It’s one of the most prestigious addresses in Monaco. A luxury hotel from another era, a sumptuous retreat away from the hustle and bustle in the heart of the Principality... Located in the Carré d’Or overlooking the Mediterranean, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo has a unique atmosphere steeped in history and soul.
The palace was built in 1889 in the purest Belle Epoque style. It was fully renovated in 2004 under the direction of French designer Jacques Garcia, who knew how to preserve its Mediterranean charm while giving it a new lease on life that combines sophistication and delights for the senses.
From the 126 rooms and suites to the restaurants and pool, everything at Hotel Metropole is dedicated to the pleasures in life.
The three restaurants represent three unique gastronomic experiences.
Boasting two Michelin stars, the Metropole Monte-Carlo Restaurant offers a refined menu with Mediterranean favours, while Yoshi, the world’s only Japanese restaurant on the French Riviera boasting a Michelin star, serves up brilliant reinventions of traditional Japanese cuisine. As for Odyssey, the lounge-restaurant imagined and designed by Karl Lagerfeld, it unveils a light and modern cuisine, from the terrace, the restaurant to the gardens and pool house. This is a space where lines and curves meld into one another, where the elements converge around the heated salt water pool in a grand splash of light conceived by Karl Lagerfeld.
It’s fair to say that thanks to a genuine quest for perfection, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo offers its guests the very best in design, gastronomy and wellbeing. This is why Givenchy came to unveil a spa speci cally designed for this exceptional hotel.
SPA METROPOLE BY GIVENCHY, THE LUXURY OF TAKING TIME FOR YOURSELF
Clean lines and noble materials... Designed by architect Didier Gomez, Spa Metropole by Givenchy reflects the House's sophistication and modernity down to every last detail.
The entrance sets the tone with its marble finish and proportions accentuated by sleek, bold black lines. Contemporary materials can be found alongside a digital plant wall throughout the interior, for absolute serenity. The corridor leading to the treatment rooms offers an immersive experience in which an unexpected encounter with nature is heightened by a subtle play of light, creating a vibrant and intimate atmosphere.
All ten treatment rooms are decorated in nuanced shades of white, with embossed walls that evoke the lace of Haute Couture gowns. These include a double suite and a single suite equipped with a bath and private hammam.
For a touch of luxury, guests may choose a fragrance to accompany them throughout their experience. This is sprayed on a tissue in the pocket of their bathrobe or on the massage table. All treatments and massages end with a refreshing ritual using cryotherapy technology, for a gentle way to prolong this moment of serenity.
The spa offers a “Heat Experience” package, which includes the sauna, hammam, caldarium, ice fountain and sensory showers. It also boasts a gym with all the latest equipments (Technogym, Kinesis Personal and Kinesis Stations) as well as a Pedi:Mani:Cure studio by Bastien Gonzalez. The background music was created by Béatrice Ardisson to accompany and personalise the experience in the treatment rooms, where guests can choose a playlist based on their own musical preferences.
Last but not least, a dedicated Givenchy beauty boutique brings together all the brand’s products, from makeup and skincare to fragrances. The exclusive L’Atelier de Givenchy fragrance collection makes its debut here in Monaco. The collection includes 11 precious fragrances, each with a unique identity, for an olfactory wardrobe that allows both men and women to assert their style.
