Named after Bhutan's iconic Tiger's Nest Temple, the four-storey lodge is designed to offer guests a tranquil mountain escape in elegant surroundings with dramatic 270° views of the Pennine Alps, including the famous Dent Blanche and Matterhorn peaks. Tiger's Nest is a luxury contemporary alpine lodge situated at 1600m in the east of Les 4 Vallées, Switzerland's most extensive ski area. This fully-staffed retreat offers access to some of Europe's best skiing, as well as being an idyllic summer base for sightseeing, hiking, mountain biking, shopping, golf, tennis and other pursuits. With five double bedrooms, Tiger's Nest is perfectly suited for two families or up to 10 adults.

The area offers superb and reliable snow conditions with six popular ski lifts within a 12-minute drive of the house. Tiger's Nest is situated outside the small village of Les Masses and minutes by car to the ski villages of Les Collons, Thyon and Veysonnez.

The lodge team - including a host, chef and driver/ski concierge – is there to delight and surprise their guests and to accommodate any specific requests.

They are no ordinary ski lodge. While they want guests to enjoy the informality, freedom and raw beauty of the mountains, they do not compromise on city luxuries. Tiger's Nest is about providing a high quality experience in one of the world's most magnificent natural landscapes.

Skiers can also access other parts of Les 4 Vallées — Nendaz, La Tzoumaz and Verbier. Further afield in the Valais region are nine resorts that reach over 3000m, including Arolla, Crans-Montana, Saas-Fee and Zermatt. All are within easy reach of Tiger's Nest.

Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server CHF 50 for a CHF 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.

We’re on call in case you need us and we provide a change of towels and bed linen during the week, but otherwise there no inclusions. 

A&K Concierge upgrade

For additional support, comfort and a slice of pampering why not upgrade to our A&K Concierge service. Included is an airport welcome on arrival with assistance for onward transportation; the services of an A&K Concierge – whose local knowledge provides you with invaluable assistance and recommendations; an orientation of the local area; a fully stocked drinks fridge; maid service; the ingredients for your first evening’s supper and breakfast delivered on the first morning of your stay.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.
