Didier Le Calvez Leaves La Réserve Hotels, Replaced by Jean-Luc Naret

La Reserve Paris

After nearly a year and a half at the helm of La Réserve Group, Didier Le Calvez has moved on from his CEO position. Under his leadership, La Réserve Paris was awarded “palace” status—a prestigious ranking bestowed upon la crème de la crème of French hotels (the 10 Paris palaces also include Four Seasons George V, Le Bristol, and the Plaza Athénée).

In addition to his role as CEO of La Réserve, Michel Reybier’s hospitality company that also comprises elegant hotels in Geneva and the French Riviera, Le Calvez also served as general manager of La Réserve Paris. Prior to that, he made a name for himself as president and managing director of Le Bristol Paris, and COO of the Oetker Collection. Le Calvez will now be launching his own hospitality consulting company with his wife Olivia, while also managing their hotels on the Ile de Ré: Hôtel de Toiras and la Villa Clarisse.

Jean-Luc Naret has been recruited to replace Le Calvez at La Réserve Paris. Naret has had a long career in the luxury hospitality world; he previously served as general manager at One&Only Reethi Rah in the Maldives and also the One&Only Le Saint-Géran in Mauritius. Prior to that, he worked for Jumeirah, the Trianon Palace Versailles and the Michelin Guides.
