New for the 11/12 ski season, the Altapura opened its doors to re-define the ski experience in Val Thorens. This contemporary hotel combines the latest technology, superb facilities and gourmet cuisine, making it the perfect choice for families, groups and couples.
Set back from the lively resort centre, the 5* Altapura Hotel offers the ultimate ski in-ski out experience. Situated opposite the Plein Sud chair lift at the bottom of the resort, the hotel is surrounded by exceptional scenery and wonderful views of the mountains. The hotel is just a 3 minute walk from the centre of the village although shuttles are provided.
The hotel’s modern Nordic ambiance is highlighted through its dynamic mix of wood and stone decor. Its opulent features which include a majestic granite staircase, Venetian chandeliers, open fires and traditional bookcases, have earned the Altapura its well-deserved nickname of the ‘highest ski palace'.
The hotel’s 88 comfortable bedrooms have been specifically designed to meet the needs of skiers, without having to renounce elegance or refinement. In every room, guests will enjoy mountain views, a high definition TV, on-demand videos, WiFi, an Apple computer, Ipod station and heating cupboard.
In addition to the two indoor lounge bars, the outdoor terrace bar and restaurant faces the summit of Caron and provides an idyllic setting in which to enjoy an après-ski drink as the sun sets over the mountains.
Those needing to revive their aching limbs can do so at the 1000m2 Pure Altitude Spa with its own Igloo and birch forest ambience.
