On the recent staff visit to Tignes, the team were fortunate to stay in the brand new luxury residence, Kalinda Village. Ski Collection's reservations team member, Nicole, shares her thoughts...
Kalinda Village is a new residence in Tignes which was built for last winter
It is an impressive 4* residence located in Tignes 1800. I stayed in apartment 220 on level 3 which was a 3-bedroom apartment sleeping 8. It was very spacious, modern and had a lovely view which over-looked the church. The beds were really comfortable and I slept like a baby! The apartment was a duplex and the best part of the apartment in my opinion was the bedroom on the upper level which our sales manager bagsied!! It had a double size bed with an en-suite bathroom... the perks of being the boss, eh?
The Wi-Fi in the residence worked really well. My phone did not work whilst I was in France so the only way I could get in contact with loved ones at home was via the Wi-Fi. It was really easy to connect and quite fast. I didn’t do any cooking during our stay as we ate out every evening; however the kitchen was fully equipped and even had a dishwasher. Perfect for those who do not wish to have to do the washing up duties whilst on holiday! Plus the cleaning kit even came with a couple of dishwasher tablets - very handy.
Everything is on the doorstep at Kalinda Village. The amenities include a boulangerie (very tasty croissants!), well-stocked Spar convenience store and the ski hire shop Sport 2000.
On the last day we had a chance to explore the swimming pool and spa area which includes adult and children indoor heated swimming pools, Jacuzzis, hammam (steam room) and saunas. The children pool was really cool and had a mini slide and was very inviting for children. A very relaxing morning was had by all the team!
