Hotel Grifone has a quiet location near the Campolongo pass. It's a beautifully designed hotel between the resorts Arabba and Corvara, surrounded by the spectacular Dolomite mountains. You can be sure of a great holiday here with spacious rooms and mountain views from the balcony.

Free Shuttle Bus

For those who want to be the first on the slopes, jump on hotel's free shuttle bus from 8.30am. You'll be taken directly to the Mont Cherz lift, which leads straight onto the Sella Ronda circuit. If you want a relaxing start to the morning the shuttle runs throughout the day, so you can enjoy a lie in and a leisurely breakfast. When its time to return make your way down to the Mont Cherz lift station before 5.30pm and enjoy a scenic journey back to the hotel.

Wellness Area

If you fancy an afternoon off from skiing, we highly recommend the hotel's wellness centre. Take a dip in the pool and make the most of the views of the Dolomites, close your eyes and relax in the steam room or turn up the heat in the sauna. If you want to fully relax massages and treatments are available to book through the hotel (pay locally). 

Piano Bar

The hotel's piano bar really brings the whole place to life both before and after a delicious four-course evening meal. Once a week you can enjoy a typical Ladin style dinner, perfect for sampling some of the tasty regional cuisine. Enjoy a tipple next to the warmth of the open log fire, sit back and chat about the day's events in the comfy leather chairs or join in with the evening entertainment hosted throughout the week.

Ski Holidays in Arabba

Of the resorts that make up the celebrated Sellaronda circuit, Arabba has some of the most interesting slopes, and is a real skiers’ holiday base. It boasts excellent, challenging pistes, and the stunning slopes of the mighty Marmolada glacier are within easy reach. The highly recommended Hidden Valley is close by too. Part of the spectacular Dolomiti Superski area, the modern lift system ensures Arabba links easily to the Sella Ronda, with Canazei in the Val di Fassa to the West, and Corvara in the sunny Alta Badia ski area to the North. This compact, friendly village has a natural ice skating rink and a small selection of shops, bars, restaurants and pizzerias. Après-ski is low key and relaxed, the skiing anything but! The fast 'Ornella' run down to Pescoi is one of the big thrills for local skiers – and one of the biggest local challenges.
