The Peninsula Paris’ Secret Table – a once in a lifetime dining experience paired with their private night tour is bound to make this one of the most incredible experiences for that special occasion.
Ah, Paris! Perhaps Maurice Chevalier said it best in his opening speech in the immortal film Love in the Afternoon: “This is the city Paris, France. It is just like any other city… except for two little things. In Paris, people eat better. And, in Paris, people make love, well, perhaps not better but certainly more often.”
Now, of course, it is important to remember that making love meant something a little different back in 1957 than it does today but the sentiment remains. There is no denying or debating it – Paris is the city of love.
For centuries, Royals, aristocrats and yes, even us peasants, have flocked to Paris for special occasions. So much so that if Paris had to impose a tax on proposals or anniversaries, we suspect that France would become the wealthiest country in the world.
But, with as many love-tourist (if we can coin a phrase) that can be found in the French capital at any given time, the number of things to do and places to stay at is equally overwhelming. That being said, there is one experience that truly stands out head and shoulders above the rest.
Affectionately referred to as the Grande Dame of Paris, the Peninsula Hotel (formally the Hotel Majestic) has become a landmark of style and refinement. But above all, it offers one of the best locations available in Paris with virtually every monument a stone’s throw away.
Well, this very special hotel, with its very special level of service has created a very (yes, you guessed it) special experience. Paris might be a very vibrant city by day but she truly comes alive in all her magnificence at night. Sure, you can stroll the banks, pushing through the crowds. Or, you could let the Peninsula Paris make your special evening that much more special.
Paris’ youngest ‘Palace’-certified hotel has put together an exclusive night-time tour of the city from the comfort of their custom Rolls-Royce Phantom. Your evening starts off with a glass of champagne at the Trocadero. From here, you will be taken to the Eiffel Tower after which you will travel to the iconic Pont Alexandre III where the views of the Place des Invalides and the world-famous Le Grand Palais are simply to die for!
Next, your chauffeur will continue along the banks of the Seine and take you and your loved one to the Place de la Concorde. After spending some time at the landmark, your Rolls-Royce will continue to the Arc de Triomphe before returning to the hotel.
To finish off the evening we highly recommend booking the Peninsula Paris’ Secret Table dinner. Possibly one of the most romantic, not to mention one of the most instagrammable, experiences in the whole of Paris.
With uninterrupted views of the glittering Eiffel Tower and the Sacré-Coeur of Montmartre, this exceptionally private space takes a ‘romantic dinner under the stars’ to a whole new level. Other than the otherworldly views and fantastic food, the dinner includes wine pairings devised by the hotel’s sommelier as well as personalized butler service.
Just do keep in mind that the Peninsula Paris’ Secret Table experience has to be booked at least 72 hours in advance so be sure to take that into consideration when you are planning your trip.
Although the two experiences can be booked separately, we highly recommend this as a package! It is the kind of experience that simply cannot be forgotten and will be the highlight of your trip… or the unmatched setting to pop the big question!
