Hotel Highlights

  • A modern, minimalist hotel fresh on the scene
  • Party-people’s St Tropez location
  • Three bars to choose from inside your own hotel

Overview

Sitting atop a hillside on the coast road above St Tropez, Kube Hotel’s white walls, glossed with glass, shimmer a sugar-cubed minimalism that’s Miami cool. This boutique hotel embodies St Tropez’s party spirit, with two bars, stylish rooms and a wow-factor pool. The hotel has sprawling grounds to explore, up in the hills near the jasmine-scented mediaeval village of Gassin.

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.

Poolside

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.

Packing tips

Binoculars for bay-watching the yachts from the hotel deck; a copy of F Scott Fitzgerald’s Riviera-set The Beautiful and Damned.

Food & Drink

Hotel Restaurant

As sleek, white and modern as the rest of the hotel, with a feature wall of brown and white Tetris-style tiles, Kube restaurant is a contemporary space in which to linger under ice cube-like pendant lights over reinventions of French classics whipped up in the open industrial-chic kitchen.

Hotel Bar

Start with sundowners at the podium Martini Bar, then proceed to the stylishly cool Skybar on the roof for a DJ-soundtracked drink against a backdrop of pine tree-feathered hills with gull’s-eye views over the swimming pools, lawns and bay of St Tropez beyond.

Last orders

Breakfast is available until a hangover-friendly 1pm, with the option to chain-feed straight into lunch (12pm–4pm). Dinner is served from 7pm–11pm.

Room service

A light menu of sandwiches, pasta and burgers can be mustered 24/7.

Smith Insider

Dress code

Pucci, Gucci, Lady Ga-Ga (if you must) – Kube can take whatever your wardrobe can throw at it; Mr Smith should think sharp-suit-no-tie Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven.

Top table

Maintain the romance with a table away from the pan-clanking open kitchen.

Worth getting out of bed for

Flex your plastic and hit Place de la Garonne, to supplement your wardrobe with some of fashion’s most exclusive labels – Dior and Cavalli among them. For a more low-key spend, browse and barter in the markets at Place des Lices (Tuesday and Saturday mornings, 8am–2pm), where you’ll find traditional bed linens, cooking ingredients and gifts. Explore Pearl Beach (unleash your most fabulous swimwear) and body-swerve Nikki Beach, unless a champagne-soaked, topless-dance-inviting concept of a beach bar floats your boat. The azure bay of Saint Tropez flaunts a full CV of water sports – sample them for yourself at the main Pampelonne beach.

Local restaurants

For seafood-feasting on the quay surrounded by envy-inducing yachts and equally attractive clientele, dine at Joseph L’Escale at 9 Quai Jean Jaures (+33 4 94 97 00 63). White-linen-clad tables, vivid coral-coloured walls and furnishings, a leather bar and natural stone all add up to a stylish eatery and the enormous glass windows let you people-watch over fish soup and platters of jumbo shrimp. For a meal as warming as the French sun, indulge in a Moroccan feast at the popular Le Salama restaurant at 1 Rue des Tisserands (+33 4 94 97 59 62). Try the lamb tagine with prunes. Err on the size of moderation when ordering; portions are satisfyingly generous.

Local bars

Three words for you: Ice, Sky and Martini. The hotel's three bars compensate for its out-of-town location; although the Kube shuttle bus can ferry you into St Tropez for bellinis with the boat crowd.

Kube Hotel St Tropez

Anonymous review by Naomi Reilly, Beach-based writer

Mr & Mrs Smith have just returned from a review trip to this St Tropez boutique hotel, and just as soon as they’ve unpacked their deck shoes and diamonds, a full account of their stay in France will be with you. In the meantime, just to whet your wanderlust, here’s a quick postcard from Kube…

On a Côte d’Azur clifftop overlooking the yacht-speckled bay of St Tropez, Kube’s location alone earns it glamour points. Like its Parisian cousin, this Mediterranean Kube takes all the luxuries you’d expect from a boutique hotel and parcels them up in sleek, minimalist architecture. This 2009-built bolthole is consistently sleek, chic and devoid of fuss – its furniture, landscaping and even its light fittings are ruler-straight proof that square can be hip.

A super-long swimming pool, choice of two bars, extensive palm tree-dotted grounds and a modern French restaurant make Kube feel more like a resort than mere hotel. A free shuttle bus is incentive to roll off your sunlounger and head into St Tropez itself. But, should you feel the need to hire a car and explore the coastline, Port Grimaud and Sainte Maxime beckon from across the bay. 

The hotel helipad sets the tone at this exclusive hilltop retreat where relaxation is de rigeur and tanning is still in fashion. Whether it’s the served-till-1pm breakfast, the open-all-day martini bar or the daily DJ sets in the rooftop Skybar, you’ll find ample justification for labelling Kube a fabulous party pad.

We loved

I loved the service and the shuttle into St Tropez. Overall, nine out of ten.

Don’t expect

I thought that the design was not practical and I found the dining room to be crowded. I would've preferred the sun beds to have cushions, and the shower flooded my bathroom.

Rating: 9/10 stars
