Best 4 luxury hotels in Val Thorens
These are the Val Thorens hotels that stand out from the rest thanks to their top-range facilities and services:
1. Pashmina Hotel
What makes the Pashmina Hotel different from the other luxury hotels in Val Thorens is the chance to sleep in an Igloo Pod on its rooftop, with only the stars above your head. Other than that, the hotel offers all the five-star amenities you can think of including an in-house ski rental service and direct access to the slopes from the ski room.
2. Koh-I Nor Hotel
Named after a huge diamond currently part of the British Royal Family's crown, Koh-I Nor means "Mountain of Light" in Persian, and that's exactly what the hotel's designers have tried to recreate. Perched upon Val Thorens' heights, the building is bathed in light.
3. Altapura Hotel
Altapura Hotel is more of a boutique-style gem. Located right on the slopes, the hotel's decor is clean and minimalistic, creating an Alpine cocooning space. This is a good choice for families as it has a children's area, interconnecting rooms and even a dedicated kid's concierge.
4. Fitz Roy Hotel
A contemporary retreat, the Fitz Roy Hotel embodies the cosiness and warmth one expects from an Alpine refuge, from the library with a log fire to the slope-facing terrace. When staying here, you'll help to support Snow-Camp, a charity that aims to change the lives of young people from underprivileged inner-city backgrounds through skiing and snowboarding.
