Having undergone nearly four years of refurbishment to the tune of €200 million, the Ritz Paris finally re-opens it doors from April 2016.

One of the most iconic hotels in the world, the Ritz is famous for being Ernest Hemingway’s old haunt during the 1920s, where he was said to have been joined by his contemporary F. Scott Fitzgerald. Today, Bar Hemingway is headed up by one of the world’s best bartenders, Colin Field.

Another famous patron of the hotel was Coco Chanel, who moved into a suite from 1934 until her death in 1971 – so it seems fitting that the Ritz is home to the first and only Chanel Spa in the world. The spa will be located in the new Ritz Club, which is also home to a pool, Turkish bath and sauna.

The rooms and suites have all been completely refurbished, with heated bathroom floors in all rooms and private terraces for all the suites. The classic design remains, but with modern amenities to ensure a stay at the Ritz is as comfortable and luxurious as it is a glimpse into Paris’ decadent past.
