Serious April showers mean a generous blossoming of May flowers, and where better to appreciate them than La Terrasse? In the newly opened courtyard garden at Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris, tables from restaurants La Cuisine and Il Carpaccio are set up in the sunshine- a calm and leafy space far from the city’s bustle.
And if you’re looking for over-the-top opulent accommodations in Paris, look no further than Privé- the hotel’s new collection of luxury suites, including three Presidential Suites. Designed to resemble exclusive private residences, the suites come with top-notch service and all the five-star comforts of the hotel (like the beautifully-designed movie theater). Recently debuted, these suites are accessed by a discreet and secure entrance on the avenue Hoche. They also offer private access to the Philippe Starck-designed Spa My Blend by Clarins. The largest suites also have their very own home cinema, hammam and gym, with a personal trainer on hand to customize work-outs. A private florist creates daily flower arrangements, and a personal chef whips up bespoke meals based on your preferences.
