Visitors to the City of Light are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing luxury properties, but Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris boasts an enviable and convenient location for business travellers.
Set in the very heart of Paris, within steps of the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées, this chic retreat combines French elegance with art de vivre. Inside the 85 rooms and 64 suites, guests can admire the original architectural features of this striking building, which combine effortlessly with the design sleek touches by Philippe Starck.
Event planners should discover the three spaces that can accommodate up to 150 for meetings, while the 99-seater Katara Cinema is ideal for presentations, screenings or launches and the Art Gallery offers 75 sqm of exhibition space.
After the meetings, unwind in the spa, taking a dip in the 23m indoor pool, having a private yoga or pilates class before indulging in a signature treatment.
Pre-prandial cocktails in the relaxing Bar Long are a must before facing the arduous dilemma of choosing between a table at Matsuhisa Paris, with its contemporary Japanese gastronomy by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, or Il Carpaccio is an Italian Michelin-star restaurant. Wherever you choose, do not forget to save room for the divine pastries and desserts by Pierre Hermé – creator of the famed macarons.
