EVIAN : ROYAL RESORT HOTEL REOPENING AFTER WORKS

EVIAN : ROYAL RESORT HOTEL REOPENING AFTER WORKS

REOPENING AFTER WORKS 

Entrusted to interior design architect François Champsaur and François Chatillon, senior architect at Les Monuments Historiques, the renovation of the Hôtel Royal, which is due to reopen in July 2014, is a large-scale project. Respecting the original design, the aim is to restore this centennial hotel to its former luminous glory. Blending historical heritage with the latest trends in contemporary design, the first- floor rooms have been restyled in elegant harmony. From the bar to the great hall, the wine cellar to the library, Gustave Louis Jaulmes’s neo-Baroque frescos that grace the building’s vaults and domes have regained their former lustre. Half of the hotel’s 150 bedrooms and suites have been restored and modernised. The delicate patina on the period furniture in precious woods – mahogany, rosewood, Ceylon lemonwood – specially designed for their original setting, has been restored. On the sixth floor, hitherto intended for meetings and conferences, luxurious private suites have been converted, whose view of the lake and the Alps reaches new heights. On the ground floor overlooking the garden, a new conference centre has been opened. In the Les Fresques restaurant, the straight lines of the leather and blondwood furniture and the lighting from the brass chandeliers compliment the curved strokes of the frescos and reinvent the place’s original magic. 
Alone, with family, friends or couples, the whole team has at heart to make the Hotel Royal the casket of your best moments with ease.
Spend the door, enter ... The Royal Hotel and its staff will welcome you !
