Our favourite rooms
In terms of design flourishes and sleek minimalist furniture, all rooms are created equal at Kube, classified purely by their size (S, M, L, XL, etc). Request a corner room for an adjacent pair of French windows and pool views. Room 223 (L) has Ligne Roset mini rocking chairs and a monochrome mosaic-clad bath. Room 226 (XL) has enough room to swing a panther in, plus breathtaking sea views. Families should request rooms either in the ‘400’ range or the B building, in the quieter, rear courtyard.
A gargantuan swimming pool carved from grey marble occupies an impressive stretch of the grassy lawn, surrounded by soft grey decking. There’s also a smaller pool in the courtyard area.
Binoculars for bay-watching the yachts from the hotel deck; a copy of F Scott Fitzgerald’s Riviera-set The Beautiful and Damned.
Pets can stay for €40 a day and there are outdoor smoking areas.
All ages are welcome: cots are provided free; extra beds for €75 and there is a babysitting service for €18 an hour.
