Joel Robuchon

An exceptional Chef

One of the most influential chefs in French gastronomy, Joël Robuchon was born in 1945 in Poitiers. He won the country’s most prestigious awards throughout his career, including ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’ in 1976, ‘Chef of the Year’ in 1987 and ‘Chef of the Century’ in 1990. Visionary, creative with a strong desire to share his knowledge, Joël Robuchon introduced the public to delicious and accessible recipes. He also surrounded himself with talented chefs, who greatly progressed under his tuition.  Having completed the ‘formation Robuchon’, Christophe Cussac, one of his most trusted mentees, worked at many of the chef’s restaurants, including the three Michelin-starred Le Jamin in Paris.

In 2004, Robuchon and Cussac developed an original and innovative four-restaurant concept for Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo. In the wake of Robuchon’s passing, the chef’s restaurants at Hotel Metropole continue to perpetuate his memory through his signature dishes.

« It is a real house where you can be yourself, you can eat and drink, you can read, you can receive your friends in every part of the hotel and that's where you can understand the fundamental idea of the hotel: it is the idea of mixing the Rocker and the Duchess. There are no social barriers.»
Jacques Garcia

Jacques Garcia, craftsman of beauty

For the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, Jacques Garcia has above all focused on giving priority to a notion he sees as essential: that of space. « Originally, it was a building whose interior volumes were closed in upon themselves. For the hotel's rebirth in 2004, I thus re-invented the space, which explains the feeling of enjoyment one has as a guest… »

In 2017, this magician of good taste and luxury has returned to the site to cast yet more spells. « The decor has changed, though the spirit is still the same », explains Jacques Garcia. « Colours have taken on silky, melting, velvety nuances, caressed by soft and subtle lighting. It is a Riviera atmosphere that now reigns here, a dreamy reflection of a certain image of the Côte d’Azur, the fragrance of vacationing and the sumptuousness of palaces… » The very essence of the Garcia touch is conveyed by this sensation of refinement and comfort.

The Hôtel Costes in Paris, The Royal in Deauville, all Garcia! The name of Jacques Garcia opens the doors to a world of hotels both glamorous and elegant. If he had a calling card, it would be a blend of something aristocratic and non-conformist at one and the same time. « Etiquettes and styles are of secondary importance, » he says. « It's the atmosphere you create that really counts, when you simply feel at ease somewhere… » Jacques Garcia, craftsman of beauty who knows no frontiers!

« At the Metropole, I wanted to introduce a different touch. My initial idea was a cosmo-politan, Riviera Chic ambiance. Also a bit like a family residence, as this hotel is a palace where one really feels at home. »

"Haute couture" sound designer

Béatrice Ardisson serves as the Sound Designer for Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo and Spa Metropole by Givenchy where she curates the music played throughout the restaurant and lounge areas, creating an intimate atmosphere tailored to the hotel’s chic and sensual ambiance of “Riviera Glamour.”

« On arriving at the hotel, guests are warmly received and never allowed to feel anonymous, certainly not just a room number. A friendly human atmosphere reigns here with lots of finesse and delicacy, as if in a palace, to make life lovelier and more enjoyable. »
Didier Gomez

Interior designer and architect

An interior designer and an architect, he creates furniture and spaces throughout the world: boutiques, department stores, apartments, houses, museums. He creates a design with pure lines, but always makes sure that his creation provides superb comfort. He manages to create a social link by means of his design.

Yves Saint-Laurent, Cartier, the Carousel of the Louvre, LVMH, Celine, Louis Vuitton, Kenzo, Christian Dior; all these have had confidence in Didier’s designs.

In 2008, YOSHI, the first Japanese restaurant in the world by Joël Robuchon, opened its doors at the Hotel Metropole. Didier Gomez was responsible for the décor, which shows the poetic and modern vision of Japan by the cook with the most stars in the world. The restaurant room opens onto a Japanese inspired garden, designed by Jacques Messin. The landscaper in fact worked closely with Didier Gomez to create a harmonious contrast with surrounding city environment.

In 2017, Spa Metropole by Givenchy opened its wellness area within the Palace. The new design by Didier Gomez fits perfectly into the philosophy of the hotel, while respecting the chic and glamorous vision of Maison Givenchy.

Jacques Messin
Landscape designer

Jacques Messin, a Parisian landscape designer, has been working for over fifteen years in the world of gardens. He has achieved a wide range of creations, on Parisian terraces, in private gardens in France or in prestigious chateaux such as that of the Battlefield. His knowledge has been forged during varied high level studies. His sensitivity has been sharpened during his numerous trips to Asia, which have given him his vision of landscaping. Like a painter, he knows how to reveal the soul of garden silhouettes, how to show the fullness of lines and recompose the designs of yesteryear.

The entrance of the Hôtel Métropole Monte-Carlo is magnified by a superb arch made out of carved boxwood, with more than 500 feet. This work has never been made before and gives a first impression of the warm atmosphere that reigns in this independent hotel. The arch is followed by an avenue of Tuscan cypresses with stellate jasmines and shrubs with silver foliage and white flowers on the sides. The garden of the hotel reveals more than thirty different varieties, for more than 3,000 plants.

Jacques Messin also created YOSHI's Japanese-inspired garden to create a transition space between the inside and the outside, a harmonious contrast with the urban environment surrounding the property..

« My favourite restaurant: Yoshi, Joël Robuchon's Japanese restaurant at the Metropole, is the best in Europe. »
Karl Lagerfeld

The “Kaiser” of Fashion

Karl Lagerfeld is the master of reinvention. He has put his style at the service of the most famous fashion House: CHANEL for which he has been artistic director since 1983. He also manages the style of the House Fendi and its eponymous brand. In 2012, he was chosen to imagine and design the swimming pool of the Hôtel Métropole Monte-Carlo, which became Odyssey.

Happy he who, like Ulysse, embarked upon a long voyage... A beneficial port-of-call, a source of new energy, where time stands still. A pool, terrace, gardens, pool-house: the various areas entwine their curves, the different elements melt into each other around the heated sea-water pool in a great splash of light conceived by designer. With the fascinating photographic fresco on glass screens dedicated to the Greek hero's adventures, reality outdoes the myth in an epic version revisited by the artist. A unique experience.
