Our favourite rooms
Luxe room Edith has its own bar and wine cellar – both notable features in our books. For a foliage-filled view, pick Luxe room Juliette for its landscape-showcasing perch. Alternatively, for a mini-manor-house feel, try Prestige room Lauren, where a stately living room and bedroom lead out to a huge private terrace, garden and plunge pool, and the oversized ensuite has its own massage area.
In addition to the private plunge pool outside most suites, there’s a larger, infinity-edged, unheated version in the grounds, lined with loungers and curtained cabanas and soundtracked with light lounge music. Want a cocktail? Snacks? Someone to gently massage you in the sunshine? All can be arranged.
Book a bespoke treatment (each will be customised to suit your needs) at the spa or at your own private massage table if your room that has one (several do) – fragrant herbal distillates are used for their healing and calming properties. The spa has six treatment rooms, including one for couples, and is open until 9pm daily. The gym sits close to the pool.
Leave your gadgets behind: each room has an iPad, preloaded iPod on a dock, PS3 and free WiFi. If you find your beach bag missing essential items, there’s no need to panic as towels, sun cream and sunglasses (and even the beach bag if you’ve forgotten that) are available to borrow.
The hotel has designated smoking areas, and smoker-friendly suites are available on request. All communal areas are suitable for wheelchair users and there is one suite fully equipped for disabled guests.
Small dogs can stay too, for €30 a night. A dog-sitter can be arranged, as can a special Muse doggy bed. See more pet-friendly hotels in St Tropez.
A cot can be added to rooms for €95 a night. Children are welcome in the hotel restaurant, where there’s a dedicated menu, highchairs and booster seats.
