Hotel Majestic, the Christian Dior suite
The embodiment of glamour and refinement, the Majestic is one of the most sumptuous hotels in Cannes. A mythical place where the Art Deco aesthetic is present in every corner of the establishment... Its proximity to the Palais des Festivals (less than 100 metres) makes the Majestic a very popular address for stars... From Robert de Niro to Gérard Depardieu, not forgetting Catherine Deneuve, they all want to stay there to enjoy its chic setting, its garden, its private beach where they can indulge in the joys of idleness with elegance. It is even possible to slip into the shoes of a member of the Cannes Festival jury by privatizing the hotel's cinema room, the Cinémathèque Diane.
Covering an area of 450 m², the Christian Dior suite is one of the most prestigious on the Croisette. With its unobstructed view of the Mediterranean Sea, it features the codes of the famous fashion house. A contemporary and minimalist chic decoration where Louis XVI style furniture blends perfectly with more modern pieces: a rotunda inspired by the ceiling of the Avenue Montaigne boutique, Louis XVI style tables, red cushions with pleated patterns, a Pullman armchair, a replica of the designer's personal desk...
It has already welcomed stars and Dior muses such as Charlize Theron, Kirsten Dunst and Bella Hadid...
