Indulge your desire to live like a French Emperor in France's Imperial Summer Palace, now the luxurious Hotel du Palais in the beautiful seaside resort town of Biarritz.

Grab a board and ride the waves in France's most famous surf spot.
Built for Napoleon in 1854, the Hotel du Palais was the opulent summer residence of the Royal Court. Brimming with the history and tradition of housing the crowned heads of Europe in the 19th- and 20th-centuries, this luxury hotel embodies the finest that French culture has to offer.

The 154 rooms and suites, elegantly furnished in Grand Siècle clipper ship style, exist to cocoon you in splendor. Live your own Belle Epoque as long as you stay.

The pampering doesn't stop once you leave your room. Five floors of the finest spa facility in Europe, the Imperial Spa with Guerlain, provides Jacuzzis, hammams, and saunas, while the magnificent indoor pool is a breathtaking attraction in its own right. And what would a true luxury hotel be without a world-renowned chef? The celebrated Jean-Marie Gautier and his team serve works of culinary art in the hotel's five restaurants and bars, including La Rotonde, which features breathtaking views of the Grande Plage and the Biarritz lighthouse.
