Overview: hotel description: Hotel Koh-I Nor description

The stunning Koh-I Nor is quite literally the height of luxury in Val Thorens – at 2,364m, it’s the highest 5-star hotel in Europe. The hotel is named for the 105-carat diamond set into the crown of Queen Elizabeth, and means ‘Mountain of Light’ in Persian.

The architects certainly took this title to heart – huge windows are the common theme throughout the hotel, letting in streams of natural light and allowing for the most amazing mountain views. The hotel is completed to an exceptionally high standard, with the perfect balance between style, luxury and comfort. Each of the 63 rooms is beautifully cosy with modern touches like free WiFi and a Nespresso coffee maker – not to mention a spacious private balcony.

Mealtimes are a real highlight at the Koh-I Nor. You’ll have the choice of three top-class restaurants – enjoy a superb 5-course meal in L’Atelier d’Eric, or swap this for a credit towards a meal in the fantastic Le Diamant Noir restaurant, run by Michelin-starred chef Eric Samson, or La Cave restaurant. In the evenings, curl up in front of the fire in the bar, or sit out on the panoramic terrace and soak up the views.

If you’re after some proper pampering, spend some time in the beautiful spa. It’s got two swimming pools, a hot tub, sauna, hammam, salt wall, ice fountain, experience showers and relaxation zone, plus a full menu of treatments and massages.

Families are also well looked after at the Koh-I Nor. Kids will love the games rooms and can choose from dedicated menus in the restaurants and bar. For infants, there’s a pre-bookable Baby Pack with all the equipment you need.

If you do manage to tear yourself away from the comforts of the hotel, you’ll step right out onto the slopes – the Koh-I Nor is ski-in, ski-out.

At the summit of the largest ski area in the world and bordering the Vanoise National Park, this is a spectacular place to ski and board. Beginners are well catered for on nursery slopes by the Rond Point des Pistes, where the magic carpets often don't require a lift pass. Kids will love the Junior Park, while the Musaraigne and Campagnols runs in the beginner's area and the new Deux Combes green are perfect to practice on.

The après ski here easily rivals other top resorts in the Alps. If you haven't already had the Folie Douce experience, head just under the Plein Sud lift where the "dancefloor on top of the world" is heaving from 3 pm. Another place to party is Bar 360 at the end of the blue Moraine run, which always has live music and cheaper drinks.

We were initially concerned about a few poor reviews we'd seen, but we really couldn’t fault the hotel. The staff even helped to put our skis on in the morning for us! Quite a small hotel, which we loved, and the staff were very good. There was always a shuttle car outside ready for you, which would take you anywhere that you wanted to go. Reception staff were great, they sorted any issues straight away - we hadn't had our room cleaned on one of the days and the staff immediately sorted it out, nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was good, but the main hotel restaurant got a bit samey towards the end of the week for me - they changed one or two options daily for the "dish of the day" but if you didn't want these options, then the rest of the choices were the same for the week. The ski access was very easy, the access was really good. Coming down on the blue run (plein sud) we skied right into the hotel, it was really easy. During our stay we booked into the Cave restaurant - the food was really good and at times we felt there was a bit too much food (not a bad problem to have)!
