This luxury hotel is situated between the Citadel and the Place des Lices and embodies the relaxed yet sophisticated lifestyle of St Tropez and the Cote d'Azur.
This palace-style hotel has seen it's fair share of famous faces over the years, including loyal patron Brigitte Bardot, Honeymooners Mick Jagger and Bianca Perez in 1971 and American actor Clint Eastwood. Today it is still one of the most popular hotels in the region and is famed for its service as well as its iconic location.
Many of the guest rooms offer views over the pool and each once has been decorated to a very personal and individual level. The junior suites give guests a bit more space, as well as a view over the gardens or swimming pool. The deluxe suites feature spacious rooms
and living rooms, in an elegant and refined ambience.
The Riviera Suite is the most luxurious and spacious suite of the Byblos Hotel Saint-Tropez. Overlooking the pool, this 180 m² suite offers subtle comfort, comprising a large living room, two rooms with one looking onto a private terrace and three bathrooms.
This hotel is open from April until October.
First opened in 1967 the Byblos celebrates its 50 anniversary in 2017. Three days of special events and over 700 guests came together to celebrate the original opening, including the St Tropez goddess herself, Brigitte Bardot.
Ideally located in the heart of the village of Saint Tropez, close to the famous Place des Lices and the harbour, this hotel is designed as a true Provencal village.
The swimming pool offers a seaside atmosphere with a sunbathing deck. When the sun goes down, this dreamy solarium turns into a chic and trendy lounge. The hotel also provides a spa and a fitness area.
A visit to the famous nightclub, Les Caves du Roy is unavoidable. It has long catered for the international jet set and offers a uniquely glamorous and electric atmosphere.
The Alain Ducasse-created Rivea restaurant pays homage to the flavours of the Mediterranean and the poolside B Restaurant buzzes with cocktails and serves light snacks, mezze and other delicious Mediterranean inspired cuisine..

- "Outstanding service, both efficient and friendly. It would be easy for this beautiful property to have a quiet and cool feel to it, but the staff warm it in such a way as to make you feel special and welcome!" - Trip Advisor
Saint Tropez has been synonymous with glamour since sex siren Brigitte Bardot cavorted on its beach in a skimpy bikini , although this pretty fishing village had been luring artists with its pastel coloured buildings and mythical light long before that. For those wishing to go to Saint Tropez by public transport, it requires a bit of effort as it doesn't have a train station- take the train to Saint Raphael and transfer to a bus or ferry across the Gulf. For those driving (or sitting in a bus), be aware that the traffic going into Saint Tropez in high summer can be painful- the water taxi is possibly a better (and far prettier) way to arrive.
The food on offer in Saint Tropez ranges from the truly spectacular, to the spectacularly over-priced. But there are some wonderful restaurants to be found for all budgets, from the stratospheric but magnificent 3-Michelin starred Vague d'Or, to the local's seafood haunt in a shack by the beach, La Pesquiere. We've gone into detail about our favourite restaurants in our Saint Tropez restaurant guide.
Book My Restaurant
Head up the steep hill to the 16th century citadel, where there's a museum and beautiful views over the sea. (This is a lovely place for a picnic and enjoying the afternoon breeze.)There's also the House of Butterflies with thousands of butterflies on display, and the Annonciade museum, one of the longest established modern art galleries in France- you can see works here by Matisse, Bonnard and Signac among others.

Things to Do Nearby
If you fancy some designer shopping, Saint Tropez has some seriously exclusive boutiques- or you can visit the lovely central square of Place des Lices and its charming market for a more low-key spend. Walk up to the church for some of the best sunset views or go for a coastal walk and enjoy the amazing natural heritage of the region. Or just pass the time in a cafe watching the locals play petanque in the square under the plane trees. For a day dripping in Riviera glamour you should really dress up and head to the Saint Tropez Polo Club- or head out on the water with the superyachts by chartering a boat for the day. Kids will adore the Azur Park at nearby Gassin, with a rollercoaster, ferris wheel and waterslides. Finally, water-sports enthusiast will find a second home on Pampelonne Beach- as well as those who like to make themselves comfortable on a deckchair with a magnum of champagne...

The Golf Club Saint Tropez is actually located in Gassin, and offers an 18 hole, par 71 course set in countryside of hills, forest, vineyards and sea. It is relatively exclusive and therefore avoids the crowds you often find at other Riviera golf clubs. There is a golfing academy, an executive 9 hole course with driving range, and a spa and restaurant in a spacious, elegant clubhouse reminiscent of a fine Provencal farmhouse. There's also the highly regarded Golfe de Beauvallon further along the coast.
Book My Round
There are some of the finest clubs on earth in Saint Tropez (or at least their price tags will tell you so). When it’s time to get your dancing shoes on, there are three main options, all fairly guaranteed to provide a glimpse of celebrities, if you like that kind of thing. Caves du Roy has been considered the most prestigious club on the Cote d’Azur (and therefore the world) for over 40 years, while the VIP room is another notorious favourite with the jet set. La Bodega de Papagayo is the most lively and the easiest to gain entry to- although its clientele is still the young, the rich and the beautiful. There are also some great bars for people watching, as well as a low-key Irish pub- for full details see our St Tropez nightlife guide.
