It’s not just holiday-goers who deserve to stay in the very best hotels. Business travellers should treat themselves to some well-earned luxury on their corporate trips too. And when you’re in the French Riviera, business travel Côte d'Azur style is a five-star affair.

Top-end corporate hotels aren’t too hard to find in this famously affluent and extravagant part of France.

Whether you need a grand suite with a big enough workspace, ritzy R&R options to accommodate inventive travel, or a selection of conference rooms equipped with the tech needed for meetings, rest assured there’s somewhere suitable for all types of Côte d'Azur corporate stays.

So, where are the best places to stay for premium-level business travel to Côte d'Azur? Well, whether it’s work or play time whilst you’re away, let’s take a look at your best options. 

Grand-Hotel Du Cap-Ferrat, a Four Seasons Hotel

You can always rely on the Four Seasons brand to accommodate your corporate stays. Located in the ultra-luxurious region of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Grand-Hotel Du Cap-Ferrat, a Four Seasons Hotel is the perfect destination for a team-building retreat or a more relaxed incentive trip to treat your hard-working team.

With its enviable location and abundance of leisure facilities, you can book them a stay in their own sophisticated sea view suite and let them play among the hotel’s exciting R&R offerings, like having a full body massage in the spa or taking a dip in the Olympic-sized swimming pool. 

You can book a range of tailor-made group experiences and excursions too, including chartering the resort’s million-pound yacht, taking part in fun and inspiring cooking classes, or going on a day trip in and around the charming local villages. 

However you spend your time, just make sure you come together at the end of the day with a table in one of the five restaurants, including the resort’s signature restaurant Le Cap, led by Michelin-starred Chef, Yoric Tièche.

Royal-Riviera Hotel

Also taking a prime spot in the privileged Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Royal-Riviera Hotel is another magnificent resort that’ll impress clients and your team. It’s the kind of place you take someone when they deserve a little luxury in their life.  

Combining its stunning beachfront setting with a variety of corporate and event facilities, this is the ideal place for a trip consisting of both work and play – the emphasis being on the latter, especially with a range of leisure activities being available in the high season (water sports, car rallies, and more).

But when work is required, you can take refuge in the various seminar and meeting rooms, including the bright and spacious Mediterranée Room (a large conference space with a capacity of 100 guests) or the hotel’s grander spaces like the garden deck or La Table du Royal, a fine-dining restaurant boasting outside seating with the best sea views in the house. 

However you need to use the facilities, the hotel’s designated events coordinators will adapt the chic and private spaces to meet your requirements and help you execute your corporate event with flying colours.

Terre Blanche

With Terre Blanche nestled nicely in 300 acres of beautiful Cannes countryside, you’d be forgiven for thinking this resort isn’t particularly known for its corporate events or functions. But in fact, it’s actually one of the top places in the entire Côte d'Azur for business travel. You’ll be welcomed with open arms (or a firm handshake). 

On top of being a top choice for luxury incentive travel, Terre Blanche also has plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces available to rent.

Most suitable are the six unique meeting rooms, each varying in size and style and totalling a whopping 7,000 square feet. Our personal favourites for business parties are the glam 200-capacity Fayence meeting space and the ultra-charming hotel patio courtyard.

Just make the most of the resort’s spectacular leisure facilities whilst you’re there, like swinging a club at one of the two world-class golf courses or booking a deep tissue massage at the serene spa.

This is the type of resort you’ll never want to leave – even if you do have important business to attend to.

Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée

Last on our list of the best corporate hotels is Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée. Set on a beautiful stretch of Nice coastline, corporate stays in the Côte d'Azur don’t come much more glamorous than this. 

Take one step inside the art-deco lobby and you’ll instantly know this is a special kind of place to stay, especially for teams on an incentive trip or corporate groups in town on business.

Split across the hotel there’s 1,700 square metres of flexible event space, the most impressive being the Salon Riviera, a grand hall boasting high ceilings and all the latest AV equipment to facilitate meetings, conferences, and social functions like gala dinners or charity fundraisers

For whatever reason you’re in town, grab the chance to wine and dine after the day’s work at Le 3e Restaurant Terrace, the hotel’s gourmet-style restaurant with picturesque ocean views and a delightful menu of Mediterranean fare. A meal here is the perfect place to show employees some gratitude or impress big, important clients.
