Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc Review
The Hotel du Cap is nestled among 22 acres of private gardens on the southernmost tip of the Cap-d’Antibes. There are 118 rooms in the main hotel and the Pavilion right beside the ocean, located a five-minute walk from the main hotel towards the water. This is where you’ll find the pool, lounge area and two restaurants, all with direct sea views. The spa and tennis courts are hidden among the hotel’s gardens, and the famous seawater swimming pool is nestled into the rock, offering a 180-degree view of the ocean.
Hidden away in a beautifully-tended rose garden, the Eden-Roc’s spa is housed in an airy, modern pavilion with two additional outdoor gazebos for massages. There are four treatment rooms, a hammam and sauna, plus a small, high-tech fitness center for yoga, Pilates and private workouts. There’s also a beauty center on-site for hairdressing, manicures and makeup. Another fun feature is the Children’s Spa (for ages 4-18), which offers kid-friendly pampering with natural, paraben-free products. Inside the buildings, expect 19th-century Louis XV and XVI décor throughout and paintings that are part of the Oetker’s private collection.
Between the excellent tennis club, the beautiful Pavilion area, the spa and the many scenic villages nearby (including Juan-Les-Pins, Cannes, Grasse and Monaco), you could easily spend two weeks here. For those with less time to spare, a four-night stay is perfect.
Who Should Stay
Travelers looking for relaxation within a refined setting. There are guests of all ages here: families with young children, couples looking for romance and longtime devotees who visit the hotel every summer. You will not find a hip bar scene, but you’ll certainly be spending time in an unforgettable place.
