Situated on the French Côte d’Azur, the hotel has for a century been the sanctuary retreat for celebrated and prominent guests worldwide.
Over the past one hundred years, illustrious guests have included the novelist Somerset Maugham, Charlie Chaplin, Winston Churchill, Aristotle Onassis, Picasso, David Niven, Paul McCartney and Frank Sinatra.
Today, tradition continues with reopening that follows expansion styled by internationally acclaimed designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. And the hotel is still a magnet for elite international guests such as tycoons, aristocrats, politicians, film stars, artists and writers.
Along with a new wing is a world class destination spa and new La Véranda restaurant complementing redesign of famed Michelin star Restaurant Le Cap. Having one of the world’s most spectacular wine collections, the restaurant is located on a terrace facing the breathtaking views of the Mediterranean.
Deluxe suites include the Pine View with a delightful terrace overlooking a pine grove and the hotel’s gardens, suites with private swimming pools, and the unique Roof Top Suite sumptuously decorated by architect Alberto Pinto. In addition, the penthouse Cocteau Suite has an enormous terrace with stunning views over the Mediterranean from Nice to Monaco.
Not only is the newly-restored Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat renowned for international cuisine and luxurious staying, but it is also a convenient venue for world-class events such as Monaco Grand Prix and Canned Film Festival.
The hotel has therefore become a premier address for those attending such world-class events.
