Le Mandarin Oriental: For quiet luxury in between Shopping
Nestled just off the ultra-prestigious Rue Saint-Honoré, one of Paris’ most-sought-after shopping districts and lined with couture boutiques and high-end antique dealers, Le Mandarin Oriental is an ideal place to call home when you plan to spend your sojourn in the capital on a luxury shopping tour. It’s also right around the corner from Place Vendôme, home to some of the globe’s most-legendary jewelers, from Boucheron to Van Cleef & Arpels.

But back to the hotel itself– one so extraordinary that it, too, has earned Palace status. For anyone with a love of art-deco design and a preference for boldly modern codes, the Mandarin Oriental certainly fits the bill. The hotel blends art-deco and Asian design elements for a uniquely elegant effect bringing together East and West.
The split-level penthouse features an enormous outdoor deck area complete with panoramic terrace, romantic seating and soft lights, as well as a dining room, kitchen and bar. All guest rooms and suites are fitted with luxurious design details and amenities including plush divans, high-end silk bedding, Bang & Olufsen entertainment center and contemporary artwork.
Meanwhile, the enormous onsite spa measures 900 square metres and features private spa “suites” where visitors can indulge in total relaxation. A 14-metre lap pool, treatment cabins, Asian steamroom, and special facilities for couples make this an especially good choice for a honeymoon or engagement celebration.

Finally, curious gastronomes will delight in the hotel’s two-Michelin-starred restaurant, Sur Mesure, from French chef Thierry Marx. This is a table with an avant-garde, experimental spirit, blending the sensory experiences of sight, sound and taste to create a genuinely personal culinary experience.
