The Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes has been the subject of a €45million refurbishment project, the first major since the 1950s. Designed to restore the hotel to its original quality, it has been authentically restored to showcase the original features first seen by guests in 1870 when the former owner of Le Figaro newspaper, Auguste de Villemessant, built it.
The owner, Mrs. Oetker, along with leading architect Luc Svetchine, has carried out the restoration with the focus being the utmost respect for the heritage of the property and the history of the hotel.
They have ensured that no detail has been left untouched and whilst the hotel has been totally restored and modernised, the soul and spirit of the hotel have been left unchanged.
The restoration project, initiated in 2007, includes the refurbishment of all rooms and public areas in the main building of the hotel; a new grill restaurant with sushi bar; a new swimming pool and beach area; a new restaurant and terrace; and a new kitchen area to service the famous Cabanas, where time has stood still.
New suites, with balconies, will each have a lounge, dressing room, bathroom and separate shower room.
All one-bedroom and two-bedroom have sea views, a private bar, LED TV screen with iPod player and sound proofing in all rooms facing the Cap Boulevard.
The jewel in the hotel’s crown, the Eden-Roc Suite, has also been completely renovated. With completely new décor and furnishings, the suite will now feature its own beautiful wooden pergola and an outside Jacuzzi on a 250m2 terrace offering magnificent views of the Lerins Islands.
Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc has two villas – Villa Eleana, which opened in 2010 and Villa les Cedres – which combine the first-class facilities of the hotel with the exclusivity and privacy afforded by a private villa.
