More Glitz & Glam for Cannes


The city of Cannes is about to garner even more glitz and glam. Palm Beach Cannes, a renowned hotspot on the French Riviera since the 1920s, is poised to unveil its doors once again during the Cannes Film Festival following an extensive four-year restoration. The revitalized venue will introduce the Riviera's inaugural waterfront saltwater pool, boasting breathtaking vistas of the Bay of Cannes. Alongside this, guests can indulge in amenities such as upscale boutiques, a serene wellness sanctuary, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and an expansive ballroom.



Restored with meticulous attention to detail, the waterfront resort draws inspiration from the opulent Palace of a Thousand and One Nights, maintaining the captivating allure of its cinematic heyday. Commanding spectacular views of the Bay of Cannes, it has hosted a myriad of esteemed guests, including the likes of Grace Kelly, JFK and his extended family, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and politicians such as Winston Churchill. This revitalized resort promises to fuse timeless elegance with modern sophistication, making it a coveted destination for the discerning elite of the Côte d'Azur.


Per the designer's specifications, the complete renovation employs noble and sustainable materials to achieve a harmonious synthesis of modernity and tradition.



Palm Beach Cannes will feature a new casino and a selection of acclaimed restaurants. Among these are the culinary delights from Chef Yiannis Kioroglou at La Petite Maison, alongside the unique ambiance of the cabaret lounge and restaurant, Medusa. Tamarin, a South American-inspired restaurant hailing from St. Barths, and making its debut venture beyond the Caribbean. And the renowned Nammos Beach Club and Restaurant and Zuma, an upscale Japanese Izakaya establishment.


Nestled within Palm Beach lies the Members' Club, an enclave exclusively reserved for a meticulously curated list of members, fostering an international community of epicurean aficionados. Members enjoy privileged access to distinctive venues, including the Members' Bar, the renowned Palm Beach pool and its accompanying restaurant, and the Health Club facilities.



Constructed in 1929, the property has undergone numerous transformations, completely revamping its original architectural style. Today, it stands as one of Europe's most notable developments in 2024. Renowned architects Caprini & Pellerin, headquartered in Cannes, have skillfully preserved the essence of the original Hispano-Moresque and Art Deco design while modernizing the resort for the 21st century.
