We stayed at the Jiva Hill last february (yes i know, i'm a bit late on that one but they were so good that i still wanted to write that review even a year after !).
We stay there 4 nights, driving from the Luxembourg and meeting a couple of friends from London (flying from nearby Geneva).
We were looking for peaceful ski in the nearby ski resort (15 min drive), quality rooms, gourmet food, excellent service and relaxing atmosphere.
We were delighted.
The ski resort is small but on a short ski break, big enough. It is ideal for less experienced skiers (we were with two) as the resort offer a variety of easy "blue" and "green" slopes. There is also the ski school were you can have the chance to have a private class with the Fabulous Guy Martin (a charismatic former golf professional who turned into a ski and golf teacher).
For more experienced skiers, some quality and fun "red" and "black" slopes are also available (i recommend to go skiing on the Col de la Faucille).
The hotel is situated in the plain looking straight on the Mont Jura (breathtaking view from the rooms !) and also feature a golf. The rooms were spacious and well design. The bathroom was a real delight after a day on the slopes and the quiet nights perfect to restore energy for the next day.
We had a full gastronomic menu with pairing wine at the hotel's restaurant and that was a good call.
As far as I remember, we had a lot of quality food well presented, well cooked, very tasty. The service was very professional and friendly. Cheese plates were a delight (my London friends are still talking about it !!!!). Very good value for the price. I especially recommend to have dinner at the hotel as when we try the "next best restaurant around" it was poor in every way possible.
I've booked a massage provided in the hotel and the woman was very professional, friendly and efficient.
There is also a sauna, jacuzzi and an inside swimming pool that is worth spending some time.
The service from the staff at reception was very friendly and efficient, we really felt at home there.
To conclude, this is really a good place to escape from buzzing ski resort, to relax, enjoy quality time with friends in a nice and cozy environment while still enjoying the mountain and quality ski under the sun !
I will very probably come back to Jiva Hills for some short ski weekend !
