We stayed in ear;y March 2012 as part of a group of 4 (two couples) at this beautiful hotel which sits next to one of the south facing pistes in to the resort/village. It is a very short walk to the gondola at the bottom of this run so it almost ski in/out.
The spa is beautiful, with a lovely out door pool and hot tub which catch the afternoon sun, and ample heated beds, swimming pool, saunas and steam rooms etc in doors, with a separate nudist area and 'clothed' area, for those wishing to use these facilities.
The staff in the restaurant would delightful, and the food extremely good. The breakfast buffet is fabulous; huge choice, including lots of organic and healthy options as well as pastries, waffles, and hot options. There are also fresh juices of all types, and a machine pressing oranges... or even prosecco should you wish.
Dinner is a lovely formal affair but not stuffy- some people were in jeans, others more dressed up, and either felt comfortable. The 5 course dinner is beautifully presented, and provides lots of choice, whilst offering local specialities.
Our room (one of the newer rooms) was lovely and spacious, and beautifully designed. There are plenty of towels (even a basket of spare towels to take to the spa, although there are more there too) robes, slippers and very nice toiletries. A different chocolate or sweet appeared each night at turn down, and fresh water was provided.
The hotel facilities are super, and all extremely beautifully presented. Our 'deal' included a sleigh ride and a trip to the 'wolf cabin'. We felt the deal was extremely good value, and both the sleigh ride and the trip to the cabin proved to be real high-lights to our trip.
This is a family run hotel, and the family members make a point of running the trip to the 'Wolf cabin' as well as meeting people at dinner. We met other guests who go back to this hotel twice a year; one in summer for the biking/walking, and once in winter for the skiing; I can see just why. TREMENDOUS!
