Altapura Hotel, Val Thorens

Ultra-modern and luxury hotel, the highest 5* hotel in Europe

featured in Hotels

This hotel opened in November 2012. Situated at 2300m, it has been inspired by Nordic design and offers 88 contemporary rooms, all with spectacular views.

It is part of the Sibuet Hotels and Spa portfolio, founded by luxury French hotelier and interior designer, Jocelyne Sibuet. The 1,000sq m (10,800sq ft) Pure Altitude spa has seven treatment rooms and has been designed with the skier in mind, offering a wide selection of treatments dedicated to muscular relaxation, physical preparation and recuperation.

Active ingredients of Edelweiss and other mountain minerals are used in Sibuet Hotels and Spa’s own product brand, Pure Altitude Spa. The relaxation area includes the Nordic Spiral, which alternates dry and humid heat, punctuated by waterfall showers, a tepidarium, snow treatments and culminating in an Igloo. The extremes of temperatures stimulate the blood oxygenation, minimising the aches and pains of a day on the slopes. There is also a heated pool.

The hotel also offers three restaurants serving a mix of haute cuisine, fondues and hearty dishes from the rotisserie. Other adrenaline fuelled activities are also on offer at the hotel, including snow driving, tobogganing on the longest run in Europe, dog sledding, glacier hiking and airboarding. The hotel’s season is from 30th November until 1st May.

The Bar

With three areas to enjoy in this bar you can be sure to find a space that suits your mood. The terrace where you can relax in a sun lounger and have a cup of hot mulled wine at any point during the day, but also the perfect spot to welcome back friends and family who are still on the slopes.

The lounge area where you can get cosy and relax with a roaring fire in a big armchair. Or when the mood takes you there is 'Les Enfants Terribles' where the music starts and the champagne flows!

The Restaurant

A choice of three restaurants in this hotel. A chic mountain-style brasserie, serving classic dishes in a fun and glamorous atmosphere. A buffet and rotisserie restaurant with a mix of fresh and cooked meats, fish and Asian fusion food. Perfect for lunch or dinner. And La Laiterie, a menu full of cheese! What ski trip is complete without a fondue at the end of the day.

  • "The hotel is modern clean in the best possible place for skiing. It's is easy to get back to at lunch time when you have a 4-year-old in your group, have lunch and relax on the sun terrace watching the world ski by. Swimming pool open from 7 am to late is great. The room we had was brilliant the views were magnificent, beds were comfortable, bathroom was also spacious. The staff were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, this is a relaxed comfortable home from home that you can actually ski out of and back to." - Trip Advisor
  • "Just returned from a week in Val Thorens, and the Altapura really lived up to expectations. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed , and nothing was too much trouble. The style was very modern with nice alpine touches. Our adjacent rooms were certainly large enough, and very luxuriously fitted including separate bath and walk in showers. We overlooked the patio and pool area, and were pleased how quiet it was. The location is excellent right on the slopes, genuinely ski in/ski out." - Trip Advisor
