Your hunt for the most expensive hotel Côte d’Azur offers is almost over, since we’ve shared six of our top picks for your super luxury French holiday.

Hotel Barriere Le Gray D'Albion

It’s not just the price that makes Hotel Barriere Le Gray D'Albion one of the most expensive hotels in Côte d’Azur. The look and feel of the place is ultra-sophisticated and extravagant in all the best ways.

It takes a prime beachfront spot nestled between big-name boutiques and high-end restaurants, meaning you’re amongst all the glitz and glamour of downtown Cannes.

When you’re done painting the town red at the nearby luxury casinos, you’ll come back to rest in one of the many chic suites boasting finishings and furnishings by renowned French designer, Philippe Starck.

La Réserve Ramatuelle Hotel, Spa & Villas

At La Réserve Ramatuelle Hotel, Spa & Villas, you’ll spend your days soaking up the resort’s peaceful tranquillity. Wake up every morning to put on your uber-soft robe and admire the ocean views from the privacy of your balcony or outdoor terrace.

Then head for a buffet breakfast at the La Voile restaurant and book a massage for later on in the afternoon at the spa. It’s a slow and relaxing pace of life here, meaning you’ve got plenty of time to truly unwind and sip cocktails around the pool if you so wish. 

For the most lavish suite, book a stay in Villa 17, a 4,843ft² residence boasting your very own private swimming pool and six bedrooms, all with their own dressing rooms. You even get personal butler service for that ultimate VIP experience

Hôtel Cap Estel

Next on our list of the most expensive hotels Côte d’Azur plays host to is Hôtel Cap Estel. The biggest draw is its unique seaside setting in the charming village of Èze – a prime spot perched on top of a rocky cove looking out at vistas of crystal-blue waters. For a front-row seat, book one of the sea-view suites located on the eastern side of the peninsula. 

There’s so much to do around Èze too. Take a wander around the village and learn all about its medieval history. Then nose around the shops picking up souvenirs for loved ones and finish off the day with dinner back at the resort’s sophisticated fine dining restaurant, The Table of Patrick Raingeard.  

Hotel prices here currently start at £1,430 per person for three-nights. For a longer stay, pay £2,335 per person for five-nights or £3,240 for seven-nights. All flights included.

Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo

Take one peek inside the lobby of Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo and you’ll see why this is one of the most expensive hotels in Côte d’Azur. With its extravagant plants, gold chandeliers, and grand ornate ceilings, the excitement builds as soon as you pick up your suite keys and have your luggage taken up by the porter. 

With a connected country club and beach club, you’ll also find a wide array of five-star R&R options, like having a massage at the 75,000-square-foot Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo spa or playing a game of squash at The Monte-Carlo Country Club. All guests here get discounted access to the facilities, so browse through your options at the concierge desk and they’ll get you booked in.

Whatever you do, just make sure you dine at the three Michelin star restaurant, Le Louis XV - Alain Ducasse. Often dubbed one of the best restaurants in the world, expect exquisite gourmet cuisine and an extraordinarily-elegant venue fit for royalty. It’s definitely the kind of place to come suited and booted.

Hotel prices here currently start from £775 per person for three-nights. For a longer stay, pay from £1,245 per person for five-nights or from £1,720 per person for seven-nights. All flights included.

Royal-Riviera Hotel

Next up we have Royal-Riviera Hotel, a five-star resort that’s got pretty much everything you need for a sunny French getaway – chic suites to stay in, world-class restaurants to eat at, and plenty of amenities to keep you busy. Trust us, the whole fabulous experience is worth forking out for.

If your trip includes any special occasions like a birthday or anniversary, we recommend heading to La Table du Royal, a spectacular Mediterranean restaurant helmed by Michelin-starred chef, Alain Parodi. Each course is served with a wine carefully selected by a resident sommelier who knows exactly what dish goes with what local wine. 

Perhaps best of all though is the hotel’s private beach. Here you can have a relaxing day soaking up the sun or experience a rush of adrenaline by driving a jet ski across the ocean waves. It’s up to you!

Hotel prices here currently start at £700 per person for three-nights. For a longer stay, pay from £1,125 per person for five-nights or from £1,550 per person for seven-nights. All flights included.

Hotel Saint Amour - La Tartane

Last on our list of the most expensive hotels in the Côte d’Azur is Hotel Saint Amour - La Tartane. The luxe interior decor alone is worth paying the higher price for. Each suite is styled with natural colour tones, plush rugs, tasteful accessories, and dark mahogany furniture making it feel warm and homely.

For the ultimate luxury experience, we recommend stretching your budget even further by chartering the hotel’s private yacht and exploring the local seas and nearby islands. You’ll set off from Saint-Tropez harbour and spend a few days stopping off at must-see spots in the area. And don’t worry, the yacht comes well stocked with plenty of champagne. 

Hotel prices here currently start from £665 per person for three-nights. For a longer stay, pay from £1,065 per person for five-nights or from £1,465 per person for seven-nights. All flights included.

The most expensive hotels in Côte d’Azur FAQs



 

Is Côte D'Azur an expensive holiday destination?

The Côte D'Azur is known for its unmistakable sense of luxury, meaning it does tend to be pricier than other destinations across the Mediterranean coastline.

We recommend saving a little more if you’re planning a trip to the region’s most affluent places like Monaco, St. Tropez, and Cannes – but rest assured there are some cheaper towns and cities in the Côte D'Azur too. Places like Gourdon, Èze, or Biot offer plenty of French charm and glamour without completely emptying your wallets.

Can you charter a private yacht in the Côte d’Azur?

Yes, of course. In fact, we think sailing the Mediterranean seas is the best way to explore the region’s must-visit coastal resorts. You can cruise from town to town, docking up in glamorous harbours and venturing down the many lively promenades looking for a cocktail bar to grab a drink and a bite to eat. That's a great lifestyle, right?

We highly recommend Hotel Saint Amour - La Tartane for a private yacht charter. You’ll hop on board a large and lavish yacht boasting a lounge, dining room, and four bedrooms, each with its own ensuite – so every member of your travel party will have plenty of space and privacy.

No matter what your budget is, we’re confident there’s something for everyone in our full list of luxury hotels in France. To get the ball rolling on your trip, rely on our expertise to find you just the right accommodation.

And remember, not every destination in France is on the expensive side. Check out our collection of the best French luxury holiday offers for alternatives. We never skimp out on luxury!
