Monaco Royals inaugurate chic new resort
Monte Carlo has just opened its first newly built hotel in nearly 80 years, and the Monegasque royals were out in force for the inauguration of the ultra-chic complex, which aims to re-create the heady atmosphere of the French Riviera in the Roaring Twenties.
The principality's sovereign of three months, Prince Albert, did the honours flanked by his two sisters, Princesses Caroline and Stephanie, and Caroline's husband Prince Ernst of Hanover.
Carefully planned in an L-shape to take maximum advantage of sea views for its more than 300 rooms, Monte Carlo's sophisticated new venue offers a lagoon, waterfalls, myriad spa treatments and a glass-domed swimming pool within a neo-classical design.
The idea has been to recapture the environment of the 1920s, when artists, writers and celebrities flocked to the hitherto undiscovered French Riviera to indulge their bodies with sun and sea-bathing, and stimulate their minds with intellectual pursuits.
Champagne and fireworks were the order of the launch evening at the
resort, which has been developed by the Societe des Bains de Mer company.
