Hôtel Royal Riviera, SAINT-JEAN-CAP-FERRAT, France
As handsome as it is fashionable, this grand, Belle Époque boutique hotel is the epitome of all that is great about the French Riviera – style, sophistication, glamour, and a certain joie de vivre.
Located in a privileged position on the peninsula of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, this unique hotel continues to evoke the Belle Époque era from when it was originally constructed, a recent renovation skilfully retaining the property's Art Deco and Neo-Hellenic influences.
Surrounded by fragrant gardens with spectacular vistas of the sun-drenched sea and private sandy beach, the majority of the hotel's rooms are in the main building, most overlooking the sea and gardens, and some with mountain views.
The remainder can be found in the Orangerie, an independent villa of contemporary design painted in colours influenced by the sea and sun of Provence.
Guests may dine on the outdoor terrace of the restaurant Le Panorama, where an exceptional culinary experience awaits, or, during the summer months, at the poolside grill, La Pergola.
