Sandwiched between Val Thorens and Courchevel in Les Trois Vallées, in France – the largest ski area in the world – Méribel has some of the best hotels in the area perfect for your next ski holiday.
Heading to Méribel for your next ski trip? From chic mountain lodges and family-friendly accommodation to spa retreats and foodie havens, there’s plenty of great hotel options to choose from, many of which are ski-in, ski-out – and all come with great mountain views and fresh air as standard.
Opposite the piste in Mottaret, this hotel has mountain views from all rooms, heated ski lockers and bags of Savoyard style. The rustic Table du Ruitor restaurant has a weekly Argentinian-themed evening, and a sommelier ensures you get proper food and wine pairings. The hotel is also home to the only spa in Mottaret – complete with sauna, jacuzzi, Turkish bath and treatment rooms.
Located on the piste at the top of Mottaret, this 45-room hotel offers good food, a pool and sauna alongside cheery staff. Families can book a triple, quadruple or interconnecting rooms, while junior suites have their own lounge and balcony facing the slopes. Hungry? Tuck into hearty burgers at L’Hermine, fine dining meals at Le Chamois and crêpes by the fire at the Lounge Bar.
One of Méribel’s original hotels, with an enviable position beside the main Chaudanne lift station, this four-star property has 64 rooms and suites plus excellent wellness offerings. After a day on the slopes, guests can relax in the hot tub, sauna, hammam and outdoor pool, or fitness room. There’s a games room for children, plus a candlelit brasserie with a large fire and live music.
Easy access to the slopes, good food and wellness are all on tap at Hotel Le Savoy. Ease aching muscles with a Finnish sauna or treatment in the spa. Then head to Le Resto, which has a mountain chalet feel, with communal tables, warm fires and wholesome dishes, like local burgers at lunch and chicken fillet with mushrooms for dinner.
Expect contemporary bedrooms, a large lounge area and restaurant with valley views at this centrally located hotel. Kick back after a day on the slopes by watching the sunset from your balcony, or jump in the outdoor hot tub. You can choose from B&B, half-board or all-inclusive. The Café del Mott terrace is just the spot for après-ski drinks with DJ vibes.
A warm, cosy atmosphere greets you the minute you step inside this four-star hotel, with its low lighting, soft throws and welcoming staff. The recently revamped rooms feature quirky touches, such as feature walls and Smeg fridges, while the smart Marius restaurant serves Savoy specialities. Soak up the mountain views with a dip in the open-air pool.
This new, family-run pad is chic and welcoming. It has 55 rooms and suites, a spa and two restaurants – plus a prime position on the piste opposite the Rond-Pont hub at the top of the resort (1,600m, 5,250ft). The decor is stylish, with a vibrant colour scheme, modern furniture and sheepskin-covered bar stools. There’s also a boot room and yoga studio.
Slip into the outdoor hot tub and watch the sun set across the mountains at the Mérilys. With 28 rooms, it’s positioned on the edge of a pine forest but is within walking distance to the slopes. The restaurant – which features large windows facing the peaks – offers a buffet breakfast to set you up for the day, and there’s also a sauna, hammam and fitness room.
