Good to know

"Friendly service"

The combination of location, fine facilities and 50 years of know-how make Le Kaila an exceptional luxury hotel.

From the en-suite bathrooms all of which are equipped with Jacuzzis and steam rooms, to the use of beautifully crafted traditional materials alongside the most modern of amenities. The refined décor and use of muted tomes creates a cosy but oh so chic atmosphere. 

They have three standards of rooms and five suites available ranging from 30m2 to 130m2, all decorated with natural wood and textured fabrics, cushions and finishes giving a smart, classic twist to the chalet-style interiors you see in a lot of properties in the area.

For further information or to make a booking please enquire directly or visit their website using the links on this page.

Worth knowing

l'Ekrin restaurant won its first Michelin star in 2015.

Who should go

With large family suites and direct access to the slopes this is the perfect place for a luxurious family holiday in the Alps.

The Pool

Also in the hotel is the large (500m2) Nuxe Spa which houses an indoor swimming pool, aqua-gym, hydro-massage, six treatment rooms and is again decorated in chic natural colours with lots of stone and wood features. And if pampering yourself wasn't enough, then there are a number of high-end clothes boutiques selling top of the range clothing and ski gear.

The Bar

Open daily from 09:00 until 01:00, this is a place for you to relax and enjoy at any point of the day.  From a coffee and the newspapers in the morning to a snack lunch or afternoon tea, an apres cocktail or and end of the day whiskey, this cosy lounge bar has a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.

The Restaurant

The hotel has a dramatic looking Michelin starred restaurant where Chef Laurent Azoulay creates dishes from local seasonal produce and provides you with his take on the traditional authentic mountain cuisine.

What else to book


You’ll need to book your own transfers, when staying here. Your main options are shared or private transfers, but consider whether you would prefer a door-to-door service or a (generally cheaper) “communal” drop-off point at your destination.

Book Transfers

Ski Hire

You’ll need to book your own ski hire, when staying here. There are many choices for hiring equipment. Generally, you’re best off choosing somewhere close for ease of access, & less far to carry your kit, easier to make changes, and quicker to return and pay at the end. Nevertheless, many suppliers will deliver and some snow-front rental stores offer ski lockers, so it’s worth checking out all the options. 

Book Ski Hire

Lifts & Passes

You’ll need to buy your own lift pass, when staying here. Lift passes can be booked online or bought in resort on arrival. There are many types of pass available, suited to different levels, length of stay and budget. It’s worth reading up on the options to get the most from your lift pass in summer & winter.

Instructors & Lessons

When staying here, you’ll need to book  your own ski or snowboard lessons. Tuition is strongly recommended for complete beginners and is always a good idea whatever your level to perfect your technique. Group lessons are a great way for children to learn with their peers whilst giving you some free time on the slopes. Groups are also a generally cheaper option for adults, however, with a private instructor you’ll have undivided attention and be able to progress at your own pace.

Book Ski School

Guides & Tours

When staying here, you’ll need to book your own Guides & Tours, which are a great way to discover Meribel whilst doing a number of fun activities. During the winter, if you are keen to go off-piste, booking a High Mountain Guide is strongly recommended. Not only do they know the best local spots, these highly trained and experienced individuals are very familiar with the surroundings and can provide loads of insights you won’t get by yourself, as well as helping to ensure your safety.

Book a Guide/Tour

Families & Kids

The hotel includes a kids club room which is open all day for children from four years upwards. This space is supervised from 16:00 onwards. It has plenty of space and offers activities for young children including colouring and workshops during the school holidays. There is also equipment for older children with table-football, pool table, video games and WiFi access.

Visitor comments

  • "I can confirm that Le Kaila is a wonderful hotel, with all the services you can think of: ski-in/ski-out, on the main street of Meribel, in-house ski-shop, a nice swimming pool and a spa, a refined restaurant and the level of amenities in the room exceeds the best 5-star hotels I've stayed at in the last years. But most of all, I appreciated the staff, in every department: concierge; restaurant; ski-shop; room-maids." - Trip Advisor
  • "Firstly - truly exceptional piste access and service on and off the slopes. Really perfect - there was a MAN TO TAKE OFF MY SKIS. Can't tell you how amazing that was." - Trip Advisor
  • "We were upgraded on arrival from a standard room to a suite!!! It was like being in a mini chalet, with a gorgeous view onto the mountains from the balcony. We were welcomed into the room with a member of staff who gave us a tour of the hotel beforehand, and had fresh fruit and marshmallows to welcome us in the suite. The suite was vast, with a big bathroom and enormous shower. It had lots of little nice touches including an really hot furry hot-water bottle in the bed!" - Trip Advisor
