From hotels to restaurants to chic beach clubs, there is perhaps no region of the world where design and culinary savvy meet stunning scenery and magnificent culture like they do in the Mediterranean region, where some of the “hottest” venues exist for those wanting to enjoy it all.

On well-known Pampelonne beach in the south of France, Bagatelle St. Tropez recently opened new additions to its restaurant and Sam Baron-designed beach club, including a trendy pool and beach bar. Bagatelle Mykonos, a new Bagatelle outpost in Greece, designed by Fabrizio Casiraghi, is an ode to the Mediterranean/Aegean region, with its Mykonos village location and incredible cuisine.

 

With décor inspired by the surrounding sea and white stone of the Greek landscape, Beefbar Athens, located within Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, displays craftsmanship and raw materials in its design, exuding a relaxed yet refined ambiance with, of course, breathtaking views of the Eastern Mediterranean’s Saronic Gulf.

Located just a few minutes away from the bustling Medina in the heart of Marrakech, Movenpick Mansour Eddahbi is a 5-star oasis of calm. Its fresh design revitalizes the vision and achievements of the Sultan of the Saadian dynasty.

 

Decorated by interior designers Marc Hertrich and Nicolas Adnet, Sofitel Marrakech is a modern take on a traditional Moroccan imperial palace. The interiors of this hotel are based around an emerald green and sapphire color scheme, paying homage to the feathers of a peacock, the sacred animal of Morocco.

After previously designing rooms in the Rivoli Wing, Studio MHNA continues its collaboration with Negresco Hotel in Nice, France, a palace that seems to reinvent modern luxury by interior design of the property’s restaurant La Rotonde.

 

In Cannes, on the seventh floor of the Radisson Blu hotel, Vertigo offers the most beautiful panoramic view of the Bay of Cannes. With a 100-seat dining room and a terrace with 180 seats, Vertigo is one of the most desirable venues on the French Riviera for leisure or group business dining.

Located in the beautiful Croatian town of Dubrovnik, overlooking the Adriatic coast, sits the remarkable 5-star Rixos Premium, recently renovated by interior designer Ina Rinderknecht. Inspired by the surrounding culture, architecture, art and fashion, it reflects the ethereal light of the Mediterranean/Adriatic region, as well as the vibrancy and mesmerizing history of Dubrovnik.
