The ultimate in boutique luxury, Le K2 Palace is one of Courchevel's most sophisticated hotels. Close to the Croisette and with a lift directly outside for ski in/ski out access to the entire Trois Vallées, it's perfect for families and couples alike.
A unique concept in Courchevel from K2 – combining inspiration from the Alps and Himalayas to provide the ultimate sanctuary.
The hotel occupies a fabulous ski in/ski out location with direct access to the Trois Vallées so you can make the most of your time on the slopes. It’s also just minutes from the centre of the village if luxury shopping and dining is more tempting!
For larger families the six Suite-Chalets are ideal, offering the space and privacy of a chalet with direct access to the hotel from your ‘front door’ without even stepping outside. Superb private spa facilities include a swimming pool and hammam or hot bath.
Every season there is an array of events put on at the hotel including magic shows, musical events and children’s entertainment to enliven young and old alike.
The ultra luxurious five star Le K2 Palace takes style to another level in Courchevel 1850. With its enviable Cospillot piste side location, mountain and valley views, and impressive contemporary Alpine architecture, it offers guests an exceptional ski experience. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal and the service is faultless. And with only 30 beautifully designed rooms, the hotel is perfect for couples, groups of friends and families.
The facilities at the K2 Palace are nothing short of fabulous. The two restaurants - Le Black Pyramid and the two-Michelin starred Le Kintessence serve innovative gourmet food, and both are complemented by an expertly created wine cellar. Bar 8611 is a place for cocktails and relaxing, whilst the Winston Klub cigar lounge is a perfect after dinner retreat. The hotel caters wonderfully for non-skiers too. There's the spacious Goji Spa, spread over two floors with one double and three single treatment rooms, and a hammam, using Valmont products. The very well equipped fitness room is complete with a personal trainer for guests' use, and there's an indoor infinity pool overlooking the valley. Families with younger children love the playroom - there's a mini K2 mountain to climb with a bobsleigh slide back down, interactive games and films, whilst the Teens room has an interactive dance floor, recording studio and arcade games. The K2 also has a cinema room which can be taken over privately or even transformed into a nightclub or theatre for a special event.
The service at the K2 Palace is efficient, warm and very personal. A concierge service operates 24 hours a day, and is on hand to help with any enquiry a guest may have. The hotel has its own ski boutique, where equipment may be bought or rented, and private lessons can also be arranged. And factoring in Le K2's driver service our guests staying here experience a truly pampered ski holiday.
