PARIS—Renaissance Hotels has added a new property located in Provence. The Renaissance Aix-en-Provence Hotel is situated in the Forum Culturel district and less than five minutes from Cours Mirabeau.
Designed by Marseille architects Claude Sabin Nadjari and Rémy Saada, the hotel features contemporary design and a Provençal garden. Julie Fuillet of “From Here to There” Design Studio created the hotel’s 133 guestrooms and suites. The theme of bespoke craft continues throughout the hotel with exclusive pieces of furniture created by French designer Christian Ghion.
With more than 400 paintings and sculptures created exclusively for the hotel, guests have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a collection of contemporary art, curated by Isabelle Viatte of “Via Crea” agency. The exhibit titled “Haut La Main!” is brought to life through a special program of events with artists, personalities and entertainers.
Celebrated chef Jean-Marc Banzo offers a culinary experience in two distinct places within the hotel. Le Clos is a gourmet Mediterranean restaurant of just 40 seats with the motto, “the pleasure of the palate.” The chic bistro Le Comptoir du Clos features a sun-drenched terrace from which to take in stunning views of Provence. For a social occasion or RLife Live event, Renaissance Hotels’ signature entertainment program, the bar L’Avant-Scène is the place to be.
The YMALIA Spa at Renaissance Aix-en-Provence offers treatments by Cosmébio. Relaxation therapy is combined with the latest facial modeling techniques along with marine biotechnology innovations. The hotel also boasts an indoor swimming pool, sauna and fitness center.
