Maybourne La Plage is inspired by the golden age of the French Riviera


Calling all lovers of Instagram-famous hotspot The Maybourne Riviera: this ultra-modernist, ultra-luxurious hotel has opened its new suitably stylish beach club, and it’s a little slice of heaven on the Med.

Maybourne La Plage: Europe’s Hottest New Beach Club

Built above the picturesque town of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, it’s positioned right on the edge of the Cap Martin, between Monaco and the dramatic Italian coastline, so there are views of the Mediterranean Sea aplenty – and what better way to take in the sights than kicking back on a lounger at Maybourne La Plage.

Of course, the Maybourne Hotel Group is known for its elegance, design, and top-notch service, and continuing with this theme, the beach club has been inspired by the golden age of the French Riviera and Slim Aarons pictures of the Amalfi Coast.

Here, there’s a restaurant space and a beach with sun loungers, and in true style, guests can arrive directly at the sunbathing area by boat, mooring to the club’s wooden pontoon. For some bites, there is an intimate restaurant led by Michelin star Argentine chef, Mauro Colagreco; expect an informal seasonal menu with dishes such as linguine alle vongole, grilled lobster and octopus, burrata, and a reimagined Tropezienne. There is also a driftwood pergola, rattan furniture, fringed umbrellas, and hues of coral set against the aqua blue sea, call to summer, Mediterranean living.

The first French hotel from The Maybourne Hotel Group, who also owns Claridge’s in London, The Maybourne Riviera opened last year after a lengthy construction project. As expected, it’s endlessly glamorous, with multiple top-class restaurants and bars, a dreamy spa and a standout infinity pool offering one of the best views in the South of France.

Maybourne La Plage is open until 24 September, from 10am to 6pm. It will be home to 80 seats, 40 deckchairs, valet and skipper services, DJ sets and live music.

BOOK IT: Open from 10am till 6pm daily. Reservations can be made by phone on +33 4 93 37 50 00 or maybourneriviera.com.
