To the point Read our review of the prestigious Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa, a little hidden gem nestled between Cannes and Saint-Tropez.

Right on the Côte d’Azur lies a little village that few people know about: Théoule-sur-Mer. And as well as being home to sumptuous red rock coves and inlets, this commune, nestled at the foot of the Estérel massif, is home to a truly intimate gem: the Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa.

In search of a place to relax for a few days last April, I decided to check into this five-star hotel, which is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Here’s my review.

Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa - Booking

Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Although the group was recently acquired by Hilton, it is still impossible to book Small Luxury Hotels of the World hotels with Hilton Honors points. But fortunately for us, it should only be a matter of time.

As I’d been wanting to stay at this hotel for years, I decided to treat myself and pay out of my own pocket. In high season, prices per night range from 500 to 600 euros. But since I stayed there at the end of April, I was able to stay in a Deluxe room with sea view (the second entry category) for 350 euros a night.

Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa - Location

Located just twenty minutes from Cannes, the Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa, the second Côte d’Azur jewel in the Tiara chain, along with the Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur, is a seaside hotel whose pink-gray façade, enhanced by balconies and terraces, overlooks a sumptuous private cove with azure waters.

Although the hotel is not far from the main road, it remains a truly intimate setting, set between red rocks and the infinity of the Mediterranean. Pines and palms encircle us as the sea lulls us with its sweetest melody.

To reach this little corner of paradise, a car is recommended. If you don’t have one, you can always rent one through a Sixt agency in Cannes or Saint-Tropez. It will make getting around the region much easier.

However, the Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa offers its guests a private transfer service, at an additional cost. And a golf cart is available on site to simplify transport to the Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur, 700 meters away. Because it’s possible to enjoy the facilities of the chain’s second hotel while staying at the Tiara Miramar.

Check-in is from 3 pm, while check-out is until 11 am. Since we were traveling by van and it was too high for the hotel’s underground parking, we parked it on the adjacent street and walked to the hotel entrance, just a few meters away. Street parking is free, but underground parking is not.

As soon as you arrive, you feel a sense of well-being as the sweet scent of orange blossom awakens your senses. The welcome is warm and friendly. The formalities take place on an armchair in the center of the lobby, where the dark oak wood and wide, graphic seats give the décor an atmosphere reminiscent of the 1930s. There’s even a games room nearby.

Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa - Deluxe Sea View Room

My review of the room is a little more mixed. Having chosen a Deluxe Sea View room, we were able to contemplate the immensity of the sea and fall asleep to the sound of its waves. For me, such a panorama is priceless. The only downside was the size of the room.

The room has a surface area of 27 square meters, while the Superior room (the first entry category) has a surface area of 28 square meters. Needless to say, it feels a little cramped. But as the weather was fine, we spent most of our time on the terrace, taking in the view.

And given the size of the room, the bathroom is also very narrow. There’s a large walk-in shower, but no bathtub. Nor is the toilet in a separate room.

The setting is nonetheless dreamlike. Airy sheers, touches of gold and fuchsia, moucharabiehs… Oriental accents and views of the Mediterranean make these rooms really cosy.

For lovers of wide-open spaces, don’t hesitate to opt for the 210-square-meter Miramar Suite, one floor below, or the 170-square-meter villa, nestled among oleanders and umbrella pines. It has three bedrooms.

Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa - Restaurants

At the head of the Tiara hotel kitchens? Alain Montigny, named Meilleur Ouvrier de France and Michelin-star chef for L’Or Bleu, the gourmet restaurant at the neighboring Tiara Yaktsa. As the restaurant was only open from Wednesday to Saturday, I unfortunately couldn’t try it out, but I did enjoy myself at MoYa, the Miramar’s waterside restaurant, open from lunch to dinner.

I enjoyed everything, from the panoramic view and friendly service to the extensive menu. There are very few vegan or vegetarian options, but if you inform the chef of any restrictions, he’ll tailor a meal to suit.

For dinner, we opted for the chef’s menu at 79 euros, where we were served snacks, starter, main course and dessert. And since I’d mentioned I was a vegetarian beforehand, the chef prepared special dishes for me. On the menu? Tomato pancerotto, vegetable ravioli, risotto with homemade pesto and basil oil and yuzu cheesecake. A real treat.

Breakfast is served upstairs, near reception. And the breakfast room is as tasty as the breakfast itself. There are oriental touches here too, with wood ornaments, velvet armchairs and shades of beige, fuchsia and blue. The ideal place to sip a coffee while gazing out at the sea from the large windows.

We filled our plates at the buffet, where pastries, fresh breads, jams and other delicacies were piled high. And as if hunger were insatiable, we didn’t hesitate to order free hot dishes.

The chef offers a variety of eggs (poached, fried, scrambled or as an omelette) with different fillings, from mushrooms and veal sausage to turkey bacon, grated Emmental cheese and herbs, as well as porridge, pancakes and crepes (with real maple syrup!). A foodie’s dream.

Swimming pool and beach

In addition to a private beach, the Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa boasts a heated swimming pool on the ground floor, as well as terraced gardens dotted with sun loungers and beach beds, from which you can gaze out over the sea and bask in the Côte d’Azur sunshine.

Petit déjeuner au Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa


Among the treasures of this seaside hotel is the Sothys spa. Spread over two levels, it features a steam room and sauna, as well as four treatment cabins, one of which is a double. Scrubs, massages, facials and anti-aging treatments… The options for pampering yourself are numerous.

To enjoy the spa, prior reservation is required. It is, of course, free of charge for hotel guests, allowing them to enjoy the facilities in complete privacy.

As we visited the hotel in low season, we were able to book a one-hour slot in the morning and enjoy the space to ourselves. In high season, you should certainly think about booking a little further in advance. But if that’s the price you have to pay for a private wellness area, it’s a bargain.


The Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa’s facilities are complemented not only by a gym, but also by outdoor tennis courts. These are available on reservation. You can even book private lessons.

Around the hotel

Saint-Tropez, Cannes, Nice, Monaco. These cities that everyone knows and loves are less than an hour and a half from Théoule-sur-Mer. For those wishing to explore the Côte d’Azur, the Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa is the ideal base.

Those who want to spend a few days away from the hustle and bustle of some of France’s busiest cities will also be delighted. Because of its more isolated location, it lends itself perfectly to relaxation. And the site has everything you need to never want to leave: a private beach, heated pool, tennis courts, wellness area and extensive gardens. In high season, you can even rent boats and kayaks.

Hikers will also find plenty to do here, as many of the hikes on the Estérel massif start not far from the hotel.

Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa in France - Overall impression

Overlooking the Mediterranean at Théoule-sur-Mer, the Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel & Spa is a truly intimate setting, far from the crowds that dot the streets of Cannes and Saint-Tropez. A warm welcome and friendly service characterize the experience right from the start. It feels like home, even though home is a world away. The rooms, though slightly narrow, offer a dreamlike decor, blending oriental touches with Mediterranean accents, and offer a breathtaking view of the deep blue sea.

For lovers of farniente, the Tiara Miramar is the perfect place to hide away for a few days.
