As you arrive at Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, its elegant façade brings to mind its legacy as the former home of Napoleon Bonaparte’s grandnephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte. Attentive staff and a pleasantly discreet check-in ensure that you receive the royal treatment right from the start.
In your room, commanding views of the Eiffel Tower and the River Seine hold you transfixed. The old-world elegance of the room, lovingly adorned with the fine work of craftsmen, is mirrored in the city that lies just below.
Here in the heart of Paris, the legendary Jardin des Tuileries is just around the corner, waiting for your attention, just as the exclusive fashion designers on Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V.
For now, you’re in the mood for a light meal and La Bauhinia is the just place for it. The exquisite glass cupola and Murano chandelier reflect the elegance of the meals prepared here. With such a promising introduction, you look forward to savouring the Cantonese cuisine at the renowned Shang Palace, the very first in Europe, and which earned 1 Michelin star in the Michelin Guide 2012.
Your hunger sated and your spirit invigorated, it’s time to immerse yourself in the City of Lights. The Pink Lady, Le Bar’s signature cocktail, is just the pick-me-up to start you off. Embark on a culinary voyage at L’Abeille, the hotel’s French gastronomic restaurant, 2 stars in the Michelin Guide 2012, to finish off your day.
After a night like that, you’re reluctant to leave. The city has left you enamoured. And it all began at the majestic Shangri-La Hotel, Paris.
