History & Story
In 1905, the evian mineral water company commissioned the construction of a luxury hotel. A name was needed that would reflect the prestige of its future guests including king edward VII of england who had promised to be one of the first to stay at the new hotel. As so it was that the royal hôtel opened on 16th june 1909. The king died in 1910 without ever having visited the suite set aside for him. The name “royal” remained.
July, the 3rd 2015. Entrusted to interior designer François Champsaur, and head architect of historic monuments, François Chatillon, the renovation of the hôtel Royal was a large-scale project while combining historic heritage with the latest trends in contemporary design.
