The Peninsula Paris celebrates a year of wins.
The striking property – which opened to much acclaim on 1 August 2014 – started their 2015 winning streak when it was recognised by Travel + Leisure’s 2015 It List as one of the ‘Best New Hotels Around the Globe’ . Revered lifestyle title Tatler soon celebrated Peninsula Paris’ stylish urban retreat within their annual Spa Guide whilst international editions of prestigious travel publication Conde Nast Traveler heralded the arrival of Peninsula Paris within their annual ‘Hot List’.
The spa continued to garner recognition as ‘France’s Best Hotel Spa’ at the World Spa Awards in Vietnam and was cited as ‘The Best Spa Hotel in Europe’ by Prix Villégiature.
Autumn was a bumper award season for the Parisian abode when it picked up ‘France’s Leading Luxury Hotel’ at the World Travel Awards and the discerning readers of Conde Nast Traveler rated it as the ‘Best Hotel in France’, ‘Fifth Best in Europe’ and as one of the ‘Top 50 in the World’ – an exceptional feat for a property, which at the time of voting submissions, was a mere year old.
In October came the Luxury Travel Guide Awards where Peninsula Paris gleaned ‘Luxury Grand Hotel of the Year’ and just last month it became the recipient of the award for ‘Renovation & Restoration’ by the respected European Hotel Design Awards. In addition 2015 also saw Peninsula Paris shortlisted as a finalist in the Spafinder Wellness Travel Awards and Wallpaper*’s Best Urban Awards.
Speaking about these varied awards wins and recognitions, General Manager Nicolas Béliard said “As we enter our second year we’re incredibly grateful to have been recognised so positively by both our valued guests and so many within the industry. We strive to ensure the most exceptional experience and offering both for all our guests: from those who live locally and come in for a coffee to those who stay with us for weeks on end from across the globe, it’s a delight to see our willing efforts being recognised.”
The latest and only European property in The Peninsula Hotels collection, The Peninsula Paris is the renaissance of a modern day palace. Housed in an exquisitely restored 19th century French building in the heart of the elegant 16th arondissement, it is just steps from the Arc de Triomphe and within walking distance of the city’s most exclusive luxury shopping, dining and cultural attractions. Steeped in history, it sets new standards in luxury design and comfort with spectacular skyline views.
From the building façade to the interior, elements painstakingly introduced by local architects and artisan craftsmen, include fine marble, rich wood panelling and gold leaf finishing. Each room offers a taste of timeless and modern aesthetic, combining distinct Parisian influences with Peninsula signature functionality. Its collection of six eclectic restaurant and bar options bring a new dimension of dining to the City of Light, whilst the award-winning Spa, offering tailored treatments by SATTVA by Simply Peninsula, ESPA and Biologique Recherche, allows guests to refresh and revitalise body and mind in sumptuous surrounds. Combining classic Parisian chic and world-class hospitality, The Peninsula Paris is a coveted location for memorable moments in the French capital.
