Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, situated in Antibes on the French Riviera is an award winning hotel, hallmarking what it means to be surrounded by luxury, and is ready to help create memories and experiences that will last a lifetime; for you and your guests.
Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc (formerly known as Villa Soleil) opened in 1870 with the purpose of becoming a writer’s retreat. Actioned by Auguste de Villemessant (founder of French Newspaper Le Figard), the getaway saw guests from the self-proclaimed Lost Generation; F Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway who would choose to spend time there, with the stunning views and remarkable service igniting ideas for their historic literature.
17 years later, Antoine Sella spent two years renovating Villa Soleil, which became Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in 1889. After 13 years of hosting awe-inspiring events, giving unprecedented levels of service and incredible experiences, the hotel received a renovation that would be authenticate exactly what it means to be surrounded by luxury. In 1903 central heating, private baths and an elevator were installed (alongside many other enhancements) setting the bar of what it meant to be a five star hotel. In 1914, Sella used dynamite to carve the Hotel’s iconic sea water swimming pool out of natural Basalt Rock, once again redefining what it meant to be surrounded by luxury.

A Royal Affair
Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc is synonymous with tranquility and paradise, which could be one of the reasons why it has been the desired retreat for many of history’s sought after personalities. This idyllic venue was where Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII spent their time after Edward chose to abdicate from the throne in 1936, due to the halcyon scenery and seclusion that the venue offered.
Once again the Hotel exceeded what it meant to host phenomenal service, and was awarded a merit of distinction for hospitality in 1945. If you choose to host your dinner party or wedding here, there is an unspoken agreement that no glass will be left empty, and no request is ever too small.
The Palace Status
In 1969 the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc was purchased by Maja and Rudolph Oetker. In 2007 the Hotel had a multi-million pound restoration, with a Champagne lounge built into the Eden-Roc Pavillion.
