LUXURY HOTEL INSIDER

Bardessono is one of only three hotels in the United States that has been designed to achieve the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design's (LEED) Platinum certification, the highest standard for environmental design. Initiatives include:
-Buildings that are designed with overhangs to reduce the heat gain from the summer sun, yet allow the winter sun's rays to enter and warm the rooms. Each room has 200 square feet of glass to allow for natural lighting.
-When cooling is required, the first stage of intervention is for motor controlled exterior venetian blinds to lower to reduce the heat gain from the sun. When additional heating or cooling in guest rooms is necessary, water is used from 72, 300 foot wells on the property.
-All glues, adhesives, finishes, paints, carpets, and fabrics used at Bardessono are required to meet low volatile organic compounds (VOC) standards to vastly improve indoor air quality.
-The combination of low VOC compound materials, no carpeting and drapes, all organic linens, terry and cleaning supplies, greatly reduces any potential allergens in the rooms.
-Indoors, bathroom fixtures with low water flow have been installed, along with dual flush toilets and waterless urinals. Outdoors, native and drought tolerant plants have been chosen for landscaping in order to minimize water demand.

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.
