Monte-Carlo Société des Bain de Mer’s flagship, the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo is delighted to announce an exclusive partnership with Chopard to celebrate the holiday season. The majestic 7-meter tree – which reins over the iconic, Belle Epoque hotel lobby – is inspired by Chopard’s signature Happy Hearts bracelet from their celebrated Happy Diamond’s collection, giving this year’s Christmas decorations a sparkling new allure.
Chopard’s Happy Hearts, which feature varying colors from the luxury brand’s signature collection – including turquoise, mother-of-pearl, onyx are wrapped around Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo’s Christmas tree, which is trimmed. Chopard’s Happy Hearts, which feature varying colors from the luxury brand’s signature collection – including turquoise, mother-of-pearl, and onyx – are elegantly intertwined with the Christmas tree.
Inspired by rays of sunlight falling on droplets of water, the tree is trimmed with a cascade of lights and diamonds that illuminate the entire lobby. To complement the tree, the hotel’s grandiose columns are harmoniously adorned with pine needles and sparkling lights, whose reflections in the mirrors create a stunning optical effect throughout the space. Accompanying the magical décor that fills the lobby, a fresh pine fragrance wafts through the air, recalling winters in the snow-capped mountains.
In addition to the hotel’s iconic lobby, Chopard’s emblamatic diamonds and hearts meet again in the exceptional Hotel suites, mythical Bar Américain and opulent Salle Empire. A great omen as 2016 comes to a close, the lightness of the celebrations embraces the carefreeness of a gentle, tender and happy atmosphere.

About Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo
Since its creation in 1864, customers from around the world have been rushing to the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, which, in the words of François Blanc, founder of Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer “surpasses everything that has been created until now”. Errol Flynn celebrated his wedding here, in the company of the whole of Hollywood; Winston Churchill has stayed in one of its suites. Still today, the elite continue to grace its doors: kings, princes, heads of state, artists and international stars. The legend of the Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo lives on! And while it is en route to its third ‘plenitude’ it is about to be turned into a palace-boutique with 50 rooms, until it is fully renovated in 2018.
