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.
One floor of the new spa will have five large treatment rooms, including two double suites and one signature Thai massage suite. A hammam will also be installed to offer guests warming and soothing hot stone massages and energizing Himalayan salt scrub experiences.
A new yoga studio will be located next to the spa and will offer early morning pre-ski sessions with a qualified instructor. Evening classes will focus on releasing tension and stretching the muscles used during skiing. Private classes will be available.
On the second floor, guests will find the wellness area with experiential showers, a cold plunge pool, a relaxation lounge, a Capri-stone hammam and a wooden sauna. Nearby, guests will find a 45-foot lap pool.
The spa menu was specially created for those who need heat and moisture after exposure to the wind and cold while skiing and other winter activities. Pre-ski massages to help improve circulation and flexibility are available as are post-ski treatments to assist in recovery time.
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.
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.
