At a Glance
This luxurious, classic hotel across the street from the sea has resort amenities, such as a private beach, pools, and great dining choices as well as spacious suites.
Like its sister hotel, Paris’ Fouquet’s Barrière, the Hôtel Majestic Barrière mixes old world glamour with sleek lines behind its imposing Belle Epoque façade. However, where the Parisian property’s luxury takes on a more audacious, contemporary form, the Majestic remains more firmly rooted to a traditional sense of handsome.
Many guest rooms feature gold-and-crimson pinstriped sofas and heavy Champagne-colored curtains; other rooms are bolder, with rich beige accents over a black-and-white palette. It’s a more sober feel than one might expect beneath the gloriously bright-blue skies of Cannes, but the un-fussy approach is welcome and the bright upkeep of the rooms are a definite plus. The hotel also has a host of suites, including two penthouses, one of which has a private pool.
The massive property offers one of the best locations in Cannes, just steps away from those famous red-carpeted steps of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, the site of the Cannes Film Festival.
Who Should Stay
Families who want to enjoy the beach and pools at the resort and those who want to be near the center of Cannes and have views of the Mediterranean.
