Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced today the opening of Hyatt Centric La Rosière, the first Hyatt Centric hotel in France and the first Hyatt ski resort in Europe. Located at an altitude of 1850 meters, the 69-room hotel boasts an unbeatable slope-side location, offering immediate access to ski lifts. Hyatt Centric La Rosière is operated by Sophos Hotels under a franchise agreement.
Hyatt Centric La Rosière brings the Hyatt Centric brand to the French Alps, creating a cosmopolitan vibe that invites exploration and discovery amongst guests who want to be in the center of the action.
“We are delighted to announce the opening of Hyatt Centric La Rosière,” said Yannick Aubry, General Manager of Hyatt Centric La Rosière. “The hotel is ideally located to provide guests with a launch pad to discover the best the region has to offer, whether that be the more than 160 kilometers of piste on our doorstep, or exploring the charms and hospitality of a traditional Savoyard mountain village.”
The hotel sits in the center of Franco-Italian La Rosière, a popular skiing destination in the Tarentaise Valley known for its dramatic landscape and close proximity to Courchevel, Val d’Isère and Les Arcs. The terrain surrounding the village is suitable for skiers of all abilities, boasting the region’s best snowfall and direct access to heli-skiing.
“We are thrilled to be part of the first Hyatt ski resort in Europe and we believe that Hyatt Centric La Rosière will cater guests who want to explore as well as families,” said Mr. Fernand Donnet, CEO of Sophos Hotels. “We look forward to welcoming guests and having them experience this beautiful destination.”
