Royal Riviera 5*

Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France

Hotel's website
Constructed in 1904, the Royal Riviera was at first known as the Bedford, most probably in homage to the very first British visitors. The hotel found itself immediately at the centre of the most sophisticated worldwide circles. At the beginning of the Century, it became the place to stay, to spend a winter season in the suburbs of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and Beaulieu-sur-mer, for Leopold II, William II, the Princess Galitzine and the Prince of Wales. It became the place where the international Gotha would mix with the cultural upper classes of French society, who would build, in honour of a long career or an exceptional life, the most refined villas possible and also, sometimes, the most extravagant. Gustave Eiffel would build his own villa in 1903. The Baroness Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild would build, in 1905, a "folie", inspired by the Tuscan villas of the Renaissance, and surrounded by seven gardens, where the excellence of the arts of the 18th century are still admired today. The archaeologist Théodore Reinach, fascinated by the ancient Greece, oversaw the construction in 1908, on the "Baie des Fournis", of a work of art unique throughout the whole world, the Villa Kérylos, a modernized recreation of a noble residence on the island if Délos, dating to the 2nd century B.C. From the opposite side of the cove, the Royal Riviera overlooks this exotic edifice, perched upon a bed of rocks, and surrounded by cyprus and olive trees. The Royal Riviera was finally reborn in 1999. The instigators of this rebirth were wise enough to pay respect to the style which characterizes this corner of the Côte d'Azur.

After the major hotel renovation in 2017-2018 the hotel boasts a total of 94 rooms and suites, 78 of which are in the main building. Designed with a harmony of colors to reflect the landscape of the south of France, the majority of the rooms overlook the sea and gardens. Each room, each window, each balcony offers a real enchantment of nature: each room is an invitation to pleasure.

The restaurant "La Table du Royal" offers you a subtle mixture of Mediterranean cuisine and flavors from further afield that creates an inventive and irreproachable table.
The second restaurant "Jasmin Grill & Lounge" is open every day for lunch. The Jasmin Grill & Lounge is situated next to the swimming pool with a magnificent full view of the sea. Every lunchtime, the Chef will offer you an International menu with a large choice of salads and Mediterranean specialities, as well as barbecue grilled meat and fish.
In a colonial style with exotic touches, the bar Le Cap gives you the impression of being seated in a private lounge. The bar also boasts a full length terrace overlooking the hotel gardens.
