IHG has just opened Hotel Indigo Cagnes-sur-Mer, the brand’s first hotel on the French Riviera. Details are here.
This looks, on the face of it, like a very attractive option for someone who wants to enjoy life on the riviera but is put off by the scale and bustle of Nice and Cannes. With just 87 rooms, the Hotel Indigo is also very much a boutique compared to monoliths such as InterContinental Cannes, albeit this is currently closed for refurbishment.
Cagnes-sur-Mer sits between Cannes and Nice, and its attractions include a castle and a Renoir museum. It has a train station (marked as 1km from the hotel) which makes it easy to pop along to Nice, Cannes, Antibes or Monaco.
“As guests enter Hotel Indigo Cagnes-sur-Mer, they will be met with an array of light turquoise hues that contrast with rich darker blues to reflect the unique shades of the sea and the endless skies which the Riviera is known for. The soft furnishings throughout the hotel’s public areas continue to evoke a nautical feel, with decorative rugs that feature waved patterns, the use of soft curved edges, and light fittings which mimic the waves that lap up against the coastline.
Nodding to the destination’s link to notable French artists, the artwork that can be seen throughout the hotel has been specially curated, partnering with local talent. Thanks to a partnership with Eric Garence, the Cote d’Azur ambassador and poster designer, guests can send home a one-of-a-kind postcard to family and friends.”
Facilities include a rooftop pool and an Italian restaurant specialising in locally caught seafood. The hotel website says that a free airport shuttle service is available if you pre-book.
Rates seem reasonable, with random dates next May starting at around €150, albeit that rooms are relatively small. The hotel is a new build and so should be in excellent condition.
