Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo

Children take pride of place

The Hôtel Hermitage is the perfect luxury hotel for families. This summer it is opening its new Kids Club, in partnership with Bonpoint.  

From 1 July to the end of August, the Jardin des Princes is dedicated to children – and the hotel’s mascot, Gustave the cuddly toy, is ready and waiting for them. The Kids Club, located in the Jardin d’Hiver – famous for its dome by Gustave Eiffel – will welcome guests’children during all school holidays (except the February break). Filled with cushions, toy cars, dolls, cuddly toys, books and Lego, the club, which is run by licensed childminders, combines the timeless, bold world of Bonpoint, the French childrenswear brand, with the luxury hotel’s famous hospitality. “Bonpoint shares our pursuit of excellence. We have the same DNA,” says general manager Louis Starck. Every care has been taken to ensure children have a wonderful time. “We aim to take all their needs into account and create the ideal conditions to make their stay as enjoyable as possible. The proof of our success will be if our young guests want to return to the Hermitage because they have had so much fun! The Kids Club offers a variety of activities, such as weekly cookery classes, and as soon as health restrictions are lifted it will organise visits to the Musée Océanographique.” The family suites now feature toys and the Bonpoint brand’s iconic tepee tents, which come in different sizes according to the children’s ages. “Babies will have their own dedicated bath products, including a complimentary bathrobe, along with a complimentary Gustave cuddly toy.”

A tradition of holidaymaking
Over the years, the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo has established itself as a natural choice for families. “This luxury Belle Epoque hotel has a tradition of holidaymaking. People come here to unwind. It’s a simple, authentic place with a relaxed elegance that appeals to families,” notes Louis Starck. The hotel, which offers numerous suites and connecting rooms, has gradually developed products that attract this target audience. “The Kids Club formula was set up for our brunch offering in 2019, and it made sense to extend it to all the school holidays,” adds the general manager, who spearheaded these initiatives. “As a father of three children, their well-being strikes a chord with me.”

Kid’s Club open from 
10 am to 8pm for children aged 6 and over
