The Ritz Paris is approaching its 2016 reopening after an unprecedented restoration. The legendary hotel will open its doors with luxurious suites, including 15 historic prestige suites, and rooms. Renowned interior architect Thierry W Despont is overseeing the restoration which will unveil three restaurants, three bars including famed Bar Hemingway, and gorgeous gardens and terraces with retractable roofs and floor heating to be enjoyed year-round. École Ritz Escoffier will benefit from a third demonstration kitchen and the historic Salon Proust with its wood-burning fireplace will offer Ritz afternoon tea. The hotel’s signature Spa will feature a new area dedicated to CHANEL skin care, an indoor pool and a modern fitness center, while a discreet tunnel will be available for completely private guest arrivals and departures.
