Marseille Luxury Hotels

Best areas in Marseille for luxury hotels

Star-studded groups of travelers straight out of Cannes and fashionistas fresh from the golden beaches of Saint Tropez all converge on Marseille's classy array of luxury hotels throughout the year. Why not joint them with a jaunt to the terrace-topped residences that line the ancient roadways and jetties of Vieux Port? Or, take a room in Pharo, where the poolsides cascade down to the pebbly coves of the Med. Another option is the sun-splashed Corniche, where the city soon gives way to rugged fjords and hidden beaches.

Top luxury hotels in Marseille

Marseille's grand InterContinental Hotel Dieu bursts forth from the streets of Belsunce in a glorious medley of French Rococo and European Baroque. And the inside is just as grand as the out, with each room imbued with fine Provencal linens, standalone bathtubs, and an on-site spa facility. Then come the sumptuous breakfast offerings – crunchy baguettes, croissants, French cheeses – of the Mercure Marseille Centre Vieux Port, not to mention a prime location close to Vieux Port. The Pullman Marseille, meanwhile, is a luxurious pool-dotted complex with huge guestrooms, panoramic windows, and saunas.

Where to find the best fine dining in Marseille

Make for the rugged cliffs and coastal paths of well-to-do Edoume to enjoy a couple of Michelin stars with your evening meal. You'll get masterful bouillabaisse broths, slow-roasted pork dishes, meticulously arranged veal tartare, and other refined staples. Alternatively, make for La Joliette, where experimental eateries are now fusing haute Provencal cooking with the spices of North Africa, or the area of Vieux Port itself, which has some highly-acclaimed seafood kitchens with catches of the day fresh from the fishing boats.

The most unique things to do in Marseille

For a flavor of the Marseille that's known to the jet setters, why not take to the waters on a private yacht charter and explore all the nooks and crannies of the Cote d'Azur? You could sail that glistening 40-footer across to the soaring bulwarks of the Chateau d'If, hit empty beaches between the calanques, or even go as far as sun-kissed Porquerolles, where the beaches are perfect white powder and the sea a shimmering turquoise blue. Back in the city itself and you could flit between the cocktail joints of the Vallon des Auffes and Corniche, or opt for an evening of tasting menus in one of the city's many celebrity kitchens. Other tour operators will organize guided bike circuits of the Provencal lavender fields, or in-depth gastronomic journeys with wine tasting through ancient neighborhoods like Panier and Vieux Port.

Best ways to get around Marseille

Limousines and private chauffeured vehicles will be easy to hire for the duration of your stay in Marseille – this is the French Riviera after all. However, it's worth remembering that the narrow alleys and streets of this city aren't the best for getting around by car. It might be better to opt for taxis whenever you need a ride. There are some reputable local firms, and Uber operates here to boot. For getting around the coast and the Corniche area, consider a private charter on a yacht.
