For previous visitors of Val Thorens you would have most likely come across the big Club Med Hotel at the bottom of the resort, or in fact you may have even stayed there. Well Club Med have decided to replace this Hotel with a brand new Resort (it’s really a Hotel but they call it a resort so we best go along with it) and have called it Val Thorens Sensations.

Club Med is extremely elated and proud to announce that it will open new purpose built ski resort Hotel, Val Thorens Sensations, in December 2014. Situated in one of the most sought after ski destinations in the French Alps – Val Thorens in the Trois Vallées – the brand new ski-in and ski-out Resort will have an amazing view of the breathtakingly beautiful snowcapped mountains, perfect and immediate access to the slopes and mouth-watering cuisine by a Michelin Star chef.
Val Thorens is at an altitude of 2,300m — the highest ski resort in all of Europe. It is designed to offer an unforgettable experience to guests and skiers of all age groups and skiing capabilities. There are more than 330 ski slopes that offer various activities, some of which include an on-ice driving experience and winter mountain biking to name a few.
A Val Thorens Hotel Customised for YOU!
Continuing with the rich tradition of personalising its holidays for guests, Club Med have designed Val Thorens Sensations by taking into consideration the choices and suggestions of its 1.3 million Facebook users. They were asked to vote on a wide range of features such as the name of the resort, its logo, all its design features and other activities. Based on the results gathered from about 13 different countries, the complete resort along with the skiing arrangement, the catering, wellness and other innovations were perfectly designed.
