Chalet Hotel Alba
Sleeps up to 66 (50 + 16)
The Alba has charming communal rooms, with the lounge and bar attractively furnished with comfy seating and a fireplace. This provides the perfect setting for a refreshing après-ski drink, and for enjoying evening apéritifs and canapés.
The dining room has picture windows overlooking the large sun-terrace, which in turn looks out over the Doron slopes, the Rond Point and across the scenic Méribel valley.
The Alba also has its own adult-only wellness area on the lower ground floor, with a sauna, steam-room and whirlpool spa bath affording parents a relaxing haven in which to unwind.
Our staff provide a hot and cold buffet breakfast, afternoon tea and our 'Culinary Choice' evening menu, whilst our Baby-Listening/Child-Patrol Service, running till 11pm, allows parents to relax in good company over coffee and liqueurs after dining. Children's High Tea is served at 5.15pm and supervised by our staff till 6pm.

The Chalet Hotel Alba has the ultimate location as it is ski in/ski out in the Rond Point area of Meribel. The main piste is just across the road so access to the skiing is really easy.
Coming back to the chalet hotel is even easier as there is a ski bridge that takes you practically back to the ski door.
There is a ski hire shop right below the Alba so sorting out ski and board hire is also an easy job. There are plenty of apres ski venues such as the Rond Point that are close by.
The centre of Meribel is easily accessible by the local ski bus. This runs through until about 11:45pm.
- Hot Tub
- Ski in / Ski out
- Close to Slopes / Lift
- Good for Groups
The staff in the Chalet Hotel Alba will make sure that you are set up for the day with a skiers' buffet breakfast to get you going. Afternoon tea will be set up to welcome you 'home', and 4- or 5-course evening meals with wine and coffee are served to complete the evening 5 days a week.
There are always high standards of cuisine, and the staff are trained extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you enjoy every meal in the chalet.
Catering is Breakfasts on 7 mornings, afternoon tea on 5 days and evening meal with wine on 5 of the nights
In all our properties breakfast is served buffet-style with a selection of cold options including a choice of cereals or porridge, cold meats, cheese and preserves, and bread (an croissants in France) fruit juices, tea and coffee and a cooked breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs and beans.
On the two staff nights off per week, a continental style breakfast is laid out for you to help yourselves in all chalets whilst it is served as a buffet in our Chalet Hotels.
Our Chalet Hotel teams can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge.
Every day, apart from two one staff days off, a home-baked cake and tea and coffee making facilities are laid out for you to help yourself when you return from the slopes.
5.30pm High Tea
High Tea at 5:30pm is served as a 2 course evening meal to all children up to 7 years old (and to 8-12 year olds if preferred). Parents are asked to accompany their children under 3, whilst 3-12 year olds are supervised by our childcare team.
7.30pm Adult Dinner
Adult dinner at 7:30pm begins with canapés with a prosecco apéritif, followed by a choice of appetiser, main course and either dessert or local cheese, accompanied by a choice of red, white and rose wine, and culminating with tea or coffee.
There is a supplement of £39 for children aged 8-13 joining adults at the 7.30 pm dinner service.
Adults (and any children aged 8 and over joining the adults) are asked to choose their starter and main course at breakfast time, and there's always a vegetarian daily option too. Please note that children will be eating the adult menu choices if they choose to eat at 7.30pm.
Dinner on staff day off for all guests
On the staff night(s) off you and your family have the opportunity to eat out in one of the local restaurants. Our staff will be happy to help with recommendations and bookings if you wish. If you would prefer, you can always order in a takeaway pizza, and have a relaxing evening in.
We always prepare a vegetarian main course in our Chalet Hotels and can cater for vegetarians staying in both our Xtra and regular chalets, as well as any other specific dietary requirements in all our properties, if we are advised in advance.
Special diets can be accommodated at a cost of £35 per person per week. Please notify us of your dietary needs at the time of booking. Our Chalet Hosts will discuss your dietary requirements with you upon arrival to the Chalet or Chalet Hotel.
