Rooms and suites
The hotel unveils its 71 rooms and 71 suites, which have been enlarged and totally revamped. Decorated in delicate pastel hues, with exquisite woodwork, most of them have a shaded private terrace offering a view of the hotel’s magnificent French-style gardens. The names and the decor of the 15 Prestige suites recall famous guests who stayed at the hotel in times past, including Marcel Proust, Coco Chanel and the Duke of Windsor.
‘Chanel au Ritz’
Besides a neoclassical swimming pool, ultramodern fitness centre, sauna and hammam, the Ritz Club now houses a Chanel spa, which has been named ‘Chanel au Ritz’ in homage to the great fashion designer, who lived at the Ritz for nearly 30 years.
Reception rooms and restaurants
Nine reception rooms ranging in size from 22 m² to 116 m² can accommodate 10 to 500 people for a variety of events: meetings, talks, catwalk shows, cocktail parties and seated dinners. What’s more, the Salon d’Eté and the Salon César Ritz open on to spacious terraces. In fine weather, the Grand Jardin offers 880 m² of green space in which to host unforgettable receptions in an idyllic setting.
Chef Nicolas Sale has taken over the Michelin-starred restaurantL’Espadon, where he provides a highly inventive take on classic French cooking. The patio has been transformed into a pleasant winter garden with a retractable glass roof and houses the Bar Vendôme, an intimate setting in which to enjoy a quiet lunch or a glass of champagne.
The Escoffier cookery school
The Ritz Escoffier School has been extended, and now has a third kitchen alongside its newly renovated cookery and pastry making labs. A team of accomplished chefs will teach courses on gourmet French cooking in French and English to amateurs as well as professional chefs. Private bespoke courses can also be organized to initiate corporate event attendees into the art of wine tasting, pastry and cocktail making.
