El Lodge Ski and Spa

Magical mountain views and slope-side style in this Sierra Nevada ski retreat

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.

Perfect Ski Retreat

Perfect ski retreat in Sierra Nevada. Great luxury hotel in a fantastic setting with great facilities and staff. Outdoor pool is great and the restaurant serves good food for both breakfast and dinner. Would highly recommend and can't wait to return.

El Lodge is like a beautiful boutique hotel in Aspen but located in wonderful Sierra Nevada Spain.

We have been staying at El Lodge since when it first opened. The staff is like family, and the service, facilities, and comfort are an experience you will not find anywhere else in Sierra Nevada. It has the best location directly on the slopes where you can ski in and out. Along with a restaurant with Read more[SPLIT]Read lesssome of the best food in the area. The outdoor cafe with a live DJ for entertainment gives it a vibe like South Miami but on the slopes. Also, the heated outdoor pool with a glass sauna and hot tub overlooking the snow-covered mountains is unforgettable. Whether you want to enjoy skiing or just a relaxed day off the slopes, no other place in the area can come anywhere close to what it offers. Some unforgettable moments are enjoying cheese fondue with some hot red wine with family and friends during an afternoon break from skiing and then watching shooting stars at night in the heated outdoor pool and hot tub. El Lodge is fantastic for couples and families alike and is its own jewel.

An excellent hotel, wonderful service and ideal location for ski in and out & sun terraces are great

We enjoyed everything about the hotel, great staff and service, wonderful pre dinner drinks and a superb restaurant. The ski facilities are first class, true ski in/out plus a SPA for relaxation later. Nothing too much trouble.

Best lodging in Sierra Nevada on the ski slopes

Our family has been coming to El Lodge for several years now, and we find it the perfect winter home on the ski slopes. When we arrive, we feel like we have come home to our friends.

Fabulous Hotel

We had another superb stay at El Lodge, this time in the Cabana for 3 nights, which is an excellent location for larger groups with children.

El Lodge is by far the best place to stay in Sierra Nevada

The best boutique hotel in Sierra Nevada!

The best boutique hotel in Sierra Nevada! Start off the decor along with its location directly along the ski slopes and its wonderful facilities are second to none in the area. An on location ski shop with friendly staff where you can ski right out the doorway. A restaurant on the sun deck outside with Read more[SPLIT]Read lessglorious views. And later on coming off the slopes enjoying the sauna, hot tub or heated outdoor pool along with the indoor swimming pool is absolutely wonderful! Not to mention the first class spa and fitness center. Equally for the kids it has a wonderful game room for them to relax in.

With roaring fires, snug leather chesterfields and a library of games and movies, it’s ideal for winding down before bed.

Settle into one of our leather Chesterfield sofas with a Bourbon-infused Hot Toddy by the fireplace as you take on a game of backgammon with your closest friends. A central pool table- vintage arcade games and one of the most well-rounded and creative cocktail menus in Sierra Nevada make this one of the hidden gems of El Lodge. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Reserved exclusively for adults after 9pm.
