Monte-Carlo SBM: 150 years




Since 1863, the Société de Bains de Mer et du Cercle des Étrangers has been the undisputed reference in luxury travel of the highest quality that is also inimitable and daring, with a pioneer spirit!


In 1863, the first Casino de Monte-Carlo came into being, marking a turning point in Monaco’s history and the beginning of a legend.

In 1864, the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, the most prestigious luxury hotel in Monaco, opened its doors. “A hotel that surpasses everything that has ever been done until now… marvellous.” said François Blanc, then president of the Société des Bains de Mer.


Monaco invented Monte-Carlo… and the legend continues 150 years later.

In 2013, Monte-Carlo SBM will celebrate its 150-year anniversary all year long in its hotels, casinos, restaurants and shows, with even more style, flavours and events than usual.


A story to be continued and soon to be experienced…
