Nice Côte d'Azur

The Thai group will open its first Anantara-branded property in France in 2022, on the French Riviera in Nice. For this occasion, Minor Hotels and Covivio have taken a big step forward by renovating one of the most iconic hotels on the Côte d'Azur.

The Plaza opened in 1850 and offers a remarkable Belle Epoque architecture, facing the Promenade des Anglais and the Jardin Albert 1er. After two years of work, the establishment will now offer 151 rooms and suites (including a 75m² presidential suite and 36 suites of at least 40m²) and will compete directly with the luxury hotels on the Promenade des Anglais.

Designed by the London-based David Collins Studio, the rooms and suites will be chic and refined, and some will have a view of the Mediterranean Sea. Ideally located at the entrance to Nice's Golden Square, the hotel has retained its famous rooftop, offering a 360-degree panoramic view of the Baie des Anges and Old Nice. Guests will also be able to enjoy a new spa with five treatment rooms, as well as a fitness area and a seminar space with seven meeting rooms and a ballroom that can accommodate up to 300 guests.

For the director of the Anantara Plaza de Nice, the new property will offer a unique experience within the Nice hotel market: "We see ourselves as a native brand that immerses itself in the local culture [...] We are in Nice to give our guests a local experience."

The renovation of the former Boscolo Plaza Hotel is part of Nice's desire to strengthen its positioning in the high-end and luxury tourism market with the arrival of several 4- and 5-star hotels in the coming years.
