Le Byblos Review

Forget five stars: this toy Mediterranean village grouped around courtyards landscaped with palms, olive trees, and lavender and guest rooms à la provençale but ultra-modern in comfort has obtained "Palace" classification. When you can't tear yourself away from the piscine, indulge in a goat cheese samosa or Byblos burger at B., the poolside restaurant open all day. Ducasse's Rivea at Byblos (formerly known as Spoon), open for dinner only, has nailed the exact size of portions necessary to satisfy the senses. As evening falls, all head to the hotel's Caves du Roy—a kitsch disco extravaganza where squillionaires order €35,000 Methuselahs (6-liter bottles) of champagne, and keep them coming. Paparazzi-free, it's virtually impossible to get in unless you arrive early or reserve a table in advance.
