1. ACCOMODATION. WELCOME TO HOTEL RAPHAEL PARIS *****
When it comes to accommodation for the weekend escape, experience
and insta stories/photo opportunities is always at the front list.
Hotel Raphael Paris has recognised since 1925 for its
‘hospitality savoir-faire’ known as expertise, a heaven of peace
for french luxury. One of the many Leading Hotels of the World,
situated on Avenue Kleber, meters away from the fashion boutiques
and museums. The hotel caters for the modern traveller, while
retaining its unique prestige, for an intimate and private ambiance
in the french style luxury. With the most stunning antiques and
patterned furnished decoration,the elegant personality is continuous
through out the entrance to each 36 suites. The only garden rooftop
terrace in Paris with the iconic Eiffel Tower & Arc de Triomphe.
2. FOOD. You like to eat like there is no tomorrow.
I admit full breakfast spreads has become a hotel addition. Nothing like
room service and waking up to a buffet selection on your marble table.
There is always that bed in breakfast surprise, with the Parisian set of
Patisseries, picturesque berries and a pink rose to add to your flatlay.
Don’t get me started on fine dining experiences and 3 course meals. Nothing
like bringing out your phone for every moment a new plate arrives with
amazement. Champagne and beverages of course, comes to a later addiction. (Please
3. TRAVEL GEAR. There is more than just going from A to B…
Keeping it classy from the moment you leave home, to the moment you arrive
and open the luggage like a jacket in the box. Doesn’t matter if you an
untidy packer or plan outfits in advance, it is all hidden inside my
Hartmann luggage. Limited Edition 7R Master Ducord. Made of Aluminium, the
ultimate hand accessory, built like a machine to conquer the indestructible.
4. FASHION. LET’S DISCUSS THE VELVET SUIT SITUATION
We’ve already captured the nation with tailoring, but which kind of
gentleman would take the Velvet Suit to another dimension?
If I was to describe the type of man to wear Velvet, he would
be dapper, elegant and confident.
(This is the response of
fellow gentleman bloggers and not speaking about myself.
The luxurious fabrication only peaks during Festive seasons,
special occasions and celebratory events. Its a rare kind of
species to be in your gentleman’s wardrobe, hence it is that Christmas
party outfit that people can’t resist putting your hands on you. If
you’re thinking about investing in this blazer/ suit staple, then wear
it with class and show the room whose boss.
5. LIFESTYLE. YOU LIVE FOR YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE
As soon as you walk out your Hotel Door, down the lobby, greeted by
the doorman to open for you as you leave. There is that fresh air
kind of feeling, the smiling sensation to discover a new destination.
Those that like to explore, walk miles on end or just simply tap for
uber, organising your schedule is at the palm of your hand. Some may
have an itinerary planned, seats reserved or just like to go with the
flow, time well spent is an experience to remember.
Thank you to Hotel Raphael Paris for hosting me during my time in Paris.
