Grand Hotel du Cap-Ferrat Review: This grand hotel from the Belle Époque is hidden away in fifteen acres of lawns, copses, and flower beds, but overlooks the sea. The Sazale group, a Japanese concern, invested plenty of yen to turn this into one of the Riviera's top luxury hotels, complete with an Olympic-sized swimming pool. The British decorators who embellished the lounges and rooms have done a bang-up job, creating an atmosphere that is elegant yet relaxed. The clientele is younger and less flashy than one might expect. The Club Dauphin restaurant offers poolside dining. Piano bar. Relais et châteaux.
