On October 16th, 2017 at the Château de Ferrières, the 15th edition of the Villégiature Awards ceremony took place where the most outstanding hotels in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East were awarded.

The Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer Group was awarded the highest distinction with the “Best hotel group in Europe”. This prize rewards the passion of a Group that has excelled for more than 150 years in the sector of luxury hotels, gastronomy, entertainment, well-being and which constantly strives to enhance and further develop its heritage. This is evidenced by the ongoing metamorphosis of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo.

Special mention for the swimming pool of Monte-Carlo Beach, voted “Best swimming pool in a hotel in Europe”.
As a member of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux collection, the Monte-Carlo Beach welcomes this award as real recognition. At the centre of the legendary Beach Club, the Olympic sized mirror pool with its heated seawater and elegant vintage diving boards has been delighting swimmers since 1928. Learning to swim at the Monte-Carlo Beach is a long tradition. This luxurious place was recently made even more beautiful by architect-designer India Mahdavi.

“We are very proud of this double distinction which endorses the excellent work done daily by our teams, and the dynamics of our group. Our goal is to become the benchmark for luxury in Europe and this reward shows us we are moving in the right direction. I would also like to congratulate the Monte-Carlo Beach team which earned this well-deserved award, for its exceptional pool set on the Mediterranean Sea which is unanimously appreciated by our customers.” Didier Boidin, General Manager of Hotel Operations.
