Some experiences are unique, rare, and valuable, an expression of pure luxury. Staying in one of the 23 Diamond Suites at the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer Resort is one such experience. Each suite promises a unique and unforgettable journey to the heart of Europe’s most sought-after destination. Each has its own soul and story. The story of the Suite Princely at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo starts like this…
About ten years ago, the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo decided to extend its Prince wing upwards. Architect Pierre-Yves Rochon was commissioned to design the most beautiful rooms in the hotel’s collection, including the Diamond Suite - Princely. It is the hotel’s largest suite and, as such, was given a special name that celebrates its grandeur and prestige, and points to the stunning views of the Prince’s Palace and the Mediterranean Sea that can be enjoyed as soon as you step into this delightful sanctuary. It is a name that highlights access to a whole new world, an expression of pure luxury and ultimate comfort.
Due to its extraordinary size (up to 286 m², including three terraces), the Suite - Princely is full of surprises. With a stunning entrance hall, vast windows in the lounge overlooking the Prince’s Palace and the endless open sea, and bedrooms with subtle decor that blends contemporary and Belle Époque styles, the suite on the 7th floor reflects the gentle curves that characterize the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo. Up to three bedrooms that can accommodate nine people, and all the rooms offer stunning sea views. From the bathrooms, study, and dressing rooms to the precious fabrics, cane-backed Louis XVI-style “bergère” armchairs, lacquered furniture, and leather sofas, everything has been designed to ensure guests feel right at home. The same applies to the hotel services that will naturally be included by an establishment that has made the well-being of its guests its signature. From transfers and travel by limousine to the housekeeper who welcomes you to your suite and unpacks and packs your bags, nothing is left to chance. Providing the experience you’ve been waiting for is our first priority. To do so, we have two keywords: kindness and discretion. The Suite -Princely has a small bonus that makes a big difference: it can be extended by privatizing the entire floor, combining four suites for an extraordinary experience.
As soon as you walk through the door of the Suite - Princely, it starts to weave its magic, carefully imbuing its immense rooms with an intimate atmosphere. Never has the phrase “feel at home” been so apt. Settling in and exploring this huge apartment is such a pleasure! And taking a bath in one of the large bathrooms is also a wonderful experience, relaxing in the subtle, sun-drenched atmosphere that extends into the dressing room and boudoir devoted to hair and make-up. Enjoying the beautiful, unparalleled light, indulging in a sublime meal prepared by Yannick Alléno with your significant other, family, or friends in the large lounge, enjoying breakfast on the terrace… And what a view! Admire the panorama of the Mediterranean and the Prince’s Palace stretching out before your eyes. Time seems to stand still in this masterful suite, its refinement and delicate nature echoing the timeless elegance and personal touches for which the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo is renowned.
