Freshly refurbished, the Carlina Hotel and Spa can now also boast an exclusive, adjacent and brand-new sister residence, offering all the services of a four-star hotel, yet the often-welcome privacy of an apartment. The Carlina Residence comprises five swish, contemporary ski-in, ski-out boltholes each accommodating up to ten guests in four or five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Furnishings in neutral, calming tones, flat-screen TVs, well-equipped kitchenettes, ski lockers with boot driers, a private sauna and free WiFi enhance any stay, and the panoramic south-facing balconies are unbeatable for soaking up views of the sunlit, snow-capped peaks. The Carlina Residence is located at 2,500 metres on the slopes of Belle Plagne, one of the prettiest and most atmospheric villages in the resort of La Plagne.
The Carlina Residence is poised to become popular with discerning groups of friends and extended families – plus little ones are more than welcome, with cots and high-chairs bookable in advance – and it’s also wheelchair-friendly. Guests benefit from special discounted La Plagne ski passes, ski school sessions and equipment hire and, after a day on the slopes, there is an open invitation to indulge in the Carlina Hotel’s spa, with its new pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and hammam. Guests are warmly welcomed to dine in the hotel’s cosy, wood-clad bar and gourmet restaurant with its glorious terrace and, for those who prefer the intimacy of their apartment, there is also a room service menu. For those daily essentials, order shopping pre-arrival and ask for freshly-baked baguettes to be delivered every morning.
Naturally, the house-keeping is all taken care of: beds made up on arrival, towels supplied and changed mid-week, bathrobes provided and final cleaning included. Daily or mid-stay cleaning can be provided on request, at extra cost.
