The Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo and Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo spa form the perfect pair: two establishments with the same roots, established by the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, Monaco’s historic luxury tourism body. The hotel and spa lie next to one another and are directly linked, with both aimed at offering their respective guests memories to last a lifetime.
The Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo has always been a place of high emotion, inspiring guests with its refined, poetic rooms and suites and treating them to incredible, mouth-watering dishes at the Vistamar restaurant, where Michelin-starred chef Benoît Witz serves up fresh produce and natural flavours. This luxury hotel’s décor bears testimony to its centuries-old past. The winter garden is topped by a glass roof with metalwork crafted by Gustave Eiffel’s teams. Once used as the hotel’s restaurant, the Belle Époque room is a listed historic monument that dazzles with its pink marble columns, shimmering gilded detailing and ceiling painted in the Fragonard style by Gabriel Ferrier, who won the first ever Prix de Rome in 1872.
Over at the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo spa, exceptional facilities combine with excellent service. Renovated in 2014, this haven of tranquillity in the heart of the Principality of Monaco is a place that exists outside of space and time, where cutting-edge technology and the comfort and peace of the luxury sector meet. The spa boasts all the very latest facilities from Human Tecar, Miha Body Tec and LPG. Its pride and joy is the cryotherapy room. Long reserved for professional athletes, this cutting-edge technology is now available to the wider public, and revolves around exposing the body to very low temperatures (– 60°C and – 110°C) to soothe muscle ache and inflammation, as well as sleep disorders, stress or skin ageing.
And because technology is best dispensed by experienced hands, the establishment’s staff bring all their expertise to the table. A doctor, nutritionist, sports coaches, spa therapists and beauticians all pull together to offer traditional Thai massages, salt scrubs, mud wraps and seaweed baths for an incredible well-being experience.
