Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc: Best Hotel Experience Europe 2019


Nestled into a private bay on the Côte d’Azur of the French Riviera stands a timeless legend, the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. The guest list of this iconic hotel, founded in 1870, is an era-skipping who’s-who of the rich and famous, from Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemingway to Heidi Klum and Kylie Jenner. The resort’s blend of exclusive service — discerning, dedicated, and discreet — has been honed over the generations to perfectly match the luxurious setting. The hotel caters to the most refined palates with gourmet dishes created by a team of celebrated chefs, and for those with a sweet tooth there is an artisanal chocolate atelier hand-crafting delectable treats. Guests can enjoy a Mediterranean panorama from the heated luxury of the saltwater infinity pool, while 30 cabanas tucked into sculpted gardens offer residents secluded sea views. Sumptuous spa treatments offer a relaxing and rejuvenating respite after personalised coaching sessions with Olympic medallist trainers and private yoga instructors at the modern fitness facilities. There are 117 guest rooms in the palatial hotel and two private villas, all airy, light, and decorated in classic French style. A private limousine shuttle service completes the five-star experience. The Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc makes its attentive staff and grand setting available for exclusive events, and the entire property can be reserved for private, personalised use. The judging panel unanimously agrees: Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc is the winner of the 2019 award for Best Hotel Experience (Europe).
