The Fairmont Monte Carlo resort
For an unrivalled blend of luxury and sophistication, The Fairmont Monte Carlo resort is a wonderful choice for a holiday or short-break.
The principality of Monaco is famous for attracting the rich and famous as well as royalty, and guests can enjoy a taste of glamour by staying at this sumptuous resort.
The hotel overlooks the glittering Mediterranean ocean and it is one of the largest resorts in Europe, with 602 guest rooms and suites, two restaurants, a bar, 18 meeting rooms and a shopping arcade. This host of impressive facilities means that guests have access to everything they could possibly need and more during their stay.
In the evening, guests can enjoy a trip to the Casino for a touch of James Bond style glamour, before retiring to dine at the recently opened Nobu restaurant, which was launched with a traditional Japanese Sake ceremony for 200 guests including Princess Charlène of Monaco and Robert De Niro.
The resort has a luxury Willow Stream Spa, and the roof top pool affords guests breath-taking views of the Riviera. There is a choice of luxurious accommodation options on offer, including the spacious and elegantly decorated Grand Prix Suites, which feature a separate bedroom and a luxuriously furnished living room equipped with everything guests could possibly need. These suites have private terraces, offering views of either the Grand Prix Hairpin or the sweeping expanse of the Mediterranean ocean.
Now owned by Ian Livingstone, the resort is situated in a prime location, meaning that guests are fully immersed in the awe-inspiring Monaco scenery throughout their stay. There were extensive renovations in both 2005 and 2009, which ensured that the resort has maintained its modernity and unsurpassable standards of luxury.
Of course, Monaco is famed for its annual Grand Prix racing event on Circuit de Monaco, during which the competitors make use of the tunnel under the hotel, considered to be one of the most dangerous parts of the circuit. The adrenaline of the Grand Prix is not for everybody however, and there is plenty of relaxation on offer at the hotel too. Monaco enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine per year, so guests can certainly look forward to soaking up the sunshine whilst sipping a cocktail or two on the terrace.
This elite resort is somewhere to stay for an unforgettable taste of jet-setting glamour and luxury. It has a peerless reputation and it is easy to see why so many of the rich and famous continue to return to this resort year after year.
