Amidst the stunning Alps, in the Aosta valley, is the pretty little town called La Thuile. It is petite in size but its magnificence lies in the sheer beauty reflecting through the enchanting mountains.
A fantastic ski resort, La Thuile is set to host a leg of the women’s Alpine Skiing World Cup in February, 2016. It is a hub for winter sports as there are 160km long skiing pistes that stretch across the neighbouring country, France, as well as snowboarding and trekking facilities. The village enjoys peace and tranquil, making it one of the best places to ski unperturbed.
Besides the ascetic aura, luxury forms a major part of the town. Nira Montana, lying against the backdrop of Mont Blanc, exemplifies that luxury. You can ski all day and then relax your limbs at the spa, enjoy lavish Italian dinner cuisines and lazily gaze at the pristine Mont Blanc while sipping your morning coffee.
That, probably, is the reason why Nira Montana, which is a member of Design Hotels, has been awarded the prestigious ‘Luxury Design Hotel of the Year’ for 2016 by Luxury Travel Guide. Winners for awards by Luxury Travel Guide are chosen by their team of experts which travels across the globe to handpick the best among hotels, airlines, tour operators etc.
Nira Montana is the melting point of the rustic, mining village La Thuile and the ski town it has now become. By blending traditional features and modern design, it has developed into a unique symbol for La Thuile.
Giuseppe Artolli, General Manager of Nira Montana expressed his delight at the development, “We are elated to have been awarded Luxury Design Hotel of the Year. Nira Montana’s design is based on the valley’s traditional houses, with a contemporary Nira twist, designed to ensure complete care has been taken with the origins of materials used. It is this fresh positioning that has contributed to us winning this prestigious award.’
Nira Montana is a part of Shanti Hospitality, which is a subsidiary of global private equity firm C&C Alpha (CCAG) of which Bhanu Choudhrie is a Director, and is the newest addition to Nira Hotels & Resorts.
