In the heart of a haven of greenery stretching over seven hectares, this dazzling white building rises up, a glorious luxury hotel on the Côte d’Azur balanced on the tip of the Cap-Ferrat peninsula, surrounded by luscious gardens overlooking the Mediterranean.
The architecture and interior design here were crafted by top industry names, and have evolved over time. The original La Rotonde was designed and built by Gustave Eiffel in 1909. In 2009, world-renowned interior architect Pierre-Yves Rochon oversaw a complete makeover of all the spaces, rooms and suites as well as the interior design of La Résidence, an extension gazing out over the sea and created by architect Luc Svetchine.
The hotel bears the traces of the glittering guest list that has graced its premises, from international celebrities and artists to the politicians who have stayed here over the 100-year history of this historic landmark on the French Riviera.
Chef Yoric Tièche puts his contemporary, talented stamp on the hotel’s three restaurants, from the gourmet Le Cap to the stylish Club Dauphin, an idyllic eatery for the entire family giving out on to the hotel’s iconic swimming-pool, managed by Pierre Gruneberg, coach to some of the world’s top-class swimmers! He’s been giving hotel guests and stars swimming lessons for over 60 years now.
Finally, the elegant spa stretches over 750 m2 and features exclusive products from Dr Burgener, Biologique Recherche and Sodashi. This tranquil oasis overlooks the sea and a 1,200 m2 garden, and is another highlight at this multi-award-winning luxury hotel.
