I am gushing with exuberance as I write this feature, it's one of those secrets you just cannot keep to yourself! Eager to tell you of my experience in Monaco, the playground for the rich and famous, renowned for its princesses and excesses, with Monte-Carlo, the centrepiece of the Riviera Principality. I had just finished my five night stay in Paris, and took the TVG train through the beautiful French countryside stopping in Nice, then switching to a regional train headed straight for Monaco. Within the Principality, just a few steps from Monte-Carlo’s legendary Casino, lies one of the world's best hospitality venues, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo. I had the pleasure of staying in this former palace for two lavishly luxuriant nights, and I must confess...
it is among the best times of my life! The privately owned Hotel Metropole built in the Belle Epoque style on land formerly held by Pope Leon XIII, first welcomed guests in 1886 and quickly became synonymous with the ultimate glamour of Monte-Carlo. Among its many well-known clients, the five-star hotel has hosted Claudia Schiffer, Jennifer Lopez, Sting and Leonardo DiCaprio, who epitomise the hotel’s sophistication and prevailing chic.
Words can only go so far, a description of Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo fits this conundrum. I can tell you how amazing the architecture is, how luxurious the interior design appears, how fragrant the hotels private gardens smell, or how decadently flavorful the food may be...but the only way to understand is to go! Go now and experience through your five senses! The air is a bit richer in Monaco, the buildings shine just a bit brighter, the yachts stretch further, and the luxury goes beyond compare, it is a wonderful experience. What I take from this hotel, service is everything, it makes your experience come to life so beautifully; the staff is of the best in the world, they are true masters in the luxury of service. I look forward to many revisits throughout my lifetime!
