Philippe Starck designs Hôtel Ha(a)ïtza, a Wonder of France – This imposing neo-Basque hotel, close to the beach on the Bassin d’Arcachon, southwest of Bordeaux, has been stylishly reborn thanks to Philippe Starck.
Characterful bedrooms, a spa and swimming pool, tea room and gourmet restaurant make it a cool place in which to chill out.
The Haitza, as it was once know, was built in neo-Basque style by Louis Gaume in 1930. In 2016, the Ha(a)ïtza was totally revised by Philippe Starck. The timeless interior mixes creature comforts and modern artworks.

White and natural wood-striped panelling in the 38 rooms and suites is both pared-back and a tribute to Basque and Landaise farmhouses. Queen island beds gaze towards the window, and a fun mix of small black-and-white photos – a rabbit (or is it hare?) posing on a book, a watery couple rippling in the waves – and metal-framed mirrors hang from hooks around the room.
The smallest rooms are quite compact, but most have balconies. Junior suites have a lounge area with sofa. Most rooms have mirrors above the bed (very Starck), though the top-floor apartment has a wooden-vaulted ceiling, three balconies and countless doors.
