Luxury Hotels in Cannes

Cannes, as you may well know, is famous for its annual Cannes Film Festival, a major event that draws artists from around the world and sees the release of a series of independent films. Appropriately enough, the entire city is known as a resort town located on the French Riviera. The Cannes Walk of Fame is located in Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, and one of the big famous tourist attractions is Boulevard de la Croisette, which lies along a lovely beach lined with boutique shops and cafes. Below are the luxury hotels you should consider staying at when you visit this lovely city.

# 1

Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez

The Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez is a five star luxury hotel located in one of the most glamorous areas in all of Cannes — the Croisette. You can look out from your rooms and feast upon the sight of the world’s most famous promenade, a great area from which to look at the lovely boutique stores and all the people carrying tiny dogs and dressed in Cavalli. This grand luxurious hotel was established in 1929 for the purposes of welcoming princes, film stars, and billionaire playboys. The Grand Hyatt places you right in the center of all the fun and games in Cannes, ideally placed to visit the Cannes Film Festival. The hotel also comes with some great amenities, such as daily yoga classes, a pool that is always heated and bubbling, and a spa that’s one square kilometer in area! If you like hanging by some beach clubs you can visit Zplage, featuring about 400 sun loungers so that you can comfortably bask under the sun. There are 409 rooms in all, and they’re all under renovation to make them look more modern, however they still intend to maintain their signature art deco aesthetics. However, you need to be careful about the rooms you select. While the most expensive rooms will offer you a grand expansive sea view, some of the cheaper rooms might leave you with a view of the Marseille-to-Nice railway line. Fun fact, the terrace of the Suite des Oliviers was used by the Absolutely Fabulous crew to host a wild party!

InterContinental Carlton Cannes

The InterContinental Carlton Cannes is considered to be one of the best luxury five star hotels in Cannes, and is placed just a few yards from the beach. It’s located in a prime spot, towering over La Croisette, and is also quite close to the Palais-des-Festivals. The lobby of the hotel is bright and dazzling with stunning glittering chandeliers, and pristine white pillars. Historically, the Carlton has been known for its extravagant and heavy interiors, however over the years, through a series of renovations, they’ve adopted a more minimalist aesthetic, lightening up the space. One thing that bears mentioning is that the Carlton doesn’t feature a pool of its own, however it’s right across from the private beach so you probably don’t need one. As far as clientele is concerned, the Carlton is known to be home to the rich and famous. Aptly enough, the rooms in the hotel are titled ‘1950s Hollywood glamour’, but luckily enough they haven’t imbibed all the more heavy-handed aesthetics of the time, instead opting for a more natural fusion of 50s Hollywood Glamour and Contemporary Chic. The color palette favored by the hotel is beige, cream, and white, and is really quite warm and welcoming. The suites in the seventh floor and above feature stunning sea views. However, if you want a view of the sea, be careful about the room you book because only a few of them offer that.
