The hotel group’s first ski resort sits at the foot of Mont Blanc…
As the ski holiday industry grows even further in popularity, despite factors such as the EU Referendum or Brexit, Italian Hospitality Collection has announced that the luxury resort of Le Massif has officially opened its doors in the Italian ski resort of Courmayeur.
Le Massif, a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, has a distinct chalet vibe in its design. It shelters a total of 80 rooms and suites, a world-class spa, a private, in-house ski concierge, two on-site restaurants including the gourmet Cervo Rosso Steakhouse and all-day-dining family restaurant Chetif, two bars and a ski room.
The five-star hotel is conveniently located in the centre of picturesque Courmayeur, a stone’s throw from both the resort cable car and the village’s most fashionable boutiques and vibrant nightlife.
The expansive Le Massif Spa offers the ideal antidote to a day on the slopes, with a range of innovate treatments including forest bathing and alpine stone massages designed to soothe aching muscles. Centred around Italian Hospitality Collection’s signature Equilibrium philosophy – pioneered at the collection’s award-winning Tuscan spa properties – the treatment menu has been expertly curated to tackle internal inflammation, the number one cause of life-limiting illnesses.
In an exciting period of growth for the hotel collection, Le Massif is Italian Hospitality Collection’s first ski property, joining a portfolio which includes Chia Laguna resort in Sardinia and the renowned thermal spa hotels Grotta Giusti, Bagni di Pisa and Fonteverde in Tuscany.
In regards to hotel development within ski locations globally, recent reports suggest that an overwhelming majority of 76 per cent of ski travellers believe that chalets were a more popular accommodation choice than hotels. This suggests even further that hotels opening in these locations must, like Le Massif, work harder to ensure that its design is one that evokes a home-from-home setting on the slopes.
