Hotel Ecrin Blanc
The Ecrin Blanc is a brand new hotel opening its doors 20th December 2019. The hotel is situated between Courchevel Village and Courchevel Moriond and will have its own chairlift taking skiers straight into Courchevel 1850. At the end of the day everyone staying at the hotel will be able to ski back on a blue run right to the ski and boot room's door. The hotel also connects to the amazing Aquamotion centre and as such is going to be an attractive option for families.
Ecrin Blanc is designed with wood and stone in the style of a traditional Savoyard chalet. Interior designer Chantal Peyrat has sought to imbue the hotel with a warm, convivial vibe and mountain spirit. There are 127 rooms offering categories that can accommodate from two to eight guests.
When it comes to food, Ecrin Blanc has come up with fun, unique options including a food truck in the 'Jardin des Neiges', also accessible from the ski slopes, and a bar-cum-concept store called Le Cellier where DJs will play on the weekends. There will also be a grill restaurant and a second bar.
For families the Ecrin Blanc will have a dedicated children's activity programme to entertain kids aged 4 to 16 for their entire stay. Furthermore, the hotel is directly connected to the Aquamotion centre, Courchevel's giant aquatic playground (15,000sqm) complete with 9 swimming pools, a water park and spa.
The Ecrin is brand new for winter season 2019/20 so it is difficult to comment on. Having said that we expect this hotel to be a popular choice with families during holidays as not only is it ski-in ski-out you have unlimited access to probably the best aquatic centre in the alps.
Reception, lounge, bar, 3 restaurants, children's club, ski shop and car parking. Private access to the Aquamotion centre with both family and adult areas; indoor and outdoor pools, diving pools, slides, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, salt cave, effervescent baths, gym, massage and various treatments are all available.
