The rooms at the hotel open onto terraces overlooking the sea, the gardens and its palm trees, over Cannes and the surrounding hillsides. Why not settle into an armchair and peacefully look out at the sweep of the Mediterranean landscape from Le Cannet to Grasse and beyond.

The serene light colours of the elegant designer bedrooms offer a sense of tranquillity. Outside, the clear blue skies of the Côte d’Azur beckon while, inside, the room is bathed in Mediterranean light. Luxury and sun, the two magic ingredients in your stay on the Riviera. The room offers the following amenities: free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV with Pay TV, mini-bar, safe, en-suite bathroom with luxury towelling and slippers and Bulgari bathroom amenities.
