The ultimate winter escape

The Ultima Collection is all set to open its Courchevel property at end of this year. The collection features luxury residences in Geneva, Megève, Gstaad and Crans-Montana, and each of these residences come with their own clinic within the grounds, affording complete privacy to guests.

While the group’s largest clinic is located in Ultima Gstaad, each Ultima Clinic uses the best in technology to deliver exceptional treatments including detox, revitalisation, check-ups, botox, laser, cryolipolise, Platelet Rich Plaquettes (PRP), DNA test, radio frequency, cavitation, IPL and the like. Apart from aesthetic treatments, Ultima properties feature lavish spa and recreation facilities in partnership with La Prairie.

About one-third of their guests in the busy summer season come from the Middle East and are ultra high net worth individuals, mostly couples and young families. “We have a growing trend of multi-generation families with the chalets, more and more families bring the grand parents rather than – or in addition to nannies. We also have a serious amount of groups of friends travelling together,” says a spokesperson for the collection.

“Gstaad and Courchevel have the most demand in the Middle East, although our property in Crans Montana has had some big visits from the Middle East over the summer as well. We are seeing yearly growth from The Middle East, one of our most important feeder markets alonside Russia & surrounding regions, the UK, USA and China.”
