Steeped in history, The Peninsula Paris’ ideal location in the Golden Triangle makes it the perfect spot to stay in the French capital
Exemplifying Paris’ heritage and élan in every aspect, The Peninsula Paris commands an ideal location at the heart of the city’s Triangle d’Or, with the iconic Arc de Triomphe mere minutes away, and surrounded by the metropolis’ chicest eateries, famous museums and high-end shopping districts.
The Peninsula Paris, located in a beautiful 19th-Century Haussmanian building that once hosted a Belle Époque hotel, is replete with reconstructed period décor, Art Deco furniture and Art Nouveau-inspired furnishings – all combined with the latest in contemporary offerings. Housing 200 rooms and 86 sumptuous suites styled in cream and grey, the classy hotel combines the timeless and the modern to offer the best comfort in the lap of luxury.
It’s so Parisian
This spectacular hotel is also home to no less than six elegant restaurants, promising to satiate the most discerning palate. Le Lobby – a fixture at every Peninsula hotel in the world – is the place to go for luxe international dining, and the classic Afternoon Tea, accompanied by a jazz trio, is not to be missed. La Terrasse Kléber represents the crème-de-la-crème of café society, offering the best of Cantonese cuisine – all of it featured on Paris’ largest enclosed terrace.
For the ultimate in Chinese gastronomy, head to LiLi, helmed by Chef Ma Wing Tak and featuring a selection of authentic Chinese tea as well. L’Oiseau Blanc, meanwhile, is The Peninsula Paris’ crowning glory. Helmed by Executive Chef Christophe Raoux, the restaurant offers up the best Parisian fare and boasts 360-degree views of the city and its most iconic monuments from its perch on the sixth floor.
It houses the city’s largest luxury hotel spa
Another key attraction at the hotel is the stunning Peninsula Spa – the largest of its kind in Paris. Spanning 1,800 square meters, this oasis of relaxation brings together the best of both cultures that the hotel embodies, combining ancestral Asian practices and knowledge with the celebrated French art of beauty.
Boasting six individual treatment booths, two private suites, a 20-meter indoor pool, two vitality pools, and saunas, hammams and experience showers, the spa’s décor and furnishings take inspiration from the East, featuring a blend of wood, granite and marble. Created in partnership with French-Chinese luxury body care brand Cha Ling, the Peninsula Spa also offers traditional Chinese Qi Gong exercises and meditation lessons.
It has the suite of dreams
This upscale Parisian landmark also has the last word when it comes to staying in comfort. Designer Henry Leung of Hong-Kong-based Chhada Siembieda Leung and the design team of The Peninsula Hotel Group joined hands to craft meticulously designed and restored theme suites at The Peninsula Paris.
The Peninsula Suite is the hotel’s largest suite. Paying homage to the Haussmanian building the hotel is housed in, this 318-square-meter suite’s high ceilings and large windows ensure the space is bathed in light, while the creamy beige and gold tones, complemented by lush silks and brocades, Tai Ping carpets and Baccarat chandeliers, mean this is truly one deluxe accommodation amidst a plethora of similarly elegant options.
