Araucaria Hotel & Spa, Plagne Centrein , France
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.
