Ranked #1 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.
Tradition, position and Côte d’Azur cachet – Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc has it all.
Occupying a 19th-century chateau, the iconic hotel is surrounded by meticulously groomed gardens and century-old pine trees on the French Riviera.
A recent refurb has re-imagined the hotel at its Gatsby peak, retaining the traditional South of France elegance but restoring its legendary pizzazz.
The incredible views of the French Riviera are best taken in from the iconic heated seawater swimming pool carved into the rock face – or while basking in the warm Mediterranean sun in one of the quintessential, rustic seafront cabanas.
There’s also tennis, endless watersports, luxury yachting, a gym, yoga and a wellness centre to fill guests’ days before they indulge in a Dom Pérignon at the Champagne Lounge, followed by tapas and sushi at the on-trend Eden-Roc Grill.
Churchill, JFK, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Picasso, Scott Fitzgerald, Audrey Hepburn and other luminaries have stayed here. These days it’s a sanctuary from the glaring lights of Cannes for many a Hollywood A-lister.
If only these walls could talk…
