The brand new Grand Hotel Cervino opens its doors this season, offering guests touches of luxury throughout their stay. Positioned in a tranquil area of the resort, the hotel's unique design feels as if it should be featured on Grand Designs. Not only do you get great views of the surrounding areas in the public spaces, but each room also looks out along the snowy valley or the incredible mountain range surrounding the hotel.
Being located at the foot of the Gran Becca does mean Cervinia centre is a bit of a trek but, fear not, as the hotel operate a shuttle service every day to both the lifts and resort centre up until half ten each evening, so getting around couldn't be easier. This is particularly handy if you want to check out the après scene in Cervinia. Options range from sophisticated wine bars hidden down the cobbled streets to bars located conveniently at the foot of the slopes ready to entertain. Expect flaming drinks and music that will get you up on the tables having plenty of fun.
Back at the hotel things are somewhat calmer. Nowhere more so than the hotel's impressive wellness area where you can enjoy great facilities such as the sauna and steam room or simply float around in the pool. Don't lounge about too long though, as you certainly won't want to miss the three-course evening meals that await you each day. If their sister hotel over in Courmayeur, (Grand Hotel Courmayeur Mont Blanc) is anything to go by, you’re in for a real treat. At the end of each day, enjoy chatting in the hotel bar and make the most of the local wines and drinks on offer.
