A room with more than just a view... The Missoni Home Suite at the Byblos Hotel, Saint-Tropez
If you’re a Missoni enthusiast a visit to Hotel Byblos in St Tropez is a must.
The iconic five-star hotel partnered with Missoni Home in honour of its 50th anniversary in 2017. Inspired by the seaside harmonies of colour of Saint-Tropez and the pastel facades of the Hotel Byblos, Rosita Missoni explored an entire range of colour combinations to bring her own personal touch to the property and to make guests feel ‘at home, away from home.’
Missoni Home redesigned the largest suite of the Byblos - the Riviera suite - which was hired out by Mick and Bianca Jagger for their wedding night in the summer of 1971. The Missoni Home Suite is the most luxurious and spacious suite (180 square meters) at Hotel Byblos and is located in the heart of the hotel overlooking the swimming pool.
It has now been literally transformed by the touch of Missoni Home decked out in the iconic items that so characterize the Missoni Home brand from jewel coloured bedlinen to blinds. The result is elegant comfort that so perfectly illustrates ‘la Dolce Vita’ or the ‘good life’, blending rich colours with silk and cotton materials. This is a suite overflowing with colour.
