The best new ski hotels opening this season

Le Coucou, Meribel

This brand new 5* hotel is the finest offering in Meribel. Situated right on the slopes – perfect for ski in/ski out access – Le Coucou is perched on the heights of Belvedere, close to Rond Point and overlooking the entire valley. With only 55 rooms, including 39 suites, the emphasis here is on service. The hotel boasts two restaurants, a spa and an indoor and outdoor pool. They also do accept children but with the Baby Club and Teen Club, they’ll be unlikely to bother your stay! Nestled in a charming wooden chalet, the hotel is set over ten floors in 12,000 square metres of space so you will have the utmost privacy in this exclusive hotel. Head back to the bar after a day’s skiing for warm crepes and cocktails at the bar or enjoy a cigar in the Fumoir watching sports in peace, before indulging in a sumptuous dinner at BeefBar or the Italian restaurant serves specialities from Tuscany.

Airelles Mademoiselle, Val d’Isere

Welcoming its first guests on 19th December 2019, Airelles Mademoiselle is the latest offering for the luxury hotel collection which already includes Les Airelles in Courchevel and La Bastide in Gordes.

Lefay Resort & Spa, Dolomites


There are plenty of reasons to visit the Dolomites. Declared a ‘World Heritage Site’ by UNESCO, this is a skiers dream. We’ve been waiting for a design hotel in the Dolomites and finally, we have one. Introducing Lefay Resort & Spa, a sleek all-suite retreat with jaw-dropping mountain views. Rooms feature local materials so the feeling is one of light and space. Mounted fireplaces, freestanding bathtubs and mountain views make these some of the most exciting new hotel rooms in the ski market. But it’s the spa where this hotel really comes into its own. Boasting an indoor / outdoor pool, an indoor sports pool, a large whirlpool and a salt-water lake with salt grotto, you could spend your entire holiday holed up in here whilst taking in the views below. There is also a 24-hour fitness centre. In the summer, take your pick from one of the two excellent golf courses located just minutes from the resort or explore the local area on horses or bikes.
