The 3 most prestigious hotels in Monaco
The Hôtel de Paris, the tradition of luxury
It is the iconic hotel of the Principality of Monaco. Standing triumphantly in the heart of the Carré d’Or, opposite the no less prestigious Casino de Monte-Carlo, the Hôtel de Paris has welcomed the greatest international personalities to its walls for over 150 years. A symbol of Belle Epoque luxury on the Côte d’Azur, the Hôtel de Paris has recently undergone a major renovation, which has enabled it to restore its former glory by integrating all the essentials of modern technology and comfort.
209 luxury rooms and suites welcome you for a privileged stay. Bed linen in Pima cotton or “Andean silk”, Murano glass chandeliers, bath products by Guerlain… No detail has been overlooked to enhance the unique atmosphere of the Paris hotel. You will be conquered by the mythical Princess Grace suite and its 910m² of luxury on the 7th and 8th floors of the hotel, which will take you away for a magical experience unequalled on the French Riviera.
At the Hôtel de Paris, gastronomy is celebrated at its purest, and it is the culinary genius Alain Ducasse who orchestrates the hotel’s three restaurants. Alain Cerutti at the helm of the Grill combines the pleasure of a panoramic view of Monaco with the generosity of a convivial cuisine, awarded a star in the Michelin Guide. Dominique Lory cultivates the exceptional by perpetuating the 3-star gastronomy of the Louis XV, the signature restaurant of Monaco. The latest addition, ÔMER, is an ode to Mediterranean cuisine, sublimated by the chef Patrick Lainé.
The Hôtel de Paris is also a temple of relaxation, and it shares with the Hermitage hotel the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo, a unique space where body and mind are cared for. A wellness offer completed by the “Wellness Sky Club”, a new space on the roofs reserved for hotel guests, including a swimming pool, hammam, sauna, fitness area and lounge area with bar, a place entirely dedicated to relaxation.
The Hôtel de Paris is a hymn to luxury, gastronomy and well-being, a celebration of life in the principality. A must for any authentic dream stay in Monaco.

The Metropole Monte-Carlo, contemporary luxury
On the other side of the Place du Casino, the Hôtel Métropole Monte-Carlo is the perfect complement to the Hôtel de Paris. 125 rooms and suites welcome you in a Mediterranean style. Bright and designed like cocoons of softness, they allow you to escape from the hustle and bustle of Monaco for a while.
The culture of rare and precious luxury is just as present, but other names make the experience shine. At the helm of the interior design is renowned interior designer Jacques Garcia. He designed the public areas and most of the rooms and suites of the palace. His talent allows you to stay in an atmosphere that cultivates the Mediterranean spirit and independence of a private hotel. Decorator Didier Gomez completes this work by imbuing the Yoshi restaurant with his “poetic and modern vision of Japan” and by bringing chic and glamour to the Spa Métropole by Givenchy. Haute couture also permeates the experience at the Métropole Monte-Carlo. Karl Lagerfeld designed the hotel’s swimming pool and its surroundings, including the Joël Robuchon restaurant and the gardens.
To ensure that all your senses are awakened, the Métropole Monte-Carlo is one of the few hotels to broadcast its own signature sound. The musical atmosphere is feminine and signed Béatrice Ardisson, an atmosphere that evolves according to the moments and places of the hotel. The Métropole Monte-Carlo is also a celebration of international gastronomy. Restaurants with a clear identity, masterfully managed by chef Christophe Cussac, a disciple of Joël Robuchon, who has been in charge since 2004. A gastronomy sublimated by Chef Cussac and awarded 2 stars in the Joël Robuchon restaurant. The first Japanese restaurant in Monaco, Yoshi, signed by Joël Robuchon, has been awarded a Michelin star, thanks to the talent of chef Takeo Yamazaki. For a lighter atmosphere, the Odyssey restaurant by the pool is another gourmet alternative.
At the Métropole Monte-Carlo, the cult of beauty and well-being is finally a daily philosophy, and the Spa Métropole by Givenchy is the ideal place to refocus and/or sublimate yourself before joining the prestigious Monegasque parties. A stay at the Métropole Monte-Carlo is the assurance of a holiday where luxury, elegance and well-being are combined to perfection.

The Monte-Carlo Bay, ideal for young people and families
A true oasis built in the Larvotto district in 2005, the Monte-Carlo Bay offers a wide range of assets to attract guests who are eager to enjoy themselves in Monaco. Designed like a Mediterranean palace on the sea, the Monte-Carlo Bay has 332 rooms and suites, most of which (75%) face the sea to reinforce the spirit of a dreamy peninsula.
A stay at the Monte-Carlo Bay hotel allows you to experience a lively holiday without even leaving the resort. You can enjoy your days around the lagoon pool or at the spa, before moving on to the nightlife, sipping the tasty Blue Gin cocktails and then joining the mythical Jimmy’z Club or the hotel’s slot machines. The Monte-Carlo Bay is the hotel for epicureans of all ages in Monaco. It is in the hotel’s gastronomic tables that you will excite your taste buds, as exoticism is the order of the day. Chef Marcel Ravin cultivates his Martinique roots to deliver a cuisine that is both mixed and resolutely modern. He is at the head of the hotel’s three restaurants, the Blue Bay, 1 star in the Michelin Guide, the Orange Verte and Las Brisas, the summer restaurant of the MC Bay.
At the heart of the 4 hectares of outdoor spaces is the Monte-Carlo Bay’s trump card, its lagoon pool with a white sandy bottom facing the sea. It is in an idyllic setting that you can swim: waterfalls, kiosks or islands of greenery designed by the star landscaper Jean Mus are indeed conducive to escape. As the day progresses, the atmosphere changes and becomes festive when the resident DJ Nicolas Saad sets up behind his turntables facing the lagoon. Between swimming pool and sea bathing, you will have the choice since the Sea Bay, this beach with 10 sun beds, offers a 700m² swimming area in the Larvotto nature reserve.
The Monte-Carlo Bay is also a place of relaxation, as its 900m² Cinq Mondes spa is a cocoon of gentleness offering ritual treatments, a true voyage of the senses.
The Monte-Carlo Bay is the ultimate resort hotel, naturally appealing to families with children, young couples, business travellers or friends on holiday in Monaco.
