Before we get to the swimming, we have to point out that the building is truly breathtaking and complete with sloping grass covered roof it is designed to fit right in with the mountain scenery. It’s actually a surprise they haven’t put a drag lift on the top and made it into a nursery slope!
In typical Courchevel style this is not just a standard swimming pool, it’s huge and luxurious with the main area split into two sections.
There is the “Aqualudique” area – a 25m swimming pool with lanes, leisure pool, outdoor leisure pool, diving pit, children’s pool, 45 m slide and rapids.
And the “Wellness” area (adults only) – pools with jets and bubbles, jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms, salt pool, exterior pool.
There are also are relaxation rooms for massage and beauty treatments (additional charges apply) such as reflexology, manicures, cryotherapy and facials.
In a separate area there is a surf pool for those mountain folk who feel that they have been separated from the sea for too long.
Aquamotion is situated in between Courchevel Village (1550) and Courchevel Moriond (1650), the regular Courchevel bus service will transport you right to the door (once an hour from La Tania).
The complex is open daily from 10am to 10pm during the winter season and will be open for 10 months of the year. An entry allows 3 hours to enjoy the facilities and is controlled with a wrist band.
For those that purchase Courchevel lift passes, one entry to Aquamotion (Aqualudique) is included during the duration of the lift pass. This perk of the Courchevel pass, which was added in 2018, is great if you think you might need to rest your legs for an afternoon. Just don’t forget to take your lift pass with you.
If you are going to buy a Three Valleys lift pass and know you will also go to Aquamotion, then consider the Three Valleys Wellness pass as this includes one entry to Aquamotion Wellness too (over 18’s), which we assume will be cheaper than buying the two passes individually (awaiting Aquamotion winter prices for 2019-20).
Aquamotion also has a pretty superb climbing wall (kids climbing mezzanine and sports wall and grotto) and even a reasonably priced gym for those that need more exercise than the slopes can offer!
