CANNES, FRANCE—As a part of its recent renovations, Hôtel Majestic Barrière launched a cinema-inspired Presidential suite, the Mélodie Suite, which pays tribute to the 1963 classic film Mélodie en Sous-sol (Any Number Can Win), filmed at the hotel, starring French actors Alain Delon and Jean Gabin.
Guests in the Mélodie Suite will enjoy views of the Bay of Cannes, the Lerin Isles and the Esteral massif from the seventh floor of the hotel’s east wing. The 1,076-sq.-ft. rotunda-crowned suite offers a main lounge, two side lounges and two bedrooms with in-suite pink marble bathrooms.
With design accents in various shades of blue, it takes inspiration from the sapphire waters of the Côte d’Azur, according to the hotel. Photos with scenes from the movie are on display throughout, mounted on blue tinted mirrors. The suite features an open layout and crescent shaped floor-to-ceiling bay window.
The Mélodie Suite is the third suite added to the Majestic Hotel collection, along with the Dior Suite and the Majestic Suite.
French interior designer and architect Nathalie Ryan was responsible for the design of the Mélodie Suite. Ryan was the director of architecture at Dior for more than a decade, creating 250 boutiques around the world before setting up her own agency, Kirei Studio. She began working with the Barrière group in 2010, when she created the Dior suite at the Hôtel Majestic Barrière.
