A 5-star hotel – Design Hotels Member
Nira conjures a modern idiom of luxury, born from the pursuit of excellence and a belief that perfection is only the foundation that we build on. To us, pleasure is not a state of being; it is the primordial purpose of the soul. We believe that exquisite travel and dining experiences are no longer dependant on superficial glamour and regimented operating procedures. There is a place for eclectic design and ever-so-subtle eroticism.
Increasingly, guests are looking for a sense of sincerity and integrity, with service that comes straight from the heart. To us, true hospitality is about ‘your way’, a touch of our hand and the passion that binds the two. It is about the creation of hedonistic havens, where all manner of whims and desires are indulged.
We favour a natural approach to hospitality, based on understanding, warm-heartedness and the occasional need for a place of sanctuary. Where abundant stimulation and relentless distraction has become intrinsic to many lives, the true luxury we offer is time and space. This more sensitive attitude to running hotels, resorts and restaurants stems from our spiritual and compassionate roots, born out of Asia.

Key sites and activities
Nira Montana is the perfect starting point to explore both: the Mont Blanc, Italy’s highest peak and a must-see for climbers and skiers; the nearby Gran Paradiso Natural Reserve which has saved steinboks from extinction; the spectacular Rutor waterfalls; elegant and historical Pré Saint Didier baths, dating back to the 1800s… Nordic skiing, heliskiing, free-riding and snow-kiting are popular around La Thuile and there are many opportunities for winter walks and guided snowshoe excursions. As the snow melts, skiers and boarders make way for mountain-bikers, walkers, rafters, canoeists and climbers.
The hotel facilities are decorated with white cubist stag’s heads and slender trunks of silver birch, which recalls the wall of forest –patterned wallpaper in the rooms.
Walls are clad with reclaimed timber from local farmhouses, the floors are wooden but fashioned from curved pieces that follow individual trees’ natural shapes.
