Le Lodge Park
Style Alpine cowboy
Setting Middle of Megève
If Heidi came into money, moved to Megève, and bought a chalet hotel, it might resemble Le Lodge Park: a fur- and leather-lavished snow queen with antler chandeliers, a feather-fringed gourmet restaurant and a spa specializing in mountain-plucked unguents.

Food and drink at Le Lodge Park
Fur, feather-trimmed curtains, wood, horn and leather: the hotel’s unabashed alpine opulence continues in its restaurant, which glitters with candles by night. Big-game and animal-print furnishings add a safari flavour to the mix; white-leather chesterfields, log-adorned ceilings, and vast antler chandeliers keep things quirky. The menu leapfrogs across the globe, spanning the Americas (luxury junk food), Nordic (esoteric and elegantly arctic), the Old Continent (reworked European favourites) and pan-Asian. Tables are dressed in immaculate clotted-cream-coloured linens, so eat tidily.
- Dress code Creature comforts: leather, fur, and sheepskin, dressed up with silks and diamonds at dinner.
- Top table The smaller, semi-circular dining room has a wall of windows – perfect for starry-eyed dinners à deux.
- Last orders Breakfast is served between 7.30am and 11am; lunch is 12 noon ’til 2.30pm; dinner is 7.30pm until 10pm. Tipples are to be had in the bar between 11am and 11pm.
- Room service Order hot dishes to your room during the restaurant’s opening hours; cold options after.
Le Bar Espace Trappeurs looks to New England for its style: all bleached wood, muted forest-and-farmhouse hues, log tables and antlers – many antlers. Stake out one of the chesterfields inside, or snuggle under a fat fur blanket on one of the outside seats. In such a setting, only champagne cocktails are appropriate (though we wouldn’t turn down a frozen vodka shot, either).

Our favourite rooms
Classic and Lodge rooms are cute and cosy, with Ralph Lauren homeware and splashes of tartan; visiting trappers should bed down in the Park Suites, which have brushed-steel chairs, blood-red ostrich leather walls and shaggy fur throws. If, on the other hand, you’re a visiting rock star, the Plentitude Suite has your name on it: designer pieces, hefty boulder fireplace in matt black, princely bed with a curly-hide headboard, Philippe Starck lighting and a sleekly modern stone-tiled bathroom.
Swimwear; Chanel skiwear (and matching goggles); Dolce for dinner.
Have an Alpine-inspired massage or facial in the spa. Ingredients for the treatments are plucked from the mountains; some, like the snow crystals body scrub, are appropriately icy.
