Hotel Barrière Le Normandy – Deauville

Hôtel Barrière Le Normandy is an amazing 5-star hotel in Normandy next to the famous Barriere Casino. Just two hours from Paris in the seaside town of Deauville, the Royal Barrière is open from March to October. Built in 1913. With a sumptuous 1900s architecture, it dominates the coastline with a majestic seafront presence.


Barrière Hotels

Le Normandy is one of three grand Groupe Barrière hotels in Deauville, along with Le Royal and L’Hôtel du Golf.  But if you want to do it in style, this is the place to come with its Normandy-style half-timbering à la belle époque. Host to countless celebrity guests over the years from Winston Churchill and Coco Chanel to Prince Charles.  The listed domed lobby lounge is like a sociable crossroads between town and seaside entrances, spa, bar and restaurant.


Located in the center of Deauville, just a stone’s throw from major French fashion designer boutiques. The Royal Barrière is also an ideal starting point to explore Normandy’s rich architectural and historic heritage like the Landing Beaches or the Mont-Saint-Michel. During the day, guests can also claim a sun lounger by the heated swimming pool or a cabana on the beach, or tour the area on one of the complimentary bicycles.

A perfect luxury hotel for shopping, beachwalks & dining in the Deauville area.


The Facilities

The hotel’s swimming pool glistens under the retractable transparent roof, inviting guests to plunge into sparkling waters. The hotel is also home to a gym and tennis courts and offers guests bikes to borrow. The American Bar tempts guests with cosy interiors and a selection of refreshing drinks.  And the hotel’s restaurant, La Belle Époque – La Table Barrière, invites guests to enjoy traditional local cuisine in elegance.

Rooms & Suites

In the 271 spacious rooms and suites, decorator Nathalie Ryan (former designer of Dior boutiques) has kept the atmosphere of bucolic toile de jouy print fabric walls and photos of the beach and harbour.  And put the emphasis on comfort in king-sized beds, casual armchairs and simply styled furniture. The bathrooms are particularly attractive with stripy wood washstands and grey mosaic. Many have baths with a clever button to choose between bath or shower jet; some have walk-in showers, suites have both.


Food & Drinks

The light-filled Belle Époque restaurant has kept its chandeliers but gone for less-formal style with natural wood tables, sleek velvet chairs and mosaic of a beauty wafting across the floor. The focus is on updated brasserie dishes, like sea bass or salmon ceviche, steak tartare or steamed cod and comfort desserts.

But it’s the breakfast that really stars here, as guests flock for the hot and cold buffet from scrambled eggs and bacon, Normandy cheeses to apple tart and flans. The clubby panelled all-day Normandy Bar specialises in whisky and calvados, with piano singers some evenings, tea and light meals in the afternoons. Staff can also book tables at other cafés and restaurants in the Barrière group, including several along Les Planches.

The Spa

Spa Diane Barrière, which specialises in Aerial Wellbeing for the Future™ – energising treatments combining high-tech ultraviolet light and sound therapy with ancient Chinese massages. You can come for a single session or personalised two-to-six-day cures. though the frothy white Oxygen cocktails in the spa bar clearly take a bit of getting used to. Adjoining it are the gym, sauna, hammam, and rooms for yoga and pilates classes, while the glass-roofed swimming pool is kept at a cosy 30°C.
