Four Incredible New Paris Palace Hotels Bringing French Luxury to Life in 2022

Paris has recently welcomed some of the most anticipated & incredible Palace hotels in the city of love in the last year created by the industry’s biggest luxury brands including LVMH and Bulgari.

With stunning floor to ceiling windows, modernist and contemporary artwork, accompanied by the best views of the sparkling Eiffel Tower, these four incredible new Paris Palace hotels bring French luxury to life. 

Cheval Blanc Paris

This intimate five star hotel is one of Europes’s most anticipated openings of the year. Complete with the Dior Spa, this LVMH owned and designed hotel leaves no expense spared.

In the heart of Paris, a few steps away from the Louvre and the Marais, rises Cheval Blanc Paris with modernity as well as majesty. Just seventy two exceptional rooms and suites take on a winter-garden-like feel with bay-window views, placing the Seine river on prime display.

Cheval Blanc has unveiled its new contemporary haven in the heart of the City of Light. Paris architect Édouard François, known for his environmentally friendly buildings, led the building’s exterior architecture, including restoration of the historic facade, and helped create breathtaking vistas in every space. 

Located in the stunning building of La Samaritaine, it overlooks the Seine and has retained the elegance of the past combined with the grandeur of the future.

There is a 30 metre underground pool which features a changing mural of the Paris city scape outside, including visual transformations with the weather as well as custom made mosaic tiles, and walls of Bianco Sieve marble.

Cheval Blanc Paris’ restaurant and bar have jaw dropping views of the Seine, as well as the addition of Architect Peter Marino’s crimson chairs and banquettes that play against dramatic wooden walls inlaid with shells. 

The flooring in the main lobby incorporates four different stones in a design inspired by parquet de Versailles, offset by Vik Muniz’s contemporary 12-feet-high renditions of the Eiffel Tower, which are flanked by custom gold-and-bronzed screens. 

Bulgari Hotel Paris

“I don’t think there’s a need for another Parisian palace, what we did is actually to surprise people with an interior that could be something different… much more private, much more residential, much more exclusive.”

 – Antonio Citterio & Patricia Viel, Founders of Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel Interiors. 

Another highly anticipated opening, Bulgari Hotels are known globally for creating nothing less than exquisite sophisticated, modern yet elegant hotels. At the heart of the Golden Triangle of Paris, the Bulgari Hotel Paris is an experience designed not only for visitors to the city but also for the residents of Paris. 

Breaking the traditional codes of Parisian architecture, the elegant building of the Bulgari Hotel Paris enriches the 8th arrondissement with its modern and elegant yet bold contemporary style that blends the very best of both Italian and French craftsmanship and style. The Bulgari Hotel in Paris reopened in December 2021 with mostly Italian speaking staff, reintroducing its 76 rooms and suites that include amenities like terraces overlooking the internal patio, butler services, and private hammams and kitchens.

Its 123 guest rooms and 26 beautiful Suites including floor to ceiling windows are the work of Paris-based interior designer Charles Zana, known for creating the most sublime interiors, elegant and warm, imbued with a unique atmosphere.
