Cool lodge hotel with golden exterior crafted from Finnish wood on the spectacular Sierra Nevada slopes. This Alpine-style boutique hotel blends the charm of a traditional log cabin with contemporary designer elegance. Wake to views of the snow-capped Sierra Nevada from your luxurious room, decked out with fur throws, animal print fabrics by designer Andrew Martin and vintage ski prints. El Lodge offers everything from private lessons to a boot warming service and is only 50m from the Chairlift Parador 1. Have lunch at The Terrace, with ski-in ski-out access and admire the views while you sample fresh Mediterranean dishes. Afterwards, spend an afternoon at the spa, relax in the indoor pool or enjoy the heated outdoor pool, large sauna and a Finnish hot tub, where you can warm up in the fresh mountain air. As evening draws in, the open fires in The Lounge come to life. Get cozy with a board game and a glass of wine, or get dressed up and order cocktails in The Bar before dinner. Savoring the enticing cuisine served up in The Grill Restaurant is a blissful end to a day on the slopes. With 45 pistes and six off-piste routes on the doorstep of El Lodge, no two days of skiing will be the same. You can swap the snow for some sightseeing in just a thirty-minute journey and visit Granada, a city full of history and culture. El Lodge Ski and Spa is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
