Our favourite rooms
No disrespect to village views, but the slope-side rooms have a pinch of extra magic out of the window. Request a south-facing Junior Suite, ideally one with a fireplace-toting upstairs living room.
The subterranean pool is sculpted out of the mountainside, and large enough to warm-down with a few lengths after a day on the slopes.
Your muscles will be relieved at the sight of the Turkish bath and Nordic sauna, which are open to all guests from 10am until 8pm daily. For bespoke massages and wrinkle-busting beauty treatments, book in a session at the Carita spa.
Among all those woollies and base layers, don’t forget some summer gear: swim kit, sunnies, and sunscreen.
The common areas are wheelchair friendly, and there are dedicated rooms with adapted bathrooms for wheelchair users, accessible by lift.
Pets of all shapes and sizes can join you for €25 a night. See more pet-friendly hotels in Val Thorens.
All ages are welcome. A dozen of the rooms are interconnecting; some can fit an extra bed, and every Privilege room has a fold-out sofa bed. Val Thorens is well equipped with beginner slopes and junior ski schools.
Toddlers and up – if they can walk, they can ski.
If there’s a whole clan of you, make the top floor your own – there’s a Suite, Privilege room and two Confort rooms up there, sleeping up to 12 in total. Smaller families can get that chalet vibe with a duplex Junior Suite, which has two bedrooms.
Alpine apprentices can sign up for ski school, or make new friends at the kids club in the village.
It’s really designed for splash-time, but it’s heated and primed for a paddle.
No need to pack
Games – there are board games and puzzles in the cosy hotel lounge.
