February 15, 2024,
Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat, France

Nestled within 17 acres (7 hectares) of lush gardens on the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat peninsula, the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel reopens for the spring season with several vibrant updates. Situated in the heart of the French Riviera on the Peninsula of Cap-Ferrat, the Hotel invites guests to kick back and recharge, tuning out from the hustle and bustle of daily life and tuning into some serious relaxation.

New Penthouse Suite

The Hotel is enhancing its accommodation offering with the opening of a new Penthouse Suite, with interiors by acclaimed Parisian designer Sybille de Margerie. Launching this summer, this haute couture hideaway will seamlessly blend classic vibes with modern flair. Sleek lines, earthy tones and plush furnishings made with carefully chosen materials reflect exquisite craftsmanship, with stone accents that serve as subtle nods to nature, making guests feel in tune with their surroundings.

Guests will be able to slip out onto the sprawling terrace to unwind in lounge chairs or soak up stunning sea views from the open-air whirlpool tub. Designed by French architect Luc Svetchine, the terrace will be perfect for outdoor dining, with a spacious dining area and a cosy corner decked out with cushioned seating. A secondary terrace accessible from the second bedroom will offer additional dining and lounge areas for ultimate relaxation.

New Vibes at Club Dauphin

The Hotel’s iconic Club Dauphin returns for the season sporting a fresh new look. Mediterranean shrubs, lemon trees and olive groves make an appearance not only on the menus but also on the dishes, creating sunny coastal vibes. Inspired by vintage posters, the new design channels a chic Mediterranean feel, painting the Club as the ultimate retreat for those seeking sophistication and relaxation, all while serving up mouth-watering charcoal-grilled meats and fish dishes.

The open plan kitchen has been enlarged to make room for a trendy crudo bar decked out with displays of fresh fish and seafood, and a counter stacked with tempting homemade pastries and Italian ice creams. The bar counter has also had a makeover, with an extended layout with a sleek glass window that perfectly frames the panorama. When it comes to the menu, guests can expect a curated selection of light, fresh dishes that celebrate seaside flavours, including crudos, salads and mains cooked to perfection in the Josper charcoal oven, alongside the chef’s tantalising specials – each as Instagram-worthy as they are delicious.

New Romance in Cap-Ferrat Offer

The Hotel has launched a romantic offer for couples, ideal for celebrating a special anniversary or simply to enjoy a spontaneous getaway. Guests will stay in a Specialty Suite, an indulgent hideaway where they will be welcomed with champagne, flowers and sweet treats. The offer includes a deeply relaxing couple’s massage in the Spa, where experienced therapists leave guests feeling revitalised and recharged. In the evening, guests can indulge in a dreamy romantic dinner for two at La Véranda.

Lush Garden Design at La Résidence

At La Résidence, communal areas have been redesigned to capture the essence of the French Riviera’s natural beauty and artistic flair. Decorative pots, cosy seating nooks and stylish pendant lights come together to create a welcoming homey vibe. Walls are adorned with mosaic panels that play with light, brightening up the hallway and adding a touch of warmth to the corridors. Murals in soft tones of peach, brown and white reflect the lush landscape outside, blending seamlessly with the building’s structure. A chic floor rug in soft shades of coral and pink adds a pop of colour while guiding guests to their rooms.

New Culinary Offerings

Le Cap - This season, Le Cap is all about celebrating Cap Ferrat’s vibrant flavours and ingredients, focusing on five main pillars: Greens, Seaside, Contemporary Niçoise Favourites, Mediterranean Cuisine and Local Specialities. Executive Chef Yoric Tièche crafts each dish using fresh herbs, plants and fruits straight from the Hotel’s vegetable garden, while guests can dive into his sunny Seaside creations prepared with the day’s catch, savouring local ingredients sourced from small and medium-sized local producers. Tièche sources ancient grain flours from the Haut-Var region and lamb from trusted farmers in the Vésubie Valley, while fresh greens are delivered twice a week straight to the kitchen by local market gardeners.
