After undergoing a complete redesign, the iconic Hotel Martinez, one of the French Riviera’s most recognizable properties, has reopened.

The landmark hotel, part of The Unbound Collection from Hyatt, dates back to the 1930s.

Renovations to the hotel paid tribute to its illustrious past, which has included hosting numerous distinguished guests, while also preparing the property for the future.

The work was led by Paris architect Pierre-Yves Rochon, who combined the hotel’s original Art Deco style, with contemporary, chic design that takes inspiration from the colors of the French Riviera and the Mediterranean way of life.

The 409 newly renovated guest rooms and suites, for instance, feature white lacquer furnishings and subtle touches of sky blue or light yellow creating a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

The exclusive Suite des Oliviers and the Penthouse Suite offer one of Europe’s largest private terraces overlooking the sea and the Promenade de la Croisette.

New features at the hotel include Version Originale, a restaurant serving authentic regional dishes with a creative twist; Le Martinez Bar offering a festive and glamorous atmosphere; and Le Jardin du Martinez, an alfresco dining terrace with a Mediterranean garden setting.

The three new venues join the existing La Palme d’Or, the two Michelin-starred restaurants by Chef Christian Sinicropi.

“We are thrilled to re-open Hôtel Martinez as part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt and delivering story-worthy experiences for the modern traveler,” said Alessandro Cresta, general manager of Hôtel Martinez. “The renovations have given new life to the iconic building while preserving its historic charm, and we are excited to unveil these ahead of the Cannes Film Festival. We look forward to welcoming guests old and new to experience the relaxed, yet glamorous atmosphere that has become synonymous with the French Riviera.

The hotel also includes L.RAPHAEL Beauty Spa, which offers a range of treatments including a signature Oxy treatment, a non-invasive skin therapy using a stream of oxygen that delivers active ingredients.

The Kids Club, open in July and August as well as during the winter holiday period, will offer activities for young guests between 4 and 11 years old. The program includes individual and team games, as well as educational activities supervised by a professional staff.

The 409-room property is located on the Boulevard de la Croisette.

Hôtel Martinez is the second property in France in The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, joining Hôtel du Louvre in Paris, which is currently closed for renovation. Together the two properties represent a significant milestone for the brand in France and Europe.
