Located in the La Massana area of Arinsal, Hotel Magic Ski is a great option for families looking for convenience and comfort. With its excellent location, attractive rooms and wellness facilities, this hotel offers excellent value for money.

Spa and wellness facilities

Make the most of the relaxation facilities Hotel Magic Ski has to offer. There is a wellness area including indoor heated swimming pool, a sauna, a steam room, a whirlpool and a fitness room (local charges apply). After you're warmed up and relaxed, head over to the hotel bar for a drink and a game of pool to round the evening off. 

Central location

Hotel Magic Ski places you right in the centre of the village with a range of restaurants and bars all within walking distance. There are also a few souvenir and ski shops dotted around the town for you to explore. If you'd prefer a wider selection, there is a bus stop located a 4 minutes' walk from the property that takes you towards the capital city, Andorra La Vella, where the shopping selection is large and prices are duty-free! You can also jump on the bus and head over to the main village of Arinsal which is only a short ride away.

Ski and snowboard

Skiing and snowboarding during your stay at Hotel Magic Ski couldn't be easier. Each room is allocated a storage locker in the heated ski and boot room free of charge so you won't have to worry about organising this yourself. Not only that, but the ski gondola is located directly behind the hotel and can be accessed via a set of stairs from the ski storage room. This means you'll be able to head straight up the mountain to the Pal ski area after breakfast, where you'll also find the ski school meeting points, and you'll have some great views on the way up too!

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.
