A Two Night Stay At The Tiara Miramar In the South Of France; First Impressions & Photo Diary

Last month I headed to the south of France to enjoy a two night stay at the Tiara Miramar hotel on the Cote D'azur, I blogged about the trip in general with my postcards from the South of France post! I wanted to touch on our stay at the hotel a little more as it was an absolute gem and we had such a wonderful few days, come and explore the hotel with me...

The room...

We were lucky enough to stay in the Sea view junior suite which had an incredible balcony, lounge area and Italian shower. The room decor was exquisite, with a chic yet relaxed vibe. We also received a tour of the hotel where we had a peek inside the Miramar Suite (which was absolutely insane FYI) and something I'd definitely recommend for a big family. The suite was huge and the above picture I snapped of the bathtub - which resembled a hot tub big enough for 6 people!

I felt so at home in our suites and loved the room, it wasn't too big that it felt too spacious, the colour scheme was really warm and welcoming with a slight oriental feel. Oh, what I'd do to be back there sitting on my balcony watching the sea and reading my book, *sigh...

The spa...

On our last day before we headed home, we spent some time relaxing in the Tiara Spa, the decor felt really luxurious and I felt instantly relaxed as I entered! The spa is spread out over two floors, stocks heavenly Sothys spa products and also has a sauna, steam room and relaxation room for guests to enjoy.

We all enjoyed an hour long oriental massage before heading back to the airport to catch our flight with Monarch. My treatment was one of the dreamiest massages I've ever had, the pressure was perfect and I felt like the masseuse knew where all my knots and tension was and she worked them out which felt so good! Afterwards me and Roshina, took a tour of the grounds in our robes and slippers which was so comfy!


We dined at the Bistro M the evening we arrived at the hotel and enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal washed down with some red wine, the scallops were divine and there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant. We ate breakfast in the restaurant and also enjoyed lunch there one day, the restaurant was of an amazing standard and the food second to none.

During the warmer months the hotel opens their Moya restaurant, overlooking the sea this is where guests will enjoy a more relaxed vibe and a buffet style dining experience. I'd love to head back in the warmer months and experience this hotel as it was such a beautiful setting - I can imagine how pretty it would look of an evening!

The grounds & swimming pool...

On the last day I did some exploring of the hotel and took some snaps, the swimming pool looked so serene and peaceful (we didn't go in as it was freezing!). The grounds of the hotel were stunning and it felt like every corner you turned you discovered something new and picturesque! I'd love to return to the hotel in the summer to fully appreciate the views and experience the outdoor dining and pool!

If you're looking to stay at the Tiara Miramar hotel which I strongly suggest you do (you can get a return flight to Nice with Monarch from as little as £98!). This hotel is great as it's open all year round so even in the colder months if you're looking for some downtime then this is the place to escape to as you can enjoy the spa, hire a car and head into Cannes for the day - which is only 6 miles away or the hotel hosts various activities such as hiking, bike riding or hiring road buggies, which we did for the day and it was the funnest thing ever!!

To book at the Tiara Miramar hotel, nightly rates start from €160/£113 based on two people sharing a double room on a B&B basis, if you're looking for a more intimate hotel then nightly rates for the sister hotel Tiara Yaktsu start from €190/£134 based on two people sharing a double room on a B&B basis! I couldn't recommend this hotel anymore and think it's the perfect getaway come summer or winter!

Have you been to the south of France before? Would you consider visiting?

Christmas Gift Guide - Best Of: Male Gifts

Whether it's your dad, boyfriend, brother or friend, males can always be a bit tricky to buy for, we're quick to assume that they'll love the DVD or socks we bought them but do they really like to be that easy to buy for? I've put together a gift guide with not a sock or DVD in sight, here are my top picks for the males in your life...

Clarins Men Shampoo and Shower - £19: In the last year or so my dad has really gotten into his skincare and more of a routine when it comes to grooming, this two in one product is great for males as they tend to love any product that helps them get ready quicker. For £19 this shampoo and shower products comes nicely packaged in a box and would make a great filler present!

Avon Attraction for Him Eau de Toilette - £15: A great budget aftershave for just £15 for a 75ml bottle, it's a long lasting scent so you'll only need a small amount each time (better value for money!). With notes of rich ginger root, magnetic mush and smoky woods, a great everyday fragrance!

Infruition Sport Water Bottle - £15.99: This is the perfect gift for any male sport love (aren't they all?!), this Infruition water bottle is the smart way to stay hydrated. Let's face it, none of us drink as much water as we probably should, Infuriation have designed these bottles to make drinking water, well, less boring! You can choose your fruit combination and put it in the chamber (in the middle of the bottle) which then infuses your water with the fruit flavours, genius! A great affordable product too for something that's useful and a little different!

M&S Checked Scarf - £25: This checked grey scarf is a great all rounder product that I can see either my dad, brother or granddad wearing. It's a lovely colour palette and print and is neither too old or too young, a great all rounder present if you're unsure of what to buy a loved one!

T.M.Lewin Navy & Burgundy Check Shirt - £34.95: I love this shirt and it's something I can see my dad wearing daily as he really suits autumnal colours such as burgundy and navy, he also wears shirts everyday for work so a shirt would be a great gift for him. For just under £35 this shirt is great quality and would make a lovely gift!

Murray Detoxifying White Clay Body Cleanser - £30: If you're looking to buy for a male that's into his grooming or sports then this is a great product for them! The creamy, foaming clay cleanser draws out impurities whilst gently exfoliating and moisturising the skin, a great product to use post exercise to detox!

T.M.Lewin Burgundy Spot Scarf - £39.50: I love colour and print for winter! It's a great scarf to wear with more formal outfits and evening wear, priced at £39.50 it's slightly more expensive but the quality is incredible and I feel it's more of an occasion scarf rather than everyday!

Thierry Muglar A*Men Triple Force Gift Set - £64: I absolutely love this gift set and feel it would be a great gift for any male in your life, the fragrance plays on two intense, vibrant dimensions; 'woody oriental' (patchouli and vanilla) and 'toasted' with arabica coffee. The bottle is inspired by a whiskey flask and can be endlessly recharged with eco-refills!

What is your favourite gift from this guide? Any thoughts on what you're buying this Christmas?
