Hotel is the last bastion of the independent palace hotels on the French Rivera. This family run hotel is immersed in French culture with several centuries worth of French art decorating its halls and corridors. Ms. Augier, the hotel’s owner, carefully selected nearly all of the hotels 6,000 piece strong collection. The centrepiece of this beautiful hotel is the stunning chandelier in the Versailles Salon. Comprised of 16,800 pieces of crystal this chandelier is one of only two in the world, the other being in the Kremlin.
Guests of Le Negresco glide across its marble floors with a sophisticated air. The hotel attracts the global elite, especially those with a taste for art and culture. Nothing in this hotel is brash or flashy; instead they have opted for a subtler atmosphere of old-world elegance, of course mixed with all the modern amenities that are essential for a 5 star hotel.
All of the 96 rooms and 21 suites in Le Negresco are decorated in luxurious period furniture and each has its own unique personalisation. The sea-view rooms and suites are superb with floor length windows looking directly onto the Cote D’Azur. Wi-Fi access is free and easily accessible in all rooms. The bathrooms in each room are unique and vary from freestanding baths in deluxe rooms to gold plated fixed baths in the suites.
Le Negresco is the proud home to two Michelin starred restaurant “Le Chantecler” under the charge of Head Chef Jean Denis Rieubland. The food is locally sourced and the cuisine is of course, French. For a more casual setting guests can opt for La Rotonde Brassiere, which is themed as an 18th century carousel. During the day one can choose to sit out on the patio and dine overlooking the sea.
What makes Le Negresco special is its carefully curated theme of French heritage and culture. There is no other hotel that offers an experience quite like it and the added bonus is the prime location right on the Med with amazing views over the Cote d’Azur. I can’t recommend this hotel enough!
