Feel on top of the world at Les Arcs, a four-part resort perched up in the Tarantaise Valley – one of the French Alps’ highest ski regions. It sits in the heart of the aptly named Paradiski – a veritable skiing paradise that is one of the largest in the world. Offering hundreds of miles of uninterrupted slopes, Les Arcs links to Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne via a spectacular double-decker cable car, the Vanois Express.
Arcs 2000, so called due to its lofty elevation at over 2000 meters (6,560 feet), houses one of the resort’s latest upscale hotels – Taj-I Mah. Its name means “diamond of the moon,” and it’s easy to see why. This brand new establishment, elegantly designed in glass, wood and concrete, is the first five-star hotel in town. The gorgeous interiors make the most of the stunning interplay of light and shadows that reflect off the dazzling white snow and jagged peaks all around. Best of all, it offers ski-in, ski-out access right from your doorstep.
Overlooking the village, each Double room – Classic accommodation is kitted out in neutral hues, with burnt-orange accents and plenty of wood, as well as faux fur throws and cushions that add to the luxe feel.
Michelin-starred chef Éric Samson heads up the two exquisite eateries here, which promise to satisfy all your culinary desires. Le Diamant Noir is the fine-dining option, with an outdoor terrace boasting panoramic views almost as impressive as the food itself. For a more casual atmosphere, head to L’Atelier d’Eric.
After an active day, wind down in the 4,300-square-foot Carita et Cinq Mondes spa, boasting a panoramic indoor pool, a steam bath, a Jacuzzi, sensory showers and a solarium. Soothing massages and expert beauty treatments are also available. If you have any energy left, work up a sweat in the fitness center.
There’s an impressive variety of skiing in Les Arcs, with long cruising runs, great off-piste and one of the longest, most challenging runs in the Alps, which takes advanced skiers more than 4 miles down to Villaroger, a magnificent vertical descent of 7,500 feet. In Arc 2000, beginners will find an excellent place to learn, under the Plagnettes chair lift. The Paradiski ski domain has 84 drag lifts, 65 chair lifts and three cable cars, with an impressive 264 miles of runs. Snowboarders are well catered for, too – in fact, Les Arcs is said to be the home of snowboarding in Europe.
Taj-I Mah is located in the Arc 2000 ski resort, in the gorgeous French Alps. The resort is roughly two and half hours east of Lyon and about an hour from the Italian border. These impressive mountains – and this resort in particular – are home to some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world, not to mention some of the most breathtaking natural beauty found anywhere.
How to Get There
We’ve just returned from the Taj-I-Maj in Les Arc 2000 and we are still raving about the excellent standard of service,food and facilities at this hotel.
True we were blessed with wonderful weather and good snow conditions but the hotel was simply excellent and great value .
The position is unbeatable with fabulous piste and mountain views ,ski in and out
A truly exceptional ski shop facility enhanced by brilliant staff for which nothing was to much trouble.
We really enjoyed the spa facilities and used them every day after skiiing.
My wife and I have skied far and wide but this has been one of our most memorable trips.
Well done Taj -I Mah ,keep it up.
Professional and friendly staff made for a very pleasurable week in this excellent hotel. A special thank you to the guys in the ski shop who provided a wonderful service, the two sommeliers for their choices of wines, and a very helpful concierge.
The hotel is amazing...
Throw on your skis and off you go!
A few call outs ...
The guys in the ski shop were brilliant!
So friendly and very accommodating
Bar staff very friendly
One of the receptionist was so accommodating
Very pricy especially when there’s lots of choices in 2000 or 1950
Some of the staff were bordering on rude, might be a cultural thing but basic customer service for a five star hotel was a big miss with some of them
Name badges would be good so I could call out the great staff members!
Overall I’d highly recommend the hotel!
Perfect for any ski break!!
Photos are from our balcony... nice view to wake up to...!!
I am not a natural skier. So when my wife said lets take the kids skiing I was sceptical. My wife knows how fussy I am about hotels and given that I don't particularly like skiing my hopes weren't high. However, her choice of Hotel could not have been better. It is a beautiful place and the rooms are simple but very well appointed. We had a lower floor room which still had a view of the mountains and ski slopes but privacy was a very slight issue. The hotel staff were all lovely. Breakfast was very good although they seem to have a problem making enough scrambled eggs! The ski shop staff (within the hotel) are absolutely amazing. Polite, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. They have your ski's and equipment all ready for you every morning without fail and the slopes are right outside the door! Removing the hassle factor from skiing entirely, as this hotel does with style, makes a good holiday brilliant. There is a small cable car that takes you to numerous restaurants in the village below but in high season book them in advance!! I am now a skier and am not hesitating in taking my family back to the Taj-I Mah next year.... superb. Oh and the spa is awesome!!
After having a fabulous time in 2017, our party returned for another holiday, a little longer this time. We were certainly not disappointed again. Sandra who looked after us in the restaurant and could not have been more useful. The food was great and plentiful. The location of the hotel has to be one of the biggest drawers, which in turn offers some stunning views. Thank you Ta-I Mah.
