What’s New at Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo This Spring

Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo has announced its upcoming plans to debut a new restaurant concept this spring. The independently owned luxury boutique hotel will soon invite guests and locals to indulge in a new fine dining experience.

Chef Christophe Cussac’s soon-to-open restaurant, Les Ambassadeurs by Christophe Cussac, pays homage to the original Les Ambassadeurs restaurant that existed at Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo in the 1920s. Cussac’s new Les Ambassadeurs will serve elegant contemporary Mediterranean cuisine inspired by his own culinary heritage; it will also house La Table du Chef ("The Chef’s Table"), which will offer guests a 360-degree view of the Joël Robuchon-protégé and his team at work. Cussac’s open kitchen concept aligns with his culinary style based on authenticity and transparency. Dubbed the “Cussac Style,” his golden rule is “three flavors per dish” to respect the overall balance of each plate. 

Designed by Jacques Garcia, Les Ambassadeurs by Christophe Cussac provides guests the option to sit at the counter or the main dining room. It will also have an invite-only “backstage” area, where VIP guests will discover an all-glass wine cellar containing a range of vintage bottles adjacent to a den of sweet treats made by in-house Pastry Chef Patrick Mesiano, with sights of ceiling artwork by Pierre Bonnefille. Guests will have the exclusive opportunity to speak to Chef Cussac and savor a selection of wine in this backstage area.

The onsite Spa Metropole by Givenchy—one of three Givenchy spas in the world—is offering two new seasonal experiences in celebration of the spring travel season. The spa has welcomed celebrity yoga coach Val Kahl to host her signature “Rebel Karma Yoga” weekly from now through May 15. Kahl’s approach to “Rebel Karma Yoga” is reflective of her wellness background in Los Angeles, and combines yoga sculpt with power yoga to promote self-confidence. Besides cardio, strengthening and stretching practices for the body, Kahl incorporates meditation to balance and stimulate the mind.

Spa Metropole by Givenchy has also introduced an exclusive makeup masterclass led by beauty expert and creator of “Metropole Makeup,” Joe Ghannam. Using all Givenchy products, Ghannam will share beauty secrets and advice tailored to each participating guest.

Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo introduces a new signature “Mood,” or themes of whimsical and poetic expression and imagination across its grounds from the lobby to staff uniforms, during a particular season. The hotel’s current “Au Jardin d’Hiver Mood,” which guests will enjoy through the beginning of April, has transformed the lobby into a lush botanical garden combining crystals and plants, inspired by the Côte d’Azur to celebrate the mild Mediterranean winter and the upcoming spring season.
