The former residence of Roland Bonaparte, which has been turned into one of the capital’s most romantic palace hotels, Shangri-La Hotel, Paris is an ideal venue for engagement, wedding celebrations, and vows renewals.
Paris is undoubtedly the most romantic city in the world. So where better to celebrate your love than in one of its finest hotels? Especially since the historic Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, built in 1896 for Napoleon Bonaparte’s grand-nephew, Roland Bonaparte, always goes the extra mile. Each of the hotel’s prestigious salons with 7 meter-high ceilings has its own unique atmosphere. From salons filled with references to France’s Napoleonic history on the first floor, to the large Louis XIV-style salon with its sumptuous crystal chandeliers, the Empire-inspired family room or the Dining room dedicated to the glory of the Emperor, there’s something for each wedding desire. The same goes for the dishes created by Michelin-starred chef Christophe Moret, who joined the palace hotel’s teams in January 2015. This talented chef has worked in the capital’s most prestigious hotels and now oversees all of Shangri-La Hotel, Paris’ culinary enterprises: the gastronomic L’Abeille restaurant, which is now open every Thursday and Friday for lunch and serves an exquisite menu of truly refined dishes to enjoy as you admire the garden views; Le Shang Palace, the only Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant in France; and La Bauhinia, a Franco-Asian eatery. Want to spend some quality time with a loved one? Head for the hotel’s Spa with its wonderful 15-meter-long swimming pool bathed in natural light, before relaxing with a Tchi Drink – the detox beverage of the moment – on its tree-lined terrace. The hotel’s rooms and suites enjoy breathtaking views over the capital’s most beautiful monuments, including the Eiffel Tower – perfect for those magical Paris moments. With more than 200 marriage proposals a year, the Shangri-La Hotel, Paris is without doubt the most romantic palace hotel in the city!
