In these days we all appreciate some peace and tranquillity, CovetED brings you some news to tranquillize you. Paris has a hotel that was made to be a tranquillized refugee (and for sure, an amazing option after the quarantine times). Hoy Hotel is situated in the heart of Paris, in the ninth arrondissement. The hotel was designed to be a “true hideaway” from the hustle and bustle of the French capital.
TV-free guest suites and an in-house yoga studio are some of the ways that hotelier Charlotte Gomez de Orozco has tried to channel a sense of serenity inside this Parisian hotel, which is decked out in natural hues.
HOY promises a place of life around well-being and a good living for Parisians as well as for yogis around the world. A meeting place around our pillars: Accommodation, restaurant, yoga room, treatment room & our florist.
De Orozco developed the aesthetic of the hotel with the help of Sabrina Goldin and Stéphane Abby, a pair of restaurateurs who already oversee two Parisian eateries.
Together they tried to foster a “feng shui state of mind” in the 22 guest bedrooms. Feng shui is an ancient Chinese practice that claims to use flows of energy – otherwise known as “chi” – to harmonise humans with their surrounding environments. Each of the rooms has therefore been completed with calming eggshell-coloured walls and teal-blue headboards.
Appliances like televisions have been purposefully omitted and instead replaced with stretching bars, which guests can use to limber up. Some of the larger suites also have yoga hammocks suspended from the ceiling.
At this level, there is also a restaurant called Mesa, which will exclusively serve plant-based dishes that take culinary inspiration from De Orozco’s Franco-Mexican heritage. Walls here have been hand-rendered with concrete to leave a textured surface, while warm-hued timber has been used to craft dining chairs.
Other hotels in Paris include Le Barn, which opened in 2018. Situated 40 minutes outside the city centre, it takes over a handful of disused 19th-century farm buildings and features rustic interiors developed by design studio Be-poles.
