R Collection Hotels, a renowned family-owned Italian luxury hotel brand, has recently marked a significant milestone in its growth with the unveiling of two new boutique mountain hotels in Italy’s picturesque regions of La Thuile and Courmayeur. This expansion highlights the brand’s commitment to providing guests with exceptional boutique luxury accommodations in some of Italy’s most exclusive and scenic destinations.
Nestled along the northern border between Switzerland and France, the Montana Lodge & Spa in La Thuile and the Grand Hotel Courmayeur Mont Blanc in Courmayeur represent the latest additions to R Collection’s impressive portfolio. These 5-star boutique retreats are strategically located to offer guests breathtaking views of the peaks of Mont Blanc, blending seamlessly into the surrounding natural beauty with their harmonious design and architecture.
The Montana Lodge & Spa, managed by R Collection, features 55 elegantly designed rooms that combine contemporary style with a traditional Valdostano touch. Guests at the lodge can enjoy refined Italian cuisine at the Bistrot and the Ottavio Lounge, along with a selection of 300 wine labels in the cellar for intimate tastings. The lodge’s ERRE SPA stands out as a flagship feature, offering a range of amenities including an indoor heated pool, outdoor hot tub, sauna, Turkish bath, Vitarium bio sauna, a private spa area, and a gym equipped with Technogym equipment.
Meanwhile, the Grand Hotel Courmayeur, also managed and owned by the Collection, boasts 72 rooms enriched with contemporary furnishings. The hotel’s two polished food and beverage outlets, La Fourchette restaurant and the Equinox Lounge Bar, feature a terrace with stunning views of Mont Blanc.

These two new properties in La Thuile and Courmayeur are not just additions to the R Collection portfolio; they are a testament to the brand’s dedication to embracing and promoting the excellence and warm hospitality synonymous with Italian tradition. Ludovica Rocchi, Brand Director of R Collection Hotels, emphasizes this commitment to global standards of service and Italian tradition.
