Perched right on the ski piste in Val Thorens, France, Altapura Hotel is one of the most luxurious ski hotels in the world. Altapura is located in Les 3 Valees, an area with over 600km of fantastic pistes. Val Thorens is famous with winter sports enthusiasts for the fact that it is the place in the Alpes where it snows first due to the high altitude and therefore the pistes open very early.
The 5-star boutique hotel is famous for its incredible interior design in Scandinavian style, a combination of stone and wood, with old ski boots and skis used as decoration, hanging from walls and even forming a unique bar. Altapura boasts three restaurants, offering typical regional food, such as the cheeses raclette, gruyere and fondue among many other delicacies.
The swimming pool in the hotel is magical. Swim from the indoor pool directly into the outdoor heated pool and look above you. Through the falling snowflakes you will see the ski lift right above your head as you relax in the warm waters.
There is a special ski room for skiers and snowboarders to hire equipment, all of which is brand new and very modern. Enjoy the privilege to wake up, get out of your room and into the elevator, straight down into the ski room, put your ski boots on, walk outside and find yourself already on the ski piste in one of the most spectacular winter resorts in the world.
