Constructed in 1904 and immediately establishing itself as a haunt for the upper classes of French Society, the aptly named Royal-Riviera has an effortless charm and grace.
The sun-filled terraces opening up from large, stately rooms, decorated in alluring blends of Art Deco and Neo-Hellenic influences, come together to create an ambience that is simply delightful.
With its own private beach with watersports, open from mid-May to mid-September, and just 94 rooms, the Royal-Riviera is as exclusive as it is luxurious. Indulgent days can be spent at the Wellness Centre's sauna and hammam, simply lazing on the private beach, or sipping cocktails by the pool.
