Hotel Royal, since 1909 luxury in the heart of the Alps
The hotel is originally ordered by the Société des eaux minerales d’Evian. Their aim was to build the most beautiful hotel in Europe. It was inaugurated on the 6 of June 1909 and at that time got the title of the “most beautiful hotel in the world”. Its name, Hotel Royal came from the British king Edouard VII, who had from the start a suite reserved for his own pleasure.
The luxury environment, the healthy landscape brought many celebrities to the hotel that built its reputation decade after decade. To quote some of them:
- Marcel Proust meets Anne de Noailles
- Zanzibar Sultan meets the Maharadja of Kapurthala or the Queen of Portugal
- The Shah of Persia meets King Faycal from Iran
- Sacha Guitry meets several lovers
- The Sublime Greta Garbo meets Maurice Chevallier. Love is in the air
Year after year celebrities from all over the world met at Hotel Royal. In 2003, Jacques Chirac held the powerful G8 summit, so the entire world met in Evian. This amazing aura irradiates since then and is still part of the luxury palace heritage. The 5-star hotel enjoys a privileged location, a natural setting with breathtaking views of Lake Geneva. Its location close to Geneva as well as to rich and varied natural surroundings make the Hôtel Royal the perfect destination for access to a wide range of activities. This is a heaven of peace conducive to relaxation, one that will charm you with its gastronomic restaurant, the spa Evian Source, an outdoor pool with views of Lake Geneva and its famous golf course.
