The glitz and the glam in Cannes never stops. From world-renowned filmmakers and celebrities strolling on the red carpet during the city’s iconic film festival to the best in the world of yachting during the Yachting Festival, you can find luxury wherever you look – 365 days a year. The slew of chic boutiques and high fashion houses are as native to this Côte d’Azur gem as the ultra-glamorous hotels in Cannes that we’ll cover here.
InterContinental Carlton Cannes
As legendary as Cannes itself, so is the InterContinental Carlton Cannes hotel. Exceptional hospitality and the ultimate luxury has been at the very heart of this establishment for over a century. Located in the glamorous Boulevard de la Croisette, it exudes elegance and opulence. Staying at the InterContinental Carlton Cannes, you immerse yourself in historic elegance and contemporary comfort. Each of the 343 hotel rooms and suites is highly luxurious. Attention to detail is pristine everywhere you look – from the standard rooms to personalized prestige suites. Rich cream tones and expensive fabrics line the interiors, and you feel like nothing short of a royal immersing yourself in this comfort. The prestige suites bear the names of movie stars who all have walked the red carpets in Cannes – Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Sean Connery, Alain Delon, and others.
JW Marriott Cannes
The JW Marriott Cannes has a certain charm about it that comes from its significant history; the first Cannes Film Festival took place in the very building the hotel is. Its prime location leaves you wishing for nothing more. Located on the La Croisette, everything is within walking distance. The seaside views, however, are so perfect you probably will not want to leave. At the JW Marriott Cannes, you can enjoy a remarkably comfortable stay as all the rooms and suites are light-filled and airy, well-designed, and featuring large bathrooms. The views face either the city, the garden, partial and seafront views. The prestige suites also feature a balcony with an unmatched view of the sea. Smart and elegant interiors are perfect both for business and leisure travel.
Five Seas Hotel
On a different spectrum than the chain hotels but equally as glamorous is the boutique Five Seas Hotel. Just around the corner from La Croisette, this 45-room exquisite accommodation offers everything you might want for the ultimate relaxing experience. Tucked away from curious eyes, this hotel has been described as the best-kept secret in Cannes.
The small (in comparison) hotel packs a punch with the Cinq Mondes & Carita Spa equipped with a hammam, two saunas, and four treatment rooms. Put on a cocktail dress and head to the lively rooftop bar on wear a bikini and lounge on the pool terrace. The interiors are in muted tones with a few bright accents – it’s all about elegance in Cannes. If you opt for one of the suites, you will be pleased to find a terrace with uniquely-designed hot tubs.
Hotel Barriere Le Majestic Cannes
If you’re after a star-studded stay in Cannes that is both elegant and fun after the sun goes down, Hotel Barriere Le Majestic Cannes is where you will want to find yourself. Visit the renowned spa before heading for a party on the private beach, but not before you’ve enjoyed a cocktail in the bar where star sightings are not rare.
As with the majority of luxury hotels in Cannes, Hotel Barriere Le Majestic Cannes is also located on the Croisette. And just like everything in Cannes, movies play a big role. More than two thousand black and white portraits of film stars are on the walls of the lobby and corridors. The royal-worthy rooms and suites feature luxurious fabrics and a beautiful color scheme of beige with dark contrasts. The large rooms are washed with daylight and seafront views – exactly what you want when staying in Cannes.
Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez
Another Croisette gem, Hotel Martinez has a certain Art Deco glamour carried over directly from the roaring twenties. If there is one place to be seen wearing the latest high fashion piece, it’s definitely here and you will fit right in. A spa that covers one square kilometer and a heated pool welcome you all year long. Between April and September, you can also head out to the beach and find yourself in the largest and most luxurious beach club in Cannes. Just like the rest of the hotel, the rooms and suites feature Art Deco elements. While all the rooms are spacious and elegant, not all face the seafront, but for a top dollar, you can not only get that but also a private terrace.
