Monte-Carlo On the Air: why not enjoy a change of scenery this summer! And what better scenery could there be for soaking up some sunshine, unwinding and clearing your mind than a gorgeous spa, some incredible pools, or a session on the beach? We’ve put together a small selection just for you of the best spots right here in Monaco.
At the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, the indoor/outdoor pool is the perfect place to enjoy the delights of a dip all year round, with a constant water temperature of 28 °C. Swim under the cupola or wind through the tropical garden, enjoy the jacuzzis, or make your way to the sandy lagoon…treat yourself to a couple of cocktails or a freshly-squeezed juice, kick back and relax. It’s simple: just make the most of the life you’re living.
The most iconic spot in Monaco has got to be the Olympic pool at the Monte-Carlo Beach Club, with its unique colour, two diving boards, and 27 °C heated and ozone-treated salt water. From May to October, time seems to stand still and perpetual summer reigns all around the legendary space. Chill out, swim, take an Aquagym or Aquazen class…and just relax!
Still at Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo, there’s no better feeling than choosing to lounge awhile by the immense heated salt water pool, with its sweeping views of the Mediterranean! However you like to relax, you’ll find it here: there’s also the solarium or jacuzzi overlooking the harbour and old town, sauna and hammam in the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo Wellness Space. If you prefer to unwind with a little activity then there are plenty of options to choose from at this wellbeing mecca: from Aqua Cardio Boxing and Aqua Postural to fitness, stretching, pool Pilates and more, you’ll find all sorts of ways to rest, reset, and re-energise both body and soul.
To round off our brief overview of Monaco’s pools, we're heading to the top floor of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo. The Wellness Sky Club awaits, with premium facilities including a counter-current swimming pool, walk-in pool, solarium, sun loungers & deckchairs, relaxation room, gym area and panoramic views. Get ready for an experience that is all about your relaxation and wellbeing, with cocktails, detox juices and a chic menu of light bites also available from the lounge bar.
Lay back, enjoy the sun on your skin, clear your mind…and feel good. That is just what you can expect with a visit to Sea Bay at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort. With access to the Larvotto Nature Reserve, you’ll get to swim through unspoilt surroundings before arriving at ten beach beds bearing the gorgeous names of Mediterranean islands. While you’re there, sample the menu crafted by double-Michelin-starred chef Marcel Ravin – it just doesn’t get better than this.
Another incredible spot for sitting back and enjoying a change of scenery is the private beach at the Monte-Carlo Beach, with its chic striped canvas beach huts, cabanas, sun loungers and deck chairs, fresh, organic menu and wood-fired pizzas that are perfect for sharing with family or friends. The beach itself has even had a makeover to celebrate the arrival of summer, with a new blend of sand, pebbles and teakwood that feels delightful under your toes. Here, daydreaming is an artform – and practicing is encouraged every hour of every day. Taking a dip in the sea is pure delight. And, if exercise is your preferred way to let it all go, there are plenty of water sports to try: from jet skiing and parasailing to towed tubing, water skiing, sea scooters and air chairs.
A relaxing destination par excellence, Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer is home to three of the finest spas in Europe. The spa at the Monte-Carlo Beach is a haven of peace and wellbeing, offering guests at the incredible 1930s hotel the chance to enjoy profound relaxation amidst stunning natural surroundings.
