Paris, July 19th 2007 -Five years after it’s opening, Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, an undisputed contemporary palace in the French capital, is opening new luxury suites, and a new improved and extended Spa.
A total of 5 million Euros has been invested in this ambitious project, which primarily involved the creation of two new Presidential Suites and the extension of the existing Spa.
Thanks to this project, Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, a leader in its field, confirms it high-calibre positioning, which is perfectly in keeping with the luxurious criteria assigned to the Park Hyatt brand, the Hyatt Group’s five-star category.
"In-suite Spa": a trend-setting, well-being concept for Presidential Suites
Anxious to provide exceptional services to a discerning, luxury clientele, Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme offers next-generation Presidential Suites known as the “In-suite Spa”, where the benefits of a spa are an integral part of the hotel experience.
Ed Tuttle, the American designer of Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, took on the task of overseeing this improvement work to ensure that the same modern design, so characteristic of this unique hotel, was respected. The goal was to design suites that not only provided maximum comfort, but also have a distinctive feature, hence the idea of a Spa bathroom with a hot tub (balneotherapy), a hammam shower and a massage area, all classic elements designed to ensure well-being. This concept has already achieved great success in Park Hyatt hotels in Asia.
Each of the Presidential Suites measures more than 200 sq m and is decorated in a unique style that is both elegant and refined, making use of such luxury materials as mahogany and oak, pierre de Paris and fabrics that include chenille silk.
· The Imperial Suite (250 sq m) is located on the 2nd floor, the noble floor in Haussmanian buildings, has very high ceilings (3.6 metres) and
boasts a splendid 85 sq m living room.
· The Vendôme Suite (200sq m) has a mansard roof and is located on the 5th floor; it also boasts a 60 sq m balcony overlooking the rue de la
Paix, with an outstanding view of the Vendôme column.
· The existing Duplex suite will be refurbished in autumn 2007. It will offer views of the Vendôme column, the Eiffel Tower and even
Notre-Dame de Paris, and will be a genuine Parisian apartment spread over two floors, the 6th and 7th, with two balconies.
Personalized and prestigious luxury services
In order to ensure that guests enjoy a stay under the best possible conditions, several original services are available for guests of the Presidential Suites:
· In addition to the delights on offer at the Pur’Grill, the gastronomic restaurant at Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, guests staying in the Presidential
Suites will be able to design their own made-to-measure cuisine that is served in their suite in the presence of the hotel’s Executive Chef,
Jean-François Rouquette, or his team.
· A barman from Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, where the Bar has been classed among the five best hotel bars in Europe, will be on hand in the
suite to prepare house cocktails during evening dinners or private parties.
· A dedicated assistant will be provided to take charge of organising guests’ stay.
· A special “spa ritual” (steam bath, face and body treatments, and massages) will be recommended for a pleasant respite in the intimacy of
the suite’s Spa bathroom.
The extended and improved 250 sq m Spa is becoming a real centre for relaxation
After six months of improvements, the Spa at Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome has been rejuvenated to offer exceptional aesthetic appeal and comfort. After being extended, it now covers 250 sq m on the hotel's basement floor, all of which is dedicated to well-being and relaxation. This includes the creation of a balneotherapy and whirlpool area, a hammam, a sauna, a gym fitted with the latest high-tech equipment and treatment booths, including one designed for couples.
The pleasures of Californian, Swedish or Thai messages, relaxing hot-stone or revitalizing treatments, gumming or wraps are offered to customers for their enjoyment.
Blaise Mautin, the hotel's perfumer, has created a delicate fragrance with notes of East Indian lemongrass, eucalyptus and Brazilian orange that is sprayed throughout the Spa, as well as a massage oil in the same vein. To stimulate the senses, each treatment will be associated with a perfume, a massage oil, and a light and musical ambience that is customized to meet the customer’s wishes.
The Spa is in partnership with the Payot brand.
With its soft and warm decoration, consisting of Paris stone, mahogany and an onyx waterwall, the Spa has been transformed into a real sanctuary that is reserved exclusively for use by hotel guests.
