Outstanding contributions

Monte Carlo Beach is one a number of hotels and tourism facilities within the business group Monte Carlo Société des Bain de Mer.  The Group has a strong commitment to sustainability, promoting the concept of “An increasingly green luxury” which is delivered through its Sustainable Development Charter 2019-22.  Monte Carlo Beach and other hotels in the group have been certified by Green Globe, which is important in defining, projecting and affirming their approach. Areas of focus include energy saving, emissions and waste management. The hotel’s Elsa Restaurant is highly rated for cuisine, but the food is also fully organic. 

A specific project of the hotel is the creation of a biodiverse reef dyke 100 metres from the shore, which is designed to protect the beach and allow the development of marine life within a protected area. The new space, similar to a lagoon, is suitable for swimmers who are encouraged to act responsibly and protect marine life and habitats. The hotel also has its own natural forest at Pointe de la Vigie, for which it has now achieved designation for bird protection by the national conservation body LPO. It is becoming an essential refuge for local biodiversity. The hotel also has a strong community engagement, including educating local children on ecology and supporting charitable work with homeless people.
