Nira Montana

A new five-star hotel has just opened in the Italian alpine resort of La Thuile. With access to Mont Blanc and the Gran Paradiso Natural Reserve, Nira Montana is nicely positioned to access some prime ski terrain, once the snow comes down this winter! A member of Design Hotels, Nira Montana is a design-driven boutique hotel with just 55 guest rooms. The official website describes it as an “alternative, more authentic way to experience the breathtaking Aosta Valley.”

Local materials were incorporated in the building’s construction, and Milan-based Studio Del Portico conceived the interiors in a contemporary style with natural elements. Decorated with wood floors and Foscarini lamps, the rooms come with creature comforts like Lavazza espresso machines, free wifi, and luxurious Hästens beds to ensure a good night’s sleep. Facilities include a fine Italian restaurant and a spa with a Technogym fitness center, swimming pool, sauna, and steam room.
