The Taj-I Mah is the height of luxury in Les Arcs. Even its name alludes to its impeccable quality – it’s named for the largest un-mounted diamond in the Iranian Crown Jewels collection, and translates to ‘Crown of the Moon’.
This 5-star hotel is the perfect blend of luxury and comfort, with soft furnishings and striking modern art. And you certainly won’t forget where you are in the world – there are huge windows everywhere, to let in loads of natural light and allow gorgeous mountain views. Each of the 48 rooms is well supplied with modern amenities, like free WiFi and a coffee maker, and there’s a good choice of sizes and views.
The facilities match the top-notch status too. The beautiful wellness area has a large indoor pool as well as a sauna, steam room, whirlpool, salt wall, experience showers and relaxation area – plus there’s a team of beauticians on hand to help you relax and unwind with spa treatments or massages.
Even families can find peace at the Taj-I Mah – there are loads of facilities for kids, like a playroom, special kids’ menus in the restaurants and bar, babysitting service and even a pre-bookable Baby Pack, with all the equipment you need for infants.
Mealtimes are certainly something to remember here. There are two restaurants to choose from; the casual L'Atelier d'Eric, which serves tasty home cooking and has a cosy atmosphere, or the gourmet Le Diamant Noir, run by Michelin-starred chef Eric Samson. Le Diamant Noir also has an outdoor terrace, with panoramic views of the resort and slopes. At the end of the day, you can sit back in the lounge bar and enjoy a couple of drinks and some live music.
And the best bit? The hotel is right on the slopes, next to the cabriolet lift and just a minute's walk from the resort centre.
