Looking for the old-time romance of a honeymoon or minimoon in Paris, but want a super-sleek bolthole to call home? Luxury hotel group Mandarin Oriental have just opened their glamorous new hotel on the Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris.
In one of the world’s most luxe locations, the brand new 138-room hotel is in the heart of the city, close to the Jardins des Tuileries (for romantic strolls), the Louvre (for culture) and some of the best shopping streets (for splashing that wedding-gift cash).
There’s a vast inner courtyard for outdoor dining, and a choice of chic restaurants and bars under head chef Thierry Marx, plus a gorgeous spa and pool.
When it comes to the all-important suites, think Mandarin Oriental’s modern signatures: cloudlike white linen, rich colours and sumptuous details like free-standing tubs and private terraces with views over the Paris rooftops to the Eiffel Tower.
With A-listers like Maggie Cheung and Liam Neeson and fashion designer Kenzo Takada already fans, we don’t think it’ll be long before this is one of the most exclusive addresses à Paris!
