Between multi-ethnicity and multi-culturalism, the 3.14 Hotel is a global tour of colours, materials, scents, and comfort.
Without a doubt, the 3.14 Hotel is a real revolution.
The 3.14 Hotel is located in the centre of Cannes, close to the beginning of Rue d'Antibes, the city's commercial street, and the beach and la Croisette are just a few metres away. For their part, the Palais des Festivals and the train station are just a bit further away (a few hundred meters). You also needn't worry about finding good restaurants, bars, and shops nearby either, as there are numerous establishments in the area surrounding the hotel.
All of the floors have one guest room that has been specially adapted for guests with reduced mobility.
Guests can also use the car park for £26 per day.
Entertainment is frequently organised at the 3.14 Hotel, be it a concert, a DJ come to spin his turntables on the 6th floor terrace, or a clairvoyant stopping by to give you a reading in the sitting room that can be closed off for privacy.
The 3.14 has direct access to a beach, with its turquoise blue sky blending in with the blue of the sea, and its own restaurant where you will find the same Pop Zen ambiance as in the hotel.
Pets are not allowed in the establishment.
A turquoise life-sized cow with a pink muzzle, sculpted silver chairs worthy of maharajas, a Rococo-style Murano fountain, a diamond-encrusted slate floor, and multi-coloured neon lights on the ceiling: as soon as you enter the lobby you'll see that the 3.14 Hotel welcomes you to Bollywood.
This large area with two reception desks facing each other is an entrance into the material world of the 3.14 Hotel. There are no secrets here, as the lobby immediately lets guests know what they're in for!
Originating from the travelling spirit of Karine Ellena-Partouche and her sister Alexandra, an interior architect, the goal of the 3.14 Hotel is to take guests on a journey around the world. It goes without saying that those who like comfort they can rely on should give this hotel a miss.
The visit of the colourful Bollywood studios continues into the library lounge area that blends turquoise walls and velvet armchairs with a vibrant red rug and purple bench seats, which are also covered with velvet. The shapes, materials, mix of colours and textures... everything here puzzles, amuses, and gives guests the urge to sit and relax a little. Behind the heavy wooden doors imported from India you will find a large reception room with an imposing statue of Ganesh and a private little lounge with subdued lighting, its walls painted with Indian scenes.
Going a little further, you will reach the Cink. With its Murano glassware, garden-like terrace, multi-faceted tables, and lighting that changes throughout the day, the Cink is the hotel's restaurant, where Mario d'Orio is the chef.
The visit continues on the 6th floor, with the well-being centre. This spot, the 3.14 Cocoon, is a true top quality haven of peace. First there is the massage, Turkish baths, and jacuzzi area, once again decorated in a turquoise blue colour along with beige and brown to create a feeling of serenity. The magic then continues onto the roof, with a swimming pool just by the edge, surrounded by various rocks and greenery and offering magnificent views of the sea.
Five storeys, five continents, five styles, and thus almost five hotels. The concept behind the 3.14 Hotel is simple: each storey depicts a universe representative of one of the five continents and the least we can say is that this idea works.
First stop, the European continent, a storey that will definitely please couples in love. A boudoir, slightly feminine atmosphere can be felt in the corridor, which is bathed in red lights and has wallpaper that rather looks like pink padded walls. As for the rooms, there's no doubt about it, your nights will definitely be romantic! Between the four-poster bed, the small velvet cushions, and the curtains, everything is pink, red, refined and sensual. Only the bathroom has managed to stay all white (in the standard rooms). Both refined and stylish, it is very bright and pleasant and features parquet flooring.
The romanticism continues with the African storey, where the rooms are in a style reminiscent of 'A Thousand and One Nights'. Decorated in abundant shades of purple, pink and brown, these rooms play with colours and materials. They also have four-poster beds, as well as furniture that is both ethnic and modern, and highlighted by various lighting effects.
The atmosphere becomes more Zen with the Oceania storey, where the colours are softer and more relaxing. Beige and wicker are the materials of choice in this extremely serene atmosphere. The four-poster bed stands in a cocoon-like setting where all of the objects are made of light wood and feature rounded shapes. All of the wicker furniture is generously sized.
It is rare to see the American continent the way the decorators here have portrayed it. The Pop Art period was the inspiration behind this storey. After the visual calm of the Oceania storey, here we are back into fully-fledged colour! This starts as soon as you step into the hallway, with yellow walls displaying geometric patterns from the psychedelic era in either green or pink, and chair seats in a softer shade of pink. The explosion of colours only gets more intense once you push open the doors to the guest rooms. Turquoise walls, green, orange and purple bedspreads and curtains, a small pink side table, and a multi-coloured stuffed animal give the room a sort of child- and dream-like feel (sort of like an extreme version of Alice in Wonderland). All in all, it's pretty, cheerful, playful and bright.
Finally, the Asia storey is all about a time between the sobriety of the Oceania, the colourful fury of the Americas, and the intense crimson of Europe. Closest to the Japanese aesthetic, the rooms on this floor display a skilful mix of calm, serenity (represented by the wood and the white sheets) and energy (represented by the touches of pink across the bed and the decorative elements like the lampshade).
Whatever the storey, the classic rooms (20m²) all offer the same level of comfort and the same amenities: a flat-screen TV, minibar, safe, reversible air-conditioning and a hair-dryer.
On the same level as the lobby and just past the library, the 3.14 Hotel's restaurant, the Cink, offers peaceful surroundings where the shades of dark wood blend in elegantly with the turquoise of the chair seats. This indoor dining room opens onto a terrace reminiscent of Alice's Wonderland. Greenery covers the tables and the materials used are somewhat ephemeral, resulting in little islands of privacy.
Breakfast and dinner (the restaurant is closed for lunch) can both be enjoyed either indoors or outdoors.
The menu created by chef Mario d'Orio boasts Mediterranean-inspired cuisine with spicy and ethnic touches in keeping with organic standards. It's quite the menu, especially since it changes monthly!
