This Palace hotel of unparalleled beauty features 73 guestrooms and suites (49 rooms and 24 suites), a private villa, an award-winning spa with products and treatments by Carita and Bellefontaine and an outdoor spa garden with sea views, Michelin starred restaurant Le Cap, in addition to casual dining at La Veranda and sea front dining at Club Dauphin overlooking one of the most beautiful pools in the world.
