Cheval Blanc St Tropez
Marvel on the Med
What it is
A dreamy seafront retreat with subtly nautical rooms, a modernist waterfront pool, a three-Michelin-starred restaurant and a humming bar.
What it isn't
Lacking a spa, and this one is worth traveling for—with Guerlain products, a hammam, and a snow shower.
What we think
“Picture perfect” are the two words that come to mind when we conjure Cheval Blanc St. Tropez, and no surprise; French starchitect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, who designed portions of the Musée du Louvre and Musée d’Orsay, is the man behind the interiors here. Even the starter rooms at Cheval Blanc are nothing short of divine: each one adorned in a calming palette of cloud whites, teak blonde woods and yacht blues, with a terrace that peeps out on the Mediterranean or the Maison’s courtyard. Even at 330 square feet they don’t feel snug (thanks to that gentle Cote d’Azur breeze), but if you’re traveling en famille it may be worth upgrading to roomier digs, like the Duplex Sea Suite. The two-story hideaway has a 605-square-foot floor plan, a pair of dressing rooms, a rain shower in the spa-like bath, and two terraces that peep out on the Bay of Saint-Tropez.
You're here because
They dote on little guests as much as their parents with their teensy robes and slippers and toothsome kids menus.
Every Michelin-starred restaurant sets your pulse racing, but there’s something ultra enchanting about a coveted three star restaurant. At La Vague d’Or, you can see why it’s earned that accolade from your first bite of bacon-wrapped rabbit with chestnut honey and rosemary foaming broth.
