La Samaritaine offers a beauty floor in the restored basement. It is billed as the largest of its kind in Europe at 36,600 square feet.

The store houses 600 brands, 50 of which will be exclusive to Samaritaine Paris Pont-Neuf.

The site features a five-star Cheval Blanc hotel with 72 rooms, 96 social housing units, offices and a crèche (nursery). Several activities will be grouped together within the buildings that are spread over two blocks between the Quai du Louvre and the Rue de Rivoli.
