Furthermore, there are four hotels in Courchevel that hold the coveted ‘Palace’ status which distinguishes them from the rest of the five-star pack. These are Le Cheval Blanc, Le K2 Palace, Les Palace des Neiges Hotel and Les Airelles. The creme de la creme of the Courchevel hotels, these four stand out from the rest thanks to their top-range facilities and services.
Our 3 favourite luxury hotels in Courchevel
Other than the aforementioned five-star Palace hotels, these are the Courchevel hotels that, in our opinion, have something special that makes them different from the others:
1. Le Sivoliere Hotel
Of the many luxury hotels on offer in Courchevel 1850, Le Sivoliere Hotel, situated in the forest on the western edge of the village, offers luxury without being too exclusive. A gorgeous Alpine chalet, it offers 35 rooms, suites and apartments as well as a luxurious spa and a gourmet restaurant lead by Michelin-starred chef Fanny Rey.
2. Manali Lodge Hotel
The ski-in and ski-out Manali Lodge Hotel, in Courchevel Moriond, is smart and welcoming and has a spa and pool that are open to the public. Another relatively small establishment with only 36 rooms, this five-star hotel is a great choice for families thanks to its fully customisable room layouts.
3. Le Chabichou Hotel
One of the oldest luxury hotels in Courchevel, founded in 1963, Le Chabichou offers elegant accommodation without being ostentatious. It boasts all the services and facilities you'd expect from a five-star hotel including a spa, lounge bar, beauty salon, kids' club and even its own bakery and delicatessen shop. However, the hotel is mostly famous for its restaurant which, under the careful eye of chef Stéphane Buron, has held onto its two Michelin stars for over 30 years.
