What is the Worlds best ski hotel?

Planning your next ski trip and not sure where to stay? If you like luxurious and stylish hotels then read on…

Congratulations again to the fantastic W Verbier on winning the coveted ‘Worlds best ski hotel’ title at the 2017 World Ski Awards. That is two years in a row for this cool and stylish hotel and very much deserved.

We love this hotel which brings urban designer chic to the slopes. W are renowned for their cool designer hotels in city locations around the World but this is the first W hotel located in a ski resort. The hotel is the only luxury hotel in Verbier with a ski in-out location. Guests will find the main Medran lifts a few metres from the hotel and the famous Verbier nightlife on the doorstep.

The hotel combines sleek contemporary design with traditional alpine style. Acres of gleaming glass and polished surfaces sit cleverly with exposed beams. Check out the panoramic views through the huge windows while enjoying a delicious evening cocktail in the  ‘W Living room’. If it’s a special occasion why not order a bottle of vintage Krug, that is if you don’t mind the 1400 Euro price-tag. If you like your apres ski right from the slopes then you can ski right up to the ‘W Off Piste’ bar outside and relax with a beer and enjoy the resident DJ’s mixes.

The hotel offers foodies some excellent dining options. We particularly love the Eat-Hola Tapas bar where you can watch the chefs create their  signature Tapas dishes.   ‘W Kitchen’ specializes in serving  up a unique twist on local dishes using the finest fresh produce. Even the most discerning food lovers should enjoy these gourmet offerings. The hotel is also home to ‘Carve’, arguably one of the best sushi restaurants in the Alps.

All 123 rooms and suites have a vibrant décor and are filled with state-of-the-art technology and innovative amenities. For the ultimate luxury experience you could check into the Wow or E-Wow suites. These spacious suites are truly stunning with those extra special touches like private sauna and your own bar.

The real jewel in the crown of the W Verbier is the ultra luxurious ‘Away’ Spa. This is the most luxurious spa in Verbier and one of the best in the Alps, boasting nine treatment rooms, a hamman, jacuzzi and steam rooms. Take a dip in the amazing indoor/outdoor pool with views over the resort. If you have enough energy after skiing the hotel can even organise Pilates and Yoga sessions.

So if you like your luxury and are looking for cool alpine chic with exceptional service right by the slopes you should definitely consider this hotel. Families are welcome but the hotel seems to be aimed at couples and small groups.
