Visitor comments

  • "Fantastic gastronomic experience. The chef is truly fabulous! Inspiring, inventive and genuine food served with professionalism and humility. We loved it. The hotel is gorgeous and the staff generally attentive. It is actually good value given the excellence of it all." - Trip Advisor
  • "The restaurant Le K2 is an experience in itself. Its Michelin Star is well deserved. The originality of the food and the exceptional presentation were a complete delight from the "amuse bouches" to the final declination of chocolates served in tiny drawers... With only 20 places, the restaurant is intimate, like a drawing room, while the exceptional service make you feel like royalty." -  Trip Advisor
