Hôtel MiL8 is a brand-new, chic alpine hotel, named after the altitude of the French ski resort of Avoriaz, set at 1,800m, making it the highest and most snow-sure village in the famed Portes du Soleil area.
Turning its back on the typical chalet style architecture to be found in most ski resorts, but in keeping with the general style of Avoriaz, this hotel could be termed as urban meet Alpine.
The hotel is housed in an architecturally striking property with chic interiors, on-trend cuisine and an organic spa.
With 42 spacious rooms and suites, Hôtel MiL8 offers an inviting, contemporary feel with shimmering fabrics and ultra-modern furnishings.
Due to the hotel’s architectural design, each room is individual, clad in light birch wood, reflecting the local, natural, alpine environment.
Parisian interior designers Catherine and Jérôme Clermont from Atelier Obermant have mirrored the hotel’s architecture, which plays on the contrast between curves and right angles and the combination of materials such as warm wood, leather and wool, and raw, urban concrete and steel.
The design of Hôtel Mil8 is inspired by the incredible surrounding architectural geometry.
Renowned local architect Hervé Marullaz has created a butterfly-shaped structure that is at once in keeping and unique.
Like a fan adorned with spacious balconies, the design allows guests stunning, panoramic views over the snow-topped roofs and peaks of this charming village resort.
The hotel’s silver-grey larch façade blends with the traditional wooden tiles that characterise the facades and roofs of Avoriaz.
The glass-fronted wellness centre is designed across four levels so that each space allows guests a breath-taking view of the resort and beyond and includes an infinity pool, sauna, gym and massage room.
Hôtel MiL8 partners with organic skincare brand SNÖ eternelle, created by Olympic Silver medallist skier Raphaëlle Monod, based on exceptional Nordic organic and active ingredients.
The hotel has a charming cosy lobby space with vast leather sofas and armchairs by the central open fireplace, perfect for relaxing.
Hôtel MiL8’s two restaurants include one at piste level for lunchtime skiers, while the ground floor space is a more intimate place for dinner, enhanced with wood-clad walls and discreet lighting.
Geared for families and for business, groups can gather in the stylish setting of the hotel’s 46m2 meeting space, with plenty of natural daylight and direct access to a private terrace, which is complemented by team building activities within the resort.
Hôtel MiL8 partners with ESF ski school to organise ski lessons and ski hire for guests.
The hotel is two hour’s drive from Geneva International Airport and 90 minutes from Geneva train station.
