A Bit About Beau Rivage Hotel Et Plage


By: Five Star Alliance

Beau Rivage Hotel Et Plage, built in 1860, is located in the heart of the old city, a few steps away from the famous Promenade des Anglais and within walking distance from the Acropolis Convention Centre. Artists and intellectuals of that time such as Matisse, Fitzgerald, Nietzsche or Theckhov were fond of this hotel and were regular clients. It features a private beach with a restaurant.

At the beginning of the 21st century, the French architect Jean-Michel WIlmotte completed a full scale renovation of the Hotel Beau Rivage. Throughout the hotel, pebble motifs evoke the beaches of Nice. You will find them in the sofas with their Livingstone pebble cushions designed by Stéphanie Marin, the lamps by Céline Wright and the tables which were tailor-made for this boutique hotel by the artist Bernard Reyboz.
