Designed by the Capezzone family and nestled in the most desirable location of the French Alps favourite skiing destination of Courchevel, Le K2 Djola boasts lounges offering breathtaking views over the valley. The hotel features a range of fitness equipment and a leisure area with a steam bath to complement its modest but cosy 22 rooms and two suites. Just a stone’s throw from some of the best pistes in the region, this newly launched property has an architectural style and spirit inscribed in a pure Alpine tradition.


Named Hotel of the Year 2017 by GaultMillau, The Chedi Andermatt is seated in a quiet area of the largest village in the Ursern Valley. Amidst the off-piste slopes of the Gemsstock mountain, the property combines traditional Swiss hospitality with Asian elegance. A sprawling 2,400-square-metre wellness and spa area, featuring a hot tub, a steam bath and a sauna is the perfect place to unwind after a day on the snow. Boasting Switzerland’s one and only sake sommelier, Arman Jafri, get some much needed warmth with a special après-ski tipple in front of one of the hotel’s many roaring log fires.


More Alpine chalet than cosmopolitan hotel, the Four Season Megève is the first European mountain destination for the celebrated luxury property brand. Most of its 14 suites feature a fireplace and balcony, while the hotel itself has bold interiors with huge picture windows from which to enjoy inspiring mountain views. The two-Michelin starred restaurant Le 1920, 18-hole Mont d Arbois Golf Course, and the largest spa and kids’ and teens’ facilities in the region, make this property the ideal destination for families, friends and couples who appreciate premium quality. It is also the only hotel in Megève with its own in-house Ski Valet and Ski Concierge service.


Praise doesn’t come much higher than being voted the World’s Best Ski Hotel 2016 by 1.6 million voters who are professionals working within the ski industry and ski tourism. But take a closer look at what the hotel offers and you can begin to understand the accolade. The Verbier 4 Vallées is the largest ski domain on Swiss soil, boasting groomed slopes and pistes for all levels and is just steps from the hotel at the Medran Gondola. The open-air terrace at the W Living Room is populated by red leather sofas, hanging bubble seats with a scenic Alpine backdrop. Enjoy a selection of whiskeys, cognacs, and Armagnacs paired with a cigar and a savoury snack as you soak up the sounds of the resident DJ in the evening.


Located in the exclusive Jardin Alpin in Courchevel 1850 at the very top of the former Olympic ski jump, L’Apogée Couchevel is the ultimate place to stay in Alpine luxury. With some of the finest views in the area as well as a prime ski-in and ski-out position, this ski sanctuary has plenty to tempt you. The accommodation comprises a selection of 53 spacious rooms and suites, decorated in a warm, Alpine style. There is also a four bedroom penthouse covering the entire top floor of the hotel, and two exclusive five bedroom chalets. The spa, including a sauna, steam room, large pool and gym is the perfect place to unwind after a long day on the slopes, whilst the little ones let of steam in the kid’s club. Part of the Oetker Collection, L’Apogée is the perfect choice for those who value service, style and sophistication. As you’d expect, the combination of great food, chic surroundings and exclusive accommodation attracts a fabulous crowd.
