Ultima Collection is inviting guests to take their skiing to new heights in Courchevel, with the highly anticipated opening of its luxurious ski and wellness resort, Ultima Courchevel Belvédère. It will open on December the 17th 2021, as the fourth Alpine property in the Collection, offering the experience of a 5-star hotel within the privacy of a chalet.

Ultima’s guests will choose a level of service: completely self-catered — which is not without its access to Ultima’s luxury concierge — or the full experience, complete with a dedicated ski butler, massage therapists, transfers to Courchevel 1850 and famously extravagant breakfasts. There are 13 privatised four- and five- bedroom chalets, categorised into three types, Grand, Prestige and Signature, based on their size and service level.

Ideally located on the Belvédère slopes, sitting between Courchevel 1850 and La Rosière forest, each chalet features a fully equipped kitchen, expansive living space, lift and access to an in-house designer ski store, whilst every bedroom boasts an ensuite bathroom, dressing room and balcony or direct outdoor access. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow swathes of natural interior light and breathtaking views across the picturesque snow-blanketed valley. Natural beauty is not in short supply.

As expected with an Ultima Collection property, wellness is very much on the menu. The spa area features treatment rooms, an indoor and outdoor pool, state-of-the-art hammam, Jacuzzi and sauna, fitness room and beauty salon. Bespoke treatments and programmes with leading wellness experts are available on request, accompanied by the latest innovative products from leading Swiss wellness brand Swiss Perfection. Ultima Courchevel Belvédère also welcomes a new restaurant and terrace to the Courchevel dining scene, serving gourmet cuisine to Ultima guests.

Michala Chatel, Ultima Collection’s Managing Partner, has said: “Last year we were reminded how special an annual ski break can be to a family or group of friends. The grand opening this December will signal a joyous moment for many. As is the case for the rest of our Collection, our guests can expect the utmost levels of privacy and elegance in the mountains.”

Located at the heart of Europe’s largest ski region, Les Trois Vallées, over 600 kilometres of maintained pistes lie on the doorstep of the chalets. It’s a short 7-minute transfer journey to the city’s bars and restaurants for when the hours turn dark. Plus, Ultima ski guides and instructors are ready to lead excursions to the hidden gems of The Three Valleys and beyond. Non-skiers can take to the town of Courchevel to explore the refined boutiques, dining and entertainment on offer, with the Ultima team on call to curate unique and authentic experiences featuring the region’s finest offerings at any time.

Private jet and helicopter transfers can easily be arranged to Courchevel Altiport and Chambéry Aerodrome. Ultima Courchevel can also be reached comfortably by car, or luxury pre-booked transfers from Geneva and Lyon international airports.
