Pure Decadence: The Mandarin Oriental, Paris is Belle of the Ball

By Chris Boyle

Los Angeles, California – Reported by Kelly Carter for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Already one of Paris’s most fashionable streets, Rue Saint-Honoré in the first arrondissement became even more stylish with the addition of the newly opened Mandarin Oriental. Mixing Parisian elegance with Oriental refinement, this eight-story building dates back to the 1930s and stands on a site once occupied by a Capuchin monastery. Romantic and exotic, the hotel encompasses the essence of the city, and its indoor garden has quickly become the place for Parisians and visitors to mingle.

Perfectly positioned in close proximity to the Garnier Opera, Tuileries Gardens and the Louvre, the Mandarin Oriental, Paris also offers some of the city’s most spacious accommodations within its 99 rooms and 39 suites. The crown jewel is the dazzling, 3,767-square-foot Royale Mandarin Suite that stretches over two floors. From its terrace, take in breathtaking, 360-degree views of the rooftops of Paris and its landmarks. Or gaze at the Eiffel Tower from the oversized soaking tub. The two-bedroom suite ($25,000 a night) also features a massive alabaster bar, pantry with butler entrance to a full kitchen, dining room, office, fitness room and steam room. Guests of this suite are also treated to a complimentary in-suite “Jiao Ting” massage for two.

Or journey to the Mandarin Oriental Spa, a two-level sanctuary that features private Spa Suites with their own steam shower and changing room, for the two-hour, 20-minute Mandarin Oriental Signature Spa Therapies that will leave serenity seekers in a state of bliss.

Paris’s dining bar is high and the Mandarin Oriental, Paris surpasses the mark. With only 42 seats and a tasting menu printed on Japanese rice paper, the two-Michelin-star Sur Mesure par Thierry Marx offers an exclusive and intimate lunch and dinner experience in a haute couture setting, plus delectable pairings from the wine cave courtesy of Chief Sommelier David Biraud.
