For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

Want to know what it’s like to stay in Paris’ most exclusive hotel? Here’s the insider scoop.

Arguably the French capital’s most exclusive address, La Réserve Paris – Hotel and Spa dials up the luxe, from its setting to its spacious designer suites.

A coveted address

Halfway between Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré and Avenue Montaigne, a stone’s throw from the Champs- Elysées, La Réserve is located in the beating heart of Paris. Despite its central setting, the hotel enjoys a peaceful location, set back from one of the world’s most beautiful avenues and shrouded by a curtain of privacy-promising trees. From here, your outlook is a role-call of landmark attractions: the Grand Palais, Eiffel Tower, Pantheon, Concorde obelisk.

The finer things

The 25 suites and 15 rooms at La Réserve offer a refined reflection of the quintessence of 19th-century Parisian chic. Think walls draped in silk, velvet drapes, waffle-weave fabrics, herringbone oak parquetry, antique furniture… Rooms are spacious and the atmosphere can be adapted at will thanks to an interactive tablet that controls the TV, the temperature and the lighting. The bathrooms in Carrara and Turquin blue marble are equally spacious, bathed in natural light.

A suite to call home

More than just a place to sleep, La Réserve’s suites are like an authentic Parisian apartment all to oneself. Interpreted in a palette of four gentle shades, all are individual in design, imbued with one-off objects and rich with artistic flourishes. Spread out between the first and fifth floors, their generous living plans range from 50 to more than 200 square metres – some even come with adjoining doors.

Setting high service standards

Each room and suite comes with the services of a butler, on call to handle every detail of daily life. A virtuoso in the art of anticipating each guest’s desires, they’re available at the touch of a button on the in-suite iPad, their mission to ensure perfect home-like comforts in a discreet way: unpacking or repacking, running a bath or organising your meals, around the clock. There’s no set room service menu – just say the word and look forward to fine seasonal produce.

Food for thought

Paris is not short of stellar restaurants – La Réserve sets the bar high with its dining rooms. With two Michelin stars, Le Gabriel offers an unforgettable culinary experience, revisiting the classics of French gastronomy. Meanwhile, more informal is La Pagode de Cos, its tables spilling into a courtyard and its menu honouring the wealth of the country’s seasonal produce.

Relax, recharge, repeat

Forget the weather, stress, fatigue and even what time it is… let go and recharge in La Réserve’s serene spa. Surrounding the 16-meter indoor pool, hammam and fitness area (with a sports coach) are just three treatment rooms, where rituals utilise cutting-edge Nescens-Swiss anti-ageing cosmeceutical products. For total relaxation, book one of the multi-hour packages, incorporating a mix of facials, massages, body scrubs and wraps.
