THE IDEAL DESTINATION FOR STAYING IN MONACO
The Principality of Monaco is one of the most fabulous and chic destinations to visit every year. Situated on the French Riviera, between France and Italy; the second smallest country in the world is half the size of New York’s Central Park and host one of the most exclisve and historic hotels of the world, on its “Golden Square” Hôtel Metropole of Monte-Carlo.
Built the same year as the Eiffel Tower on land once owned by the pope, the privately owned Hotel Metropole first welcomed guests in 1886 and quickly became the most glamourous and renowned property in Monte-Carlo. Thenceforth, visitors from around the globe are guests at Metropole during galas, concerts, annual events and highly attended Formula 1 Grand Prix, offering a clear view of the circuit. The Hotel is steps from Monaco’s most luxurious destinations including the Casino, designer boutiques and the city’s beautiful gardens. As a plus you can also conveniently access both the Mediterranean Sea and snowy mountains.
American novelist Edith Warton was inspired by Hotel Metropole when she wrote ““The House of Mirth.” Published in 1905 and partially set in Monte-Carlo, Edith describes the Garden of Eden, in the same likeness as the patrician palace- style landscaped gardens still found today at Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo. Since its opening in 1889, Hotel Metropole has attracted an international and elite clientele, and memorable stays and experiences.
The 126 rooms and suites, all of which demonstrate the art of comfort and refinement, blends warmth and luxury with chic and cozy tones. Decorated in Mediterranean style, each room appears to have stepped out of a scene on nobility. For instance, interior furniture is shaped in scroll formation with refined fabrics and a palette of glowing and shimmering hues, finished with a honey- colored wood varnish.
The master of reinvention, KARL LAGERFELD has repeatedly transformed himself and his labels. In 2012, Lagerfeld was brought on to design the Hôtel Metropole Monte-Carlo pool-area, creating an “haute couture” setting now known as Odyssey. The pool concept features a unique fresco-styled glass installation around the heated sea-water pool portraying Ulysses’ journey as well as beautifully- curated gardens, private cabanas and a pool house with Joël Robuchon’s third restaurant in the hotel. Definitely, If you are looking for a special destination for your honeymoon, anniversary or just want to surprise your special one, Monaco should be on your top 5 and Metropole the place to stay.
Go wild saying, “I do” while fully submerged in the Mediterranean Sea off the Principality or taste the Mediterranean art of living on wonderful excursions amidst spell-binding scenery where the heart beats a little faster.

On wednesdays we recommend Odyssey, this rooftop, poolside restaurant has been given a fresh renovation by Karl Lagerfeld. And if all that isn’t enough, there’s the lobby bar where you can grab a snack, a cocktail or just a cup of tea.
