VIP transportation to and from Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris just became even more luxurious thanks to a new partnership with Jaguar Land Rover France that allows guests to ride in their choice of the all new Range Rover Autobiography or the Jaguar XJ Ultimate.
Both vehicles, provided to the resort by Marc Luini, the managing director of Jaguar Land Rover France, are available complimentary with exclusive hotel experiences like the Honeymoon offer and the VIP Girls Getaway, and are also available for private hire by all guests at Le Royal Monceau. For guests looking to experience the romance of Paris by moonlight, they can book the Paris By Night drive, in the luxury of the Jaguar XJ Ultimate limousine, with champagne and a chauffeur.
Omer Acar, the general manager of the Le Royal Monceau, considers the addition of the luxury cars an extension of the services already provided by the resort.
“Having these two beautiful cars waiting for our guests is really what Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris is all about: we are a next-generation palace for the 21st Century,” he said. “We already offer superb services, and being able to offer guests these ultimate performance cars is a wonderful bonus. For me, with their blue-chip heritage and a constant quest for excellence, Jaguar and Land Rover are really as close as you can get to a palace hotel on four wheels.”
For guests looking for functionality and luxury all wrapped into one, Land Rover has provided the keys to the new Range Rover Autobiography, an all-terrain vehicle boasting leather interiors and chrome plating. And for those who prefer classic luxury, the Jaguar XJ Ultimate, the “most beautiful limousine in Jaguar’s history,” is waiting to whisk guests away into the lively streets of Paris.
The collaboration also benefits current owners of the luxury vehicles. Members of Jaguar and Land Rover’s “X-Clusive” and “Territories” privilege programs have exclusive access to gastronomic, social and cultural events hosted by Le Royal Monceau, including pre-release screenings of new films at the hotel’s private cinema, cocktail mixology classes and wine tastings.
