Experiences & The Exceptional

Offering exceptional destinations, 17 iconic establishments, attentive service and a focus on well-being, Barrière is a leading name in the luxury hotel industry.


The construction of Le Normandy in 1912 in Deauville marked the beginning of the Barrière's hotel business. François André, the associate of Eugène Cornuché, invented modern tourism there by creating the concept of the "French-style Resort”, which combines a casino, hotels and sports facilities on a single site. In just one century, Barrière has undergone a prestigious rise to power and experienced phenomenal success. Barrière operates 18 hotels, majority of 5 star and Palace, with more than 2,300 Rooms and Suites and 17 Ryads.


Principally based by the seaside, but also offering city and mountain locations, Barrière ventured abroad in 2009 to Morocco. It infuses each of its destinations with its identity and know-how. It offers a comprehensive range of services adapted to the environment and to the expectations of its guests, and always provides an authentic and personalised high-end service. Opposite the legendary Planches boardwalk in Deauville, on the Cannes Croisette or in the heart of Paris, the vineyards of Alsace or the Marrakech Medina, Hôtels Barrière are exceptional destinations.


Heritage & Modernity


Since 2013, Barrière has invested near €400 million to renovate its establishments. In the 1990s, Diane Barrière-Desseigne gave it up new momentum. She infused that inimitable "Barrière" style by initiating a long collaboration with interior designer Jacques Garcia. This was the first time that a hotel group had teamed up with an interior designer to renovate its establishments. Today, architects and designers such as Chantal Peyrat, Nathalie Ryan, and Alexandre Danan reinterpret the Hôtels Barrière identity and restore these legendary establishments to their former splendour and elegance while reinventing them with a modern touch.


Barrière is also continuing to expand both in France and abroad. In 2010, Barrière opened Resort Barrière Lille, an incredible glass showcase filled with light and situated in the heart of the city, designed by architect Jean-Paul Viguier. Once again, it has broken new ground by combining a hotel, casino, theatre and spa under one roof. In 2012, Resort Barrière Ribeauvillé was unveiled. After In mid-December 2016, the Hotel Barrière Les Neiges opened its doors in Courchevel and obtained the Palace distinction three years later. The Hotel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf in Saint-Barths has welcomed its first clients since October 2020. No matter what the destination is, the ever groundbreaking Barrière offers an innovative range of services to redefine the premier experience of leisure activities and well-being over the decades.
