Saint Jean de Luz a small typically Basque town, between Biarritz and San Sebastian 15 minutes away from Biarritz airport. Between the Saint Jean historic town centre and the fishing port, the Grand Hôtel Loreamar is ideally located on the bay. The Grand Hôtel Loreamar offers privileged access to the town centre, only 3 minutes away via the seaside road or the beach.
52 rooms, including : 3 suites overlooking the beach, 2 adjoining rooms with private swimming pool facing the ocean and 25 with sea view.
After working few years as “sous-chef” in our hotel, the young chef Olivier Brouillet is now “head chef” of the Grand Hotel Loreamar kitchen.
Never sacrificing quality to a creativity of which he is fond, this highly gifted chef has now hoisted the gastronomic “Rosewood” restaurant to the foremost ranks of the region's best addresses. Gourmets celebrate a cuisine inspired by land and sea, featuring the freshness of fabulous ingredients that are savoured while watching the ocean waves.
Meaning “Ocean Flower” in the Basque language, Loreamar overthrows traditional concepts of thalassotherapy. Unique in its kind, the centre combines the most advanced techniques for wellness with the luxury and voluptuousness of real spas.
From extraordinary appointments with the stars to treatments from all four corners of the world, this is a new philosophy which will accompany you along the path to a personalised solution for getting back on form.
A melting-pot for all the various approaches to treatments, this temple to serenity has naturally decided to give priority to
one basic element, thanks to its exceptional location at the edge of a sandy beach: sea water !The treatment booths with a view of the ocean.The central hub of this Zen environment is a heated sea-water pool with jets and underwater massages (aqua sculpt).
A wonderful way of getting back in shape complemented by an array of iodized treatments such as sea-water jet showers, underwater showers, multi-jet baths and “sea rain” massages.
And since wellness has been pursued in all four corners of the globe for thousands of years, Loreamar has enriched this bubble of serenity with a selection of rituals and beneficial treatments from near and far. Turkish baths, oriental peelings, exotic massages, massages from all over the world...beneath vaulted ceilings, in an intimate setting where daylight casts its glow on noble wood.
As well as reserving a privileged welcome for children, the Grand Hôtel provides easy access to all the sports activities and cultural “curiosities” in the surrounding area.
Whether it's the fishing harbour of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, bearing the memories of tales about local sardine and tuna boats, the fortress of Socoa, the House of Louis XIV and the Infanta, tracing the first steps of Maurice Ravel, the Church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste or the splendid home of Edmond Rostand with its lovely gardens, all kinds of cultural tastes are fully catered for here.
The 18-hole golf-courses of Chantaco or La Nivelle, not forgetting the 8 other prestigious golf-clubs in the nearby area, all justify stays for fans of the little white ball, from the most congenial to the most challenging.
More typical, the Basque game of “pelote”, surfing and the region's other legendary activities divulge their secrets in sessions of initiation in Biarritz or Guéthary... Or you might perhaps like to learn more about the hinterland, by discovering half-timbered houses in the villages of Sare, Aïnhoa, Ascain and Espelette, offering a foretaste of Spain, just a stone's throw from the border. You can also explore the port of Fontarrabie, savor “tapas” in the old town of San Sebastian and visit the magnificent Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
