Identity

Since the 2006 opening of its first Maison in Courchevel, Cheval Blanc has been offering contemporary and refined hospitality that presents an entirely new concept of high-end luxury hotels.  Beyond the exceptional surroundings, spacious living areas and high-end facilities, Cheval Blanc is outstanding in its customized approach to services, which are tailored to suit the individual needs and expectations of each guest.  In Courchevel, the Maldives, Saint-Barthélemy and soon in Paris, Cheval Blanc applies this approach through its four founding values, which are craftsmanship, exclusive, privacy, creativity and Art de Recevoir (i.e. art of hospitality). The Maisons are exclusive havens of refinement, designed as “limited editions”. They call upon the treasures of talent and imagination to make each stay a unique and unforgettable experience. Here, French art de vivre, the ultimate expression of both sophistication and conviviality, is further enhanced, going beyond guests’ expectations.

In 2006, the first Cheval Blanc Maison opened its doors in Courchevel 1850. This exceptional mountaintop hideaway is part of the exclusive circle of French luxury palaces. The modern chalet with 37 bedrooms and suites is an invitation to a world where every detail counts.

Insights

Olivier Lefebvre, Head of Hotel Activities, LVMH Hotel Management © LVMH Hotel Management, S. Candito

” Cheval Blanc is based on four core values, the sum of which is unique in the world of hospitality. Craftsmanship, with a sense of detail pushed to extremes and painstaking groundwork on the product itself. Exclusive privacy, because the number of rooms is purposefully kept to a minimum. Creativity, which means that traditional codes are reinterpreted with boldness and modernity.  And finally, the Art de Recevoir and its thoughtful approach to service, which gives a unique character to each stay.”

Savoir-faire

Culinary experiences, exclusive events, signature fragrances and à la carte Cheval Blanc Spa treatments make them a subtle showcase of the LVMH Group’s savoir-faire. This is our way of creating the special alchemy that happens when you combine a magical destination, local character, and the experience of hospitality at its purest. The entire team is trained in the art of French hospitality and is devoted to satisfying the most demanding requests. They look after them with efficiency and respect; their attention to detail is faultless. They also share the same determination to express originality, elegance or humor in their approach to service, giving the Maisons the feel of a home away from home and making guests want to return or perhaps experience one of Cheval Blanc’s other destinations…

Outlook

Designing “the most beautiful urban hotel in the world”: that was the challenge laid down by Cheval Blanc to La Samaritaine, in the words of Jean-Jacques Guiony, its Chairman.  In this symbol of Parisian history, which is currently being rebuilt, Cheval Blanc will occupy the heritage building designed by Henri Sauvage in the 1920s. This Art Deco gem will be renovated and redesigned by Edouard François and Peter Marino, two highly reputed architects. With 72 bedrooms, breathtaking views over the capital, an exceptional range of restaurants and a garden terrace above the building’s famous glass rooftop, Cheval Blanc Samaritaine will offer an exceptional hotel experience. Other projects being looked at on a proprietary or outsourced management basis include such locations as Bodrum, Oman and Bali.
