New luxury hotel opens in Champagne with eye-watering prices

Champagne has a new luxury hotel but you'll need a Champagne budget to go with your Champagne tastes if you hope to stay at the Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa


The new hostelry is the Champagne region's first contemporary luxury hotel with entry-level rooms starting at an eye-watering $865 for a king-sized bed and private terrace.

The top tier Josephine suite, meanwhile, will set guests back $1887 a night but you get a sitting room and a balcony overlooking vineyards.

Each of the 49 rooms in the hotel Herm├Ęs bath products.

The property, a member of the elite Relaix & Chateaux group,  is set among vineyards in Champillon, near Epernay, and hotel guests will be given exclusive access to Champagne houses that are normally closed to the public. 

Michelin-starred chef Jean-Denis Rieubland, previously at the Negresco in Nice, is in charge of the food. 
Rieubland will work with local seasonal ingredients and plans to develop a vegetable and herb garden on the hotel’s terrace.

The building features the original 19th-century post house where King Charles X of France stopped over before heading to Reims for his coronation.

In 2014 the property was acquired by the Boston-based Champagne Hospitality group, which owns a collection of boutique luxury hotels including Le Barthelemy Hotel & Spa in St. Barts and it has been completely revamped.

The spa features nine treatment rooms, an indoor and outdoor pool, a wood-lined yoga studio; a eucalyptus-infused sauna, and a mosaic-tiled hammam.
