Even just the name ‘Côte d'Azur’ or the ‘French Riviera’ evokes a special sense of romance. A honeymoon Côte d'Azur style equals romantic strolls along the beachfront promenades, lazy mornings wrapped up in the sheets of your luxury hotel suite, and date nights at some of the world’s most incredible Michelin-star restaurants. 

So, if you’re planning on whisking off to Côte d'Azur to celebrate your new beginnings, congratulations are in order! You’re off to one of the most romantic places on earth. 

To help you decide where to stay, here’s a look at the best honeymoon hotels in Côte d'Azur.

Get a little taste of Paris at Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo

It’s commonly known that Paris is the world’s ‘City of Love’ – and at Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, you can get a little taste of Paris with the added twist of Monaco’s ritzy nightlife. The whole hotel has an air of romance lingering in its grand ornate lobby and inside your private luxury suite.

We recommend staying in the Deluxe Room which offers just the right amount of space for newlyweds, including a private balcony to soak up the city views.

Wake up, order champagne room service, and head outside to people-watch the bustling crowds below. And for dinner, make sure you book a table at Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse, the hotel’s signature restaurant boasting three Michelin stars and a grand dining room fit for kings and queens.

Live the high life at Hôtel Barriére Le Majestic

Next on our list of the best honeymoon hotels in Côte d'Azur is Hôtel Barriére Le Majestic, a super-stylish five-star hotel situated on La Croisette, Cannes’ main promenade full of elegant bars, restaurants, designer boutiques, and hotels just as fabulous as this one. 

The biggest draw for honeymooners is its perfect location. Not only does this hotel take a beachfront spot overlooking the glistening Mediterranean Sea, but it’s also right amongst the glitz and glamour of downtown Cannes.

It''s a short walk away from Les Princes Cannes Casino where you enjoy a night of luck, fortune, and passion too. 

We recommend staying in the Christian Dior Suite, a spectacular room finished with haute couture Dior furniture. It boasts butler service and complimentary access to the hotel’s state-of-the-art fitness centre!
