A “MADE IN CALIFORNIA” SUMMER AT THE PENINSULA PARIS
The Peninsula Paris eliminates your need to cross the Atlantic this summer for a taste of the California life with a nod to wellness, a menu overhaul, sunny decor updates and nightlife offerings that rival that of the City of Angels. Inspired by its sister hotel in Beverly Hills, The Peninsula Paris’ La Terrasse Kléber will be transformed into a hotspot this summer that echos West Coast locales.
La Terrasse Kléber will embrace the West Coast vibe with updated decor including tropical plants, surfboards and decorative, acid-coloured features, all with the aim of recreating a California party atmosphere, away from the clamour of the city.
Golden State chefs are known to be pioneers when it comes to gastronomic developments in healthy eating with their use of local, organic ingredients. David Codney, Executive Chef at The Peninsula Beverly Hills, embraces this approach and in collaboration with Christophe Raoux, Executive Chef at The Peninsula Paris (and winner of the Meilleur Ouvrier de France award for leading chefs), will present the latest California culinary trends at the hotel.
Under the guidance of Chef Codney, the menus at Le Lobby and La Terrasse Kléber will adopt the healthy eating principles much-loved by Californians. New breakfast offerings for guests will include an Açaí bowl, a Crumpet with avocado and egg or a Cholesterol-free omelette. The dishes are designed to treat guests’ tastebuds while teasing eyes through their perfect presentation. Accompanying this early-morning power food, a choice of cold-pressed juices with detox properties, such as a green smoothie made from green fruit and vegetables will also be made available.
At sunset, the menu will turn to another wave of unique, California-inspired dishes: Nettle velouté with fresh almond and nut oil; Obsiblue prawn with kale, coral lentils and pomegranate vinaigrette, to name two. These healthy, seasonal dishes can be paired with a selection of biodynamic Californian wines. To end the meal on a sweet note, desserts offerings will include Raspberry red velvet cake with balsamic vinegar, and a Fresh fruit nage with birch juice.
There is no need for night owls to finish their California adventure at the conclusion of dinner. Guests can continue the evening festivities in the magnificent wood-panelled surroundings of Le Bar Kléber or its outside terrace, sipping brightly coloured cocktails such as the Marlon, an amazingly fresh and spicy tequila-based creation with lime and red pepper notes.
Throughout the summer, guests will also be able to enjoy a playlist of California-inspired lounge and electro-lounge sounds. From 6:00pm on Tuesdays to Saturdays, there will also be live music hosted by the hotel’s resident DJs.
Guests searching for that perfect California glow will be able to enjoy many new beauty and wellness offerings this summer. Sébastien Besnier, the establishment’s star hairstylist, will offer a special California-inspired hair treatment designed to mimick a sun-kissed effect. The Californian offer will also include a regenerating, moisturising and repairing mask to replenish and add shine to your locks – perfect preparation for summer holidays.”
Therapists will devote themselves to holistic beauty treatments, including the natural-product-based 24K Gold Age-Defying facial, which promises a Hollywood glow. Detoxifying fresh fruit juices and a selection of healthy snacks will be made available before and after treatments, to make your Peninsula Spa moment complete. A Kure Bazaar nail colour bar will also be set up at La Terrasse Kléber every Saturday and Sunday afternoon, offering an unmatched palette of rainbow nail colours.
Lastly, LA-style electric BMW bikes will allow guests to explore the streets of the capital as they take reconciliation of mind and body outside the walls of the hotel.
Finally, to further celebrate the Californian summer in Paris, guests are invited to book an unforgettable stay in a luxurious Rooftop Garden Suite. Located on the sixth and seventh floors of the hotel, four duplex suites feature a private roof garden and terrace perfect for hosting an intimate
barbecue party – a popular pastime at The Peninsula Beverly Hills - while contemplating the Sacré Coeur and the Eiffel Tower.
Suffused with an easy-living feel and positive vibes, The Peninsula Paris is poised to become a sunny hot spot; a hideaway for the happy few in search of escape and “California dreamin’.” It’s more than a way of life, it’s a state of mind.
