Channeling Old World French aristocracy in an updated and alluring — not old-fashioned and stuffy — way, this très chic contemporary boutique property has just 30 suites and emanates a sweetly romantic and very intimate vibe. From the cozy ski lodge–style decor to the wine cellar bar to the stellar service from the moment you walk through the door, this award-winning small hotel’s focus is dedicated to pleasing and pampering guests.
Bed and Bath
Suites are more than generous in size, and the design is luxury ski chalet — think lots of wood, stucco and stone. The lake and mountain views, which can be taken in through screened French patio doors that open onto either a balcony or terrace, are another highlight. So are the wood-burning fireplaces, which not only supply physical warmth, they up the cozy ski chalet romantic ante. Baths are equally heavenly, with heated marble floors, rain showers and deep sunken spa tubs. The Aveda products are another classy touch.
On three acres sloping down to Lake Tremblant, the manicured grounds here are as visually pleasing as the lavish interior. Whirlpool hot tubs and a seasonal infinity pool front the lake, offering a chance to soak in the deep blue vistas. If your body aches from a day on the mountain, head to Spa Sans Sabots, also located lakeside, which offers a delicious list of ultra-relaxing treatments. The house restaurant, Restaurant La Quintessence, is one of only 25 AAA 4-Diamond restaurants in Quebec; it focuses on regional specialties and organic herbs plucked from the chef’s personal garden. If you’d rather just have a glass of vino, try the less formal wine bar. It has a good selection of wines by the glass, plus a lengthy port and scotch list. Guests can also ask the sommelier for a tour the impressive 60-foot-long exposed wine cellar, which boasts nearly 4,000 bottles, and to sample a few house favorites in the adjacent tasting room.
How to Get There
Love this hotel!
I usually that in a suite and I love everything about it! the bathtub is exactly what i need after traveling the distance.
This hotel is so wonderful and worth every penny. We had an in room massage with a fire lit and it couldn't be more relaxing and romantic!
Can't wait to go back!
We enjoyed our stay of three nights at this hotel. We had two of the entry level suites but they were still huge and well equipped. The views from the spacious balconies were beautiful and we very much enjoyed the outdoor pool. Also swam in the lake from the pontoon which was nice. Access to the centre of the resort was incredibly easy. We ate twice in the restaurant for dinner and eating on the outdoor terrace watching the sun set over the lake was a memorable experience. Staff were generally very professional and helpful. Special mention to the door guys/valets. Very good at their jobs.
So why not 5 stars. Well the hotel is now in need of some refurbishment. The carpets in the suites didn’t feel the freshest. Biggest issue for us was the breakfast. It was included in our rate at time of booking but was very disappointing. The basic selection was poor and what little there was was not properly replaced. Lots of empty dishes. The poor man trying to work the egg station was under huge pressure and couldn’t cope with the volume of requests. Worst thing was being asked to pay $5 extra for fresh orange. Come on guys, when you are paying $500 for a room, you do not expect this. Maid service fine but very late in the day, our rooms were still being made up late in the afternoon.
So a slightly disappointing experience in what could and should be a special 5 star resort in a beautiful setting
This is truly a 5 star experience we arrived at the hotel and were greeted by name, our luggage was unloaded instantly and we were instantly escorted to take a seat at the reception desk. Where we were immediately checked in and then escorted to our suite and given a grand tour. This was just the first 10 minutes. Staff was all extremely professional, detail oriented and friendly, and I mean everybody! Our suite was comfortable, welcoming yet elegant. It was equipped with such rare amenities like radiant heat flooring in the bathroom, a bubbler stand-alone tub, and an actual wood burning fireplace that was ready to go. The view from our room had an unobstructed view of the lake and surrounding mountains! While this is probably suited for a separate review the dinner in the restaurant may have been of the best meals my wife and I have ever enjoyed!
