Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced the reopening of Hôtel du Palais Biarritz, which is part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand, a collection of one-of-a-kind hotels from historic gems to revitalizing retreats. Paying homage to the property's original architecture and history, the hotel and the majority of its 86 guestrooms and 56 suites have been meticulously restored to reflect the palace's iconic past in French history.

The only hotel with the recognition "Palace de France" on the French Atlantic coast, Hôtel du Palais in Biarritz is a majestic property that was first built in 1854 by Napoleon III for his wife Eugénie de Montijo. The renovation process has rejuvenated and embellished its original and unconventional splendor, respecting the hotel's history and legend while modernizing certain elements with the guest experience in mind. The hotel's unique furnishings, rare paintings and refined tapestries reflect the palace's history.

Guest rooms that blend tradition and modernity

The hotel features 86 rooms and 56 suites with areas varying from 301 to 1,076 square feet (28 to 100 square meters) and elegantly decorated with a Second Empire Style that remains true to the original architecture and history as a Palace. Guest rooms on the top floor feature an extraordinary marine ambiance, highlighted by nautical themes reminiscent of cruise ships with rounded windows and portholes.

Gourmet restaurants emphasizing local produce

Guests can enjoy refined, locally inspired culinary creations from the Pays Basque region at the hotel's restaurant, La Rotonde. The new Chef, Aurélien Largeau, and his team are serving up creative dining experiences for guests looking to make exciting memories. Elsewhere, for those looking to relax and unwind, the Napoleon III Bar offers a menu of carefully selected gins, whiskeys, and vintage champagne in an intimate, sophisticated atmosphere.

Wellbeing experiences

With 32,291 square feet (3,000 square meters) spread over four floors, the Imperial Spa is a peaceful haven, featuring an indoor freshwater pool, whirlpool, hammam and sauna. Outdoors, an enticing seawater pool overlooks the ocean, while the famous cabanas on the waterfront offer guests a moment of relaxation. The pool cabanas each boast sunbeds, towels, pool as well as beach access and a private changing room, shower, toilet and free Wi-Fi. Dedicated pool hosts offer care for each guest by serving refreshing amenities or lunch poolside.

Hôtel du Palais joins Hôtel du Louvre in Paris and Hôtel Martinez in Cannes, as part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in France. A compilation of independent, one-of a-kind hotels, the brand caters to guests looking for a sophisticated yet unscripted experience when they travel.
