Sitting at the entrance to Arinsal, the St Gothard is a peaceful place to stay with some lovely scenery to enjoy. The resort runs a shuttle bus to the lifts as they're about 1km away, but it stops right outside and runs regularly throughout the day.


This hotel has all of the right ingredients for a relaxing ski holiday, including friendly staff, family friendly facilities and a lovely wellness area. There's also a cosy lounge with satellite TV for downtime as well, plus free Wi-Fi to stay connected. 



When it comes to relaxation, head straight to the sauna and then have a soak in the hot tub to sooth ski legs. If your muscles need a bit more pampering, treat yourself to a massage from the extensive menu. The hotel has a large restaurant and a friendly bar which makes for a nice spot to have a quiet evening in.

About the resort...

Arinsal is the perfect place for beginners and families as there are plenty of nursery slopes, a superb British-run ski and board school and plenty of après-ski activities. Even though there's only 63km of pistes, improvers, intermediates and even the advanced will be tested at points. Hop on a bus and head to nearby Arcalis for some fantastic off-piste and even a couloir or two.


Off the mountain, Arinsal is small and friendly with a good choice of restaurants, a few shops and several lively bars to choose from. There are also a smattering of late-night bars and discos for the night owls.



Off-slope activities are easy to get to. Amazing shopping (and virtually tax-free) in the nation's capital, Andorra La Vella is only a 10 minute bus ride away. Alternatively, you could relax in the thermal waters of Caldea, a lush indoor thermal water lagoon with a spa area that's easy to love.


Ski biking is definitely a unique activity to give a go - the equipment is, you guessed it, a mix of a bike and a pair of skis.
