  • So what's it like?

    Having undergone an extensive makeover, the discreet Araucaria Hotel & Spa opens its doors this winter to reveal a chic and cosy setting with a friendly atmosphere.

    As well as balconies that overlook either the slalom stadium or the Mont Blanc, the 84 contemporary bedrooms have everything to make your stay relaxing and comfortable – including video on demand, in-room WiFi, branded toiletries and big, comfy beds.

    You won’t be short of entertainment, either. Spa bunnies will love the Nuxe Spa with its sensory showers, sauna, indoor pool, ice cave and Nuxe-branded treatments. And while you’re relaxing, you can watch over the little ones while they play in the children’s pool.

    Make the most of your evenings by heading to the modern oak and marble bar, where you can sip on a cocktail and sway along to some live music or a DJ set or two. Don’t be fooled, though - this fantastic entertainment area isn’t just for adults. Every corner of the room has something to keep the kids occupied – from the arcade and colouring books to table football and the cinema showing cartoons.

    You’ll get to savour both breakfast and dinner in the elegant restaurant overlooking the slalom track. Themed buffets are set around a cute market-themed corner, boasting familiar stalls that serve up a bunch of international sweet and savoury specialities. You’ll then tuck in to your meal on one of the large host tables – great for socialising.

    Lastly, and most importantly, the Araucaria is right next to the slopes, making every day on the mountain easy and stress-free.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.
