Le VIP Paris Yacht Hotel
Ranked #18 of 185 Specialty Lodging in Paris
Reviewed September 19, 2012

The staff at Le VIP Paris is amazing with a great attention to details. Will have to come back on our next visit to Paris as we didn't get to stay the night as all rooms were booked. We did have a super romantic evening cruise with a live jazz duet entertaining the guests during sinner. Even though it rained, Paris was even more magical by night on the Seine. Loved the experience. À refaire!

My wife and I were on the last night of our honeymoon in Paris. We couldn't be happier with the experience. The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food was amazing and the views of the waterfront were fabulous. We had opted to stay the night on board and the room couldn't be nicer.It was peaceful to hear the sound of the water at night.I would highly recommend anyone visiting Paris for a romantic getaway to book some time with VIP Paris. It is well worth the money.

A friend and I were in Paris for a day and a night on our way to a meet a group of girlfriends for a "girls trip in Epernay." We wanted to do a river cruise to see as much of Paris as possible and when we stumbled on the VIP yacht we thought "great, we won't have to get off the boat and go back to a hotel after the cruise." We could not have been happier -- the crew was very friendly and most accommodating; the boat was clean and cabins were comfortable; the cruise offered fabulous views of Paris along the river; the food and wine were excellent; weather was ideal (I'm sure the VIP crew put in an order for good weather to make the evening perfect) -- all in all it was an absolutely wonderful experience. I can't wait to take my husband back for the two of us to enjoy a romantic evening!

We thought this was a cruise, then a meal - but the two were combined to a lovely moonlit cruise down the seine with a meal at the same time. The food was brilliant, and being only a limited number of people on board there was plenty of space and seating to choose from. Rooms were also very comfy. Perfect.

Upon arrival, staff received us with a genuine smile (are we really in Paris?), and started to feel the welcoming atmosphere on board. I was invited to personalize the ambiance by ordering some little extras like a magnificent bouquet of red roses, chilled champagne in the cabin (next time I need to think of the strawberries!), and something I think was a “Lovebox” containing some surprises from a brand called Bijoux Indiscrets. Thanks for the advice, this little plus made a difference.

I appreciated the privacy and comfort of the boat and our cozy cabin overlooking the Seine River, the confortable double bed, all equipped with shower and sanitary. Don’t expect a 100m2 hotel room – you are probably in the wrong place – but you get a real luxury Yacht comfort experience.

For dinner, we had a table for two on the Seine with the possibility to walk around on deck during our meal. Quality of the meal was aligned with our expectations, and we just loved the chocolate dessert in duo.

No need to describe our night onboard, the thing you need to know is that staff really cares about your intimacy, and that it was very … romantic :-) Waking up with the sound of the water lapping was very relaxing, too.

VIP is of easy access, and if you really want to leave for a while you may find plenty of nearby walking and cultural activities: Bibliothèque François Mitterand, the Cour Saint Emilion, the Botanical Gardens, Chinatown and Mouffetard, among others. During the trip we could see monuments we would otherwise just ignore while strolling around in a city I thought I already knew well enough.

I believe this is a unique and original service in Paris, which made me (us!) have a romantic moment in a different way. Overall, a Quality experience I would be willing to repeat.

This river yacht on the Seine was a splurge for our last night in Paris that we decide to try out thanks to a groupon offer. It is definitely pricey, but includes a lovely dinner while cruising out and back along the river, and a nicely appointed though small stateroom for the night while the yacht is docked. Breakfast would certainly be delicious as well but we had to leave early to catch a flight and missed out. Our only complaint was that beverages are not included and prices are really inflated, in addition to the already steep price for the whole experience. Makes an absolutely perfect getaway if you can score a discount. While it was nice and romantic, I'd still think twice before staying at full price.
