Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris The arty Palace hotel

Designed by Philippe Starck to create an artistic atmosphere, this trendy palace is like no other. It features spectacular apartments, a breathtaking spa, three restaurants including a culinary experience from famous chef Nobu Matsuhisa and a summer terrace.

Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris has been reinvented and redesigned as a glamorous and luxury hotel. Since the reopening in 2010, after colossal renovations and a spectacular transformation by Philippe Starck, this legendary hotel (that has been home to the likes of Joseph Kessel, Walt Disney, and more recently Céline Dion), located just steps from the Arc de Triomphe, shook up the rather classic world of Parisian luxury hotels. 149 ultra-posh rooms and suites, art pieces, an often iconoclastic décor, a renewed sense of creativity and service, a vast festive and culinary offering and even a private movie theater… everything is designed to incite dreams, savoring and living to the full. In 2013, Le Royal Monceau was awarded the official Palace distinction as well as one Michelin star for its Italian restaurant Il Carpaccio.

Last year the famous chef Nobu Matsuhisa opened the exclusive restaurant Matsuhisa Paris. In a totally redesigned place with a contemporary and zen spirit, the restaurant offers a new culinary experience fusing savors from Japan to Peruvian cuisine. Matsuhisa Paris became an instant hit and a new trendy spot for both Parisians and demanding travellers who are looking for an exotic experience. Very animated at night, the restaurant is appreciated for professional lunch or dinner too. Le Bar Long is another place to enjoy cocktails and small plates in a casual atmosphere with, this summer, a terrace in association with Belvedere vodka where from lunch to dinner, Signature cocktails match both dishes from Nobu Matsuhisa and Pierre Hermé’s pastries.

Art is everywhere at Le Royal Monceau: the hotel’s gallery Art District presents shows and art installations all year round whereas The Art Concierge guides and advises guests on current art news and devises tailor-made plans. The 7th art is part of the Royal Monceau spirit with the unique Katara movie theater, where comfortably seated, guests could watch a movie every Saturday and Sunday nights!

Art and design are brought to the rooms and to the five-story hôtel particulier located at 41 avenue Hoche which houses several suites, including three presidential suites. The largest of these apartment-suites boasts a Turkish bath, fitness room with personal trainer and a highly elaborate home cinema and a direct access to the 1,500 sq.m “My Blend” by Clarins Spa.

More than a hotel, it is a residence in the full sense of the word, where everything is devoted to caring for guests who discuss their tastes with the Chef to determine what they want for lunch or dinner. True luxury lies in total freedom, in the power to fulfill one’s imagination. It’s clear that Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris meets this high demand for excellence.
