Lifts/Pistes nearby

Skiers staying in Les Allues can easily access the main Méribel lifts at la Chadanne in two ways. The Olympe gondola lift runs throughout the day, with a 15 minute journey time. The free Méribel bus service, Meribus, also reaches the Chaudanne in 15 minutes, and runs until later in the evening. A long, easy red run, called Villages, descends into Les Allues. This attractive piste runs past picturesque hamlets, but tends to close before the end of the season owning to its relatively low altitude.

Nightlife nearby

In the centre of the village, British-run La Tsaretta Bar offers lively apres-ski with music, live bands and sports broadcasts. For a more French experience, the bar at la Croix Jean-Claude Hotel in the main street is an authentic village bar filled with characterful locals.

Book My Childcare


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 My 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 My 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 My 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.

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
