Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel

Fulfill Your Desire At The Ultimate OG

We hold a deep and genuine affection for the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel, a sanctuary revered globally as one of the most iconic and exclusive resorts. Whether it’s the preservation of a bygone era’s quaint allure and romance seamlessly interwoven with undeniable modernity and exceptional chicness, or its unparalleled location at the edge of the Mediterranean, embraced by the cascading French Alps, this haven stands as a beacon of opulence. Inaugurated with grandeur in 1929, the Monte Carlo Beach Hotel has asserted its place among the elite, beckoning us to set our course for a spring 2024 escapade to this Monte-Chic retreat or a tranquil long weekend chill-out spot.

Elsa Maxwell, a legendary social maestro, transcended the role of a mere guest, emerging as a pivotal figure entrusted by the administrator of the Société des Bains de Mer to allure guests and visitors to this exclusive retreat. High society, swayed by her influence, established an enduring connection to the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel. Presently, Ms. Maxwell is commemorated with the exquisite gourmet enclave Elsa, a sanctuary tempting with seasonally inspired culinary delights.

The stately salt-water Olympic-size pool, adorned with a high diving board, serves as a poignant reminder of the hotel’s original design, weaving romance into the fabric of its history. Today, surrounded by mature palm trees framing a captivating sea view, the pool transforms into a sanctuary of tranquility. Overlooking this aquatic haven is Le Deck, one of the Mediterranean’s most sought-after and vibrant lunch venues, completing the sensory panorama that defines this exclusive retreat.

 

 
 

A more idyllic setting could not have been imagined for such a glamourous jewel. On the far, and wooded, point of the property is La Vigie restaurant, accessible by both land and sea.

 
 

Elsa restaurant pays tribute to the seasons and local producers with the delicate creativity of chef Mélanie Serre.

 

Traditionally confined to the summer months, the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel has gracefully extended its embrace from early spring to late fall, transforming it into a year-round masterpiece. While serving as a splendid base for exploring the charms of Monaco, the true enchantment of the Monte Carlo Beach Hotel unfolds during the high season—a pilgrimage for those seeking to unravel the secrets that render it truly magical. Boasting a mere 40 rooms, including 5 junior suites, 7 double suites, and 2 double suites, each adorned in the style of the great ocean liners from the 1930s, this oasis beckons as an intimate refuge just steps away from the bustling Monte-Carlo Beach Club, Swimming Pool, and the exhilarating Sea Lounge Monte-Carlo.

In the spring of 2024, let the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel be the canvas for an exquisite escape—a fusion of history, modernity, and elegance, promising a retreat like no other in the heart of Monaco’s enchanting embrace.

Amidst the plethora of activities at the Monte-Carlo Beach Resort, savoring a chilled bottle of Rosé poolside or at the Beach Club stands out as one of the most enjoyable pastimes. The breathtaking views, hyper-attentive staff, and the opportunity for casual people-watching create an unparalleled experience. Jet-skiing and other water sports offer thrilling adventures, providing a unique perspective of Monaco from the water. The exceptional Spa du Monte-Carlo, featuring treatments by La Prairie and Clinica by Ivo Pitanguy, serves as a perfect respite after a day in the warm sun.

Definitely Monte-Carlo

Completing the trio of exceptional restaurants at the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel is the waterside La Vigie. Surrounded by lush greenery and perched at the point of a high cove that extends into the Mediterranean, La Vigie’s setting is divine, offering unparalleled views of Monaco and the sea.

Dining at any of the venues is an exquisite treat. During our stay, the excellent cuisine managed to overshadow the splendid views, especially during our highly memorable sunset dinner at Elsa on the terrace.

While the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel is undeniably exclusive, one need not be a royal or a CEO to be treated like one. Here, everyone is a VIP, made to feel regal when they stay at this special hillside hideaway, the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel.
