Have you decided to go all out for your next Parisian vacation? A place known for its luxurious offers, Paris is full of top-end activities that will leave you in the lap of luxury! Here’s how to enjoy a luxury holiday in Paris!
SLEEP IN A PALACE
While not the actual homes of French kings, palaces will definitely make you feel like royalty. Offering the highest-caliber accommodations in Paris, these stunning hotels provide exceptional service and a variety of luxurious options. They feature all the amenities of a 5-star hotel (rooms at least 15 x 17 feet / 24 square meters, an en-suite bathroom, English-speaking employees, 24/7 reception, valet parking, concierge services, and air conditioning). Additionally, they must include certain elements that distinguish them from the rest including an on-site gastronomic restaurant (often Michelin-starred), exceptional customer service, and, in certain cases, a spa.
With prices starting at 1,000€ / night, staying here doesn’t come cheap. However, you get what you pay for, and, in this case, it will definitely be well worth the price. For the perfect Parisian holiday, book a stay at one of the classic palaces, such as Le Brisol, Le Meurice, the Four Seasons Hotel George V, the Plaza Athénée, or try one of the newer one palaces, such as the Shangri-La Paris or the Mandarin Oriental.

BOOK EXCLUSIVE ACTIVITIES
In addition to staying in a palace, you can add to your luxury vacation by booking exclusive or original activities. Make sightseeing even more memorable with a private tour with a guide who will help you fully understand the significance of each site. Private tours are recommended for the most popular tourist attractions, such as the Eiffel Tour, the Louvre, or the Musée d’Orsay, as there are often extremely long lines for these activities.
For a more unique experience, you can book an original tour. Take a ride in an old Parisian car as your private guides you through Paris’s old streets and main spots, or enjoy a shopping spree along the Montaigne or Place Vendome with a personal shopper.
RELAX IN A HIGH-END SPA
When treating yourself to a luxury vacation, a trip to the spa is a must. Paris is home to a number of top-notch spas where you can receive a massage, facial and skin treatments, aromatherapy, access to a fitness center and on-hand personal trainer, and pool and sauna access. Paris spas tend to focus on a theme and many are housed in palaces, allowing easy access without having to leave your hotel. Traveler favorites include the George V Spa (Four Seasons George V), Institut Dior (Plaza Athénée), Spa Anne Sémonin (Le Bristol), and Spa Valmont (Le Meurice).
EAT IN A MICHELIN-STAR RESTAURANT
As the capital of cuisine, Paris is home to some of the finest restaurants in the world, including several Michelin-star eateries. No luxury Parisian holiday is complete without enjoying a meal at one of these establishments. Every year, the legendary French company Michelin publishes a restaurant guide awarding stars to those deemed the best from 1 star (a great establishment) to 3 stars (la crème de la crème).
While the guide lists restaurants from several countries, France is home to the largest number of Michelin-star restaurants in the world, many of which are in Paris. For your luxury vacation, dine at some of the finest establishments, such as Tour d’Argent, Jules Vernes (located in the Eiffel Tower), Guy Savoy, or L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon.
