Located in the La Massana area of Arinsal and close to the gondola that takes you up to the ski area. Hotel Magic Massana is an ideal base for you and your group if you're looking for good value for money on your ski holiday. The hotel features some great spa facilities as well as a traditional Irish Pub which is a popular après ski venue. 

Central location

Hotel Magic Massana is located in the centre of the village and getting yourself on the mountain in the morning could not be easier. The hotel is just 100 metres from the gondola which takes you directly up to the ski area and ski school meeting points. When you're not busy on the slopes, we'd recommend visiting Andorra's capital. Magic Massana is located a short 15 minute bus journey from Andorra La Vella where you'll find a huge range of shops, bars and restaurants - and the bus stop is just up the road from the hotel. To top it all off, La Massana is located in a valley with the hotel providing unbeatable panoramic views of the mountains. 

Spa and wellness facilities

The Hotel Magic Massana offers some fantastic wellness facilities for you to enjoy. Enjoy relaxing in the indoor pool, whirlpool, steam room and a sauna. You'll also have opportunities to book a beauty treatment or massage locally and there is a free fitness room for those of you who have not already exhausted yourselves on the slopes.

Ski storage included

The ski hire shop is located a short distance from the hotel and you can collect your equipment upon arrival ready to hit the slopes early the next morning. You also don't have to worry about finding somewhere to store your gear as the hotel has a ski and boot storage room with designated lockers included with your stay.

Arinsal, located towards Andorra’s western border with Spain, is part of Andorra’s Vallnord ski region which includes the Pal and Arinsal ski areas, with runs totalling almost 60 miles. There are two separate and very distinct villages - Arinsal is more lively with lots of night life, and La Massana which has more shops and restaurants. The resorts are 6 kilometres apart and connected by bus that runs until 9pm. Both Arinsal and La Massana are family-orientated and offer you access to some of the best-value skiing anywhere in Europe.

Skiing and snowboarding in Arinsal 

Between both villages there are plenty of well-prepared confidence building runs making it an ideal destination if you and your group are made up of beginners and intermediates. The radical ‘Freestyle Area’ also caters well for snowboarders. The season runs from December till mid-April and snow here is good until the end of season thanks to most of the slopes being covered by snow canons. 

Where to stay in Arinsal 

Arinsal is a very friendly village and is well suited to couples and families. We offer a range of hotels in both Arinsal and La Massana so you can choose the village that's best suited to you. Whether you simply want a base and plan on spending most of your time on the mountains or you'd like the whole package with access to wellness and relaxation areas, we're sure you'll find something that ticks all your boxes. 

Bars and restaurants in Arinsal

Throughout both villages, there are great international places to eat including some Argentinian steak houses, Mexican restaurants and pizzerias. There are also a selection of bars and Irish pubs, with most restaurants and bars being family friendly. Après ski is more lively in Arinsal than La Massana and one of the firm favourites is an open bar and club known as Surf which has live DJ performances as well as a restaurant area. 

Ski deals in Arinsal 

The Nord lift pass covers the local areas of Arinsal and Pal (La Massana) as well Ordino-Arcalis where you find good opportunities for snowboarding - don't worry when skiing between Arinsal and La Massana as free use of the ski bus that runs between the two villages is included with the pass.
