Le Royal Monceau in Paris Rolls Out New Program for Chic Kids
No pressure, kid, but this better taste good.
Parisians: aren’t they just so chic? The thought of them makes us want to fly over there right now in the hope of some of that je ne sais quoi rubbing off. Now, thanks to Le Royal Monceau, our kids stand a chance of getting polished up as well.
The Raffles property, which, incidentally, has just received ‘palace’ status, is rolling out a new children’s program, adorably named Le Petit Royal.
The program includes a big line-up of art workshops held during Saturday brunch at the hotel’s Michelin-starred La Cuisine -- and we just love the idea of the kids creating masterpieces while we take our time over a spectacular brunch. The workshops, led in French and English by professional artists, are timed to coincide with current exhibitions in the city. The first workshop on September 28th, for example, will look at the work of cubist Georges Braque as a major retrospective of his work opens at the Grand Palais, while the November 30th class focuses on Pablo Picasso just as the Picasso Museum reopens after two years of renovations.
Maria de la Chica, Director of Children's Relations, poses with Bonpoint kittens.
But that’s not all: also on the program are movie screenings, treasure hunts through the Louvre and pirate boat trips down the Seine. The hotel is even partnering with tres chic children’s couture fashion line Bonpoint who are providing gifts for participating children, including a cuddly stuffed kitten named ‘Royal’ and skincare products for children -- because, we guess, you're never too young to worry about aging skin.
The Family Escape package, which includes breakfast at La Cuisine, starts at €1,335, (USD $1,744) with a reduction of 50% on the second room for children.
