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. This is where the Prince Rainier III Diamond Suite’s story begins.
The Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo hosted Prince Rainier III & Princess Grace of Monaco’s wedding reception, their 20th wedding anniversary celebration, the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Prince Rainier III’s reign, birthdays, and more. As such, the iconic hotel has always stood out as a venue for celebrating significant life events. And this remains true today. Because of the strong and intimate bond between the Princely family and the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, the establishment owed it to them to design a suite in tribute to the “Builder Prince”. The result is the Prince Rainier III Diamond Suite.
And because its name is far more than just a nod to the Prince, staying there means becoming part of the legend. The more personal side of the Prince and his family’s legend that few are privy to. It features Prince Rainier III’s personal belongings, paintings, a globe ceiling light, photos, and sculptures, along with lights created from original drawings and sculptures made by the sovereign himself. Everything here is designed for living in the moment. This exceptional place has something incredible to offer.
Its stunning interior (830 m2) and two-level terrace make the “rooftop villa", as we like to call it, one of the most beautiful suites in the world. With its unrivaled views of the Casino de Monte-Carlo’s towers and the Place du Casino set against a backdrop of the sparkling sea and the Italian coastline, the Suite offers an exceptional panorama that encompasses three countries: France, Monaco, and Italy. Enjoy the Mediterranean coast at its finest!
And the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo is a truly exceptional jewel in the crown, with majestic bedrooms, living rooms that are in turn cozy and remarkable, marble bathrooms, shower-hammam, glass sauna with the blue of the Mediterranean sky as your only witness, counter-current infinity pool, and more. Here, everything is quite simply magical. And this is true down to the very last detail, including the straw marquetry, leather headboards, and textured paintings. Each decorative feature was designed in collaboration with the best French and Italian artisans for guests’ sensory pleasure.
The first thing that moves you when you enter is the seemingly endless main corridor, followed by the unparalleled natural light. Starting in the large living room and in every room thereon, be soothed by the magic of the moment. And an even bigger surprise awaits… The large doors opening onto the terrace and infinity pool. What a view!
Host your friends at the bar in a perfectly designed living room. After an exclusive tour with a master sommelier of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo wine cellars, the world’s largest hotel wine cellars, enjoy an intimate private dinner created by Alain Ducasse on the terrace or in the dining room. Pure indulgence for the senses. Spend hours in the marble bathroom getting ready to go out. But where? A unique concert at the Opéra Garnier? To experience the buzz of the legendary Casino de Monte-Carlo? Whatever you’re in the mood for!
Here, in the beating heart of Monaco, magic and privilege are all there is. Enjoy a Suite designed to be experienced to the full.
