Luxury Palace Hotel Byblos, Saint Tropez

Hotel Byblos Saint-Tropez was recently promoted to ‘Palace’ status, one of the few French properties to claim this much coveted award. To qualify for the Palace distinction, hotels must have more spacious rooms than 5 star properties, better facilities and higher standards of service.

The Palace distinction highlights the influence of France around the world and reinforces the position of the luxury French hotel as an exceptional hotel on the international scene.

Since 1967, Hotel Byblos, the jewel of Groupe Floirat, has been a legendary icon of the Cote d’Azur for 45 years.

The luxury French hotel resembles a Provencal village composed of small buildings placed side by side. A roof made of curved tiles lined with ‘Génoises’; wrought iron balconies; fountains; small cobblestone squares; a hundred-year-old olive tree; palm trees; bougainvillea and jasmine — a total of over 400 plant species; an expansive patio; a large swimming pool, a waterfront bar; two restaurants, a Sisley Spa and the ultra-chic Les Caves du Roy nightclub.

The 91 room hotel including 50 suites which were fully renovated in 2011 are an icon of the Cote D’Azur, the luxury French hotel is the place to stay in Saint-Tropez.

The trendy hotel even boasts its own exclusive iPad and iPhone app offering a concierge service and much much more.  And from September 29 until October 7, the Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez – international sailing competition brings a real buzz to the hotel.

Set in the heart of Saint-Tropez the glamorous Byblos is the flagship hotel of the family owned Groupe Floirat, whose portfolio also includes the Black Legend nightclub in Monaco, La Réserve, St Jean de Luz and Les Manoirs de Tourgéville in Deauville.
