History & Story
The Royal-Riviera hotel occupies a plum spot on the Cap-Ferrat peninsula. Overlooking Provençal gardens terraced down to the sparkling Mediterranean, the hotel blends palace grandeur with the intimacy of a boutique property.
Build in 1904 under the name of the « Panorama Palace », the hotel was already renowned at the time for its luxury, enjoyed during their stays by European aristocracy and celebrities from all walks of life.
The hotel boasts a total of 94 rooms and suites, 78 of which are in the main building. Designed to reflect the landscape of the south of France, the majority of the rooms overlook the sea and gardens. The private villa l’Orangerie features 16 additional rooms and Suites decorated in the purest Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat style.
True relaxation is waiting just steps away from the main building, on immaculate sun-mattresses around the pool heated year-round, on the private sandy beach in season or at the Thalgo wellness center.
With the omnipresence of the southern gardens and views of the sea, reading a book, drinking tea in the heart of the magnificent garden, everything becomes different, more beautiful than anywhere else.
