About Mondrian Cannes
Mondrian has launched a hotel in Cannes that is exceptional in many ways. Located on the site of La Croisette's oldest palace, this five-star hotel is the tallest on the boulevard, the only one opening onto a garden, and the only one connecting the sea to Rue d'Antibes. When it comes to comfort standards, Mondrian Cannes defies all norms. Here, even the smallest rooms have a size of 36m2 plus a terrace, and the views quickly become magical. Furthermore, the establishment adds the vibrant notes of the Mondrian brand to the Cannes hotel landscape. Architectural glamour is infused into the common areas by the French-Brazilian agency Triptyque, with an artistic touch provided by photographer Mathilde de l'Écotais and a unique gastronomic experience guaranteed at the restaurant and bar Mr. Nakamoto: the destination is both local and international. Add to that a new gym and the white sands of Hyde Beach Cannes, Mondrian Cannes is the new jewel of La Croisette, the brand's first establishment in France."
