Revamped Belle Epoque beauty on the Normandy coast with a destination spa and a glam restaurant overlooking the sea
This Belle Epoque beauty in the seaside town of Trouville, in Normandy, received a majestic makeover by Paris architect Jean-Philippe Nuel in spring 2015. The grand cream-colored façade, pillared entrance hall and enormous bay windows recall the town’s turn-of-the-20th-century glamour, when literary giants like Flaubert, Stendhal and Proust visited. The 103 guestrooms are done in pale grays and sea foam–blues, and they have high ceilings and modern amenities like Nespresso coffee machines and free WiFi. The suites are suitably lavish, with floor-to-ceiling windows and duplex layouts; the bathrooms feature egg-shaped basins and Gemology beauty products. Sip a glass of bubbly and enjoy the beach views from the bar’s 16-foot-tall bay windows, then sample contemporary Normandy cuisine at Restaurant 1912. Be inspired by Trouville’s long history of thalassotherapy, and treat your body to the spa’s signature treatment, Elixir de Jouvence, which incorporates seawater. The spa also features an indoor pool, a hammam, a solarium and a fitness center.
In the Area
Take a romantic stroll along Trouville Beach, where novelist Marguerite Duras was inspired to write her classic novel The Lover. Or try your luck at the super-luxe casino attached to the hotel. Take a trip to Trouville’s racy neighbor, Deauville, for some extra glamour and gleam. There you can indulge in some retail therapy at the designer boutiques in the town center, or splurge on a gourmet meal at any of the dozens of high-end restaurants. Perhaps the most famous of these is Augusto Chez Laurent, a nautically themed institution famed for its delicious lobster dishes.
