Hotel Le K2
It's early morning, you’re slowly awakening from a deep sleep when, all of a sudden, your kids rush into the room and jump into your bed. While playing and sharing some laughs with them, you look through the floor to ceiling windows of the apartment that offer magnificent views to the valley of Courchevel, all dressed in white.
You instantly know that a new day of fun in the snow is about to start and you just cannot wait to find out what the journey holds.
As you ski out the access of this luxurious retreat, with your new personalised Volant skis on, the experience of descending Courchevel’s slopes reaches another level, exceeding all your expectations.
By the end of the day, you feel so exhausted and yet so satisfied. While your wife heads to the spa, you make some time for yourself to relax at Le Winston Klub, where you will taste one of the rare liqueurs from the cellar while sharing a nice conversation with other members. Don’t worry about your children; they are well looked after at the kid’s zone.
To first time visitors, Le K2 might look like a village on its own, a cluster of palatial Alpine chalets perched on a mountainside, ideally located to take advantage of the spectacular views of the snow-covered valley below, while enjoying direct access to the slopes.
Le K2 is indeed a very unique interpretation of Alpine luxury within the exclusivity of Courchevel 1850, comprising 29 rooms and 5 suite-chalets that are specifically designed to give its guests the feeling of home in the luxurious comfort of a proper palace.
Gastronomy and wellness are paramount at Hotel Le K2.
The resort has its own two-star Michelin restaurant, Le Kintessence, as well as a cave with over 1,100 of the best French grand crus, while Le K2 Goji Spa by the Swiss house La Prairie provides a range of sophisticated facial and body treatments.
Hotel Le K2 has a privileged location within Courchevel 1850, the most chic of all French Alpine resorts, along the Cospillot slope, giving it unique and original views of the resort and its valley. It is also located very close to the center of town and right to the teleskis that gives access to the whole of the "Trois Vallées," the largest ski domain in the World.
Gastronomy is no small matter al Le K2, to the point that the hotel's own in-house haute-cuisine restaurant, this intimate "salon gastronomique," Le Kintessence, has been awarded two Michelin stars.
The delight would not be complete without a proper pairing, and here again Le K2 is likely to surpass expectations, with its cave, keeping over 1,100 references, including some greatly valued "crus d’exception" and an amazing collection of references from France’s grandes terroirs.
But you can also enjoy the “creative buffets” at Le Black Pyramid, the other hotel restaurant, mixing tradition and innovation, sweet and salty, always with the aim of surprising guests.
The convivial and cozy 8611 Bar is, in turn, the place to go for a cocktail "d’auteur," as the trained barmen take pride in their mastery in the art of cocktail making.
Spa & Wellness
For a glorious pares-ski there's nothing better than a visit to the Goji Spa, devised by the Swiss firm La Prairie. A range of facial and body treatments are available here, from the most traditional, to the likes of the spa’s signature caviar-based facial treatment.
Enjoy the views from the circular swimming pool, with a cascade and hot and cold water areas, as well as sauna and hammam.
Perhaps you prefer to stretch before or after your day on the slopes in the fully equipped state-of-the-art gym.
The resort’s own in-house hair salon, Shu Uemura, adheres to the Japanese philosophy of precision and perfection. Here you will also be able to experience its original line of exclusive hair care products based on natural ingredients such as white tea.
Although Courchevel is renowned for its famous nightlife and shopping, there is actually little need to go into town in order to have fun apres-ski.
For example, you can enjoy an evening of dancing at Le K’baret, a nightclub-style party venue that doubles also as a cinema room and is equipped with state-of-the-art light and sound technology.
Or you can have a quiet evening in good company at the “fumoir” of Le Winston Klub, a private retreat for those that enjoy a good cigar and some of their exceptional liquors.
Children will surely enjoy any of the two spaces dedicated to them. These playrooms boast high tech simulators for all sorts of games.
And if you prefer shopping, Hotel Le K2 also has its own boutique, by Volant, offering a choice of top Winter sports brands.
The accommodation is provided by 29 rooms and five suite-chalets. Hotel Le K2 has been designed so that all of its rooms have views of Courchevel 1850, the surrounding forests and snow-covered peaks.
The rooms are spacious with solid, natural materials throughout, in line with a philosophy of high end comfort without superfluous ostentation.
While the chalets are in a category of their own, each with five to six rooms and with several floors, they have a salon with a fireplace, private swimming pool, hammam, home cinema, large terraces and a lift. They are also fully serviced, with a butler, a maid and a chef, all devoted to provide maximum levels of service.
