Hotel Guide to Courchevel

Discover insights about Courchevel hotels

Updated

Finding hotel accommodation in Courchevel is certainly not difficult. There is a huge amount of choice available for practically all budgets and motivations – in fact, there are over 40 hotels here!

Hotels vs chalets & apartments

Chalets and apartments are usually the most popular accommodation options when it comes to ski holidays. They tend to offer more room, more flexibility in terms of catering and, sometimes, better prices. However, hotels are also a great choice for those visiting Courchevel, especially when you're not coming for a full week. 

Why book a hotel room instead of a chalet or an apartment in Courchevel?
The answer is simple: because you don't want to stay here for a full week. Even if apartment and chalet companies have recently made their booking requirements more flexible, offering shorter stays especially during the off season, the reality is that most chalets and apartments in Courchevel can only be booked for six or seven days. However, with hotels you can customise the length of your stay, from a weekend ski trip to a five-day holiday – it's your choice.

Hotels also tend to offer extended services and facilities: gourmet restaurants, spas, swimming pools, fitness rooms, tennis courts, cycle and/or ski hire, flexible catering options... the choices are endless.

A hotel in Courchevel is more likely to be a luxury hotel than not. In a country where five-star is a rarity, Courchevel has more than a dozen establishments that hold this classification.

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 BlancLe K2 PalaceLes 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.
