What is a genuine luxury ski hotel?

With the criteria for star-ratings varying from nation to nation, don’t just take a 5* ranking at its word ― rely instead on globally-recognised awards, Michelin merits and glowing reviews, which our luxury hotels have in spades.

Featuring the fathers of winter tourism and some of the most impressive architecture in the mountains, you’ll know a luxury ski hotel when you see one – and find further clues within: beaming staff at every corner, a restaurant that’s fully-booked night after night, and a substantial number of guests who’ve come just for the wellness facilities. Coming top of their class, the best luxury hotels in the mountains do all this and more.

Food & Drink in Luxury Ski Hotels

High quality fare is something of a given in 5-star hotels, with many in our collection housing the best restaurants for miles. Don’t just take our word for it― most have been awarded Gault&Millau toques or Michelin stars, medals of their sterling standards of cuisine. Read up on the very best gourmet hotels here.

For a little bonus luxury, it’s not uncommon for our leading hotels to have their own sommelier who’ll hunt down the best bottle for every dish. Should you fancy a break from a formal dress code and unbelievably fine dining, room service comes as standard with most 5 star properties. More about luxury ski hotel dining and libations.

Luxury Ski Hotel Transfers

While a luxury hotel booking covers the main component of your stay, ensure a smooth and comfortable transition by asking us about adding helicopter transfers, private road transfers or a private jet charter to your booking for a luxury experience from door to door.

Luxury Ski Hotel Services

From the moment you’re greeted at the entrance, you can expect an exceedingly high level of service in our luxury hotels. Besides complimentary toiletries, daily cleaning and a nightly turndown service, think: 24-hour receptions, multilingual staff, a concierge and members of staff who‘ll go well beyond the call of 5* service.

Many hotels will even employ a ski valet to see you from hotel to piste, while others roll out childcare services, like kids clubs, ski lessons and evening child-minding. If your hotel has a spa (and most do), you’ll find in-house therapists to ease your aches and spa managers to oversee all pampering.

Luxury Ski Hotel Facilities

Often attracting visitors in their own right, the wellness amenities found in luxury ski hotels are among the finest known to man. In these realms of relaxation, swimming pools, Jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms and on site therapists are just a few ways of reaching new levels of rest.

If you ever manage to change out of your robe, you’ll often also find the likes of glitzy cocktail and piano bars, humidified cigar lounges, or for the younger (at heart) a cinema or games room. As these are among the best of the best, don’t be surprised if your hotel also has its own climbing wall, gallery or museum…
