An exceptional course in a palace on the Côte d'Azur
Welcome to the French Riviera. At the tip of Cap d'Antibes, halfway between Cannes and Nice, the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc has dominated the Mediterranean since 1870. A Palace steeped in history that the biggest internationals have adopted. From Ernest Hemingway to Marlene Dietrich, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Mick Jagger, Steven Spielberg, Kirk Douglas, Sharon Stone, Madonna or Robert De Niro.
It is here that Prisca Boodhoo does her internship at the end of her first year of Bachelor's degree at the Luxury Hotelschool, as part of the joint program with EHL Hospitality Business School “VET by EHL”. “To live this first professional experience, it was important to me to join a prestigious establishment outside Paris. I am not disappointed because the environment is unique, combining luxury and elegance.”
As early as April, when she joined the room service department for the reopening of the establishment, Prisca helped support the hotel's strong activity. “After training on processes and standards, the (multicultural) teams integrated me very well, the butler being very understanding and benevolent. For example, on the occasion of the Cannes Film Festival and the AmfAR Gala held at the Eden-Roc, I had the opportunity to take care of the artists' dressing room.”
“What I particularly like is the constant contact we have with the kitchens and the housekeeping. It's very rewarding. We operate in an establishment where communication is constant and where management is very present, involved in the conduct of the activity.”
During this internship, Prisca also benefited from one of the hotel's continuing education programmes: the Palace Attitude. “It makes the link with the courses we have within our hotel school, the Luxury Hotelschool, which prepares us well for this universe of excellence. The posture, the interpersonal skills, the language to adopt when addressing customers... The requirement is equal to the prestige of the Palace.”
