Pulling up outside Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée for the first time is like stepping into a time machine.
The building’s magnificent 1920s facade evokes an immediate sense of glamour nodding to a time gone by, specifically the roaring twenties when the age of jazz and glitzy Hollywood was at its peak.
The nostalgic appeal continues on the inside too, with each of the 187 suites finished with high-quality furniture and little accents of art-deco that bring the entire decor to brighter life.
The old-school taste and design is married with modern luxuries for your convenience, like having your own in-room Nespresso machine and a state-of-the-art entertainment system.
It’s a designer Côte d'Azur hotel you’ll definitely want on your bucket-list.

Next on our list is Hôtel Barriére Le Majestic, situated in a highly sought-after location on Cannes’ beachfront.
With its lavish restaurants and gorgeous Parisian decor, there’s no doubt it’s one of the best designer hotels in the entire Côte d'Azur. In fact, the hotel’s Penthouse Suite is designed by the one and only Christian Dior – one of the world’s most renowned fashion designers.
The aptly named Christian Dior suite is 4,844ft2 and boasts high-end finishing touches, like velvety fabrics, embroidered bed linen, and a brand-new cinema system.
You also get a personal butler who’ll wait on you hand and foot throughout your stay. It’s no wonder so many famous faces choose to stay here whenever they visit Cannes.

Another hotel inspired by the twenties art-deco era is Cannes’ Hôtel Martinez by Hyatt.
You will be in awe of the hotel’s charming sense of style, bolstered by immaculate white walls, bold graphic prints, and glistening furnishings. Take one peek inside and you’ll know immediately it’s a five-star hotel.
The hotel’s most luxurious place to eat is La Palme d’Or: a three Michelin star restaurant specialising in gourmet seafood dishes deserving of royalty.
With its countless awards and upscale vibes, this is a perfect place for special occasions and big celebrations. You’ll tuck into an exquisite three-course meal and sip France’s finest champagne.

If you’re after that quintessential French Riviera experience, Hôtel de Paris Saint-Tropez will not let you down. It’s the crème de la crème of five-star French hotels. You simply can’t get much more opulent than this.
The hotel’s eye for fashion is best showcased in its selection of private suites, especially the Presidential Suite “Dolce Vita.”
In this 1,400ft2 space, guests can sip on vintage wine picked out from the suite’s wine cellar, relax in their very own Jacuzzi tub, and admire unbeatable views of Saint-Tropez’s harbour from the private balcony. It’s the perfect place to order room service and watch million-pound super yachts sail by.

Another trendy hotel Côte d'Azur plays host to is La Chévre D'Or.
Although the interior design here tends to be more subtly glamorous, there’s no denying how extravagant the hotel’s unique leisure facilities are. For example, you can take to the skies in a helicopter or sail the calm blue seas in a chartered private yacht.
A helicopter tour really is the best way to take in the spectacular Côte d'Azur landscape and see the region’s most popular resorts like St. Tropez, Nice, or St. Agnès from a bird’s eye view.
And when the day’s done, you’ll head back to the hotel and get some well-needed shut-eye in a stylish and modern suite, complete with plush armchairs, traditional-style dressing tables, and striking paintings.

If it’s upscale splendour you’re after, look no further than JW Marriott Cannes.
Here fashion speaks through the hotel’s selection of contemporary suites and grand spaces like the stunning lobby – its sparkling chandelier, tall ceilings, and gold accents let you know right away you’re about to stay somewhere truly remarkable.
Most luxurious is the hotel’s rooftop pool, home to a snack bar stocked with plenty of champagne and spectacular panoramic views of Cannes.
For dinner, head to JW Grill Cannes: the hotel’s crowd-pleasing beachfront restaurant serving a combination of heart-warming favourites and exquisite French delicacies. Everyone will find something on the menu they like.

Last on our list of designer hotels is Hotel Metropole, Monte-Carlo. What makes it so special is the decadent colonial decor that’s cleverly brought into the 21st century with ultra-modern touches.
Dramatic period paintings fill the rooms with an air of sophistication and vintage-style upholstery adds a touch of grandeur everywhere you look. Most impressive is the Carré d'Or Suite: the hotel's biggest and most expensive suite boasting a plush king-sized bed to rest your head at night and a gold bath for your evening soak before dinner.
One of the biggest draws here for fashionistas is the swanky spa and pool area designed by top-tier fashion icons Givenchy and Karl Lagerfeld. Doing a few early-morning laps has never felt so glamorous!
