The Carlton Cannes, jewel of the Riviera, is undergoing a renaissance thanks to the expertise of the finest craftsmen. Every detail, from the paintings to the mouldings and gilding, reflects the art of quintessence. Inside, an unprecedented change is taking place, with the best craftsmen selected for this exceptional project. The walls are stripped to reveal their original colour, while Carrara marble is carefully installed and earthenware in the shape of scaled fans is precisely arranged. The chandeliers in the Grand Salon have been restored, and new candelabras adorned with Murano glass have been added.
A secret garden bordered by a peristyle was created, offering a delicately mineral and vegetal promenade. Inside the walls, decorator Tristan Auer orchestrates the renewal by preserving the listed premises while adding a refined modern touch, inspired by the symbols of the French Riviera. The Carlton Cannes is rooted in the contrast between heritage and modernity, joining the new era of Regent Hotels & Resorts.
The Carlton Cannes reinvents itself to offer unforgettable moments to its guests. Discoveries illuminated by the omnipresent natural light can be experienced from the lively side of the Croisette or from the peaceful interior garden. This memorable experience is made possible by the ambassadors of the Carlton Cannes, and the human-centred philosophy remains intact.
General Manager Giuseppe Vincelli says he is proud and honoured to work with such passionate craftsmen, emphasising that the Carlton Cannes is first and foremost a place to live.
In Cannes, Mondrian is orchestrating the opening of a hotel where exceptions are the rule. On the site of previous Grand Hôtel, the oldest “palace” on the Croisette, located at the head of the boulevard, this is the only fivestar hotel to open onto a garden and offer a unique passage between the sea and the rue d’Antibes shopping street. In a crowning touch, the bright signature colors of the Mondrian brand enliven the hotel scene in Cannes. The architectural glamour of the common areas is the work of Franco-Brazilian agency Triptyque, while photographer Mathilde de l’Écotais lends an inimitable artistic edge, and Mr. Nakamoto’s restaurant and bar serve up an exciting culinary twist. When it comes to comfort, you can expect the highest standards at Mondrian Cannes. Here, the smallest rooms have a surface area of over 380 ft2 (36 m2), along with a terrace offering magical views. The addition of a brand-new fitness room and access to the fine sand of Hyde Beach make Mondrian Cannes the ultimate definition of La Dolce Vita.
