Celebrating Christmas and New Year's Eve in Monaco is guaranteed to fill you with wonder. Adorned in its finest illuminations, the Principality shines like a diamond in its waterside setting. In our four- and five-star hotels, booking a Diamond Suite for the festive season is sure to make this experience simply fabulous.
The exquisite sensation of entering a luxurious cocoon, the unique emotions stirred up by being in a prestigious place, a stay in a Diamond Suite is always exceptional. These 23 suites of the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, the finest collection of suites on the Riviera, offer an unforgettable journey as only Monaco knows how to deliver.
A loft on the roof of a palace, a suite with the Mediterranean as far as the eye can see, a villa on the Moneco heights... each has a unique soul, a story to discover. Their décor, thought out down to the smallest detail, features the finest materials and the work of the best craftsmen. Crafted in a “haute couture” spirit, both modern and refined, they reflect the art of living in Monaco.
In addition to the luxury of the rooms, we offer a five-star service that expertly meets your every wish. Staying in a Diamond Suite is also the key to experiencing the best of the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer Resort through exclusive and personalised benefits: being a guest at the private table of a Michelin-starred chef, visiting the legendary cellars of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo or enjoying a romantic dinner facing the Prince's Palace at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo... Precious moments with a unique flavour.
Such a setting is undoubtedly the most magical place for exceptional end-of-year celebrations in Monaco. What greater pleasure than to come together as a couple, with family or friends in the spacious environs of the Diamond Suites and their magnificent décor. During the festive season, the grounds are adorned with an extra touch of magic: here a Christmas tree decorated in its most beautiful finery, there a few sparkling decorations – the spirit of Christmas is present, always with style and refinement.
What better gift could there be than to bring the whole family together in the Diamond Suite Princière, at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, with its three rooms that can accommodate up to nine people, or to bring in the New Year with that special someone in the private jacuzzi of the Diamond Suite Princesse Grace at the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo?
For young and old alike, booking a Diamond Suite is the guarantee of a starry-eyed festive season. In the suites of the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, the VIK (Very Important Kids) programme offers your children a personalised welcome with delicious treats and gifts under the tree. Not forgetting the family Christmas afternoon tea in the Belle Epoque room. At the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, after enjoying the superb view from the terrace of the Diamond Suite Eleven, parents and children love to spend a relaxing afternoon in the Resort's indoor heated swimming pool. At the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, the charm begins in the lobby, which is decorated with a majestic Christmas tree adorned with Chopard jewels. With a view of the Place du Casino or the Mediterranean, your Diamond Suite guarantees that you don't miss a thing of the fairytale show being played out before your eyes.
Walking around Monaco during the festive season is like living in a daydream. The jewel of the Côte d'Azur shines a little brighter at this time of year. The Principality is turned into a winter wonderland, from the Place du Casino with its ice trail on which you can skate between snow-covered fir trees and illuminations. Transformed into a chalet, the terrace of the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo becomes a cosy refuge to enjoy a hot chocolate or a waffle. On the Patio des Joailliers, decked out in festive finery, enchanting moments await you and your family with the Christmas Garden's gourmet and creative workshops for children.
Monaco, one of the safest destinations in the world, is also a luxury shopping paradise – an opportunity to find the most beautiful gifts to give, or to treat yourself. Visit the Christmas Promenade, around One Monte-Carlo, with its famous designer boutiques. In Square Beaumarchais, the Pop-Up de Noël is ideal for a champagne break between boutiques. On the Avenue de Monte-Carlo, don't miss a visit to the Chalet des Chefs to book a festive Michelin-starred meal.
Finally, if you book a suite with a view of the port of Monaco, such as the Diamond Suite Présidentielle at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the big wheel and the hustle and bustle of the Christmas village. This not-to-be-missed Christmas market is traditionally held from December to January at Port Hercule.
