The gentle scent of Spring coasting in from the Mediterranean is reawakening your taste buds and your dreams of escapism. On April 17, the elegant Monte-Carlo Beach is opening for a new season focused on freedom and new experiences. Here, fine dining and relaxation go hand in hand with an eco-friendly approach in full bloom. Let yourself be tempted by…
#1: Delicious flavors:
2020 sees the chef Benoît Witz taking over the reins of the Elsa restaurant, the only Michelin-starred establishment to offer a 100% organic experience, certified by the Ecocert category 3 label. With the arrival of Spring, every last fruit, vegetable and herb inspires the chef Benoît Witz. His new menu is an ode to health and nature, a partition of excellent taste that sings the praises of Mediterranean produce. Le Deck also has a new menu with a sunny and fabulously-fresh “Market of Flavours” buffet every Sunday. Here, the chef Pascal Garrigues leads the team with his vision of fresh and creative cuisine inspired by the best of French summer brasseries. The Vigie Lounge & Restaurant continues to be a haven of conviviality in an idyllic setting with touches of Bali. A voyage of the senses lasting all day long, until sunset, accompanied by lounge music courtesy of the resident DJ.
#2: Wellness at Le Tigre Monte-Carlo:
An invitation to relax and let go which combines open-air therapy and yoga in the heart of Monte-Carlo Beach, inviting you to let go during some open-air therapy and yoga. Make “healthy body, healthy mind” your motto. Each visitor is treated to a bespoke experience, and you can choose from a roster of gentle or dynamic disciplines, including yoga sessions, massages, and treatments and courses focused on emotional and physical wellbeing. Here, you are sure to find balance and harmony!
#3: Sunday brunches:
Le Deck brings a casual chic ambiance to Monte-Carlo Beach’s legendary swimming pool. This is the perfect place to tuck into a gourmet Sunday brunch in the cooling shade of the restaurant’s Pompeian red colonnade. The sweet and savory treats are served hot or cold: the chef’s varied buffet is made exclusively from fresh local organic produce. A few live cooking demos also enhance this casual culinary experience that you will love sharing with friends and family in a truly delightful setting.
#4: Enthralling evenings:
Head to La Vigie Lounge & Restaurant for a captivating evening in a cosy and friendly atmosphere with a laid-back, bohemian feel. For the second year running, this venue has dreamed up a unique experience for you to enjoy from midday to midnight. Berth at the jetty and head for the terrace extending out over the sea, where you can enjoy some signature cocktails and the racy beats of our resident DJ before a night out, or savour a Mediterranean-inspired meal against a backdrop of live music. It's the ideal way to prolong an idyllic day in the sun. Here, time stands still in a never-ending bubble of bliss.
#5: Respect for biodiversity:
Ever since it won Green Globe certification back in 2014, Monte-Carlo Beach has worked tirelessly to support sustainable development. Everything from its culinary offer (the 100% organic, Ecocert-labelled experience at ELSA) to the transport options (electric vehicles for guest use) demonstrates Monte-Carlo Beach's unswerving commitment to this ethical endeavour. Another example in 2020 is the finalization of the installation of an underwater dyke in the form of an artificial riprap to counter the effects of the ocean’s swell, which will protect the magnificent Vigie peninsula and Saint-Roman beach without affecting existing flora and fauna.
Last but not least...
There is no shortage of ways to relax. Solariums, tents, cabanas and bungalows are all available to hire so that you can make the most of your time spent by the sea or beside the Olympic-sized pool. If you are looking to stay fit and active, there are also plenty of watersports options at the Monte-Carlo Beach Club, including parasailing, tubing, MasterCraft® sailing and Flyboard® trips. There's no doubt about it: Everything's possible at Monte-Carlo Beach!
