The unexpected breeds the exceptional. The Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort has elevated this idea to an art, offering its guests something new, unparalleled, and exclusive. Because this year, more than ever, “Carpe Diem” is the only motto to live by! It is time to celebrate the senses, life’s pleasures, and new-found freedom. Reflect and get away from it all in an atmosphere somewhere between Monaco chic and Mediterranean casual.
A morning by the water
The doors of the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort open into another world, with unique gardens extending all the way to the peninsula. This verdant setting is home to a sandy-bottomed lagoon, on the shores of which you can start your day in Cocoon Bay, in a Balinese-style bed, relaxing between the hanging drapes of your canopy bed and drinking the moment in like a smoothie before diving into the waters of the lagoon.
Or you can choose a delicious new option: the Floating Breakfast, an utterly unique way to eat the day’s first meal—served on a tray floating in the lagoon. With your feet in the water, sip a fresh-squeezed juice or a glass of champagne and savour pastries or other delicacies that tickle your fancy! It’s a little taste of paradise, to which you can decide to add a foot massage or yoga session.
If you prefer to start your day gazing toward the horizon, head to our Sea Bay area. It features ten sun beds, all named for Mediterranean isles. Bask on the shore of the great blue yonder, in the protected natural Larvotto Reserve.
A lunch that transports you
Marcel Ravin has developed a menu full of sunshine for the summer restaurant Las Brisas. When the sun reaches its zenith, fresh tastes are just the ticket for mouth and mind. Get out of the water to immerse yourself in the fantastic design of the restaurant and Ravin’s jetlag cuisine. He opens doors between different worlds, bringing all the flavours of seaside life together on the plate. The ambiance is all fusion and grilling in a stylish yet relaxed establishment. But today is Sunday, which means that, just like every Sunday, it’s brunch at Las Brisas— a ritual both gourmet and musical, because here brunch is enjoyed to the sound of live music.
A languid afternoon in the heat
After lunch, schools of thought diverge. Nap aficionados head back to Sea Bay or Cocoon Bay, while well-being connoisseurs find their holy grail at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort’s Spa Cinq Mondes. At the spa, you are invited to embark on a sensory journey dedicated to care, well-being, and beauty. Traditional massages proffered according to ancestral rituals celebrate another of the five senses in 900 square meters of perfect peace.
When the evening sun turns the sand to gold, you can almost hold the promise of a magical night in your hand. The Dinner under the Stars keeps that promise. New for this exceptional summer, Dinner under the Stars is a stunningly romantic tête-à-tête where a set menu by Michelin-starred chef Marcel Ravin is served to you at the intimate Sea Bay, next to the water and under a starry sky. This unforgettable culinary adventure is all about pleasing the senses, so you can select the option of musical accompaniment, too—an acoustic trio or a guitar soloist, according to your desires. Experience this same romantic atmosphere during a dinner at Michelin-starred restaurant Blue Bay. The terrace offers an unbeatable view of the sea or the lagoon, guaranteeing a divine moment for sight and taste alike.
Sundays are for brunch!
On Sundays, you can always sample brunch by the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort’s executive chef Marcel Ravin, so find a seat! From appetizers to desserts, from colourful salads to fish, grilled meats, and of course the renowned roast chicken, everything will be served buffet-style. With a live band, a shady terrace, and exquisite eats, the Brunch Table at the Las Brisas restaurant is a way to reinvent your Sunday and take some magical time out.
Chilling all day
Sometimes summer is for nothing but endless relaxation. If you don’t want to heave yourself from your deckchair to the lagoon and back again, choose the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort special subscription Eat & Swim—focusing on the true essentials in life! Alongside the lagoon with a white-sand bottom, surrounded by patios, waterfalls, and islands of greenery created by famous landscape artist Jean Mus, enjoy the beachy bar, and, on some days, a few magic tricks. When you’re hungry, a delicious house-made pizza will be waiting for you there. And at the weekend, let loose as Blue Gin’s resident DJ, Nicolas Saad, mixes.
You’ll see it’s true: a summer’s day at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort is the promise of a time like no other, where the senses, freedom, joie de vivre, and the pleasure of taking it slow are what count.
