Great ladies inspired the Muse Hôtel De Luxe, the first of YTL Hotel's global expansion, opening in Saint-Tropez, France this week. The new hotel is comprised of 15 suites, 10 with pools, most overlooking the terraced gardens. Each suite is named after one of the muses the hotel has been dedicated to such as 'Edith', after Edith Piaf, 'Catherine', after Catherine Deneuve and 'Lauren' after Lauren Bacall. The suites have their own decor but each has cool stone floors and mamorino wall finishes. Suites have oversized showers and plasma screen televisions. The guest services include Bentley shuttles to the beaches and sun-butlers to apply sunscreen.The hotel includes the restaurant 'M', inspired by the Slow Food philosophy, where executive chef Nicolas Le Tourmelin and consultant chef Clement Bruno of Chez Bruno preside over an exclusive truffle menu. The menu also offers such tempting fare as Royal King Crab Thermidor style, Red Mullet Tart with Aubergine Caviar and Baby Mozzarella, Scottish Beef 'Aberdeen Angus' Fillet with Red Wine Reduction and Sea Bass Baked in a Crust of Salt or Flambéed with Thyme. The bar at Muse has views over the sunken pool and gardens.
