Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat is the grand dame of French Riviera hotels. The hotel reopened in 2009 following a 2 year renovation and expansion project.
The hotel is housed in a grand palace on the very tip of the Cap-Ferrat peninsula. It is set within the grounds of a 7 hectare estate with beautifully landscaped gardens and extensive views of the Mediterranean. It is an excellent base for relaxing in the Mediterranean sun, or for exploring the French Riviera’s famous resorts such as Nice, Cannes, Monaco, and St Tropez, all of which are a short drive from Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.
The hotel has 49 rooms and 24 suites, including the new Penthouse (220sqm), the spacious 510sqm Presidential Suite, and the 550sqm Villa Rose-Pierre which has its own private pool, sea-views and a pine forest. The hotel also boasts ‘The Residence’, a new sea-front wing that features eight new suites, each with a private swimming pool and 30sqm terrace overlooking the sea, as well as sixteen deluxe sea view rooms each with a private terrace.
The Grand-Hôtel hosts three fine dining venues: the Michelin-starred Le Cap Gastronomic Restaurant, which offers a Provencal menu; the new La Veranda restaurant, serving Mediterranean cuisine; and the Club Dauphin Restaurant, which is situated next to the pool and serves a lunch-time menu inspired by rich Mediterranean flavours. The terrace at Le Cap is the perfect place to dine al fresco whilst enjoying views of the sea under the shade of Aleppo pines.
The hotel has a 750sqm ‘Le Spa’ with facilities that include an indoor swimming pool, six treatment rooms, steam rooms and saunas. Club Dauphin, situated on the rocky shoreline and accessible by a private funicular, features a 360sqm, Olympic sized, heated, seawater infinity pool. There is also Les Petits Dauphins children’s pool and a Kids Club. Michelin star chef Didier Aniés offers pastry cooking classes for children and a special childrens’ menu.
