The games venue will add a touch of distinction to the event, as the Hôtel Hermitage is one of the most emblematic hotels in Europe. Set in a palace in Monaco listed as a historic monument, this luxurious five-star hotel features Belle-Époque décor, a winter garden, and a 7,000 m² spa. Among other recognitions, it received the "Best spa in a hotel in Europe" Prix by Villégiature Award in 2016 and the Gold Award in the "Event Hotel of the Year" category by Eventia in 2012.
