Carlton Cannes reopens

Chambre Vue Mer, Carlton Cannes, A Regent Hotel

The iconic Carlton Cannes, A Regent Hotel, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ luxury and lifestyle portfolio and owned by Katara Hospitality, reopened its doors in March this year.

The epitome of elegance and the ‘Grande Dame’ of Cannes’ hotel scene, the property’s majestic Belle Epoque facade – framed by twin domes - has been breathtakingly restored giving new life to this historic gem. With 332 rooms and suites – 72 of which have a sea view – and 37 branded residences, the hotel has been reimagined by acclaimed French interior designer Tristan Auer, famed for his careful-yet-bold approach to heritage buildings and bespoke work for the likes of Cartier.

General Manager Giuseppe Vincelli said: “We are thrilled to reopen the doors of this wonderful building and truly look forward to welcoming our guests, loyal and new. What we have in this building now is a stunning blend of heritage and modernity, between our legacy and the many innovations we cannot wait to unveil.  This beauty of contrasts has been our leitmotiv. It mirrors that of this timeless Riviera elegance, and the effervescence of the world-leading Festivals in the city. It creates a journey from the Croisette’s blissful hubbub to the ultimate sanctuary underpinned by true Regent service.”

The two-year grand-scale renovation skilfully preserved the hotel’s historic features including its legendary façade resulting in a modern-day masterpiece. The addition of two striking wings, measuring 20,000 square meters and home to luxury residences, envelop the rear of the property. This has created an enclosed garden landscaped with 22,000 plants and flowers, peristyle alcoves, sleek sunbathing decks, handcrafted cabanas and the largest hotel infinity pool in Cannes. In addition, the hotel also has a brand new 900m2 fitness and spa complex – The C Club - which includes a full-size boxing ring and state-of-the-art gym, yoga and Pilates studio. Carlton Cannes, A Regent Hotel is one of very few landmark hotels recognizable from a plane. The commanding silhouette stands as its own beachfront city block, overlooking the prestigious beachfront promenade, La Croisette.
