The most artistic 5-star Palace hotel in Paris and the Grand Palais have partnered to launch an exclusive VIP Art package for experience-seeking travellers.

Le Royal Monceau - Raffles Paris has long established its reputation as a top-notch destination for art lovers, with its private Art Gallery, state-of-the-art cinema theatre, vibrant Art Bookstore, an in- house Art Concierge service and extensive private Art Collection. It was therefore natural to collaborate with the Grand Palais, the iconic Parisian monument of the Réunion des Musées Nationaux, located on the Champs Elysées. Some of the biggest exhibitions are showcased at the Grand Palais and they also host major events such as FIAC and Paris Photo.

This VIP package, available only to Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris guests, gives private access to visit the Grand Palais alone on Tuesdays (closing day of the museum), offering a unique way to discover the exhibitions of ‘Carambolages’, ‘Seydou Keïta’, or ‘Monumenta by Huang Yong Ping’. Last but not least, art-loving guests will delight in an exclusive lunch within the museum.

“With this new package, we are heightening our cultural expertise and insider access to the Paris art scene to offer our guests a once-in-a-lifetime ‘emotional luxury’ experience,” said Mr. Aaron Kaupp, General Manager at Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris.

This VIP Art Package will be available from 5,500€ (22,820 AED) and include accommodation in a Prestige Suite (for a minimum stay of two nights), private access and exclusive lunch at the Grand Palais on Tuesday, daily breakfast at the hotel, car transfers, two massages at the Spa My Blend by Clarins and unlimited access to the gym and the swimming pool.

LE ROYAL MONCEAU – RAFFLES PARIS reopened in 2010 as the most exciting 5-star luxury hotel in the City of Lights, after a dramatic and complete two-year transformation by designer Philippe Starck. The hotel has 149 luxurious rooms and suites and is just minutes from the Arc-de-Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées in Paris' 8th arrondissement. At Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris, art is omnipresent, with an exclusive service of Art Concierge, an Art Bookstore, a private Art Gallery, a 99-seat cinema theatre and an impressive private art collection. Food and drink are an art form here too – from the buzz of the Long Bar on the ground floor, to the two restaurants, ‘La Cuisine’ for gourmet French cuisine and ‘Il Carpaccio’ Michelin-star Italian restaurant. Not to be missed are the delicious pastries, macarons and chocolates by Pierre Hermé, considered by Vogue magazine as the ‘Picasso of pastry’. Art, decoration, design and a fashionable selection: Le Royal Eclaireur is an exclusive destination. The 1,500sqm Spa My Blend by Clarins is an award-winning white paradise, with the longest swimming pool in a Paris hotel.
