Set in the heart of Courchevel 1850, Six Senses Residences Courchevel is a series of spacious, fully serviced apartments and penthouses perfectly placed for both ski and après-ski. Its world-renowned spa and wellness club is present and correct, and there’s a modern Japanese restaurant, a lift-side lodge at the Croisette (to avoid lurching about in boots), an outdoor hot tub for mountain marvelling, and a dedicated team on hand to cater to any possible whim.

In the know
Also need to know:
Most of the communal areas are accessible by lift, and there are some apartments that are suitable for wheelchair users.
The Savoie slopes are right outside – you’ll need your salopettes, ski jackets (bonus points for Moncler), goggles and thermals. If you forget anything, don't worry as the Residence has an on-site ski shop with a tailored service.
Ditch the salopettes and slip into something less cumbersome.
Mr and Mrs Smith reviews
Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this apartment-style hotel in France and unpacked their sunglasses and salopettes, a full account of their ski break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Six Senses Residences Courchevel…
Courchevel 1850 is one of the French Alps’ most fabulous resorts (thank you, Russian oligarchs) and, with the arrival of Thai hotel group Six Senses, it just got flashier. The chalet has a series of apartments, some of which have four bedrooms and several slope-facing terraces, and 10 of which are split-level penthouses. Post-piste limbs will be pleased to see a Six Senses Spa has come along for the ride – this one has an outdoor hot tub, two saunas and a hefty treatment list for soothing sore muscles. This outpost of the Sumosan restaurant (beloved by billionaires the world over, from Berlin to London, Moscow and Montenegro) makes the Alps seem more like Mount Fuji, with kimono-covered cushions, an origami chandelier and sculptures of the Sumosan Sumo mascot appearing throughout the restaurant in ski gear. The four connected buildings aren’t quite ski-in, ski-out, but since when was that a problem when there’s a concierge crack team to hand? The lodge by the lifts is where all your equipment is kept, with staff ready to snap you out of your ski boots if bending down is suddenly too difficult. The concierge can even stock your fridge for you before you arrive, and warm your boots up before you put them on. You’re in the Savoie Alps but, with hospitality and service like this, it may as well be Asia.

Favoured by billionaires from Moscow to Montenegro, sushi joint Sumosan now has a snow-side setting on the slopes of Courchevel. The Japanese menu includes signature sushi and sashimi favourites, with a few curveballs: black-caviar-rice pizza, furikake-crusted lamb and maki rolls (squid with ink powder; unagi with candyfloss sauce) set alight table-side.
Opt for a table near the windows and the mountains outside may as well be Mount Fuji.
Breakfast hours are 7am to 10am; dinner service is between 7.30pm and midnight. The bar keeps the same hours.
Sumosan has a bar for après-ski apéritifs, where you can soak up the cocktails with some superb sushi.
