The characteristic façade of Hôtel Barrière Le Westminster has just been adorned with its fifth star

Overlooking the lights of the legendary Le Touquet lighthouse, the characteristic façade of Hôtel Barrière Le Westminster has just been adorned with its fifth star, reaffirming its status as an iconic hotel in this destination. This Jewel of Le Touquet has therefore become the only 5-star hotel on the Opal Coast, from the Belgian border to the Seine-Maritime.

After a significant period of renovation, completed in September 2020, it has been restored in the British-French style of prestige Art-Deco, with architect-interior designer Bruno Borrione incorporating the simple and precise luxury of modern comforts for an authentic welcome provided by attentive and caring teams. Here in Le Touquet, you are invited to discover 104 new Rooms - including 9 Junior Suites and The Suite - in an ambiance that combines hues of bronze, pale grey, Prussian blue, walnut, Chinese lacquer and Sienna.

The Opal Coast forms the backdrop to Barrière in “The West”, as a chic and simple meeting place. This colossal, long stone and brick building, that is almost a hundred years old, just two and a half hours from Paris, is a captivating example of escape, taste and well-being. With the flavours of a Michelin-star restaurant, which has been awarded for fourteen years and is run by William Elliott and his team, the best personalised NUXE spa treatments, and the attentive welcome and care for children provided in a dedicated space at the Studio by Petit Vip. In Le Touquet, Opal goes hand in hand with stars. Barrière dreams of new horizons here with you.
