Luxury ski resort Aman Le Mélézin is scheduled to reopen on December 17 just in time for the alpine ski season. During its closure, the resort has been working on a new two-story spa, a new restaurant, and children’s club. 

Located on Bellecôte Piste, Courchevel, France, guests have access ski-in, ski-out services. The resort opened in 1992 with 31 rooms and suites, all of which were renovated last year. During last year’s renovations, the property also added a new sun terrace and bar area.

To complement the wellness in the spa, Aman Le Mélézin and non-residents will be able to dine at Nama, a culinary concept that follows the Japanese tradition of washoku, a UNESCO-recognized traditional way of dining that translates to "harmony in food." Nama will be led by chef Keiji Matoba and will serve authentic Japanese dishes such as sushi, sashimi, wagyu beef and otoro tuna. There will also be a range of ramen available to warm up with after a day on the slopes. 

Children’s Club

For guests ages three to 15, the children’s club will offer a space for socialization. Children will have activities including arts and crafts, a variety of social games, and interactive cooking demonstrations to bake and decorate their own cookies and cakes. 

They will be offered hot chocolate and a special children’s afternoon tea as well as healthy snacks and fruit. 

The Club is open until 10 p.m. every day and children will be under professional supervision.
