Why we choose The Monte Carlo Beach

The glamour and magic of Gatsby lives on at Monte Carlo Beach

  • Relax in the heated, Olympic-size outdoor seawater pool
  • Each accommodation has water views
  • Shuttles transport you between the resort’s facilities

All of the top hotels in Monaco have a certain decadence, but The Monte Carlo Beach’s vibe is a specific kind of decadence: Jazz Age-meets-Riviera. It has the intimacy of a luxurious Roaring 20s private residence plus contemporary interiors that are very Mediterranean. Clearly, the combo works. In recognition of its evocative atmosphere, the hotel received the 2012 Prix Villégiature for “Best Interior Hotel Architecture in Europe.”

Any room – they all have great sea views.

What you need to know about the hotel

A heavenly cove on the Mediterranean with leisure activities like massages and water sports

  • The Beach Club is a chic place to enjoy al fresco relaxation, with a huge seawater pool, private beach and elegant cabanas
  • The two-bedroom Sunshine Suite has Baroque-style elements and a wooden terrace with garden views and a Jacuzzi
  • A complimentary Children’s Club keeps kids active with afternoon workshops such as percussion and guitar lessons, cooking sessions and treasure hunts

Monte Carlo Beach is a little less formal than its sister hotels—and smaller, too, with an intimate 40 rooms and suites. All accommodations have exceptional views of the sea, and the hotel’s design—private staircases linking the loggias to the promenade—conveys the feeling of bungalows on the waterfront.

All of the amenities are big hits, including the mirrored outdoor pool lined with mosaic tiles, private beach, onsite spa and five seasonal restaurants and bars serving the freshest Mediterranean cuisine. As part of the Monte Carlo SBM resort, you get access (usually free) to nearby facilities like an illustrious 18-hole golf course, 23 tennis courts and one of the most famous casinos in the world.

Where is it and what's nearby

Monte Carlo Beach has a seafront location on the eastern edge of Monaco

  • Take advantage of free admission to the aqua complex at Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo, with a huge indoor seawater pool, hammam and sauna
  • The nearby Monte Carlo Country Club will bring tennis lovers to tears, with 21 clay, two DecoTurf and five floodlit courts
  • Nouveau Musée National de Monaco consists of two properties that constantly rotate top-quality modern art collections—from paintings to sculptures to huge installations

Monaco is a tiny principality between France and Italy that has taken the best from both cultures and spun those elements into something entirely its own. The result is a glamorous playground that regularly attracts international high rollers.

Monte Carlo Beach is actually outside of Monte Carlo, though in this small country, it’s not far from anything you want to do or see. People usually come to Monaco for “sinful” pursuits such as beach lounging (in barely-there suits) and world-class casino action, but cultural offerings like several good museums and the lovely green space of Jardin Exotique are worth checking out as well.

How to enjoy Monaco

Monaco was first brought to the attention of the wider world when darling of the silver screen, Grace Kelly, married into royalty and became Prince Grace of Monaco. The miniature principality, (it barely stretches to a square mile), knows how to do luxury well

  • A quick guide: Monte Carlo is a district of Monaco (like Manhattan in NYC or Mayfair in London); now join the cognoscenti who know
  • For exquisite upscale shopping, browse the stores of Cercle d’Or, Avenue de Monte-Carlo, Avenue des Beaux Arts and the Allées Lumières
  • For three Michelin-Star dining, make a reservation for Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse, the signature restaurant of the elegant Hotel de Paris

From the fairy tale gilt and stucco of the cliff top Prince’s Palace to the marble and chandeliers of the casino, extravagance abounds. Monaco is a playground of the wealthy and home to Greek shipping magnates, multinational oil millionaires and celebrity A listers such as Ringo Starr, Roger Moore and Novak Djokovic, possibly drawn by the guarantee of excellent service and wonderful Mediterranean weather.

One of the best ways to arrive in Monaco is by yacht. Moor in Port de Fontvielle for wonderful views of the cliffs climbing high up the steep-sloped principality. Perhaps the best address in town, especially during the annual Monaco Grand Prix that races around the streets of Monte Carlo and traces the harbor’s edge, is aboard a yacht in Port Hercule. Failing that, do as the locals do and fly in to the Monte Carlo Heliport.

    When to visit Monaco

    For more balls than an average princess has tiaras, visit during the Monaco Grand Prix in May. This is an annual jamboree favored by anyone who’s anyone, where Hollywood’s acting nobility party with European royals.

  • We say

    A 1930s legend offering a modern experience, great views, and welcoming service.

  • You need to know

    The hotel is not in Monte Carlo itself, but on the France-Monaco border.
