Monaco is home to about 38,000 people, one in three of whom are millionaires. Safe to assume then, that they know a thing or two about luxury accommodation here. You may have to navigate your way past Ferraris and Lamborghinis in the street and a constant bobbing parade of superyachts on the marina, but there are some classy hotels that offer a sanctuary from the fast cars and casinos. If you’re having trouble choosing from the pantheon of exclusive properties, check out our picks of the best.

A relaxed harbourside boutique hotel, boasting an uninterrupted view of Port Hercules and its impressive spectacle of superyachts. Guests are greeted by a vintage sports car that was used in one of Monaco’s original Grand Prix races, but the hotel is more classic than themed. The interior decor is designed by Hermès and there is a separate colour scheme for each of the five floors, which house areas devoted to a fitness suite, sauna and hammam.

Monte-Carlo Beach

With vibes more like a private members’ club than a hotel, the Monte-Carlo Beach feels very exclusive – even more so when dining at the cliff-top restaurant as the sun goes down. Blending French chic with art deco details, it is designed with a minimalist elegance that carries over to every room. Guests have access to a private beach, which is tailor-made for water sports, or you can choose to relax in one of the luxurious cabanas surrounding an Olympic-sized swimming pool.
