Eco Luxury in France

Hotel Sezz Pool

We love to hear that luxury hotels like the Hotel Sezz Saint-Tropez are taking environmentalism seriously. Thanks to the resort’s attention to water conservation, recycling, and energy-saving initiatives, guests can relax in guilt-free bliss in the knowledge that their ecological footprint is kept to a minimum. At the same time they can enjoy all the services and amenities of a luxury resort.

The passion for environmentalism is shown in the planning process. Interior designer Christophe Pillet, landscape architect Christophe Ponceau and hotelier Shahé Kalaidjian harmoniously integrated the hotel into the lush surrounding nature and preserved nearly all existing trees on the site. “The luxury at Hotel Sezz Saint-Tropez is not about the usual bling bling you might expect at the Côte d’Azur. It’s about the unique natural settings of this resort. From the start our goal was to respect and preserve the surrounding nature, and to create a hotel that fits perfectly with it,” says Kalaidjian.

In order to optimize air circulation, the bungalows and cocoons were built with extra thick walls and the windows with integrated filters that absorb ultraviolet rays. Numerous CO2 absorbing eucalyptus trees in the parking lot ensure the air is fresh and clean. The entire resort is equipped with energy saving lamps and the rooms with flat screen LED TVs. Moreover, all employees were trained in environmental matters. The products at Spa Sezz by Payot are made with primarily natural ingredients like plants and minerals. In cooperation with the Lycée Technique Don Bosco in Nice, Hotel Sezz Saint-Tropez is currently developing a program for soap recycling. All used soaps from the hotel will be collected and regularly sent to the school where students learn how to recycle them.

A bit about the hotel
Located a few minutes outside Saint-Tropez, the hotel is not only a hideaway for nature lovers but also a place for peace seekers. With laurels, pines, palms and eucalyptus trees Ponceau has created the epitome of a Mediterranean garden. Like in a small Provencal village, the 37 ground-floor rooms, suites and villas are grouped around the heart of the hotel: the azure pool. Here, guests can relax and unwind on the lounge chairs and sunbeds that Christophe Pillet created. The nearest beach and the center of Saint-Tropez can easily be reached with the bikes that the hotel offers. Hotel Sezz Saint-Tropez also features a gourmet restaurant Colette headed by Pierre Gagnaire, the recently completed Spa Sezz by Payot as well as a Dom Pérignon Champagne Bar.
