By Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée

Nestled between the mountains and the Mediterranean, Nice has an irresistible charm. The capital of the French Riviera offers a range of activities — visitors can soak up the bright colours of the old baroque town, taste its Mediterranean cuisine and explore museums, such as those dedicated to iconic artists Matisse and Chagall. What’s more, there are stunning views from the top of Castle Hill and a gentle stroll taking in the sea air along the city’s best-known thoroughfare, the Promenade des Anglais, is a must.

Commanding an exceptional location on this iconic boulevard is the majestic Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée. Built in 1929, the hotel’s stunning art deco facade hints at its status as a national historic monument, and it has recently been sumptuously restored so it can be admired in all its original splendour. Just a few minutes from the old town, Vieux-Nice, the hotel is the ideal base for a shopping spree in the city, or for exploring the wonders of the French Riviera. Travellers can choose from 187 guestrooms or one of the nine luxury suites. With breathtaking views of the sea, the city or the surrounding mountains, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed break amid art deco-inspired architecture. The warm modern decor combines wood, textile and sleek lines in a timeless colour scheme, inviting guests to enjoy a memorable experience with a view.

With a Turkish bath, sauna and fitness centre, guests can truly unwind during their stay, or take a dip in either the indoor and outdoor pools— surrounded by deckchairs and heated all year long. From the adjoining terrace, guests can linger over views of the Bay of Angels and the turquoise hues of the Mediterranean.

At Le 3e restaurant and bar, diners can tuck into flavourful Mediterranean cuisine that changes with the seasons, based on organic and local products. No matter the time of year, every dish expresses the talents of executive chef Cyril Cheype to their fullest. The first days of spring see Le 3e extend out onto the terrace at the heart of the hotel, offering one of the most beautiful views over the Promenade des Anglais, and out to the Mediterranean.
