La Vie En Rose at Shangri-La Hotel, Paris     

There really is no other city in the world that compares to the romance of Paris! I've been day dreaming about a return to the City of Lights .... quite simply, I fell in love with Paris and I've never been quite the same since our return from that dream holiday we took over a year ago. You can read all about our love affair with the city right here. So it was with great pleasure that I received word this morning from the exquisite Shangri-La Hotel in Paris announcing the new 'La Vie en Rose Dream Romance Package' , created with newlyweds, honeymooners and lovebirds of all ages in mind (that being me, and perhaps you too!). 

This is one for the blessed (deep pockets essential!). A special offer that combines the best Shangri-La Hotel, Paris has to offer with unique touches that will make a couple's trip to Paris the experience of a lifetime. Designed around a three-night stay and a series of custom-designed moments, La Vie en Rose includes:

- A romantic room or suite with views of the Eiffel Tower and personalised décor featuring flowers, champagne and celebration patisserie: upon arrival, guests are welcomed with signature haute couture pastries by Head Pastry Chef François Perret.

- A private, one-and-a-half-hour champagne cruise for two: guests may settle into an elegant and iconic Riva speedboat to admire the City of Light from an exceptional vantage point on the Seine. Champagne will be served throughout the trip to complement the moment.

- A three-and-a-half hour photo session with a professional photographer who will commemorate the visit with photographs taken at the guests' favourite Paris locations. If desired, a professional hairstylist and make-up artist can be on hand for a beauty session prior to the taking of photographs (a session lasts approximately one hour). A car service will be provided, and guests will receive the photos on a CD.

- Breakfast served in the guestroom or on the terrace every morning.

- A gourmet dinner for two especially composed by Executive Chef Philippe Labbé of L'Abeille, the hotel's Michelin-starred French gastronomic restaurant, and served on the guests' private terrace.

- A vintage-style Lomography camera loaned by the hotel for the length of stay can be used to capture memories and take amusing tinted photographs. The photos will be developed at the end of the guests' stay and compiled into a keepsake "carnet de voyage" scrapbook.

- Round-trip airport transfer with VIP greeting and a special Shangri-La Hotel, Paris signature gift upon arrival.

Sounds a little bit sublime, doesn't it? Well, it may not be on the cheap side, but no true Parisian chic escape is. And you really can't get better than a stay at the Shangri-La Paris - located in the 16th arrondissement, in what was originally the private home of Prince Roland Bonaparte, grand-nephew of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. Yep, you read that right ... like we said, sublime.

La Vie en Rose Dream Romance Package is available starting at AU$9,020 for a double room with a private terrace and view of the Eiffel Tower and AU$17,790 for a suite with a private terrace and Eiffel Tower view. The package rates are based on a three-night double occupancy stay and include VAT, visitor taxes and service.
