W Hotel, Verbier

W Verbier

A supreme location right by the main Medran lift at the top end of the village with ski to the door access (although you may choose to stop before you make it to the door at the hotels wonderful slopeside apres ski bar and terrace). It is a sizeable hotel but is split across a series of linked designer chalet style buildings. This combined with the low key first impressions of the minimalist reception and relaxed staff give a more intimate feel. Styling is urban chic meets classic alpine with vast areas of glass, polished surfaces and bare metal fusing cleverly with exposed timber and the classic red and white of the Swiss national flag. All the designer rooms are spacious and with their own gas fire place and balcony with only the view varying. There is also a great lounge bar, three in house restaurants, spa with indoor/outdoor pool and even a “mountain concierge” in the luxury boot room. Cutting edge style and ski to the door convenience!
