About Hotel Métropole ESPA Monte-Carlo
Hotel Métropole ESPA Monte-Carlo, centered just steps from Monaco's world-famous casino, reflects the classic belle époque style of the hotel's original construction in 1889 while mirroring the modern, Mediterranean aesthetic of Monte-Carlo's new look. Interiors styled in fabric-covered walls, Cordoba leather doors, and a glass-domed atrium set a glamorous, cosmopolitan tone, while an ornate living room containing portraits of Monaco's princes pays tribute to the hotel's history.
The hotel's spacious, three-level spa features signature treatments by ESPA, as well as an alfresco heated seawater pool. Guests can benefit from the hotel's central location on Casino Square, where designer boutiques and the famed Casino de Paris (immortalized in James Bond films) are just steps away.
Hotel Métropole has garnered honors such as Condé Nast Traveler's 2009 Readers' Choice Awards' "Top Hotels" in southern Europe.

The three-level Métropole ESPA Monte-Carlo is a 21,505-square-foot (2,000 square meters) complex encompassing ten treatment rooms, including a couple's suite, a candlelit relaxation room, and a thermal suite consisting of a crystal steam room, ice fountain, sauna, and caldarium. A ground-floor outdoor garden area, complete with a heated outdoor pool, a serene teak sundeck, and a healthful restaurant and bar, is available for guests to relax and rejuvenate. Spa interiors incorporate natural materials and textures, such as pallasandra wood and slate.
ESPA's holistic philosophy is reflected in the treatment menu, which includes signature treatments ranging from the pampering 110-minute Purva Karma four-handed massage to the Yoshi Ki, which begins with a seaweed foot soak followed by a seaweed salt-and-oil scrub and reflexology massage. Spa-goers can also let trained therapists create a personalized sequence of services by arranging for ESPA Time (minimum two hours).
