    The stunning Koh-I Nor is quite literally the height of luxury in Val Thorens – at 2,364m, it’s the highest 5 star hotel in Europe. The hotel is named for the 105-carat diamond set into the crown of Queen Elizabeth, and means ‘Mountain of Light’ in Persian.

    The architects certainly took this title to heart – huge windows are the common theme throughout the hotel, letting in streams on natural light and allowing for the most amazing mountain views. The hotel is completed to an exceptionally high standard, with the perfect balance between style, luxury and comfort. Each of the 63 rooms is beautifully cosy with modern touches like free WiFi and a Nespresso coffee maker – not to mention a spacious private balcony.

    Mealtimes are a real highlight at the Koh-I Nor. You’ll have the choice of three top-class restaurants – enjoy a superb 5-course meal in L’Atelier d’Eric, or swap this for a credit towards a meal in the fantastic Le Diamant Noir restaurant, run by Michelin-starred chef Eric Samson, or La Cave restaurant. In the evenings, curl up in front of the fire in the bar, or sit out on the panoramic terrace and soak up the views.

    If you’re after some proper pampering, spend some time in the beautiful spa – it’s got two swimming pools, a whirlpool, sauna, hammam, salt wall, ice fountain, experience showers and relaxation zone – plus a full menu of treatments and massages.

    Families are also well looked after at the Koh-I Nor. Kids will love the games rooms and can choose from dedicated menus in the restaurants and bar. For infants, there’s a pre-bookable Baby Pack with all the equipment you need.

    If you do manage to tear yourself away from the comforts of the hotel, you’ll step right out onto the slopes - the Koh-I Nor is ski-in, ski-out.

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.
