Although many luxury hotels in Monaco offer envy-inducing experiences, there are a few that surpass all others when it comes to attention to detail and stunning lavishness. If sea-facing escapes that boast addictive vistas, Frette linen and kitchens helmed by the most talented chefs get your juices flowing, read on. We’ve selected the five most awe-inspiring Monaco- luxury hotels for your next sensational visit.
Our handpicked selection of hotels offers convenience as well as luxury: reaching them is as easy as contacting a Monaco helicopter company. Nice airport is a seven-minute flight away from the Principality and, once there, you’ll be driven to your luxury hotel of choice. This means that getting to your dream destination is swift and smooth, not to mention enjoyable, as you can soak up breathtaking views over the French Riviera during your flight.
Rooms are commodious, flooded with natural light and feature sink-in beds that truly entice guests to skip breakfast. The lavishness continues in the marble bathrooms, where plush white robes and Hermès toiletries are just a few of the small touches that will add luxury to your stay. Spend lazy afternoons napping on come-hither sun loungers in the Odyssey, the garden, pool and lounge bar which boasts a Karl Lagerfeld-designed mural, no less.
This wonderfully indulgent hotel, designed by colour virtuoso India Mahdavi, positively screams luxury with its private beach, Olympic-sized pool and (100% organic) Michelin-starred restaurant. Thrill-seekers can go parasailing, kite boarding or power across the water on the newest-model jet-skis. Those with relaxation in mind can gaze at the
turquoise-hued Mediterranean from the luxury of their own cabin on the hotel’s private beach. An added bonus is being able to have a gourmet wood-oven pizza (or plenty of other delectables) delivered straight to your stripy cabin.
The Hermitage has everything you might expect from the best luxury hotels in Monaco: a Michelin-starred restaurant, private beach access, tastefully decorated rooms and a sun deck with magnificent views of the quays and gleaming superyachts. Spending the day practicing your golf swing or enjoying a ‘La Prairie’ beauty treatment in the hotel’s 6,600m² spa facility, are just a few activities you can indulge in. Evenings are reserved for sipping vintage champagne at the Crystal Bar before settling down for an exquisite dinner on their sea-facing terrace.
Hôtel de Paris
Its starring role in many films and photo-shoots, and its location right next to the Casino and Opera House, have given this luxury hotel an iconic status. Oenophiles will be glad to note that the hotel’s wine cellar stores more than 600,000 bottles of the world’s finest wines. But the cincher is the Michelin-starred Le Grill. Its retractable roof opens in summer, so you can delight on pan-seared scallops or Charolais beef under a starry sky while being serenaded by the sound of the sea.
The Principality’s one and only boutique-hotel is a favourite with superyacht owners and discreet travellers who value intimacy over five-star facilities. The rooms feature decors dreamt up by Hermès’ former design director Leïla Menchari and views over Port Hercules and its seagoing eye candy. The hotel’s staff members are relaxed, friendly and often recognise regular visitors by name. The only problem with this Monaco luxury hotel is that you won’t want to leave.
