Paris Hilton along with Victoria Secret Models played host at Suite Miami in Bâoli on Saturday, 20 May 2006 to the rich and famous attending the Cannes Film festival. The provocatively attired American socialite and heiress to the Hilton Hotel fortune, who also dabbles in modeling and acting, was presented a diamond ring on the occasion.
The Bâoli is a luxury restaurant on the edge of the Riviera that film stars, models and millionaire frequent during the Cannes film festival. It creates the ambience of the island of Bali in Indonesia, a very popular tourist destination. The entrance mimics the gates of a Hindu temple. The logo of the Bâoli takes inspiration from the Hindu god Shiva and symbolizes water flowing sinuously and dropping on a lingam. The interiors are exotic with palm trees, candle-lit tables and sofas bathed with subdued light from lamps.
The fact that most of us would find Bâoli frightfully expensive to eat out at could well be left unsaid. After all, someone had to pay for the diamond ring presented to Ms Hilton.
