Get ready, Saint-Tropez. Hotel Byblos—the Côte d’Azur hot spot that's a favorite of the jetset crowd—is readying to open for the season. The hotel has been a mythical landmark on the French Riviera since 1967. Now helmed by Antoine Chevanne (CEO of Groupe Floirat) and Christophe Chauvin (General Manager), the five-star property has 51 rooms and 45 suites, completely redesigned and refurbished. Even the smallest room offers more than 320 square feet of living space. Choose a suite with a terrace and you’ll have views over the beautiful swimming pool and olive tree patio.
Though the hotel is just steps away from the Place des Lices in the heart of Saint-Tropez, there’s really no need to leave the premises: eat breakfast under the lemon trees at The B.; get a massage at the Byblos Spa by Sisley; sup at Spoon (an Alain Ducasse creation); then party with the in crowd til the wee hours at Les Caves du Roy, the nightclub that’s become a symbol of Saint-Tropez nightlife.
