Now that the sun is finally shining, it’s time for the glitterati to descend on the Cote d’Azur. After a dazzling few weeks in Cannes for the film festival and an exceptionally thrilling Grand Prix in Monaco, the summer looks bright in the South of France.
While there is no shortage of luxurious things to do and see in Monaco this summer, we’ve rounded out a list of the crème de la crème of what to do, see, where to stay and play.
Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo’s Maserati Suite
Perhaps Monaco’s most prestigious venue since 1864, Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo is pleased to offer automotive-loving guests a collaboration for the ages. Partnered with Maserati, the hotel has created a pop-up suite in room 321. Bringing together the luxury automotive brand’s design aesthetic and Hotel de Paris’ legendary hospitality, guests will be fully immersed in the sensibility of Maserati.
From the moment a Maserati picks the guest up from Nice Airport—a luxury availed for the duration of their stay—guests will find themselves in the world of Maserati including spending a night in the suite’s original décor and enjoy cocktails accompanied by Michelin-starred Italian cuisine all in the comfort of the suite. Guests staying three nights or more will also benefit from a complementary cryotherapy session at the famed Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo spa.
