Now this is luxury.
My 30th birthday was a few weeks ago and for about a month before, my guy declared to me everyday leading up to that he had a surprise… I would be lying if I said I never told him to shut it. Ok, I joke. I think. I don’t remember anyhow. The point is, he’s really good at surprises.
We arrived in Nice, France (only a 2 hour flight from London–Europeans are seriously so lucky) and got driven over to the sweet, coastal town of Cap d’Antibes. We stayed at Hotel Belles Rives for the first couple nights then we moved over to the grand-finale-of-a-surprise: Hotel Du Cap.
Let me start by saying, this hotel is legendary–and by legendary I mean all the film stars have stayed here, it’s a Cannes Film Festival go-to and Madonna’s favorite. But beyond that, it’s pure French elegance and style. It’s dreamy, opulent, timeless… I really think photos will do a better job telling the story. Oh and I found out they do accept dogs (20 pounds and under) so I couldn’t wait to share it here! We’re already planning on bringing the frenchies back this year. 🙂
The infinity pool and private sea access are just breathtaking. They even have swings and diving boards to jump off! It was too chilly to swim in the ocean (late April) but the pool was just perfect. I can just imagine how much the pups would love it here… gorgeous gardens and forest surround the property–feels like a fairytale, honestly. Their Sisley Spa is also a must. I had one of the best facials…
Everything about this place feels decadent and lush… my 2nd favorite hotel in the world so far (#1 spot is forever taken by Amangiri).
