After Brit author James Hilton coined the term ‘Shangri-la’ to describe his fictional utopia, the name’s become synonymous with one particular hotel brand that does paradise like no other. Previously restricted to exotic locations in India, the Middle East and Asia, their Parisian property heralds the beginning of a European expansion that’ll see Shangri-Las popping up in London, Vienna and Istanbul in the next few years.

Maybe they were just waiting for a spectacular location to open up – and nothing screams exclusivity more than this 19th century palace of Napoleon’s grand-nephew in the haut bourgeois 16th Arrondissement. The renovations have been four years in the making, with Pierre-Yves Rochon combining amazing original features with an elegant colour palette of royal blue, gold and cream and plenty of marble, silk and crystal.

With only 54 rooms and 27 suites, visitors have 35 square meters as a minimum to play with, in spaces that feel decidedly residential, and views of the Eiffel Tower, Seine, Louvre and Montmartre to boot, as well as private gardens to have a little Marie Antoinette moment of their own. There’ll be three restaurants in total when the final upgrades are made, as well as a 50ft subterranean swimming pool. Ooh-la-Shangri-la!
