Koh-I Nor is the name of a 105.6-carat diamond currently mounted on the British Royal Family crown and exhibited at the Tower of London. In Persian, Koh-I Nor means “Mountain of Light” and certainly the architect has successfully transposed the theme of light throughout his design of the hotel, with natural light omnipresent in guest rooms and public areas. Recommended equally for couples and families.
Facilities at the Koh-I Nor include:
Guests have a choice of 3 outstanding restaurants: the traditional or semi-gastronomic Atelier d’Eric, serving a superb 5 course half board dinner and à la carte; the gastronomic restaurant, the Diamant Noir, serves à la carte with specialties based on truffles, as well as an à la carte the La Cave specialises in local Savoyard fare (one dinner per week at the Diamant Noir and La Cave is included in the half-board package for all 7-night minimum stays except on New Year’s week); children’s menus are available.
The Lounge Bar has a musical and relaxed atmosphere and is cosy and calm. In the evening, it's livelier but still feels like a lounge. Each evening from 6:30 pm, you can relax yourself with live music. Sébastien Didyme, the resident pianist, has concocted a musical program with contemporary and jazzy sounds, many influences according to the guests and the musicians invited to accompany your evenings at the Lounge Bar. You are cordially invited to sample cocktails and other tasty nectars that our head bartender Geoffroy has dreamed up and let yourself be carried by the sweet rythm of the piano/voice. There is also a wide selection of pure malt and single malt whiskies, liquors, and prestigious spirits. There is also a wonderful panorama with snowy mountains.
