Ready for a Glamorous Summer at Monte-Carlo Beach? You're in for a Treat
Oh, lucky you! As the warm sun starts to grace us, it's high time to indulge in some luxurious fun by the sea. Monte-Carlo Beach, the posh seaside resort operated by the Société des Bains de Mer (SBM), has flung open its doors with grand plans and fresh entertainment spaces for the season. Can you believe it? The hotel and club opened together for the first time this year, just in time for the Easter weekend, signaling the beginning of a fabulous season.
This year, Monte-Carlo Beach is buzzing with anticipation for the return of international clientele, with a strong comeback from our American friends. And guess what? The resort has been sprucing up during the winter, bouncing back from a little hiccup caused by a mighty wave on January 18th.
Get ready for the pièce de résistance: the grand opening of Maona, a swanky new cabaret-style venue, set to launch in late June or early July. With a seating capacity of about 100 and a stunning sea view, this outdoor hotspot will rekindle the glitzy spirit of Monaco's golden age of the 1960s and 70s. How fabulous, right?
At Maona, you'll find Riviera classics on the menu, like pissaladière, socca, and panisses, all expertly crafted by Beach's top chef, Vincenzo Giordano. But here's the fun part: SBM employees have been invited to share their cherished family recipes, with the best ones making it onto the menu throughout the season. As you savor your meal, a live pianist and diva will serenade you into the evening, followed by a mixologist whipping up delightful concoctions.
But wait, there's more! The resort has big plans for summer 2023, reviving the Vigie pontoon into a hip daytime club with a DJ spinning tunes from noon to 8 pm. Picture this: a vibrant ambiance where guests can wine, dine, and unwind.
Now, here's the scoop on Monte-Carlo Beach's gourmet restaurant, Elsa. They've decided to let go of the 100% organic certification from Ecocert. Why, you ask? It turns out the restrictions were cramping the chef's culinary flair. But fear not, Elsa will continue to focus on local, seasonal ingredients while still offering organic options. So, darling, what are you waiting for? Monte-Carlo Beach is calling your name!
