His approach to luxury is much more than just expensive price tags and uninspiring, lavish aesthetics. Ducasse goes to great lengths to ensure that his guests will not only enjoy a fantastic meal or a delightful stay, but take home an experience they can treasure for life, and share with friends and family.
