The stars shine at the Palme d'Or of Martinez

The Martinez, one of the jewels of the Côte d'Azur, inaugurated in 1929, offered an unprecedented facelift last year under the leadership of Pierre-Yves Rochon. He is reborn from his ashes like a phoenix, brighter, more ethereal, in his Art-Deco style.
At the head of the Palme d'Or, an astonishing and precursor conductor, Christian Sinicropi, whose nature and seasons are the only masters in his eyes. A focus with Katya Pellegrino!

An Art Deco hotel from 1929

Hôtel Grand Hyatt Martinez

Legendary hotel since 1929, the Martinez taken over by a Qatari fund, and managed under the brand Unbound Collection by Hyatt , has found a second youth. From the entrance, the huge lobby sets the tone. The eye is then attracted by the key element: the chandelier. Spectacular, consisting of immaculate slats, its weight is 350 kg. Then, its majestic staircase, an original piece of Martinez, whose wrought iron banister with monograms, was climbed by the international stars of the Cinema who made the palace their home during the festival.

Blue and white

Blue and white colors punctuate the corridors and bedrooms. The decor is enhanced by mirrors reflecting the light of the Côte d'Azur. The sun enters through the large windows, illuminating shelves on which stand Mediterranean vases and sculptures of white coral. The result is a gentle warmth. But the highlight of the place is its restaurant: La Palme d'Or, orchestrated by its master chef, Christian Sinicropi, 2 Michelin stars.

A committed chef

Christian Sinicropi cooks by instinct, without following trends. It is by noting that some products were sometimes missing on the map, that he decides to create his menu in the form of cube with 8 facets, each proposing themes of products in 3 services: the South with fish, Vegetal with vegetables, Mediterranean oysters... It restores in the plate the environment.
Always in search for the ultimate taste, he dissects the modes of food and the alternatives that have become indispensable to him in order to preserve the planet. For him, the culinary heritage must be passed on. This committed is also a man of passion, with unfailing creativity, which takes you in new culinary ways.

My opinion
Hôtel Grand Hyatt Martinez

If you go to Cannes, make a stop at the Martinez to taste at the Palme d'Or, the sincere and atypical cuisine of its chef, Christian Sinicropi, a man of values, a great artist!
At the Martinez, the rooms have been renovated and are now bright. Privilege those who have sea view (Junior Suite). Go there preferably in May or June, because the beach is open and you can have breakfast on the terrace, which is more pleasant than in the breakfast room which may be crowded (09h / 09h30)
A service still to perfect. Many seminars, so many people!
