3-star hotel in Biarritz

The Best Western Kemaris is ideally situated between the beaches of the Basque Coast and the vibrant Halles de Biarritz market district.



Our hotel designed in a Neo-Basque style promises a calm and inviting place to stay.


You will simply love all the charm of a hotel combining the traditional and the modern in the ultra comfortable surroundings that meet Best Western’s international standards. Bright and spacious, the hotel’s 49 rooms are split between the two face-to-face buildings and offer a natural and contemporary look and feel.

Our buffet breakfast featuring mainly local products made by Basque Country producers is served every morning from 7 am to 10.30 am. We offer a restaurant service if you wish to savour a nice glass to accompany a gourmet Basque plancha. Remember to book a space in our private car park for easy parking all year round. The Kemaris is a Best Western hotel.




Perfect location in Biarritz


The Basque Coast


We are situated a few minutes’ walk from the spectacular Basque Coast or you can admire the infinite views over the mountains and the coast as far as Bilbao.

Historic beach


The coastal path will take you all the way to the Biarritz lighthouse via Villa Belza, Port Vieux Beach, Virgin’s Rick, Port des Pecheurs, and Grande Plage with its casino and baths.

The Halles de Biarritz district


The Halles de Biarritz is a vibrant district just 500 metres from the hotel where you can savour some of the best local fare or sample the many tapas bars and restaurants until the small hours.



The Best Western Kemaris or “the energy of the sea” has formed a close relationship with Biarritz for over a hundred years.


From hosting rugby and Basque pelote teams to family celebrations to political debates, the hotel has been a part of the local community since 1914. Indeed, our four walls have been filled with the heart and soul of Basque culture – a combination of pride, dedication, hospitality and community – throughout our history.

This is the precious heritage we keep alive in our hotel that has undergone successive renovations through the years but is just as warm and inviting as ever.
