame is that Dior’s legendary Bar suit was named after our hotel’s chic bar and was considered the perfect outfit for enjoying cocktails.
