InterContinental Carlton Cannes in the south of France is adding seven prestigious new suites to ensure it continues to fulfil the growing demand for private and exclusive accommodation options.Ê Unveiled this summer, the suites will be built on the top floor of the hotel and feature superb terraces, giving stunning panoramic views across the Bay of Cannes.
Each suite will be lavished with materials of the highest quality, beauty and refinement. Iroko hardwood floor, wood-panelling and soft silk fabrics will accompany classic furnishings with suede and leather trim.
The bathrooms will exude pure luxury using a stunning combination of glass and mosaic marble. All rooms will have state of the art technology including a plasma screen, home cinema, cable and satellite TV, DVD-player and high-speed internet access.
Designed by renowned French interior designer, Nicolas Papamiltiades, the spirit of the decoration echoes the famous style of the French Riviera in the fifties. This design was prompted by the hotel’s heritage, playing host to many of Hollywood’s greatest names such as Orson Welles, Rita Hayworth and Elizabeth Taylor.
A spectacular renovation programme for the hotel building and its guest-rooms commenced in June 2000 including the restoration of the façade under the ‘B‰timents de France’, (the French equivalent to UK body, English Heritage).
InterContinental Carlton Cannes has benefited from a share of the $1 billion spend committed over five years to bring flagship InterContinental properties around the world back to their former glory.
InterContinental Carlton Cannes has 337 rooms, including 34 suites.
