With so many luxury hotels to choose from, finding the right hotel is not easy, but for something really special, you won’t better the Royal Suite at the landmark Four Seasons Hotel George V in the heart of the city.
With a private terrace overlooking the historic art deco fountain of the Three Graces, the Royal Suites are adorned with 18th- and 19th-century fine art.
Crystal chandeliers glitter and huge vases of pale pink roses perfume the air.
The master bedrooms have spacious marble bathrooms with steam rooms, sauna and a walk-in dressing room.
This luxury comes at price and will set you back a cool $25,000 a night.
If you prefer something a little lower key, you can stay in the 200 square meters, Imperial Suite, at the Park Hyatt Vendome for only $20,000 a night.
With its high ceilings, dining room, kitchen and large living room, the suite includes its own spa with whirlpool bath, steam room shower and a built-in massage table.
Of course a trip to Paris would not be complete without experiencing exquisite French cuisine and once more we are spoiled for choice. With ten Michelin three star restaurants to choose from, selecting a couple of restaurants that stand out is no easy matter.
The first restaurant on the list is Le Meurice in the Hôtel Le Meurice opposite the Tuileries on Rue de Rivoli.
Chef Yannick Alléno creates menus according to his own distinctive style of refined, harmonious and healthy cuisine.
Whether you select the a la carte or the eight course degustation (tasting) menu, you will not be disappointed. The degustation menu will allow you a taste of a number of dishes as well as a matching wine to complement that particular dish.
Inspired by Salon de la Paix at the Palace of Versailles, the décor is unforgettable and the service like everything else at the restaurant is impeccable.
The second restaurant is Guy Savoy, named after the world renowned chef of the same name and ranked multiple times in the Restaurant Magazine Top 50 Restaurants in the world.
Once again choose from a rich a la carte menu or select the eight course set menu. Guy Savoy transforms traditional products into works of art and whilst some of his enduring classic dishes such as artichoke and black truffle soup and oysters in ice gelée are all the year round, the menu at this restaurant changes with the seasons.
As soon as you start to shop it will be clear why Paris is the city for those discerning visitors who appreciate luxury and style.
The Avenue des Champs Elysées is the most expensive street in Paris and one of the most expensive in the world and it is here and in the surrounding streets that you will find the most luxurious and exquisitely designed shops in the world.
Visit the legendary House of Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Cartier and at 31 Rue Cambon the classic Chanel store, with Coco Chanel’s apartment on the fourth floor.
The Chanel store opened in the 1920 and is a magnet for buyers with good taste. Entering the store is like entering a museum everything is white with discrete black chips, wood floors, marble stairs, and antique furniture, carefully placed so that the regulars find luxury in every corner.
The department stores in Paris are also beautifully decorated with the Galeries Lafayette, opened in 1895 being the grandest and most expensive. The grand architecture houses ten floors of fashion, accessories, cosmetics, home ware and food, centered on a stunning glass Byzantine cupola. The gourmet food market is worth a visit for its selection of exotic and hard-to-find products.
No trip would be complete without enjoying Paris’s vibrant and exciting nightlife.
Apart from spending time in one of its eight casinos there are a variety of private clubs, bars and night clubs to while the night away.
The legendary restaurant bar Black Calvados is a mythical Parisian nightspot, frequented by Paris’s rich and beautiful. Entrance to the bar is guarded by a suited doorman, with an entrance to the restaurant upstairs and the bar downstairs.
Don’t bother showing up before 11pm, because that is when the action really starts.
Another place worth a visit is the legendary VIP supper club Le Montana in the Saint Germain de Pres district, which attracts the rich and beautiful. By midnight Le Montana is filling up fast and by 2am it will be filled to capacity, with a guest list unmatched anywhere in Paris.
Nowhere in the world does chic and sophistication quite like Paris and if you are visiting on an unlimited budget, you will truly be able to appreciate everything that this magical city has to offer.
