Possibly the most renowned resort area in the world, the French Riviera stretches west from the Italian Riviera through Nice, Monaco, Cannes and Antibes along the Mediterranean coast. Its origins as a fashionable resort can be traced back to the late 19th to the early 20th century, when it became popular with the British upper class. Originally the French Riviera was a winter resort, known for its mild climate as compared with that of other places in northern Europe. Later the Riviera enjoyed much more popularity as a summer resort.
Plentiful attractions, first-class amenities and sophisticated atmosphere of the French Riviera make it a renowned vacation destination all-the-year-round. However, the resort owes much of its popularity to its stunning French Riviera Spa - the Hotel Martinez, seen as a fantastic getaway in the heart of Cannes. With its tranquil terrace and soothing interiors, this wonderful spa captures the glamour of Cote d'Azur.
Together with the rooftop pool overlooking the Bay of Cannes, and the private beach with a pier of sunbathing, it offers all comforts and pleasures you can get from the ideal vacation. From the four-hand Ylang Ylang massage to the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage and the traditional Swedish massage, the French Riviera Spa offers you a wonderful opportunity to rest your body and spirit, whether you are looking for a relaxing massage or beauty treatments. This 900-square-meter area offers body and facial care, hydrotherapy, massages, phytotherapy, lymphatic drainage and thermal mud wraps. A solarium and sauna are great extras, while the outdoor lounge chairs contribute to the feeling of beatitude. The spa uses exclusively Givenchy products.
Home to the renowned French Riviera Spa, the Hotel Martinez rivals such top resorts as the Carlton, Majestic and Noga Hilton. The decor aims at the Roaring Twentieth style, with all units boasting wood furnishings, marble bathrooms, pastel fabrics and beautiful carpets. The hotel offers its guests 415 luxury rooms with air conditioning,
soundproofing, mini bar, safe, plasma TV and DVD-CD player. All the guest rooms feature sculptures, paintings and works of art from the thirties. The panoramic suites are equipped with a private sauna and a hydro-massage system.
