With its brilliantly white Art Deco-style façade anno 1923, storied Majestic Barrière Cannes epitomizes French Riviera luxury lifestyle along tony Boulevard La Croisette. Located across from the red-carpeted Palais de Festivals, where Hollywood A-listers strut their stuff during the famous film festival, the hotel Grand Dame wows guests with an expansive lobby dominated by dramatic champagne-colored columns, twinkling chandeliers and polished antiques-furnished seating areas. 265 brightly elegant rooms occupy a total of 7 floors and sleek dark-hued furniture is smartly balanced with crimson splashes and eye-catching floral images in gilt frames. Rooms provide must-have gadgetry like Bose iPod docks, wireless Internet access, plus flat-screen televisions, and, for the no-delay pick-me-up in the AM, Nespresso machines are on hand. Black marble-clad bathrooms show off equally dapper design and are kitted out with separate bathtubs and showers as well as bespoke toiletries.
The hotel offers guests a mosaicked heated outdoor pool for high fashion sunbathing, or, a private beach and jetty a few steps across the boulevard. No need to vacate the coveted beach chair to break for lunch: simply order from Majestic Barrière’s chic on-site eatery La Plage. After a day hitting boutiques by crème de la crème French-label haute couture tenants like Blanc Bleu, Petit Bateau, and Comptoir des Cotonniers on exclusive Rue D’Antibes, decompress at the hotel’s refined Spa My Blend by Clarins that is outfitted with color-therapy showers, Hammam, sauna and restorative rooms. Or try something new at the cutting edge fitness center such as LIA (Low Impact Aerobics) and TRX Suspension Training. Feed the body at the posh on-site outpost of iconic Parisian restaurant Fouquet’s Cannes: The glam hot spot with a see-and-be seen outdoor dining terrace serves sumptuous renditions of French classics like mullet pissaladière (Provençal pizza) and Charolais rump steak tartar. The Majestic Barriere no doubt knows how to put on the Ritz and lavishes guests with its upscale amenities in an unforgettably debonair locale.
