Travel : One To Watch – Intercontinental® Hotels & Resorts, Bordeaux

At House of Coco we love hearing about new luxury hotspots that we can frequent and so when we heard that one of our fave hotel groups were opening yet another fabulous destination we were thrilled.

The Intercontinental Hotels & Resorts is proud to unveil its latest signing InterContinental® Bordeaux – Le Grand Hotel, France. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the hotel has been elegantly converted from the current Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux & Spa and is IHG’s sixth InterContinental Hotels & Resorts property in France.

Commanding pride of place on Bordeaux’s main square, Place de la Comédie, among high-end boutiques and world-class restaurants, InterContinental Bordeaux has been elegantly refurbished to sleek modern standards by renowned French architect and designer Jacques Garcia, while preserving the property’s 18th century splendor.


The Gordon Ramsay Group brings charisma to the fine dining restaurant, Le Pressoir D’Argent, whose dedicated team of Chefs prepare uniquely seasonal dishes from the terroir of Bordeaux, all expertly matched with exceptional regional wines. “To open a restaurant in the wine capital of France with its world-class vineyards and glorious regional produce is extremely exciting,” says three Michelin-starred British Chef Gordon Ramsay.

Elsewhere, Jacques Garcia has also worked his magic in the stunning two-storey Les Bains de Léa spa, bathed in natural light throughout and leading out onto a terrace overlooking the rooftops of Bordeaux. World-class facilities include fitness, wellness and relaxation programmes, an indoor pool and hammam, 10 treatment rooms, 2 VIP treatment rooms, along with a Jacuzzi on the 360° rooftop beach, which beautifully recreates the atmosphere of a summer’s day in the Bay of Arcachon.

This iconic brand is going from strength to strength in France and this new hotel will further enhance the momentum behind the brand’s growth in Europe, notably with the opening of the InterContinental London® – The O2. We’re delighted to be working with Financière Immobilière Bordelaise on this unique property and look forward to expanding our partnership.”
