Hotel is in a great position for ski in ski out. Although Les Arcs 2000 overall is charmless and 1950 is much nicer. The hotel had its own ski shop where you leave your skis and boots each night and the guys in there are fantastic, very helpful, polite and accommodating. The Room was spacious with a mountain view, A lovely bathroom and separate toilet. Tea coffee fridge TV etc and a king size comfortable bed.
Spa area was also nice. All the staff were lovely. Entertainment in the smart bar most nights with 1st class guitarist/singer just a shame more guests didn’t join them probably due to the cost of drinks ie €16 for a G&t or cocktails.
Restaurant was very nice and breakfast was very good. The only downside was the evening meal. Not what you really want after a hard days skiing. For a 5* hotel the choice was poor. Each night was a Luke warm soup followed by a second and third course of just 2 choices based on French fine dining and never accompanied by vegetables. No vegetarian options at all. My wife didn’t want either of the 2nd course one night and was bought out a bowl of just lettuce, no dressing, just dry lettuce. You end up filling up on generous offers of bread and the excellent sweet buffet. You can also eat in the downstairs grill restaurant on one night where you have a choice of burgers, steak, salmon etc After 3 days we ate out after our Inghams rep arranged for the hotel to refund the cost of the evening meal so fair play to them both.
If they could perhaps offer a better choice of food including some vegi options the hotel would get a 5* review and others said the same.

We loved our stay in the Koh-I Nor in Val Thorens a couple of years ago, so this year we decided to try their other hotel Taj-I Mah in Les Arc. Prior to our arrival, there was already a very pleasant communication with the hotel. Whether it was for the reservation of our parking space or arranging the ski passes, everything went smoothly. On arrival, we were received very hospitably and enthusiastically helped by two guys with unloading our car. Rooms are very large compared to the other 5 or 4 star hotels in the region. Rooms are well decorated and equipped with comfortable beds; the bathroom has a separate bath and shower. In the hall, there is a separate toilet. Our room had a balcony facing the Arc 2000 square. The hotel has a nice bar with a fireplace and during our stay live music in the evening. After skiing, you can relax in the sauna or swimming pool or enjoy a massage. In the morning your skis are put outside by the friendly people of the ski shop. You can ski directly to the lift, and in the evening you can ski right up to the door.
You really get the chance to relax in this hotel. Thanks to everyone for a pleasant stay.

Location (and resort arc2000 itself) is perfect for ski in and ski out exprience if the weather allows. Mountain views from upper floor rooms are just amazing.

The hotel is located just in front of the kids ski school area that is incredibly convenient if you have young skiers. Skishop is in the hotel has new equipment and also serves as the ski-room (so you even get you skis brought outside for you :)

We liked the half-bord option, sophisticated cuisine for dinner, options change every day. Kids menu is also good. Made life so much easier...

It you stay for Christmas when there should be fireworks, as a lifehack is to watch the fireworks while in jacuzzi as it faces are behind the glass window where you can see it. Quite fun!

The reception team is very helpful and efficient! Everything was easily dealt with (from booking ski lessons, ski passes, restaurants, receiving parcels and even sending postcards).

Special thanks for arranging delivery of the suitcase we forgot in the hotel to us by post!! Potential headache was luckily avoided :))

3 star experience for 5 star prices and rating. We came here 3 years ago and even then it slightly missed the mark but the place has gone way downhill since then. Rooms are relatively comfortable with great views but cleaning service is patchy. Restaurant is a chaotic and disorganised mess with long waits for food and you’ll as 3 times before you get anything. The ski shop is great and the cocktails, at least, are top notch. They have no real competition in the area so I just think they think they can get away with it. Totally get that the last 2 years have been tough but since returning to travelling I’ve seen most top end places have found ways to get their act together. But not here… sadly

We spent 6 days in Taj I Mah during Christmas Period. We had connecting rooms with perfect south view on the mountains and the slopes. The sauna, Jacuzzi and pool after a day skiing were fantastic and helped relaxing before the next day skiing. The only thing we did not like is the fact we have been imposed a half board dinner in the Diamond Noir Gastronomic restaurant which is not adapted for the 13 and 6 years kids! we finally went to the l’atelier restaurant instead. I think families with kids should have the option of selecting B&B only.

Overall a good hotel but with pros and cons:

Pros: superb location with ski-in and ski-out, with good storage facilities for ski equipment. Fantastic views from the room. Facilities are excellent and include heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. The staff were good and helpful.

