You know what you’re getting when you stay at the Mandarin Oriental, and their new hotel in Paris is no exception. Sumptuous design, intimate service and elegant atmosphere all come as standard. Set in the extremely fashionable rue Saint-Honoré surrounded by the best of Paris’ haute-couture boutiques, the Mandarin Oriental has swiftly become a favourite of the fashion crowd. The rooms are chic but comfortable touched with art deco flourishes, the restaurant, Sur Mesure by Thierry Marx, was awarded two Michelin stars, and Bar 8, the MO’s cocktail lounge, is frequented by the neighbourhood’s couture mavens. The oriental-inspired spa offers a specialised programme of treatments as well as Guerlain facials. Everything about the Mandarin Oriental is styled around luxury, service and experience which makes it such a reliable choice for those wanting to be pampered.
