Hotel Le Bristol unveils result of $130 million restoration

Hôtel Le Bristol unveiled the completion of Spa Le Bristol by La Prairie, two new signature suites and Epicure, the newly decorated three star Michelin restaurant formerly known as the Gastronomique.

The launch heralds the completion of a three year restoration program that included the launch of a new wing in 2009, and addition of restaurant Le 114 Faubourg. The entire restoration program was designed by hotel owner Maja Oetker, in close collaboration with 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 center, children’s area and a hairdressing salon. The spa is also working with five other brands including Organic Pharmacy, Russie Blanche, Maison D’Largon, Les Thermes Marins de Saint Malo and By Terry. The spa, set over three floors of the hotel, is bathed in natural light and opens out onto an indoor garden.


Two tailor-made signature treatments include the Private Bristol for Traveler, and Ritual Rose de Mai. Each has two bedrooms decorated with fabrics from the house of Canovas, with Aurora pink marble in the bathrooms. A water wall has also been put in the reception area.

The Imperial Suite spans approximately 3,444 square feet and, with its Versailles parquet, boasts its own dining room for up to 12 people overlooking the hotel’s French-style garden, a separate lounge decorated with Taillardat furniture and a 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.

The Honeymoon Suite offers a panoramic view of some of the capital’s monuments, including the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides and the Grand Palais. Furnished in typical 18th century style, the suite spans approximately 2,551 square feet and has four surrounding balconies, a lounge, a main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, and a second bedroom decorated in champagne and red shades.

Epicure is Hôtel Le Bristol’s newly christened three Michelin starred gastronomic restaurant. The restaurant now opens out onto the hotel’s French-style garden.
