Centrally located at the entrance to Nice’s Golden Square, Anantara Plaza Nice Hotel overlooks Albert 1er gardens and the glittering Promenade des Anglais – the most famous stretch of seafront in Nice.

Reopening with 151 guestrooms including 38 suites, many with sea-facing terraces and balconies, the remarkable 170-year-old building will also feature a new Anantara Spa, a seminar space with multiple meeting rooms and a ballroom, as well as a stylish rooftop restaurant and bar with a 360-degree panoramic view of the Baie des Anges and Old Nice. Facing the beach with private sunbeds, the sprawling Place Massena and numerous fashion boutiques, the heritage hotel is considered the ‘perfect base’ to explore the South of France with its iconic coastal towns all a short drive away.

The guestrooms and suites are inspired by the sparkling Mediterranean Sea and the golden era of Côte d’Azur, blending elegance and comfortable sophistication with exclusive Anantara touches. Offering views of the sea or the historic gardens, the marble-clad interiors feature pastel tones and rich Mediterranean textures to create a tranquil atmosphere, with subtle accents of wood and gold to stimulate the senses.

The Plaza’s iconic rooftop restaurant will serve contemporary culinary fusion with Niçoise touches in a relaxed and understated setting, whilst the adjacent stylish terrace bar, with its stepped seating, will offer unrivalled 360-degree skyline views. The glamorous Les Collonades champagne lounge with indigenous flavours and interiors inspired by the visual synergy of Nice’s tropical gardens and the sea will serve fresh seafood and an elegant afternoon tea. Anantara Plaza Nice Hotel will offer a serene retreat for the senses.
