Le Meurice In Love – Paris
Le Meurice In Love – Paris
For those lovebirds planning a romantic trip in Paris, whether your planning to wed in Paris, an engagement surprise or a romantic weekend away Le Meurice Hotel is eyecatching, stunning and the perfect romantic setting to set your trip to a fine start.
Dorchester Collection’s classic Parisian palace-hotel Le Meurice is offering guests the opportunity to hold the perfect wedding or vow renewal ceremony in one of its gorgeous suites or magnificent function rooms with the new package ‘Meurice In Love’. My husband and I recently stayed here for our 5th wedding anniversary and I had to share my new amore, Le Meurice Hotel. I love this place, their attention to detail, the grand and small gestures, the design and ambiance is luxury with a capital L.
On arrival, couples can rendezvous in the renowned yet intimate setting of Le Bar 228. There, bartender William Oliveri – confidant with celebrities, royalty, and lovers alike for more than 35 years – will serve guests his latest creation ‘Meurice In Love’ as a welcoming start to the festivities. We certainly weren’t renewing our vows but were offered a glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne and non-alcoholic cocktail while our room was prepared as we had arrived an hour earlier than our checkin. How lovely, how polite. The setting is breath taking, the lounge/ bar and all the interior is so exquisitely grande but fused with contemporary. One of my favourite interior designers Philippe Stark had fused contemporary with traditional with a Dali infusion as Dali has a key role in the hotel. He used to stay there for a month a year! Wow the essence of art, culture and sophistication is divine. Walking to our room the hallways are scented with the most gorgeous fragrance and it’s details like this I just adore.
When we entered our suite the quality, finesse and detail hit both my husband and I. Over the years we’ve been lucky enough to stay at some incredible hotels around the world especially when I was presenting a wine TV series as we ended up in the worlds greatest vineyards and accompanying hotels, but Le Meurice is just something else. No wonder celebrities reportedly love this hotel, several UK newspapers noted the following famous guests: Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Kristen Stewart, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Anna Wintour, Mata Hari, Kate Moss, Justin Bieber.
The setting is opposite the Tuileries Garden and surrounded by the world’s most distinctive fashion houses on Rue St Honore, from our suite we could gaze at the Eiffel Tower. Our suite was so stunning we barely wanted to leave the room. They think of everything which I love: rose petals in the bathroom and suite, handwritten notes to enjoy your stay, scales to keep on top of your fitness regime while your away. The hotel also has a spa and fitness suite.
So going back to the ‘Le Meurice In Love’ package here’s a little more information:
For her, Spa Valmont by Le Meurice has condensed its legendary know-how and expert cosmetology into a tailor-made 3 day program of indulgent treatments to guarantee future brides an unparalleled beauty experience.
