Sitting at the entrance to Arinsal, the St Gothard is a peaceful place to stay with some lovely scenery to enjoy. The hotel runs its own shuttle bus to the lifts as they're about 1km away, but the hotel and resort buses both run 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, and for families, the hotel's professional entertainment team have weekly afternoon and evening shows to jazz up your stay. There's a games room for downtime as well, plus free Wi-Fi to stay connected. 

 

 

When it comes to relaxation, head straight to the sauna and 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 two restaurants 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 advamced will be test 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 20 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.
