This magnificent ski lodge is part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group so offers nothing short of an outstanding experience for all its guests.
With a gabled roof and golden exterior crafted from Finnish wood, El Lodge is an enchanting Alpine-style boutique retreat in Sierra Nevada’s fairytale landscape. Cosily kitted out with vintage ski posters, antler chandeliers and animal prints by designer Andrew Martin, the contemporary interiors redefine log cabin luxury. Inside and out, it’s a haven for skiers. El Lodge offers everything from private lessons, a fun-filled Kid's Club to a boot warming service – pairing an exhilarating setting with exceptional service. Outside, you can enjoy après-ski on the Sun Deck, with ski-in ski-out access. Or warm up in the hotel spa’s heated pools, sauna and steam baths – complete with an outdoor terrace featuring a stunning mountain backdrop. Evenings are made for cocktails beside the fire in the Lounge and fine-dining cuisine in The Grill Restaurant. After dinner, retire to the inviting warmth of your room or suite to plan tomorrow’s adventures. 45 pistes and six off-piste ski runs surround the hotel, and Chairlift Parador 1 is just 50m from the front door. But there’s more to Sierra Nevada than snow. Swap the slopes for a spot of sightseeing and head to Granada. A thirty-minute journey could see you taking in the city’s fascinating history and culture, from the majestic Alhambra to tiny flamenco bars. You'll be staying in a luxurious Junior Suite which is one of the best rooms in the hotel and be treated to breakfast each morning and dinner and wine in the hotel restaurant on one evening. With outstanding service and an amazing location it's going to be an unforgettable getaway!
