El Lodge

Last updated: 23 December, 2023

High in the Sierra Nevada, surrounded by majestic mountain views, this chic woodsy Nordic-style hotel offers high altitude glamour.

Perfect for active visitors, it offers a range of ski packages (including lessons for beginners), with direct access to over 40 pistes and a seductive apres ski scene in its cosy bar.

Even if you don’t ski, you can dive into the Sierra Nevada’s only open-air, heated pool, then bask on the sun deck, or go for a deep massage in the spa, sink into the deep cushions of the leather sofas by the open fire in the lounge with a perfectly mixed cocktail, then drink in the surrounding beauty over a gourmet meal.
