The bathroom’s design is perfectly correlated to the bedroom, but instead of a variety of neutral, white hues — the design carries monochromatic greys and saturated wood. Creating an in depth sanctuary. Prepare to enter the japonais-style bathtub along with Bvlgari products that will take you from reality and bring you to your own personal spa. It’s tea time: soak in the Bvlgari eau parfumée au thé blanc tea bag. With a moving wooden board located on top of the tub, you can place your glass of champagne right above you as you de-stress from your long day of exploring — or you can place your laptop if your luxurious stay also includes unfinished business. C’est l’heure pour le petit déjeuner! Leves-toi! You can order breakfast in bed, but we recommend hitting the buffet-style selection downstairs. Just passed the sitting room in which candles are lit morning and night, a cheery breakfast staff awaits in the morning to explain the hotel’s selection of fresh, organic fruits, milks, and grains and where their food is sourced from. We enjoyed a delightful breakfast with a variety of salt and sweet. The custom omelette (prepared to your specific requestswell-done, medium, etc…) had a mix of mushrooms, cheese and peppers. Pour the caramel sauce over the rich but smooth rice pudding (riz au lait) and let it melt in your mouth during this truly decadent dining experience. Enjoy this early morning treat before gallivanting around Paris or sinking in to a day of deep relaxation at Hotel De Nell’s spa, which is intimate and exclusive to the hotel. Designed and decorated by the famous French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte whose focus lies in the art and mindset of well-being or “bien-être"distinguishes this spa by bringing you to a haven of peace and tranquility, focusing on exceptional facial and body care. Hotel de Nell is the ideal getaway for a few days in Paris. The comfortable rooms and contemporary luxury will enhance anyone’s travel experience in this enchanting city. While we would recommend this hotel to any person traveling to Paris, remember that while booking your stay, do not expect a traditional confirmation email from this boutique (and sometimes snarky hotel and staff) — “We are not The Marriott” the hotel manager was quick to remind us. ■ LE FA I R MA G A Z I NE | 1 3 5
