There’s a reason why the French Riviera remains the go-to region for glamorous, sun-splashed vacations. With its fashionable, see-and-be-seen beaches and vibrant, palm-fringed promenades proliferated with Michelin-starred restaurants and luxury resorts – not to mention the balmy year-round sun and the potential of spotting a Kardashian or a Beckham – the Côte d’Azur is rightly considered to be one of the Mediterranean’s most seductive seafront locations.
If enjoying a slice of this holiday heaven is on your travel bucket list, then you’re in luck, because a renovation to one of the region’s most cherished hotels means there’s never been a better time to imbibe everything the French Riviera has to offer.
Situated on the iconic Promenade des Anglais, Le Méridien Nice has been an A-lister in its own right ever since its construction in 1974. The property is looking more splendid than ever, with all of its 318 guest rooms having been redesigned with sandy beige interiors and contemporary furniture, harping back to the elegant Golden Sixties era. Meanwhile, the new-look suites – the largest of which boasts an impressive 100sqm terrace – mean the hotel continues to have some of the finest ocean-facing rooms in the city.
Elsewhere, you can enjoy artisan coffee and afternoon tea, as well as evening cocktails with delectable Mediterranean tapas at the all-new Latitude Bar, and if you’re partial to a sundowner on a boujie rooftop overlooking the ocean, La Terrasse is just the tonic. Claiming to be the highest restaurant on the Promenade des Anglais, the restaurant’s gourmet French plates and panoramic views over the Med mean a reservation here is an absolute must.
And just to make your stay extra-special, the team at Le Méridien Nice have pooled their expert local knowledge to curate a downloadable guidebook to help you locate Nice’s best off-the-beaten-track gems, from the most Instagrammable views to the most delicious Niçoise delicacies. Whichever way you define luxury, you’ll be sure to find it here.
