Located on the edge of the fabulous alpine resort of Megève, the L’Alpaga is a stylish and contemporary hotel offering magnificent views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding Alps. Built in traditional alpine style, the hotel comprises 10 chalets which form its own private hamlet with a village atmosphere. Connected by underground tunnels, guests can move freely around the hotel without the need to venture outside. With a warm and friendly vibe, this 5-star hotel offers exceptional hospitality and a knowledgeable concierge service to meet all needs and requests.
L'Alpaga blends seamlessly into the landscape, and while the exteriors are full of traditional alpine charm, the interiors have a modern luxe vibe. Sensual woods, fine fabrics, original art, burnished leather, and the hotel’s collection of vintage travel guides, create a haven for relaxation. The forest green, grey blue, deep brown and rich burgundy palette adds sophistication and reflects the colours of the beautiful mountain landscape.
There are 33 rooms and suites spread across the chalets, all with balconies or terrace, comfortable beds, wonderful attention to detail, plush furnishings and contemporary ensuite bathroom. Amenities include Wi-Fi, flatscreen TV, safety deposit box, minibar, high-end bathing products and hairdryer. Entry level Classic Rooms sleep two and can be connected for families or groups. Deluxe Rooms offer more space, while Prestige Rooms have an additional bed on a mezzanine level or in an adjoining room.
