We get many requests for off-the-beaten path experiences for our clients in Italy – places where clients can go and the numbers of Americans are at a minimum. We also get requests for alternatives to the French Riviera and the Amalfi Coast. In 2016 we added Royal Hotel Sanremo to our Collection, an exclusive 5-star hotel rich in history and tradition. It is located in the midst of a colorful park with splendid views over the Mediterranean, so close to sandy beaches and town center with its Casino and elegant boutiques.
Only 45 minutes from Nice International Airport and 25 minutes from Monte-Carlo, Royal Hotel Sanremo is an ideal choice for guests seeking relaxation, intimacy and luxury.
Opened in 1872, Royal Hotel Sanremo has been home to European royalty, high society, celebrities and discerning travelers worldwide, and it remains one of THE places to be on the charming Italian Riviera. It features 126 individually decorated rooms and suites. This old-world grand hotel has a spacious lobby with panoramic views, a piano bar, as well four restaurants serving regional, Mediterranean, international and gourmet cuisine, children’s playroom and outdoor playground.
This is such a fabulous location for experiencing the sunny and romantic Mediterranean. Guests can enjoy the hotel’s award winning spa, the outdoor heated sea-water swimming-pool with children’s section, designed by the architect Giò Ponti, a sun terrace, a tennis court, and fitness room. The Royal Wellness Spa has high-end treatments, massage, no prescription wet zone with large hydromassage pool, emotional showers, Turkish bath, Vitarium and relaxation area. The wide choice of outdoor activities include a sandy beach 200 meters from the hotel with bathing huts, umbrellas and sunbeds (these are free to hotel guests – on the French Riviera this can cost €50 per day or more), water sports nearby, and golf.
The area is also surrounded by fascinating medieval villages, and visitors can enjoy enogastronomic tours with wine tasting and excursions to the French Riviera. Did you know that this region of Italy rivals Tuscany and Umbria with its olive oil production? There is even an olive oil museum nearby.
For parents looking for a romantic break while on vacation with kids, the hotel offers lots of activities for the little ones, including cooking classes!
