    Monte Carlo Beach

    A low-slung 1920s ‘Riviera Red’ beauty, the Monte Carlo Beach sits right by a cyprus-circled beach and Olympic-sized saltwater pool. Once the scene of between-the-wars scavenger hunts and costume parties, care of socialite Elsa Maxwell, it’s again firmly back on the Monaco map, sporting an elegant India Mahdavi refit. Rooms are gently nautically themed (ah, how I love a porthole), and done in bold primaries that nod both to the hotel’s glory days and to contemporary tastes. The hotel’s relatively modest size – there’s 40 rooms – mean it’s not hard to imagine you're staying at someone's sprawling Med estate.
