Yes, it’s a hotel, but so what? Does that prevent you, the native, from going there? Well, no! Do you know why? Because their restaurant, Akashon, is open to everyone and is worth a visit. As for the Nuxe Spa, it’s not just for hotel residents. And if you spend the night there? Yes, why not? Otherwise, welcome family and friends who come to visit you. In short, here are 3 reasons to go to the Heliopic hotel in Chamonix center. After reading this, there will be no excuse not to go.
1. A romantic dinner at Akashon, the hotel’s intimate restaurant
To conclude or score points in love, I strongly advise you to go and dine at Akashon. This discreet restaurant, almost hidden in the heart of the Heliopic Hotel, is open to all and deserves that I reveal its secrets.
A refined cuisine
Intimate and romantic as one could wish, the hotel’s restaurant has been awarded a Bib gourmand by the Michelin Guide. Secret number 1: the dishes are refined and have a good quality-price ratio.
Well hidden in the heart of the hotel, dining at Akashon is galvanizing. You feel like you’re revealing a secret place to the one who accompanies you. This semi-gastronomic restaurant is so intimate! Yet, it is not “locked” in the hotel, it is open to a breathtaking view. Secret #2: At the table, the window overlooks Mont Blanc, as does its magnificent terrace.
Bib Gourmand means good value for money
Yes, but a restaurant this chic must cost a fortune! Secret n° 3 : At Akashon, you can make your taste buds go crazy for 32 € with the starter – main course – dessert menu. But hey, you might as well treat yourself when you go to such a place! I say, it would be a shame not to fall for the Gourmet Menu and its food and wine pairing at 85 €. There you will really score points…
A starred pastry chef
Come on, one last secret to convince you to dine in the intimate restaurant of Heliopic. The fabulous desserts are signed Cyril Gérard, pastry chef (starred when he was at the Bois Prin in Chamonix).
Are you more relaxed than gastronomic? Think of the sublime spa at the Heliopic!
2. A relaxing break combining a Nuxe® treatment and access to the Spa in Chamonix
Personally, I love the fragrances of the French brand Nuxe®. So to treat yourself to a treatment with these quality cosmetics, imagine the happiness!
The NUXE Spa at the Heliopic Hotel & Spa is freely accessible to hotel guests. But what about outsiders? Do you want me to tell you another secret? Well, for every 45-minute treatment or massage you book, you get 1 hour of access to the spa.
