A new luxury family ski property just opened in the French Alps. Following a massive $110 million renovation, Club Med Alpe d'Huez reopened as a brand new resort on December 15, 2019.
Located just two hours drive south of Geneva, Alpe d'Huez was named Europe’s Best Ski Resort 2019 by Europe’s Best Destinations.
It’s known for having more than 300 days of sunshine per year and the town has long been popular with by sun-starved Brits as well as well-heeled Parisians, which gives it a certain cachet. The skiing and boarding are varied enough to appeal to all levels, and the resort has long been welcoming to families, unlike some of the other hard charging, hard partying ski towns found in the Alps that cater to singles.
The new Club Med Alpe d'Huez sits at about 6,100 feet high with access to lift that can take skiers up to 10,925 feet. After the renovation, it was awarded Club Med’s coveted “Fourth Trident,” which means that it will provide guests with an elevated, four-star winter family vacation experience. The ski-in/ski-out resort aims to provide chic accommodations, authentic mountain food and drink, and a wide range of activities for all ages. The views of the Alps are a bonus.
The 441-room resort caters to travelers with different budgets, boasting three accommodation categories; Superior Rooms, Deluxe Rooms and Suites. Groups can opt for the Family Superior Room category or the Suite category, which feature two bathrooms, an in-room lounge and a private terrace overlooking the valley.
“Club Med Alpe d’Huez provides travelers with the perfect all-inclusive accommodations this ski season to explore the surrounding ski domain and charming towns,” Club Med North America vice president Sabrina Cendral said in a statement. “Not only can guests enjoy the resort’s must-try experiences, such as a torch-lit ski descent under the moonlight, but they can also enjoy several après-ski activities in the comfort of the resort.”
“The interiors have been designed to embody the mountain spirit while incorporating the latest digital innovations to create an authentic and hassle-free Alpine vacation for guests of all ages and backgrounds,” Cendral continued.
Club Med may be known for all-inclusive beach vacations, but it’s just as revered outside the United States for its ski properties. The company opened its first ski hotel more than 60 years in 1956 in Leysin, Switzerland. Thanks to its reach across Europe and Asia, it is now the world’s largest ski resort operator, with more than 20 resort hotels in major ski areas in France, Italy, Switzerland, Japan and China. Ski resorts now comprise about one-third of Club Med’s portfolio.
To entice American travelers, the resort recently launched a new promotion that allows guests who book by August 27 to save up to 30 percent off their vacation for select dates between November 24, and May 3, 2020.
