The katara suite offers guests a quiet respite from the bustling city of Paris while still enjoying the view.

The Katara Suite on the top floor of the Peninsula Paris has breathtaking views of the City of Light from its 2,153-square-foot private rooftop garden. Accessible only from a private staircase within the suite, the terrace gives guests a 360-degree look at the city, including iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Arc-de-Triomphe.

The 1,991-square-foot, one-bedroom suite has a lavish living room, a dining area for six, a full-service kitchen and two dressing rooms to boot. Nice Touch: There’s also an 893-square-foot, full-length balcony where guests can take in the views.

Those staying in the Katara Suite are encouraged to experience customized experiences, such as a private rooftop dinner under the stars, a live band performance or a private rooftop screening. Nice Touch: VIPs can access the suite via private elevator directly from the parking garage with their own room key, so there is no need to enter the lobby if they choose not to be seen.

Also popular with both locals and tourists is the hotel’s Cantonese restaurant, Lili, where guests can dine on dim sums and seasonal dishes while enjoying a cup of tea made from one of the more than 20 types of tea leaves offered.
