Positioned on a headland between two pristine beaches, the spectacular Hotel du Palais is a symbol of French excellence. Originally built as the private residence of the Emperor Napoleon III and Empress Eugénie, it today features 150 rooms including 30 suites, the award-winning Le Spa Impérial, three fantastic restaurants, a heated outdoor pool and your own putting and pitching green.
Just steps from the pretty town centre of Biarritz, its surroundings are packed with activities to inspire and delight. There are great golf courses, beaches that sweep towards the Pyrenees and nearby Spain, and Basque villages to explore inland.
The Residential, Imperial and Royal Suites can be made up of one, two or three bedrooms connecting with a spacious living room. Each room is uniquely furnished, with lavish touches like Burmese teak, Carrara marble and Italian glass mosaic. All offer spellbinding views of the untamed ocean.
Hotel Du Palais serves a continental and buffet breakfast every morning. There are 3 restaurants, including the Michelin Star Villa Eugénie, a tea room in the spa and a chic piano bar.
Luxurious amenities and state-of-the-art facilities make Hôtel du Palais a fabulous home-away-from-home. Le Spa Impérial is the ultimate place to indulge and unwind. Explore the varied pleasures of its five spacious floors and be thoroughly pampered with treatments by experts from around the world.
Overlooking the Grand Plage, the California-style salt-water pool appears a natural extension of the Atlantic Ocean. It offers two 33-metre swimming lanes, and private cabanas are available upon prior request. The pool deck is ideal for sunbathing or to enjoy a cocktail while you watch the sun set over the sea.
A pitch and putt with bunker and a separate putting green are open year round. Practice at the hotel before taking on one of the many splendid 18-hole courses along the Basque Coast.