Cons: we were disappointed by the food in terms of selection. The room is fitted with a sensor light at the entrance which goes on everytime you go to the toilet which is separate from the bathroom. So, if you need to visit the loo during the night, you will wake up whoever sharing the room with you. The cafe certainly was not anything close to 5 stars! Service was slow and we had to ask for simple thing like salt and pepper, and condiments.

Great location for ski in and out. Rooms very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Staff all very friendly and service was good. We had half board option and the 4 course dinner in main restaurant was always very good. We ate in the Bistro on a couple of nights and it was good too although the half board allowance didn’t cover the cost of our meal in full there - understandably so as there were nice steaks, burgers and duck that you would would expect to pay a bit more for.

Les Arcs/la Plagne perhaps don’t have the reputation of the 3 valley villages or Val D’isere but we thought the skiing was excellent and this hotel is a great place to stay.

We loved the Taj I Mah, the bedrooms are superb! The position is excellent. Immaculate, clean and tidy. The staff at reception were always helpful. The staff in the ski shop were extremely welcoming and jolly and helpful. Their service was quick and extremely efficient.

The breakfast offering is broad and of good quality. The evening meal is a little hit and miss, two out of seven of the half board meals were not to our taste, but overall the quality of food and service was good.

Our only negative comment is regarding the two male staff at the cocktail bar. They were unfriendly to say the least. The cocktails were very good but whilst making them there was a lack of interaction with the customers at the bar. However this was not the case for the two female bar staff who were always interested in how your day had been. The atmosphere of the bar itself felt quite serious, not much of an apres ski atmosphere. However each evening they had entertainment from 7pm, usually a very talented singer, the only problem with this is that all the guests were in the restaurant dining, so often the artists were singing to themselves!

One other thing to mention is that rooms that overlook the lift that runs passengers down to 1950 are quite noisy until 11.30pm - rooms 212/214. This didn't bother us too much as we were tired from a long day skiing and so were easy to sleep.

We would definitely return to the Taj I Mah. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

We have just returned from a superb week’s skiing staying in the Taj-I Mah. The hotel and our room were spotless with all covid rules in operation. We felt very secure not only around the hotel but in the uncrowded dining room and lounge. The hotel itself is everything anyone could wish for. The room had wonderful mountain views. You could watch the sun rising over the mountain tops and from the balcony setting late afternoon. Returning from skiing cakes and biscuits were provided which we greatly enjoyed sitting in comfort on the terrace, with a beer. In the evenings there was always a cosy log burning fire in the lounge to relax beside with a drink.
On arrival we were warmly greeted, shown to reception and cases taken to our room. The reception desk staff were very helpful, welcoming and made us feel valued. EVERY member of staff always greeted us with a smile which gave the hotel a quiet relaxed atmosphere. The ski shop staff were most helpful, efficient and fun to be with. As were the bar staff. My 75th birthday was recognised by Ludovic in the dining room and a member of the bar staff. A gesture I much appreciated.
The location of the hotel could not be bettered with full unhindered mountain views and sun facing all day. You can literally ski back to the terrace and only about a dozen paces from the piste. We had a minor issue which we raised with the director. She was very understanding, sympathetic and supportive. By the time we returned from skiing the problem was fixed and in no way spoilt our time at Taj-Mah. The menu might not be everyone’s first choice but the quality of food, the way it was presented and served could not be faulted. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice.
Apart from the dinner menu there is nothing I would wish to change. We plan to return next year and for many reasons highly recommend the hotel. ‘Thank you ‘to everyone for looking after us, tolerating my French, and making our holiday so special. Until next year … ‘Aurevoir’. Robert and Joyce

The Taj is in an excellent position, the rooms are fabulous and the spa good if a little depressing. Everyone is perfectly nice, they just don't seem pleased to see you or want to serve you that much which is not what is expected in a 5* hotel, with a few notable receptions especially the porter who helped us to our car via the garage. We went half-board which was a great mistake, I would recommend having dinner in the numerous excellent restaurants, like Le Savoy next door. While the breakfast is ok we couldn't recommend the dinner at the Black Diamond. To the extent we ate mostly in the bistro where the ambience was much better and the food was delicious but, again, the service was rather shambolic. For example, we were never given the table we requested and on the third night of going there I waited for over an hour for my medium cooked burger only to have to send it back as it was raw in the middle. It is just a shame as it could be so good, but is let down by poor service and disappointing food in the Black Diamond.
