    The Hôtel Royal in Évian les Bains : luxury and pleasure

    Hôtel Royal : a look back at the history of the most beautiful hotel in the world

    At the beginning of the 20th century, the golden age of thermalism in Europe, the city of Evian saw the influx of aristocracy and upper bourgeoisie from all over Europe. To welcome this prestigious clientele who have come to enjoy the virtues of the city's waters, the Société des Eaux Minérales d'Evian is building a luxury hotel with the aim of making it the most beautiful in the world. Even before its inauguration in 1909, King Edward VII of England gave it a follow-up, thus giving his name to the establishment.

    The Hôtel Royal spans the 20th century and remains a place steeped in history that has welcomed many celebrities. Crowned heads, writers, politicians and film or music stars follow one another in the luxurious suites of this mythical hotel.
    Located in the heart of a magnificent park hosting the Evian Resort hotel complex, overlooking Lake Geneva, the hotel enjoys an ideal location that offers calm and serenity to its visitors. Belonging since 1970 to the Danone group that acquired the Société des Eaux Minérales d'Evian, the hotel has managed to retain its character and adapt to an ever more demanding clientele. Ultimate recognition : the Hôtel Royal was awarded the status of a 5-star Palace in 2016.
