Ultra-hip, boutique brand W Hotels have opened their first alpine retreat in Verbier. The 123 room property is designed to appeal to the euro crowd that cruise into town most winter weekends to ski and party the night away. Comprising four new-build chalets linked together the hotel is two minutes walk from the main lift station. W have pulled out all the stops and have brought in Michelin-starred Madrid chef Sergi Arola to head up The Arola restaurant, as well as the more tapas style Eat-Hola.
Carve promises to be the night spot for some seasons to come – here dramatic black walls and furnishings are set off by convex ceiling mirrors. DJs will be flown in from around the world to complement the resident DJs on site.
There will also be the signature W AWAY spa featuring treatment rooms, a sauna, Jacuzzi and hammam, as well as fitness rooms for those who haven’t worn themselves out on the slopes, or the dance floor.
