With its reputation for sophisticated glamour, it should come as no surprise that St Tropez has some spectacular boutique hotels. Some offer intimate suites, others a more luxurious Asian-inspired experience, but all are wonderful. Here’s our list of boutique hotels in St Tropez that are worth a stay.
The Hôtel Byblos is one of the most well known hotels in St Tropez. It has just under 100 rooms and suites all offering a different level of luxury. The pool is fantastic and the spa is one of the best in town. This is a 5-star French Riviera experience, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Its night club is legendary and super chic. One to spot the rich and famous. Book direct with the hotel.
This little Asian-inspired boutique hotel is in the heart of St Tropez. It was built for an Indian princess in the 1800s and still keeps much of its Indian origins in the decor and restaurants. It sits behind an unassuming front door in the heart of the village. It gets more lively at the weekends and they have a yacht you can take out after your trip to the hammam.
This 5-star hotel is nestled in the middle of St Tropez close to the Citadel. With 117 rooms, it isn’t small but it has everything you’d expect for a hotel of its size in a resort like St Tropez. It has two restaurants, two pools (one inside and one out), a spa, air conditioning and a private beach. It also runs a shuttle bus to all the local attractions.
This little bastide is now home to 26 rooms, apartments and suites. It has two pools, a spa, a fitness centre and two restaurants. People love the service and its great location (the Citadel is only a mile away). Check out their YouTube video here.
People love the little hotel Ponche situated in the heart of St Tropez’s oldest area of town. It is quite literally in the centre of everything, geographically and culturally. La Ponche is also the name of the little beach nearby (one of the three beaches that are actually in the town). It’s a great base to explore this lovely village – the Citadel is a short walk away, as are all the bars and restaurants where you can watch the big boats come in and out of town. It has 22 rooms and a nice terrace restaurant with a sea view.
The Villa Cosy is a collection of 13 luxury suites situated around a spectacular pool in the heart of St Tropez. Everything you’ll want to see and do is a stone’s throw away, although you might never want to leave. They have 24-hour concierge service, spa treatments, a private chauffeur and a wine cellar. What more could your heart desire?
After its success in Paris, the Hotel Sezz set up shop in St Tropez. It has 37 beautifully designed suites, that span across two acres, all within reach of the 25 metre outdoor pool. The rooms have been designed to allow in as much light as possible (the ceilings are five metres high). Many of the rooms have their own outdoor cascade shower and plunge pool. Pure bliss.
