A new uber-luxurious hotel, right on the Seine River, has opened this week in the French capital.
Cheval Blanc Paris is the latest addition to the Maisons Cheval Blanc portfolio of LVMH’s prestigious properties, centrally positioned as a hub to the Parisian landmarks of The Louvre, Notre-Dame, Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the Eiffel Tower and more.
Set within an Art Deco masterpiece designed by Henri Sauvage in 1928, the property has been painstakingly restored by stonemasons, gilders, stonecutters and other experts, over the past seven years. The Maison now emerges as a decadent hotel, offering 72 keys (26 rooms and 46 suites) with views to the Louvre, Seine and Notre-Dame.
Cheval Blanc Paris comes to life thanks to visionaries, craftsmen, artists and enthusiasts. Edouard François, architect, rehabilitated the listed building. The architect Peter Marino thinks of the decoration like a Parisian residence, surrounded by artists and craftsmen with exceptional know-how.
There are four restaurants and bars including the Italian restaurant Langosteria, on the seventh-floor and offering panoramic vistas from a terrace, coupled with Le Tout-Paris (All Paris), a contemporary brasserie with views of the Parisian skyline, from Notre-Dame to the Eiffel Tower.
At the helm of the first-floor gastronomic restaurant, Plénitude, is Arnaud Donckele, the three Michelin star chef of Vague d’Or in Cheval Blanc St-Tropez. Meanwhile, Limbar is open for breakfast, lunch and cocktails, under the guidance of Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric.
Additionally, the Table de Partage invites guests to savour, taste and discover superlative cuisine among family and friends in private.
The Maison also features the Dior Spa Cheval Blanc Paris, with its six tailor-made treatments suites, a spectacular indoor swimming pool (that’s destined to be an Instagram favourite with guests) and a gym with cutting-edge sports equipment.
Other properties within the LVMH Hotel Management collection include Cheval Blanc Courchevel in the French Alps, Cheval Blanc St. Tropez in the French Riviera, Cheval Blanc St-Barth in the French West Indies and Cheval Blanc Randheli in the Maldives. The group has also been linked to a new property on Rodeo Drive, Beverley Hills in California proposed to open in 2025.
LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton) is one, if not the most, luxurious group brand names in the world.
