Every captain needs a first mate. And at Virgin Voyages, the adults-only cruise line set to debut in 2020, its second-in-command will be none other than travel agents.
TORONTO — Set to open in late 2017 just 44 miles from Geneva International Airport is Four Seasons Hotel, Megève, Four Seasons’ third destination in France.
Opening in time for the 2018 winter ski season, the 55-room property is Megève’s first hotel to offer direct access to the Mont d’Arbois slopes and is being billed as a preeminent skier’s paradise with over 130 groomed Alpine runs. It will be nestled into the base of Mont d’Arbois’ mountainside, creating a luxurious haven for skiers looking for ski in/ski out directly on the Alpine range.
Within the village of Mont d’Arbois, a collection of existing chalets will be renovated prior to reopening as a Four Seasons hotel, offering guests a second destination in the historic ski village. In addition to the chalet and hotel, Four Seasons will also manage the 18-hole Golf du Mont D’Arbois course designed by Sir Henry Cotton, and four dining offerings throughout the two hotels.
Four Seasons Hotel, Megève is a joint venture between Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and Edmond de Rothschild Heritage, a lifestyle company owned by Benjamin and Ariane de Rothschild. Commenting on the new development, Ariane said, “This partnership will bring new dimensions not only to our hospitality at Mont d’Arbois but also to the town of Megève. The professionalism, international network and longstanding experience of Four Seasons in the hospitality industry are second to none, and I am particularly proud that the Hotel and Chalet in Megève will be Four Seasons first luxury mountain destination in Europe.”
Four Seasons Hotel, Megève and the Chalet du Mont d’Arbois, Megève, A Four Seasons Hotel will mark the third Four Seasons destination in France, joining the legendary Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris and Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel in the French Riviera. The Hotel will be the fifth ski destination in the company’s portfolio, joining Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail, Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe and Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole.
