The Dior Spa Cruise returns for another season amidst couture week. Setting sail in Paris on 3 July, consider it an impeccably dressed, floating wellness guru with great views of the Eiffel Tower and a sincere desire to help you detox, re-energise, reverse-age, and relax, for two hours on the Seine.
Best thing about it? With only four rooms—three single, one double—we’re talking exclusive relaxation that’s available for only five people at a time.
Taking place on a yacht named Stunning Excellence that’s currently moored at Port Henri IV, near Île Saint-Louis, the cruising continues until July 14 (coinciding with Couture Week in the city), and has you covered for tailor-made holistic treatment programs that treat mental, emotional and physical well-being.
To our mind, the Dior initiative gets the concept of cruising just right—namely, it only lasts two hours. Enough time for you to relax, unwind, and enjoy a treatment and the view. There are two types of cruises on offer (treatment-based and wellness) each lasting the full 120 minutes. Those looking for the full Dior package can combine them both for a four-hour extravaganza.
While reservations are available online (here), it’s worth noting that the treatment cruise, includes one hour of chilled time on deck, and a one-hour treatment (detox, balance, reverse-aging, power or relaxation), are available on specific dates, so be sure to check before booking.
The wellness cruise, meanwhile, offers one hour of on-deck relaxation and a 60-minute wellness activity.
Unsurprisingly, the yacht itself is something of a flex. The remodelled decor includes Dior’s signature toile de jouy, while the 1,290-square-foot upper deck features a juice bar and pool, as well as lounge chairs to see and be seen from. Although as you’ll glide past Parisian icons such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame cathedral, Musée d’Orsay and Grand Palais, it would be advisable to be more on the side of seeing than being seen.
Set sail on the Dior Spa Cruise from July 3 to 14. Reservations are available at Dior.com
