Hôtel Le K2, Courchevel 1850, France
Inspired by the Himalayas’ legendary peaks, and in one of Courchevel 1850’s most privileged locations, Le K2 is an exclusive ski-in, ski-out ‘luxury hotel village’ just metres from the Cospillot slope.
Close enough to the centre of Courchevel 1850, yet enjoying highest levels of privacy and comfort, accommodation is spread along the slopes: the spacious rooms and suites ingeniously mix Alpine charm with thoroughly-modern touches, cool grey tones with splashes of red and brilliant high-tech amenities.
And then there are the five to-die-for chalet-suites… think enough bedrooms to accommodate the entire family; staff to take care of every need; an indoor pool complete with home cinema; your own hammam or hot tub, ski room, a lift and large balconies to take in those pristine panoramic views.
Aprés-ski starts at The Goji Spa by La Prairie; at the K2's stylish Lounge Bar 8611, or in the more intimate Winston Klub, before enjoying a gourmet buffet at the Black Pyramid Restaurant or haute cuisine at Kintessence — the K2's crowning glory, awarded its second Michelin star in 2014. Kids meanwhile have access to their own sci-fi-style Kids' Zone with racing car arcade games, video games, simulators, and an interactive dance floor.
