On Monday 16th April in Monaco, the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer group inaugurated the Rafael Nadal Suite at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, in presence of HSH Prince Albert II. This inauguration comes during the 112th edition of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters, and the 90th anniversary of the prestigious Monte-Carlo Country Club.
1029: more than a suite, the mark of a tennis legend, that of the number 1 ATP player, Rafael Nadal, who offers his name to the suite, in which he has been himself staying.
10, like the number of victories that Rafael Nadal has chalked up on the clay courts of Monaco.
A suite inspired by the sports universe of Rafael Nadal
Discreetly enhanced with the cult objects that have marked the career of this exceptional champion – racket, T-shirt, tennis shoes that helped him win, and other photos immortalising his 10 victories in Monaco – this 92m2 suite looking onto the sea is in the image of the champion: elegant, discreet and inspirational.
The Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, an obvious home port. The latest hotel in the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer group is the official hotel of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters, but also home to the champions throughout the year. Its unique style, which combines luxury and simplicity, its attentive teams, its natural spaces which encourage meditation and its healthy and responsible cuisine have made this establishment the favourite destination of athletes.
For Frédéric Darnet, General Manager of Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort:
“Rafael Nadal is a prestigious guest, particularly well-liked and awaited at the hotel. He embodies all of the values we stand for: excelling oneself, humility, simplicity. We therefore wanted to show our respect and pay homage by naming this suite after him. He modestly accepted, and we would like to thank him”.
