The project hasn’t been without delays, but now the end is in sight: La Samaritaine—the historic Paris department store overlooking the Seine—will be converted into the Cheval Blanc hotel by the end of 2018. Work continues to advance on the Art Déco landmark in the city center of Paris, which will also house a department store, offices, and social housing. When LVMH opens the luxury hotel, it’s expected to have 72 rooms and a Givenchy spa. There is a new Maison du Projet, located at 1 rue du Pont-Neuf, which sheds light on the 500 million euro project for visitors and locals alike.

Earlier this year, Cheval Blanc Hotels acquired La Résidence de la Pinède in St Tropez. Owned by the Delion family since 1985, this luxurious icon is home to the Michelin three-star La Vague d’Or restaurant. The ultra-luxury collection from LVMH also comprises Cheval Blanc hotels in Courchevel, Saint Bart’s, and Randheli in the Maldives.
