The Metropole’s palace-like visage takes us back to la belle époque. With its balls of pink roses, Renaissance art and Napolenonic stateliness, it’s no surprise that the hotel is a frequent location for high fashion photo shoots and dazzling weddings. If you’re after a fairytale, this is the place to find it.
Monte Carlo does opulence like nowhere else on earth, and at The Metropole, you are at the centre of it all. The prestigious Grand Prix track, 18-hole golf course and Casino Square are just a couple of cypress-lined avenues away.
After you hit luck at the Black Jack table, take your winnings to the 80 boutiques that lie underneath the hotel for a sample of French Riviera glamour.
The suites are classically styled but still feel contemporary. A king-sized bed, walk-in wardrobe, grand curtains, plus, the odd chandelier and column make for an utterly lavish stay.
Why We Like It
Joel Robuchon’s main restaurant at the hotel doesn’t have one Michelin star…it has two. And a third belongs to his open Teppanyaki-style kitchen and sushi bar, Yoshi. Enjoy even more culinary delights in the lounge, which buzzes all day and night with tea and cocktails.
It is fair to say the The Metropole is a specialist in the art of leisure. It even has its own lifestyle card, giving guests exclusive access to the pools, sun deck, spa, fitness studio, a private beach and admission into Monte Carlo casino.
The champagne is chilled and calling for you…
