This is the former Alila Hotel, that has just recently been re-branded to a Hotel de la Paix. Thus taxis often cannot find it until you say Alila.
That aside, the property is magnificent. Very private, well located with great rooms. This used to be an old French fort, thus all the rooms surround the expansive inner courtyard and pool area.
We had a room with a private pool, which is on each of the four corners of the former fort. Very relaxing! Very private :-) Very worth it.
The spa is also exquisite ... both in terms of design and service/massages.
Besides the Aman, definitely the place to stay in LP. My only concern is that now that it is independently owned, I hope the quality of service won't be sacrificed.
