HÔTEL BARRIÈRE LE ROYAL LA BAULE
History & Story
At the beginning, the Hôtel Barrière Le Royal La Baule was an institute for sick children. The story of La Baule is imprinted with famous names including Mr François André who arrived in La Baule in 1923.He brought back to life the Hotel Royal, which became a hotel in 1902. He transformed the hotel and casino into prestigious establishments surrounded by luxury shops. Celebrities such as Mistinguet, Sacha Guitry, etc… were the ambassadors or dinners and galas. François André made of La Baule a centre of high society life for his guests.
In 1962, Lucien Barrière succeeded François André and he renovated facilities maintaining the concepts of luxury, charm and quality. He died in 1990 and his daughter, Diane Barrière-Desseigne, took over the group with her husband, Dominique Desseigne. She wanted the Group to be the reference among high-class resorts in Europe. In 2001, Diane Barrière-Desseigne died in an accident and her husband became the President of the Group Lucien Barrière.
The rooms and bathrooms, the lobby, the restaurant and the bar has been renovated during the period from 3rd November 2014 to 3rd April 2015. The Studio Chantal Peyrat has redesigned the gracious and elegant décor, lending to it a seaside atmosphere.
