The Martinez has been the socialite hub of the South of France for a century. The great and good have marched through its revolving doors including recent guests Eva Longoria, Nicole Kidman, and Steven Spielberg. This Art Deco masterpiece—refreshed following a complete renovation in early 2018, with guestrooms that now boast a contemporary twist courtesy of interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon—is more than just an ultra-luxe hotel. Non-guests can mingle with celebrities in the l’Amiral cocktail bar, bathe next to A-listers in the ZPlage beach club, or dine alongside minor royalty in one of the finest restaurants in the South of France, La Palme d’Or. The hotel also offers a popular bicycle-sharing scheme—and what deliciously cool bikes they are.
