For the winter 18-19 season, the former lift station on the Tête de Solaise is being skilfully and lovingly transformed into a brand new luxury 4* hotel – at 2551m, the highest in the French Alps: the Refuge de Solaise is the most exciting hotel development in Val d’Isère this coming winter, and probably one of the most challenging and ambitious in the Tarentaise for many years.
The hotel enjoys a truly unique position, some 800m above the resort, on a sunny plateau with breathtaking 360° views. The Refuge de Solaise is the ultimate ski-in/ski-out hotel, perfect for keen skiers, especially couples – no queuing for the early lift, and certainly no problem being the first to sample the early morning powder!
From the resort, the Refuge de Solaise is accessible only by the Solaise gondola (and evenings are always spent at the hotel); as this lift opens only between 09:00 and 16:30, we strongly advise arrival in resort by early-mid afternoon.
Facilities here include a reception; panoramic restaurant serving a 3 course ½ board menu (payable locally), as well as à la carte (payable locally - for smaller appetites, sharing plates will also be available); extensive hot and cold buffet breakfast (included); atmospheric bar; film projection area (ideal for quiet evenings and bad weather days); children’s playroom; sun terrace; wellness area with 23m2 swimming pool and fitness room - superb views over the valley; free WiFi.
Recommended parking in the resort is at the Parking du Centre, from where it is a 150m walk to the lift accessing the hotel.
Pets not allowed.
