Thanks to its gorgeous Mediterranean coastline and the Cannes Film Festival, the glittering Cote d’Azur has swapped its fishing-village reputation for something a little more glamorous. Follow Hollywood’s finest to the French Riviera, and you’ll find sun-drenched beaches, mountain views and plenty of chic French style.
One good place to start: Hotel Baie des Anges, perched above the beautiful town of Antibes. Looking to nearby Grasse and its perfume heritage for inspiration, the hotel fills its spa and restaurant menus with lavender and thyme. Aromatherapy treatments join authentic Provencal flavors in facilities that include three seawater pools, a solarium and a restaurant that overlooks the traditional villages that influence its dishes.
The hotel’s guestrooms are split between two buildings, connected by a glass gallery. Standard Alpilles rooms, located in the adjacent building, make the most of the impressive scenery, with views of the countryside and pool. Superior Provence rooms, in the main building, overlook the city. Both room types measure 323 square feet and offer a private balcony.
Under the expert lead of chef Lyes Abidi, the hotel’s L’Angélus restaurant draws its inspiration from Baie des Anges and the traditional villages it overlooks with a regional and seasonally focused menu. While tiled floors and white tablecloths contribute to a natural décor, the cuisine is big on color and flavor, showcasing the best of the area’s local suppliers and Mediterranean ingredients. For dessert, there’s a pastry chef with a serious talent for souffles.
Drawing inspiration from nearby Grasse and its perfume roots, the hotel’s Marine Spa incorporates essential oils and aromatherapy into its treatments. Locally grown lavender and thyme feature in a menu of body, massage and facial therapies, while three sun-drenched seawater pools and a solarium make the most of the Provencal landscape.
Located at the foothills of the southern French Alps on the Côte d’Azur, Antibes is blessed with sea and mountain views. You’ll be within easy reach of the medieval villages of Saint-Paul de Vence, Gourdon and Biot. The fragrance shops of Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, and the sun-drenched beaches of Cannes are also popular excursions.
How to Get There
This was not 4 star it is basic and the staff are really not helpful. The rooms need a revamp, spa area is nice but the main pool needs a refurb. Was free tea and coffee but was not told about this, saw it when we left. A/C noisy and other guests partying until late. Not as quite as it looks. Should have a seprate wing for the dogs and not mix them as they all bark! Dog hair all over the furniture!
3rd visit to the hotel and never disappointed. The facilities are excellent and the view from the terrace is stunning. A shuttle bus is provided for the train station and Antibes so this gives the opportunity to explore the Cote d Azur. Outdoor heated pool and amazing spa.The hotel consists of a hotel based rooms and studios offering self catering as an option, staff have always been helpful pleasant and good humoured I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel.
I initially booked for 11 nights, but left after 2 nights of stay due to unreliable and hostile customer service I received. Oliver, the receptionist, yelled at me on the phone and called me im slow and made fun of me not speaking French. I was very offended and saddened by this low standard of service towards non-white customer who do not speak French. this hotel has a shuttle service from city center / gare d'antibes to the hotel, but the time table changes all the time with no announcement. Even though I have provided with my phone number to get picked up at City Center, the driver took off without me, In fact I have waited more than 50 minutes for a shuttle, and called the hotel two times to get picked up, the driver did not look for me nor called on my phone which was provided to avoid such case.
After 30 minutes passed since my original pick up time, the driver finally called and told me I am slow and I was not at a designated stop. In fact I waited there for more than 50 minutes. Since I am not fluent in French I asked the driver to call a taxi for me, Oliver said "You cannot even speak French? That's why you need a shuttle. You look for a taxi yourself. I never call a taxi for you. Speak French," It was so offensive and rude. He hung up on me.
After I took a taxi I called the hotel reception for 20 minutes, no one answered. Is this 4 star hotel? NO. It is a terrible hotel with terrible work standard.
I made an official complaint to the Expedia and the hotel staff's display of unprofessionalism need to be known by travelers. Even I asked for the hotel manager several time to different staffs all of them answered he is not here. I have left a note to the manager which described the incident at check-out, I have never received a call. This is how this hotel treats international guests. Please do not stay here unless you are white or French, nothing is on time and nothing is as described on the Expedia.
