A genuine palace with its four reception rooms and grand stairway, the prestigious hotel on the avenue d’Iéna is famous for its dream décor. Most of the Empire style rooms and suites designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon have spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower. The hotel is also a true temple of gastronomy with no fewer than three restaurants supervised by Executive Chef Christophe Moret: L’Abeille, awarded 2 stars by t he Michelin Guide; the Shang Palace (Chef Samuel Lee Sum) – the only starred Chinese restaurant in France; La Bauhinia, which serves French and South-East Asian inspired dishes for lunch and dinner. Bold in its approach, Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, presents an appealing Green & Healthy offer that includes a 100% Green Dinner at La Bauhinia on the first Thursday of every month – a first for a Paris hotel restaurant.

And why not combine well-being and culinary pleasure with a 100% Vegan Afternoon Tea? Pastry Chef Michaël Bartocetti has concocted light, healthy lactose free desserts that share one essential quality: deliciousness! And the B-Green breakfast provides plenty of energy: its menu is free of gluten and lactose, but high on superfoods – the perfect way to set yourself up for a busy day exploring the museums that surround the hotel! In the evening, Le Bar Botaniste pays tribute to Roland Bonaparte, who famously created the largest herbarium in the world in his time. The bar presents a selection of cocktails based on fresh plants and rare liqueurs. Then how can we write about well-being without mentioning Chi, The Spa? At Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, customers enjoy a dip in the magnificent 15 meter long mosaic swimming pool, together with exclusive treatments by The Organic Pharmacy, a distinguished British brand producing organic, natural products that rejuvenate both the skin and the mind.

Here, the Green & Healthy spirit is far more than a mere fad: it has become a philosophy that the subtle botanist Roland Bonaparte himself would surely have appreciated!
