Two hotels from leading luxury operators will be opening in the Swiss and French Alps in the next couple of years.

The first hotel to open will be a Four Seasons, currently being finished in the French ski resort of Megève in time for the coming ski season. The second planned opening is a Six Senses in the Swiss ski resort of Crans-Montana, in the Valais.

When it opens in December, the new 55-room Four Seasons property will be the first hotel in Megève to offer direct access to the Mont d’Arbois slopes. It signifies the first Four Seasons mountain hotel in Europe and the third Four Seasons hotel in France. Four Seasons also has ski hotels and residences in Whistler, Vail, Santa Fe and Jackson Hole.

The 47-room Six Senses hotel in Crans Montana is set to open 2020, and will also offer ski-in, ski-out access to guests. There will also be 17 Six Senses apartments available for sail, including three-bedroom loft apartments and four-bedroom units — 13 of which will be available to buy for foreigners as a second home.

Two restaurants are planned as well as a sun terrace and bar and retail space. Wellness offerings at the resort include a 2,000 sq m spa specialising in alpine treatments, gym and fitness studio, pool and suspended relaxation area. It will be built with a focus on sustainability, using local materials, efficient lighting, preserve energy and water wherever possible and using renewable energy.

Grégory Marchand, Managing Director of Barnes, the international property sales agents partnering with the development said: “Six Senses Crans-Montana is a unique project that gives a new dynamic to the location. Residents will have access to all the amenities of the hotel, which includes an internationally renowned spa, restaurants, fitness facilities and more. The overriding objective in the tourism policy is to attract and most importantly keep residents throughout the year.

“With Six Senses Crans-Montana, the proposed strategy is the solution to combat the concern that there could be periods of low occupancy.”
