(PRWEB UK) 28 January 2012
The Suites de la Potiniere, situated within the exclusive Courchevel resort in the French Alps, is the most expensive luxury ski hotel in the world. That's the finding of a new survey conducted by Luxury-Hotels.com. The number one ranking revealed itself after the average rates for a standard double room for all luxury hotels located inside ski resorts were compared. The analysis focused on the period spanning January to March 2012.
Situated in the Tarentaise Valley of Savoie, the Suites de la Pointière earned the number one slot with an average overnight price tag of $1958. The second place finisher, the Aurelio Lech in Austria’s Lech am Arlberg mountain village, lagged significantly far behind at an average nightly fee of $1423.
The opposite side of the Alps is also quite costly for ski lovers this year. In Switzerland’s St. Moritz, the Carlton Hotel made a showing in the survey’s number three spot. This Swiss luxury hotel is charging guests an average daily rate of $1256. Combined, the three aforementioned ski resorts took eight of the top 10 most expensive luxury ski spots, making Courchevel, Lech-Arlberg and St. Moritz the top three contenders for the world’s most exclusive ski resorts.
Two hotels in the United States scored the remaing two positions inside the Top 10. The St. Regis Deer Valley in Park City, Utah came in at number six while the Little Nell in Aspen secured the number eight slot. Rooms at both of these western U.S. ski hotels are going for around $1000 per night.
