During its century of existence, the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat has welcomed within its walls lovers of beauty and high gastronomy as well as lovers of sunny escapades, sea breezes and azure as far as one can see. Many of them were outstanding personalities of their time. Whether they belonged to the world of cinema, politics, the arts or literature, they all found at the Grand-Hôtel the tranquility of a haven of peace. Over more than a century, international tourism has constantly evolved, as have fashions and trends.

More recently, the Grand-Hotel was elected by Condé Nast Traveler 2017 as the Best Seaside Hotel in Europe (excluding Paris), and was voted in 2018 as the best Hotel Resort in France by Travel & Leisure.
Green gardens and idyllic refuge
In 2009 Pierre-Yves Rochon, internationally renowned interior architect, led the revival of all the hotel’s public spaces, rooms and suites as well as the interior design of La Résidence, an extension facing the sea created by architect Luc Svetchine. Integrated into the natural environment, it has been built with sustainable development in mind and comprises eight suites, each with its own private swimming pool and 30 m² of terraces overlooking the sea, as well as 16 luxury rooms with sea and pine forest views, each with its own private terrace.
The Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat has managed to stay ahead of the times, always offering its guests attentive and personalized services in a luxurious setting. The seven hectares of its impeccably tended green and flowery gardens extend from the hotel entrance to the cliffs. They are the work of the famous landscape architect Jean Mus. His design includes terraced gardens with cascading pools and flowers with subtle fragrances and soft pastel colors. They punctuate the winding paths leading to the sea. And the Club Dauphin, which overlooks the cliff on the seafront and is accessible by a private funicular. The 360 m² of its Olympic heated seawater swimming pool echoes the Mediterranean and extends its horizon. Magnificently designed, it blends perfectly into a dazzling maritime setting and becomes an idyllic refuge to enjoy the sun and the magnificent scenery. Private white cotton cabanas overlooking the pool and the waves are arranged on the seafront for those who wish to spend a day in complete tranquility.
