The government and ruling family hold a majority interest in the Société des Bains de Mer et du Cercle des Étrangers à Monaco (SBM) which dominates Monaco as the largest employer, owning and operating everything from casinos, hotels, restaurants, golf clubs, & all in-between.
Not surprisingly all owned by SBM, aristocratically experience Monte Carlo at these hotspots:
Forbidden for citizens of Monaco to play in & associated with James Bond, you mustn’t leave Monte-Carlo without playing a hand in the casino.
This understated luxurious 5-star hotel inspiring relaxation & romanticism welcomes you with an Eiffel dome and along with its all-encompassing accommodations makes it one of the best places to stay while here.
For decades elite jet-setters have flocked to one of the most exclusive nightclubs in the world, Jimmy’z, where serene views and elegance combine with cutting-edge music, creating an unparalleled nightlife experience.
Alain Ducasse’s 3 Michelin starred restaurant in the Hôtel de Paris serves authentic cuisine with flavours and aromas that leave your senses satiated in ecstasy.
I’m unsure if SBM holds a stake in the Automobile Club de Monaco (although it would not surprise me) which operates the Monaco Grand Prix-perhaps the most glamorous & prestigious automobile race in the world.
If you have time while in Monte-Carlo, be sure to enjoy a drive along the Côte d’Azur (French Riviera) and visit Cannes & Nice.
