Despite the Meribel resort being perfectly situated for access to the Three Valleys 600km of pristine ski runs, L’Helios provides a variety of activities for guests to enjoy, for any time that you don’t fancy the slopes. The hotel’s sun-drenched terrace makes an ideal spot for lunch or a lazy afternoon, providing spectacular views over the valleys; meanwhile the quaint lounge area is perfect for snuggling up to the log fire with a book. L’Helios pièce de résistance is its private cinema – the only one in Meribel - which is available for guests to watch a number of feature films at their leisure.
L’Helios pours a great deal of attention into its dining experience. With an experienced team of chefs at the kitchen’s helm, the hotel offers guests a menu consisting of re-fashioned Savoy favourites, creative recipes and local ingredients. Guests are also strongly advised to take a peek at the restaurant’s extensive list of fine wines.
If after all of that you’ve still got some energy left – or even if you don’t, L’Helios spa area makes the perfect end to the day. Choosing from the indoor pool, steam bath or massage service, you’re bound to feel pampered. The hotel also has fully qualified staff offering beauty and makeover packages available for both men and women.
