Sparkling times

Situated in a commanding position in the hills above Épernay, the capital of Champagne, Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa offers uninterrupted views over the bucolic vineyards of this world-renowned wine producing region.

Within walking distance of the historic villages of Champillon and Hautvillers, the resting place of Dom Pérignon himself, the property attracts wine lovers and luxury wellness travellers from around the world.

The original hotel on the site closed in 2014 after it was acquired by Boston-based Champagne Hospitality collection, a group of boutique luxury hotels and spas that includes the award-winning Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa in St. Barths. It was subsequently razed to the ground as part of a four-year, multi-million-euro project that resulted in the opening of the current property in the summer of 2018.

Having gained a reputation for offering personalised service and unique experiences, Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa was recently named as the best hotel in France in the Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards 2019. Less than an hour from the capital, it has proved popular with Parisians, but also attracts a large proportion of its guests from the UK, USA and the Benelux countries.

Despite its evolution, the eye-catching building has retained a slice of its heritage through the incorporation of the original 19th century Post House, where it is said that King Charles X of France stayed on the way to Reims for his coronation.

Making the most of its hill-top position, the property was designed to resemble a contemporary amphitheatre, ensuring that all 47 rooms and suites, two restaurants and the spa have magnificent views across the Champagne valley. “The owners are passionate about the luxury hotel industry and wines, so obviously Champagne is the best destination for this,” says general manager Vincent Parinaud. “We are in the middle of the vineyards and every single guest area allows enjoyment of the view.”

“Guests come to a hotel to enjoy a stay and an experience,” says Vincent Parinaud. “They don’t just come for a night’s sleep. That’s why the spa is so important. You have to have one. When people come to our hotel, they are coming to experience a completely different environment, to relax and enjoy the stay. And for this, the spa is truly an asset.”

“The Bubbles concept is very Champagne. As a guest you may have one-and-a-half hours free, so you know you want one hour of massage, but you can add on half an hour more. It’s a little bubble of happiness, a beautiful add on.”
