A dazzling dream on the Mediterranean for a posh winter stay.
01 . 26 . 20
Escape the noise of reality and head to the dreamy Hotel Martinez for a dazzling winter escape in the Côte d'Azur region of France. Opened in 1929, the Hotel Martinez is a stunning example of Art Deco decor. The hotel is the very embodiment of the carefree spirit of the French Riviera and the Mediterranean lifestyle. Inspired by the colors of the Cote d’Azur, interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon breathes a new life into this renovated hotel. The crystal fixtures, ice blue coloring and white Art Deco molding transports you into a land of clam and fantasy.
The hotel is a must for the perfect unexpected winter escape. Film stars, royalty and tourists stay year round at this oasis by the sea. Art Deco and 1930’s flair perfectly blends with contemporary design and luxury in the 409 guestrooms and suites. For the ultimate winter French Riviera experience, these exclusive rooms and suites have stunning views of the sea. You can stare out at the ocean from the comfort and warmth of your room. There’s a sauna and a well-equipped fitness center with views of the Mediterranean. You can spend the day in the decadent spa getting a facial that uses the lush Swiss brand, L Raphael.
Breakfast is also a dream like fantasy. The huge buffet is complete with different sections for fruits, breads (including gluten-free), pastries, cheese and eggs, nuts and seeds. There is also a wall of bread in baskets hanging down from the ceiling. I thought I was still dreaming when I entered the room. Dinner at the property is also delicious offering French fare with a Mediterranean twist by genius chef, Christian Sinicropi.
