thoene one towatch to watch A Unique and Glamorous City Resort in the Heart of the Principality Glamour, elegance, intimacy: three words which describe perfectly the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, Monaco’s 21st century luxury hotel. Opened in July 2004, the privately-owned property was decorated by the famous French interior designer Jacques Garcia, who created a classic and timeless Mediterranean palace. Whilst the exterior of the property and its overall ambience remain classic in style, Garcia has added a modern twist, ensuring that Hotel Metropole is now set apart from the other Casino Square properties. Located just a few steps from Monte-Carlo’s legendary Casino, the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo has since become the hottest hotel address in town. The opulent atrium, with its unique glass dome, sets the scene for the stylish and lavish atmosphere. Each of the 141 bedrooms is finished to the highest specification and is rich in textures. Cool colours come together with the finest natural materials including solid wood and smooth slate to offer stunning bathrooms. The one-bedroom ‘Suite Carré d’Or’, the hotel’s Penthouse Suite, boasts a 110sq.metre terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Casino Square and the outdoor heated sea-water swimming pool, making it the perfect venue for small private cocktail or dinner parties. The 2-Michelin starred Joël Robuchon Monte-Carlo Restaurant, which offers gastronomic cuisine blending contemporary flavours and Mediterranean styles, has contributed to the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo establishing itself as one of the top destination hotels in the world. The Metropole ESPA Monte-Carlo, which joined the close-knit circle of ‘Leading Spas of the World’ a few months after its opening in 2006, is an exclusive urban spa entirely dedicated to well-being. In December 2008, Joël Robuchon opened his first ever Japanese restaurant, YOSHI, within the hotel. The 35-seat restaurant was designed by Didier Gomez who created a warm and slick décor, gracefully combining the Japanese influences and the elegance of the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo. Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo has completed a vast architectural project including the renovation of its outside premises, of which its pool, terrace, gardens and Joël Robuchon’s third signature restaurant ODYSSEY. A unique duo, Karl Lagerfeld and Joël Robuchon, both symbols of excellence in the world of fashion and gastronomy, have joined forces for this venture which was unveiled early winter 2012. Through this new collaboration, the hotel’s identity and its heritage will be further strengthened. Once again, the hotel stands out as a different palace hotel, offering guests unique experiences. The Métropole ESPA Monte- Carlo, designed by Jacques Garcia, has introduced, in addition to the existing selection, a variety of treatments from a new Grecian inspired menu aimed at both men and women and designed to relax and rejuvenate. Using luxurious ingredients, the range present the perfect combination of personalisation, relaxation and long-lasting results.
