Located 90 minutes from Charles de Gaulle Airport and overlooking the vineyards that stripe the hills of Épernay and the villages of Champillon and Hautvillers, Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa is built like a contemporary amphitheater, offering stunning views from each of its 49 rooms and suites.
Reimagining the wine-country retreat for all seasons, the property embraces the lush bounty of the wineries and the UNESCO World Heritage Site that surround it, while bringing to the region its first world-class destination spa and chef-led gastronomic restaurant.
In concert with renowned Biologique Recherche, the wellness center at Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa was designed to pamper, rejuvenate and elevate the body and spirit with nine treatment rooms; state-of-the-art fitness facility; wood-lined yoga studio; eucalyptus-infused sauna; manicure and pedicure stations; and mosaic-tiled hammam. Completing the setting are two temperature-controlled, chaise-lounge-lined swimming pools —one indoor, one outdoor — along with dedicated staff who will quietly deliver invigorating juice blends and guide guests to multiple relaxation lounges within the cozy setting.
Two-star Michelin chef Jean-Denis Rieubland joins Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa as executive chef, where he is charged with two dining experiences - a gourmet dining room, Le Royal, and a more casual, all-day restaurant, Bellevue. Chef Rieubland brings the highest level of gastronomy to Royal Champagne, where he intends to, preserve French know-how while injecting a contemporary touch.
