Experience Unparalleled Elegance: An Insider’s Tour of LVMH’s Cheval Blanc Paris Hotel
At the heart of Paris, where the vibrant pulse of the city meets the timeless charm of Marais and île de la Cité, stands an emblem of sophistication – the Cheval Blanc Paris Hotel. This gem from the esteemed LVMH portfolio promises an immersive journey into the heart of French luxury.
A Majestic Passage through History and Luxury
Occupying the historic edifice of the La Samaritaine department store, Cheval Blanc Paris is a marvel of architecture, an echo of the bygone era reborn through the transformative magic of art and design. Thanks to the visionary prowess of Henri Sauvage, this iconic structure now stands as an unforgettable symbol of luxury, inviting you to experience a tale of history, art, and French elegance.
Embracing the LVMH Legacy
Bearing the LVMH insignia, Cheval Blanc Paris embodies the philosophy of the luxury conglomerate, seamlessly converging the allure of haute couture and sumptuous living into an enchanting symphony of opulence.
Your Personal Haven
The maison, with its 72 rooms, including 46 suites, is an exquisite tapestry of comfort and style. Each room is an intimate universe unto itself, adorned with bespoke furniture, artworks, and craft creations. The crowning glory, the Apartment on the top floor, is a pinnacle of elegance and excellence.
The wellness area of Cheval Blanc Paris, complete with a 30-meter pool, state-of-the-art fitness club, a Rossano Ferretti hair salon, and the gem – the Dior Spa Cheval Blanc – promises a sanctuary of rejuvenation. Housed in a winter garden that offers a breathtaking 360° view of the City of Light, luxury here is synonymous with tranquillity.
The culinary offerings at Cheval Blanc Paris redefine gastronomic innovation. The dynamic Limbar, a café by day, transitions into a lively bar by night. The Plénitude, under the stewardship of chef Arnaud Donckele and pastry chef Maxime Frédéric, mirrors the changing seasons with its menu. And for those longing for a taste of Italy or modern French cuisine, Langosteria and Le Tout-Paris are the places to be.
