Things Are ‘‘Sounding’’ Good at Park Hyatt

Always pushing the envelope to surpass guests’ expectations, Park Hyatt has created the most indulgent extravagance, a collection of Ultimate Sensory Experiences that range from two to four nights. Elegantly stylish Park Hyatts around the world have created their own sexy packages designed to hone guests’ senses of smell, taste, sight, touch, and sound, plus a sixth sensation that is central to every Park Hyatt experience - a sense of style. These one-of-a-kind packages spoil guests with enticing gifts and unparalleled opportunities from Park Hyatt, such as a private cooking lesson from acclaimed chef Sandro Gamba in NoMI’s private dining room (Chicago), a length of superfine merino wool fabric by Ermenegildo Zegna, three custom-made silk neckties from Stefano Bigi, and other fashion gifts (Milan), a private visit to the Icon painting school and an original icon created by a talented young Russian artist (Moscow), a private appointment at Cartier including special presentations of the latest jewelry and watch collections and a Cartier gift (Hamburg), and a hot-air balloon ride over Canberra with French champagne (Canberra).

The one common amenity is a take-home gift of a Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 2 MP3 digital music player with the A8-designer earphones - an easy and sleek way to continue enjoying the fine sounds and style after returning home without missing a beat. The pocket-size BeoSound 2 allows for one-step navigation right at one’s fingertips, and tracks or volume can be adjusted on the B&O ergonomic earphones without looking down. The smooth stainless steel casing and circular design of the BeoSound 2 embodies Bang & Olufsen’s trademarks of ease, superb craftsmanship, impeccable design, and sound quality.

Priced from $3,000 to $19,700, the Ultimate Sensory Experience specifics are as unique as the hotels and locations themselves. For example, imagine three nights in the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome’s Presidential Suite. The rooftop duplex Presidential Suite has a grand foyer that doubles as a dining room, which opens onto an ultra-luxurious haven featuring two fireplaces. Three terraces offer a spectacular view on the Colonne Vendome and the Eiffel Tower. This magnificent suite is entirely equipped with Bang & Olufsen surround-sound and video system (two televisions and three music systems including a multi-CD player) and has a large, ready-to-cook kitchen.

Once ensconced in the spectacular surroundings, guests can indulge their senses:

  Smell: A personal session with Parisian perfumer Blaise Mautin in
which guests create their own personal scent


  Taste: A private patisserie course with the hotel’s pastry chef,
Jean-Francois Foucher, followed by a private a la carte dinner in
the suite with exclusive French wines

  Sight: VIP treatment in the Chanel salon on rue Cambon and a
private visit of Coco Chanel’s upstairs apartment

  Touch: A one-hour massage for two in the Park Hyatt Le Spa’s
couple’s suite

  Sound: Two first category tickets for an opera or ballet at the
Opera Garnier (private box upon availability)

Voila—a sensuous experience extraordinaire.

Another great experience awaits at Park Hyatt Philadelphia at the
Bellevue, a magnificent national landmark. This package awakens all
the senses in great American style with two nights in the Presidential
Suite, a private breakfast, plus these sensuous pleasures:

Smell: A private yoga and aromatherapy session from The Sporting
Club at The Bellevue, plus a gift of Nicole Miller Philadelphia
yoga mats
