New to Five Star Alliance: Hotel du Cap Eden Roc

By: Five Star Alliance

Hotel du Cap Eden Roc might be 100 years old, but it's one of the newest hotels in the Five Star Alliance collection. Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc has always been renowned for the refined luxury of its rooms, suites and villas but especially for their glittering settings overlooking the azure sea and the private parkland, with its swaying pines and Riviera palms. Following an extensive restoration project, the hotel's elegance and appeal has been further enhanced.

Cinematic Beaches: The Hotel Martinez Has the Best Private Beach in France?

By: Christopher Roney

What happens when you combine the location of perhaps the world's most famous film festival with an amazing beachfront? I could give you a bunch of illustrative analogies, but don't let me spoil the surprise. Why don't you head to the Hotel Martinez and find out for yourself? Zplage, which is both the hotel's private beach and the technical term for when your shirt gets stuck in your zipper, is one of the premiere beaches in the world. With over 400 sun lounges and a vast pontoon, you're free to enjoy the sights of the ocean and tan on the French Riviera, all without having to even dip your toes in the water unless you'd like. Dine right on the beach at the Zplage Beach Restaurant, or head indoors for a two-star Michelin experience at the Le Relais Martinez. The piano bar, heated outdoor pool, and 2500 sq ft of conference space mean that the Martinez can host whatever event you and your operating budget can dream up. It's a tragic oversight that so many people who think of France don't look past Paris because France has far more to offer. If you take a trip a little bit off the beaten path, the Hotel Martinez will make you quickly forget the way back, and you'll be so enraptured, you may even forget to return home.
