Samoens has a good choice of hotels, chalets and apartments for rent, including some very smart ones with saunas and swimming pools. The Grand Massif Express lift is on the southern edge of the resort, so there is a trade-off between being close to this and the bars and restaurants in the centre of the Samoens. Alternatively you can stay up the mountain in Vercland or Samoens 1600. And if you can’t find what you want, it’s worth expanding your search to the neighbouring villages of Morillon and its slope-side suburb at Les Esserts.
