Hotel Spotlight: La Reserve Paris

EA Favorites, Feature, EAH Travel Inspiration, Real Vacation, Destination Spotlight, Hotel Feature, Real Honeymoon, Travel |

 

Paris is the City of Love. It is the City of the Lights. It is the epicenter of all things chic, beautiful, romantic and timeless. Whether you’re visiting with the love of your life, a group of friends, or exploring on your own, this city will take your breath away! Paris is filled with some of the most beautiful and iconic buildings and no visit would be complete without seeing the Eiffel Tour, Arc De Triomphe, and the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Art lovers will find no shortage of amazing museums to explore with classic pieces housed at the Louvre or the amazing collection of impressionist pieces at the Musee d’Orsay.

The dining options in Paris are also endless, as it is home to one of the largest selections of Michelin restaurants. If you’ve come to shop, Champs-Élysées offers some of the chicest couture you will find anywhere in the world! And finally, if you’re an architecture buff, you will delight in the diverse mix of styles, everything ranging from Gothic to Art Deco to Baroque to Art Nouveau to Renaissance to Classic French.

Paris is filled with so many amazing and unique hotel options but on my most recent visit, I made La Reserve Paris my home and everything about my stay was incredible! You can’t beat the location of this property.


It is comfortably nestled off the Champs-Elysées, and overlooks the Grand Palais, the Eiffel Tower, the Pantheon and the Concorde.

The hotel has the elegance of a 19th century urban mansion but provides a private club atmosphere, where only guests may access the library, smoking lounge, pool and fitness center.

La Reserve Paris is a boutique property with only 26 rooms and 14 suites, each having its own charm and personality.

All of the accommodations are spacious and comfortable, featuring custom silk walls, velvet drapes, contemporary paintings, antique bronze sculptures and brocade taffeta. You will be well taken care of during your stay, as every room and suite has a personal butler.


There is an intimate spa on property, with only three treatment rooms. They offer some of the world’s finest anti-aging treatments using Nescens products from Switzerland and they can tailor any service to your exact personal needs. You’ll also find one of the city’s only indoor pools as well as a fitness center. Guests can also request private yoga, pilates or personal training sessions.

Finally, the property has two amazing restaurants with gastronomic offerings from acclaimed chef Jerome Banctel. Le Gabriel is the double-Michelin-starred restaurant. I suggest ordering the tasting menu so that you can have a thorough introduction to the seasonal French cuisine. La Pagode is the second option, offering incredible dishes with a spicy flair.

If you want to take your trip to the next level, charter a private helicopter to give you an aerial tour of the City of Lights.

After you’ve admired the architecture and city streets from above, let your captain whisk you away to the Château de Ferrières for a relaxing lunch at Le Baron.

The restaurant is perfectly situated inside a beautiful 19th century French chateau and you can explore the amazing buildings and grounds after you dine.



Paris is the perfect destination for a romantic vacation or honeymoon! If you’d like to start planning your trip to La Reserve Paris please email me. Not only will you be VIP guests but you will receive daily breakfast, 100 euros spa credit, complimentary airport transfers (for 3-night stays) and top priority for room upgrades.

The Legian in Seminyak, Bali

Feature, Destination Spotlight, Hotel Feature |

After a couple days relaxing at The Bulgari Resort in Uluwatu, we headed north to The Legian in Seminyak.  I was really excited to visit this hotel and Seminyak after hearing such great things, and was certainly not disappointed!

Seminyak is the most trendy area of Bali.  It is a really cool beach town with cute boutiques, fun beach bars, and excellent restaurants. Seminyak is also a popular spot for surfers.  This just might be my favorite beach town I have ever visited! Everywhere we went had such a fun atmosphere. I would highly recommend a stop at the beach bar Ku De Ta (and then download their albums on Itunes!) and dinners at the restaurants Sardine and Sarong!

The Legian is the perfect place to stay in Seminyak.  The location could not be more central- right on the beach and walking distance to the town.    The hotel has a gorgeous 3 tiered infinity pool, and day beds right over the beach.  And incredibly nice, friendly service.

For an extra special honeymoon, stay at The Club at The Legian, which is right across the street from the main part of the hotel.  Here are gorgeous one bedroom villas with huge private pools!  Super romantic, private, and spacious.

The Ranch at Rock Creek

Feature, Destination Spotlight |

I recently returned from the most incredible stay at The Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana!  This is a luxury ranch with a ton of fun activities, incredible food, and really genuine friendly service.  This certainly isn’t your typical honeymoon spot, but is perfect for couples that are really active and are wanting to do something different for their honeymoon.

This is truly an all inclusive experience- not just your food and drinks, but also a ton of activities.  We enjoyed a morning hike with gorgeous views, shot clay pigeons, went horse back riding, and even shot rifles and pistols!  If I had more time there I would have also loved to go fly fishing, try out their 3D archery, and shoot paintballs.  At night is a lot of fun too- the Silver Dollar Saloon has a bowling alley, shuffleboard, and a movie cinema!

The accommodations are really beautiful as well.  They have rooms in the lodge, luxury tents on the creek, and also private cabins.  Each is immaculately decorated in true ranch style, with fun little details.  Everywhere is really spread out which gives you a lot of privacy, and every guest has their own bike to easily get around.  We stayed in the Ponderosa cabin which I loved!  A few other favorites are Trapper Cabin for total privacy, Bluebird Cabin for romance, and The Historic Barn for families or a big group of friends.

I was so impressed by the details here.  The Ranch provides all gear, including cowboy boots!  And literally anything you ask for they will provide.  Popcorn while you are bowling? Of course! Going on an early morning excursion? They will have coffee and snacks ready for you!  Want to have a special dining experience? They will set up a private lunch or dinner on any number of private spots around the property.

 

Does this sound like your ideal honeymoon spot?  Or somewhere you would like to get away to for a long weekend?  Email us!  Clients of Ever After Honeymoons receive some special amenities during their stay!

Le Sirenuse

Feature, Honeymoon Perk, Destination Spotlight, Hotel Feature |

I adore Italy, but after visiting Le Sirenuse in Positano, it has quickly become one of my favorite Italian destinations! Couples can enjoy the spectacular Amalfi Coast from the steps of the hotel! The view is breathtaking!

The Sant’Antonio, an absolutely gorgeous wooden boat, takes up to 12 people for complimentary daily excursions along the coast, from June to September (weather permitting).

Couples can experience Italian luxury by renting a private boat through Le Sirenuse to explore the coast. Drop off at any of the local favorite spots: Pompei, Paestum, Ravello or Amalfi! The Le Sirenuse concierge provides complete assistance with organizing any excursion. Yachting in Italy? Yes please!

Couples receive $100 spa services credit when they book through Ever After Honeymoons.  Email me to plan your Italian getaway!

Bon Voyage!
