The Ushuaia has been completely renovated and refurbished to create a modern mountain hotel in an enviable ski-in, ski-out location, the only one in the resort! There's great attention to detail and plenty of modern twists on a classic mountain theme. 

 

An added bonus, all guests over 18 can join our free Neilson Mountain Experts ski guiding and coaching service throughout the week. Fully qualified instructors will guide you around the slopes whilst giving tips on your technique at the same time (if you want it).

 

The rooms are incredibly spacious and comfortably sleep up to four people, but it's the bar and lounge area that are the heart of the hotel giving you the ideal place to relax after a day on the slopes. Parents and younger guests alike will love the kid's play area and the slopeside terrace is a hot spot for lunch and après ski.

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 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.
