Tuba Club

What’s the hotel in a nutshell?

Located near the Calanques Natural Park, overlooking a picturesque fishing harbour, this former diving school turned boutique hotel is a hidden gem. Conceptualised by restaurateur Greg Gassa and film producer Fabrice Denizot, and brought to life by interior architect Marion Mailaender, Tuba Club is a stylish retreat that seamlessly blends history with modern charm. Its discreet entrance, adorned with murals by Emmanuelle Luciani, leads to a serene world where the azure blue sea meets minimalistic elegance​​​​.

What are the rooms like?

The hotel’s five rooms, inspired by traditional French fishermen’s huts called cabanons, offer a unique blend of simplicity and character. Each room features wooden elements, sisal flooring and vintage lamps, creating a cosy yet unpretentious atmosphere. The rooms are an ode to soulful minimalism, with a decor influenced by modernist beach huts, showcasing whitewashed walls and white linens, which complement the stunning sea views. In 2023, Tuba Club expanded with three more spacious suites, echoing a 1970s retro-glam style. These suites include shared living spaces, kitchens and private terraces, all maintaining the hotel’s ethos of minimalism and eco-consciousness​​​​.
