Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc Celebrates a Hundred Years
of Glamour at the Eden-Roc Pavilion

The famous Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc,on the French Riviera,is proud to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Eden-Roc Pavilion and its famous seawater swimming pool. 
Renowned as the ultimate ‘see and be seen’ celebrity hotspot of the Cote d’Azur, the Eden-Roc Pavilion and the adjacent Eden-Roc Restaurant will be hosting some of the most glamorous events of the Riviera’s Summer Season, including two ultra-gourmet Gala Dinners presided over by Michelin-starred chefs and award-winning sommeliers.  
The Eden-Roc Pavilion was created in 1914 when a sea-water pool was hollowed out of the basalt rock below the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. This landmark pool grew in fame in the 1950s and 1960s when it bore witness to the ‘landing’ of the world’s elite in an eclectic parade from the Kennedy family,to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor,to Marlene Dietrich, F. Scott Fitzgerald,and Ernest Hemingway. 
Today, the Eden-Roc Pavilion is still at the centre of thE French Riviera’s buzzing social scene, where Hollywood film stars can be seen rubbing shoulders with European royalty and the world’s glitterati.
The Eden-Roc Pavilion will celebrate the launch of its 100th Summer Season with a Gala Dinner on 9th May 2014, just a few days before the Cannes Film Festival. The Gala Dinner has been developed as a journey through time that will retrace the gastronomic highlights of the last 100 yearsand bring back to life the men and women that marked the hotel’s history.
