Grand Palais Suite LA RÉSERVE HOTEL AND SPA PARIS 8TH ARRONDISSEMENT
Originally built for the family of the Duke de Morny in 1854, La Réserve’s regal mansion is a welcoming respite from the bustling city. It has abundant outdoor space where you can enjoy a healthy meal in the sunshine— La Réserve is known for its focus on wellness and incredible spa — as well as the two-Michelin-starred Le Gabriel, where you can indulge in the finest French cuisine. Designed in Belle Époque style and taking inspiration from its namesake, the iconic Grand Palais, the suite is filled with art, architecture and antiques celebrating France’s history. Even with authentic Napoleon III furniture and original artwork, the splendid decor never strays too far into the past thanks to modern pieces and sleek mirrors. The large suite has two lounges, each with a mirrored bar, wine cellar filled with the finest vintages and two bedrooms. Naturally, there’s a beautiful view of the domed roof of the Grand Palais from the balcony. L’Art de Vivre France and fragrance are inextricably linked—many of the world’s best-loved scents come from its perfumers, and its lands produce some of the most high-quality raw ingredients on earth. It’s fitting that La Réserve can arrange for you to make a custom fragrance with one of the city’s top noses, who will help you craft your perfect scent with your favorite ingredients.
