    Hotel le Bristol, the first hotel to be rated as a Palace in France, has unveiled the completion of Spa Le Bristol by La Prairie, two new signature suites and Epicure, the newly decorated 3 star Michelin restaurant, formerly the ‘Gastronomique’. The two new suites – the ‘Imperial’ and the ‘Honeymoon’ will be two of Paris’s most dramatic. The launch heralds the completion of a €100million three year restoration programme which included the launch of a new wing in 2009 and addition of restaurant Le 114 Faubourg. The entire restoration programme has been designed by hotel owner Mrs Maja Oetker in close collaboration with famous architect Pierre-Yves Rochon.

    Spa Le Bristol by La Prairie includes eight beauty treatment cabins, a Russian Wet Room with the first affusion shower in Paris, a Turkish Bath for women only, a double VIP suite, a fitness centre, children’s area and a hairdressing salon. The spa is also working with five other famous brands including Organic Pharmacy, Russie Blanche, Maison D’Largon, Les Thermes Marins de Saint Malo and By Terry.

    The spa is set over three floors of the hotel, is bathed in natural light and opens out onto a beautiful indoor garden. A welcoming water wall in the reception area invites guests to enter a timeless cocoon of wellbeing and beauty in typical French-style luxury. Two tailor-made signature treatments include – Private Bristol for Traveler and Ritual Rose de Mai.

    The two new signature suites will be some of the hotel’s most iconic. Each has two bedrooms and are decorated with superb quality fabrics from the house of Canovas with Aurora pink marble in the bathrooms.

    The Imperial Suite spans 320m²/3444ft² and, with its impressive Versailles parquet, boasts its own dining room for up to twelve people overlooking the hotel’s French-style garden, a separate lounge decorated with the famous Taillardat furniture and a large walk-in wardrobe in the main bedroom. The second bedroom features a lounge area, bath, separate shower and double washbasin. The suite also has its very own hamman.
