The Grand Hôtel du Soleil d’Or is a 5 star hotel in Megeve, one of the finest Alpine resorts, close to Mont Blanc, in France. The hotel first opened its doors in 1901 and is one of the oldest establishments in the resort. Located at the entrance to the legendary village, this iconic hotel is the willing guardian of Megeve’s very identity, flaunting its values and naturally reflecting the Millésime creed of a warm welcome and generous hospitality. While certain elements of past glory have been retained, so much more has been created, with a totally new take on hospitality and wellbeing: luxury hotel, private chalets, restaurant, chocolaterie, rooftop bar and spa.
There’s nothing standard about the spa either. It’s a real haven of happiness. A secret world of originality and elegance, enshrouded in freshness and designed to provide a pleasant, comforting moment to boost your energy. In a natural mineral decor full of water and vegetation, the pool, jacuzzi, sauna and hammam promise a beautiful prelude or a pleasant after thought to your treatment sessions, alone or with a partner. Carole Primat, Manager of Millésime’s Spa & Wellbeing division, has developed a whole range of treatments designed with you in mind. A signature mineral treatment with chocolate, custom massages with 100% plant oils containing pure extracts of your choice, facials and body treatments by Gemology, France’s leading brand of mineral cosmetics… And facing the mountains, the wellness and fitness area is designed to offer what matters most, with a TRX concept, two indoor bikes for virtual RPM sessions, and an area set aside for Yoga, Tai Chi and Qi Gong lessons… Greater wellbeing is all of this!
The Grand Hotel du Soleil d’Or is one of an exclusive collection of boutique hotels in France (the first in the mountains) owned by Millésime Hotels who follow the philosophy of the French “Art de vivre”: shared experience, self-indulgent pleasure and unforgettable memories. This can be found in each and any one of their hotels, all you have to do is choose your location and rest assured Millesime will provide an amazing boutique hotel for your holiday in France.
Discover the latest addition to the Millésime Hotel collection, the Grand Hotel du Soleil d’Or***** in Megève, one of the finest Alpine ski resorts. At the entrance to the village, a world of comfort and privilege awaits in this welcoming home away from home, completely renovated through a surprisingly original decoration. Discover an intimate and indulgent atmosphere, where you can relax and enjoy an exclusive panoramic lounge bar, restaurant and a chocolate shop for true authentics and gourmet pleasures. Enjoy as well, the spa with a full wellbeing program and bespoke massages such as the Signature Mineral Treatment…featuring Chocolate!
Each one of the 16 spacious rooms and 3 cosy private chalets, inspired by the chocolate theme and the history of the village, has its own distinct personality through customised decoration. They offer fabulous views of the historic old quarter and the surrounding mountains.
Every one of the 16 rooms and suites of the original building is decorated in its own unique style, with cosy alcoves and mountain views that give you a sense of freedom. The top floor pays tribute to the surrounding nature, while the three below it are decorated in tones of milk chocolate and caramel that wrap you in a comforting, chocolatey atmosphere. The variations are endless for these rooms and suites from 21m² to 39m² and the result is amazing and surprisingly original. You’d almost think this exquisite feeling of wellbeing that fills the building came from intoxicating aromas of cocoa and spice from the chocolate shop downstairs.
Adjoining the Grand Hôtel du Soleil d’Or, three luxuriously appointed and uniquely private chalets of deliciously vintage style tell a story of the past while offering their modern comforts. They each have 4 bedrooms with their own large bathrooms, in a layout that promises privacy and luxury.

Legend has it that Megève was originally named “Meztiva”, or “the town where you stay to eat”. As if Millésime needed another reason to make this its first mountain nest where you can enjoy generous dishes made from the most delicious, rigorously selected ingredients.
Sharing, togetherness, authenticity… these magic words become reality in the generous, unifying cuisine of our Chef. Mountain produce and the region’s typical dishes, subtly revisited and presented through a concept that’s close to the Millésime heart: the pleasure of sharing. Huge tables and intimate corners… Forget the clichés, here everybody feels at home.
On the ground floor, La Chocolaterie brings your inner child back to life. This little pleasure factory is key to the Grand Hôtel du Soleil d’Or, thanks to Jean-Paul Hévin and his outstanding creations. Discover a relaxing, heart-warming chocolate haven, built around two huge open fireplaces. Roll back the years and indulge in some childhood pleasures, real homemade chocolate, hot or cold, solid or liquid, in every conceivable shape or form to be enjoyed inside or outside on the terrace. One thing’s for sure, temptation is everywhere at La Chocolaterie.
Overlooking the village, enjoy fabulous views of the historic old quarter and surrounding mountains in a cosy lounge panorama roof top bar environment. Up there, Head Barman Adam Caron and his team create some exceptional house cocktails. Want to (re)discover a particular drink? Or try an alcohol-free cocktail? Our creative team are always up to the task. And if you get hungry, try a bar snack that you’ll have the privilege of enjoying along with a stunning view of the historical heart of Megève and the surrounding mountains. But the interior is just as spectacular, with a replica of the famous village fountain.
Original, dizzying… in just a few weeks, the buzz at the counter and the relaxing atmosphere of the lounge area have made the bar of the Grand Hôtel du Soleil d’Or the new place to be.
