Perched in Fourvière hill surrounded by ancient Roman ruins, Villa Maïa is the new quintessential luxury boutique hotel in Lyon. Opened in 2017, this sumptuously intimate hotel boast sweeping views over the city that stretch as far as Mont Blanc. An ideal destination for a romantic get-a-way or weekend trip, Lyon was recently elected the best weekend destination in Europe. The dynamic and modern city’s strength lies in its universally recognized traditions for gastronomy, silk, and cinema.
Imagined, designed and decorated by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, Jacques Grange, and Louis Benech, the trio was united in a quest for aesthetics and perfection which resulted in this exceptional hotel hallmarked by modernity and luxury. Comprised of 29 rooms, 7 suites, and a flat inspired by Japanese art; each space is decorated with a hint of ‘art deco’ that creates a zen environment. Rooms feature balconies with views of either the hotel’s garden or sweeping vistas of the city.
If you’re seeking an oasis, look no further than the hotel’s spa centered around a 20 meter long swimming pool. The ideal place for relaxation and rest, the pool’s cushioned chaise loungers face panoramic windows that frame the hotel’s exceptional gardens while allowing natural sunlight to fill the space. Additional features include a steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi and fitness room for the body and soul.
