Royal Monceau 5 stars hotel in Paris /Pierre Hermé

I had the pleasure to guide last week Pierre Hermé  and his companion Barbara Rhil (will write a post about her shop in Paris later…). They are very charming and interesting  people.

By the way, Pierre Hermé opened a new shop 39, avenue de l’Opéra devoted to macaroons and chocolate only and he signs all the pastries and desserts in new Royal Monceau, so let’s talk about it !

If you want the ultimate top luxury experience in Paris, close to Champs-Elysées, in a contemporary and very refined atmosphere, Royal Monceau is made for you. I had the pleasure to visit it with Alexandre, the sales manager,   just before  it opened to the public mid-september, after 2 years work and a drastic transformation by acclaimed french designer Philippe Stark.

5 stars devoted to pleasure of the senses :

touch and admire the noble material all around you : natural leather only in order to obtain a unique patina with time,

precious wood that makes you feel like emboarding on a chic cruise in the 30’s with amazing vintage cristal chandelier.

Pierre Hermé for pastry chef  (I think he’s an artist and a genius !) and extraordinary italian restaurant alreay celebrated by very demanding parisian gastronomic critics !

You’ll find also a contemporary art gallery, with Basquiat drawings exhibition right now, plus an art bookstore specialised in multiples and  books by artists with vintage, and an Art concierge ready to help you in exploring Paris art life.

The hotel commisionned artist special works, like a painted ceiling in the restaurant by Stéphane Calais, a surrealist over-scale tea-pot by Joana Vasconcelos in the open courtyard, meanwhile a pack of deers carved in wood by a russian artist surprise you in the stairs !

Last but not least : there is a nice acoustic guitar in each room ! and, unique in Europe :  a private movie theatre, for 200 people, with the ultimate technology and comfort,  is located discretly inside the hotel ! !

The whole place just blew my mind ! Totally ParisDeluxe&Arty !
