Club Med raises the bar for skiing holidays in Les Arcs
9th January 2018
Since the new owners of Club Med took over a few years ago, there seems to be no shortage of investments in new hotels and resorts around the globe. The latest announcement is a spectacular new multi-million Euro resort in Les Arcs 1600 to raise the bar yet again.
Les Arcs is part of Frances second largest linked ski areas, with 425km of pistes which it shares with La Plagne. 70% of the slopes in Les Arcs are above 2,000m so its one of Frances most snowsure ski areas that offers a great mix of ski runs to suit all levels. Les Arcs 1600 is just 7 minutes from Borg St Maurice, so travel by Eurostar is defiantly on the cards.
Club Med Panorama, Les Arcs ticks all the boxes
The new hotel will be known as Club Med Les Arcs Panorama. It’s located among the trees on a plateau at 1,750m just above the village with direct access to the slopes. We haven’t yet seen the hotel, but it appears to have the same wrap around sunny terraces as the newly opened Club Med Samoens.
Club Med Panorama will be a 4-trident hotel but will offer a 5-trident space too, a model that has worked so well for Club Med. This is equivariant to a 4* and 5* hotels.
There are 434 rooms in the hotel ranging from the standard Club rooms to deluxe rooms and suites. Most of the bedrooms can be interconnecting, ideal for families and without the room supplements charged by other tour operators such as Crystal and Neilson holidays for example. In some of their hotels the charges can be higher than £800 for interconnecting rooms simply because demand is so high and the availability so limited of family connecting rooms.
All rooms offer both shower and baths and many have balconies with spectacular views across the mountains and slopes of Les Arcs.
3 restaurants with family dining offer wide choices for all tastes.
There will be restaurants, which will include dining spaces exclusively for families, equipped with highchairs and facilities for families including lower chairs and tables to make even the youngest of guests feel welcome and special. In addition, the buffet style restaurants that have proved so popular with our clients and a speciality restaurant with waiter service offering local mountain dishes such as Fondue and Raclette dishes, typical of the region.
3 Bars serve drinks and snacks, night and day.
One of the benefits of a Club Med ski holiday is the free bar, if you’re booked into a 5-trident room this includes unlimited Champaign too. We often forget the additional costs of a skiing holiday. Having a free bar saves many of our clients a lot. You can enjoy snacks and hot drinks too, throughout your stay.
