Ultimate luxury in the heart of Paris

Ultimate luxury in the heart of Paris

sleep May 24, 2019 04:58


Mandarin Oriental, Paris will launch a 430-square-metre Parisian Apartment suite, one of the largest suites in Paris, this summer.

Located on the sixth floor with magnificent views, the spacious new Haussmann style suite is being designed by the acclaimed French agency Gilles & Boissier as a large single level chic Parisian apartment, overlooking the hotel’s lush inner garden and Rue Saint-Honore.

There will be four elegant bedrooms and bathrooms, an expansive reception area, bright dining room and fully equipped kitchen. For flexibility, the suite can be divided into two connecting two-bedroom suites.

“The apartment is designed to make the most of the natural light and will offer guests a comfortable, calm and elegant space. It mixes design codes and influences, like a free and daring Parisienne of today would do,” explains Dorothee Boissier, “It incorporates the codes of the Haussmann style as much as those of ArtDeco. The 1900s mouldings sit beautifully with wooden architectural features reminiscent of the 1930s”.

“The blonde parquet flooring, inspired by the Herringbone style, will be partly covered with thick carpets depicting geometric patterns. The leather-covered pivot doors evoke memories of spectacular antique Chinese panels, while the furniture, custom designed by Patrick Gilles, will be made from a variety of different types of wood and silky fabrics” she adds.

French agency Gilles & Boissier decorated Mandarin Oriental in Marrakech five years ago.

“They asked us to create this apartment a kind of “signature” suite. What’s important to us is to be very Parisian. Also, we really wanted to design a sort of Parisian apartment that says I’m Parisian. When you’re asked to do a suite and it has to be even better than the others, you have to be able to propose something different. I think the freedom of this apartment also comes, from the freedom to use very different materials. We created framed ceilings with more Thirties-style motifs; we created panels lined with leather, with embroideries that reference Cocteau; very light and very dark brushed woods, very lacquered woods  materials that I would say are very discreet and comfortable,” continues Boissier.

For this newest suite, landscape designers Christophe Gautrand & Associates have imagined an authentic 230-square-metre Parisian terrace inspired by French gardens. Making full use of the private terrace’s spaciousness, the designers will create several different environments, each with their own special ambience that can be adapted easily to changing desires and seasons. It will be a lush, peaceful haven in the middle of the vibrant Saint Honore district.

Renaissance Hotels, part of Marriott International, recently announced its continued brand evolution with the “Discover This Way” marketing campaign that reinforces the brand’s promise of delivering the unexpected.

To celebrate, Renaissance Hotels around the world helped guests uncover the soul of local neighbourhoods as part of the 8th annual Global Day of Discovery.

This year’s annual celebration, which took place at 160 hotels in more than 35 countries, spotlighted the Renaissance Hotel Navigator, which helps guests to discover destinations like a local by handpicking discoveries that cannot be found in a guidebook.

“We have been on a mission to continue to evolve what Renaissance Hotels offers today, and this year’s Global Day of Discovery and new ‘Discover This Way’ campaign officially marks a new era for the brand,” George Fleck, vice president of Global Brand Marketing & Management, Renaissance Hotels said in the press release.

Push Puttichai and Andy Kong, director of Brand & Marketing, Asia Pacific, Marriott International

“Today’s travellers want to feel like they’ve experienced the DNA of the neighbourhood in the destination they are visiting and make the most of their trip. With help from our This Way neighbourhood partners, we are committed to giving them something a little bit unexpected every step along their journey.”

Developed and produced by creative agency Venables Bell + Partners with the Renaissance Hotels’ marketing team and based on consumer insights, the “Discover This Way” campaign was inspired by the idea that every trip can be a tale. From the brand’s surprising approach to design, to its original take on cocktails and its team of local Navigators, Renaissance Hotels aim to make guests make the most of every stay.

To celebrate the launch of the campaign in Thailand, a noted archaeologist helped guests of Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong Hotel to explore street art in Chalerm La Park, Lakshmi Shrine at Gaysorn Village, neon night markets and other local discoveries. Upon returning to the hotel, guests were welcomed by a Thai Night Festival featuring the destination’s arts and culture scene, complete with an exclusive performance by Thai celebrity actor, model and DJ Push Puttichai.
