Luxury hotel La Réserve opens in Paris’s 8th arrondissement
Hidden behind a typical chic Parisian façade, between Avenue Montaigne and Faubourg Saint-Honoré is where you will find the newly opened La Réserve, a stylish luxury hotel in Paris‘s 8th arrondissement.
Housed within a Haussmann-style mansion, the hotel is imbued with the chic and confidential feel of a private club, or of an early 19th-century private apartment, by celebrated designer Jacques Garcia. Drawing inspiration from James Tissot canvases and his depictions of bourgeois Paris in the 19th-century, Garcia has created a home that perfectly evokes the era.
Boasting 26 suites and 14 rooms, the luxury Paris hotel‘s rooms have been decorated in four distinct colour palettes – bronze, beige, prune and tea-rose – and the walls hang with silk, damask and brocade, as well as taffetas and velvets. The floor-to-ceiling Carrera and blue Turquin marble bathrooms are the perfect complement.
The chic Paris hotel also boasts a stunning library which is open for afternoon tea whilst the smoking room and the bar provide spaces for more social rendezvous. Epicureans will be kept busy at the hotel’s Le Gabriel, which offers contemporary, seasonal French cuisine.
A first for France is the Nescens Spa, focusing on personalised anti-aging treatments developed by Professor Jacques Proust at the Genolier Clinic in Switzerland. The three treatment rooms, which surround the hotel’s 16m swimming pool, offer guests sophisticated treatments that draw on the knowledge of the biological mechanisms involved in human aging.
A stone’s throw from the Elysée Palace and the Champs-Elysées, the buzz and excitement of Paris is on the doorstep, yet a curtain of trees cocoon the hotel, giving guests a feeling of respite as they pass through the statement red doors.
