The Chalet Hotel Alba is a wonderful space and offers something for everyone. The bar and lounge areas have a lovely atmosphere and the bedrooms are well proportioned and offer flexibility for families of every size.
Families really appreciate this lovely, high quality Chalet Hotel in a prime location in this ever popular, prestige resort. Offering comfort and convenience, combined with our established Chalet Hotel services, the Alba is deservedly popular and we look forward to welcoming more Esprit families to the joys of the Three Valleys.
The Alba really is the perfect choice for families who want to hit the slopes with the minimum of fuss and in the shortest possible time. The magic carpet nursery area for our Spritelets classes is just 50m away. The 'Doron' blue run outside the Alba takes skiers straight down to the resort centre and main lifts, opening up access from there to the whole of the Three Valleys. Alternatively you can take the Adret chairlift from just below the Rond Point and start your ski day from there.
Returning to the Alba on skis couldn't be easier, either from the Saulire side of the Three Valleys down the Marmotte and Doron slopes, or, if you're in the resort centre, the Rhodos 1 gondola will bring you straight back 'home' to the Rond Point.
The Alba has charming communal rooms, with the lounge and bar attractively furnished with comfy seating and a fireplace. This provides the perfect setting for a refreshing après-ski drink, and for enjoying evening apéritifs and canapés.
The dining room has picture windows overlooking the large sun-terrace, which in turn looks out over the Doron slopes, the Rond Point and across the scenic Méribel valley.
The Alba also has its own adult-only wellness area on the lower ground floor, with a sauna, steam-room and whirlpool spa bath affording parents a relaxing haven in which to unwind.
Our staff provide a hot and cold buffet breakfast, afternoon tea and our 'Culinary Choice' evening menu, whilst our Baby-Listening/Child-Patrol Service, running till 11pm, allows parents to relax in good company over coffee and liqueurs after dining. Children's High Tea is served at 5.15pm and supervised by our staff till 6pm.
We are pleased to be able to offer a complete range of room-styles here to suit most families, from a twin with cot for a couple with a baby to sets of rooms for larger families, sleeping up to six.
