Rediscovering opulence: The refreshed Carlton

After a much-anticipated two-year restoration, the esteemed Carlton Hotel in Cannes has emerged from its cocoon to reveal a beacon of enduring sophistication and contemporary opulence. Now operating under the prestigious Regent Hotels & Resorts and IHG Hotels & Resorts, the renamed Carlton Cannes has undergone a metamorphosis, inviting travellers to rediscover its legendary charm and unparalleled hospitality.

Under the creative direction of designer Tristan Auer, the Carlton’s transformation blends understated Art Deco elements with coastal charm. Auer’s vision seamlessly blends the hotel’s historic grandeur with a fresh, breezy atmosphere that allows the gentle breeze of the Mediterranean to waft through its corridors. The result? A sanctuary of serenity, accentuated by refined design touches such as softly tinted walls and a deliberate absence of artwork, allowing the hotel’s natural splendour to shine through.

Spanning over 20,000 square metres, the rejuvenated Carlton introduces a host of new attractions to captivate even the most discerning guest. Its expansive infinity pool, the city’s largest, sparkles under the Mediterranean sun, complemented by a sundeck with inviting cabanas.

Enter the lobby and be transported to an era of past glamour. Petal-pink Venini chandeliers cast a soft glow over frescoed domes and majestic marble columns, meticulously restored to their former glory.

Architect Richard Lavalle’s meticulous restoration breathes new life into the Carlton, peeling back the layers of time to reveal the hotel’s original splendour. From the lobby to the Camélia Tea Room, every corner exudes an aura of timeless elegance, inviting guests into a realm of refined indulgence.

Culinary delights await at Rüya, the Carlton’s newest restaurant serving Anatolian cuisine. Meanwhile, Bar 58 sets the stage for evenings of spirited revelry with its fusion of Art Deco sophistication and contemporary panache, championing sustainability and local flavours with its farm-to-bar ethos.

For history buffs, the Carlton offers the chance to walk in the footsteps of legends. Room 523, where former President Barack Obama stayed during the 2011 Leaders’ Summit, holds a special place alongside Suite Harvey, where the American delegate to the first League of Nations conference in 1922 stayed.

Nestled in the heart of Cannes, amidst the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera, the Carlton Cannes is a timeless symbol of luxury and refinement. With its rich history and reimagined future, the newly rebranded Regent Hotel invites travellers on a journey of rediscovery, where every moment is infused with the enchantment of Cannes.
