We had our annual ski holiday in March this year and although we have been to Val Thorens many times, this is the first time we have stayed at the Altapura. The hotel is in an ideal situation on the slopes and is only a few minutes walk to the resort centre. We are very impressed with the hotel overall,... More

This was the second time we have stayed here and the hotel was excellent as ever. A really stylish hotel with very comfortable beds, however it would be good to have a choice of pillows. The spa was superb and the pool great after a day on the slopes. Food in all restaurants is of a high standard with many... More

Great treatments, Great Spa. Pricey drinks for Val T but thats what you expect in a 5* Hotel. We were not staying here, just having treatments and they were all great. Hotel is superbly kitted out however no balconys in the rooms! would have been dissapointed if I had been staying purely for the lack of balcony no other reason.... More

We were in Duplex room (N°502) that is perfect with 2 kids: 2 beds in the living room for kids and parental suite on the 1st floor. The room is very nice, modern and incredibly quiet with a nice direct view on the slopes. The Buffet and Laiterie restaurants are at the top (good service and good food). The concierges... More

Well…that was the ski conditions. To be expected in April. Freeze/thaw. Like skiing on toast 1st thing am, perfect circa 10-12 as you got some traction…then, like soup in the afternoon. I'was like Barbados - blue skies and warm sun; long boozy lunches, then back to the ranch at 4pm for some nod. The Altapura was super. Faultless. Hip, slope-side,... More

Just returned from a week in Val Thorens, and the Altapura really lived up to expectations. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed , and nothing was too much trouble. The style was very modern with nice alpine touches. Our adjacent rooms were certainly large enough, and very luxuriously fitted including separate bath and walk in showers. We overlooked... More

This was absolutely the best wintersport experience i ever had. The hotel is situated directly on the slopes, so we could enjoy our afternoon cocktail right after our ski-session. The interior is very cozy and warm, our room and especially our bed was super comfortable. We stayed with our family in a duplex room, which was perfect for our kids... More

Altapura is one of the few 5 stars hotels in Val Thorens, located in the middle of the ski slopes. The hotel is very nicely decorated in a contemporary style and it has all amenities expected from such an hotel: spa with swimming pool, good breakfast, very useful concierge, ski shop, 3 restaurants. However, rooms are extremely small (despite taking... More

What a fabulous hotel. We were ski-holidaying with friends in Europe we hadn't travelled with since Whistler so we felt there was quite a bit to live up to as Val T was our idea.
