  • So what's it like?

    The Grand Hotel Paradiso combines exceptional service and accommodation with a top-notch location for the slopes. Just 2 minutes' walk to the Presena cable car, it’s ideally placed for reaching Passo Tonale’s glacial runs, and is even closer to the resort’s vast beginners’ area.

    The hotel itself is second to none in Passo Tonale. Its warm, contemporary rooms use natural stone and scented woods to create a cosy mountain atmosphere and the panoramic lounge and terrace with aged rum and cigar menu add a little decadence.

    There’s an indoor swimming pool and full spa to soothe those ski legs. And if you've got the little ones in tow, they'll be well looked after in our Crystal Pepi Penguin Nusery or Whizz Kids Club, which are based in the hotel.

    Safety advice

    Please be advised that safety standards with regards to balconies differ in Italy and on occasions you may be allocated a room whereby the balcony is lower than we would expect in the UK and Ireland.

    For your own safety, please ensure that you take care when on the balcony and do not lean on or over the railings. If you have children below the age of 12 in your party, please ensure they are supervised and not left unattended at any time.

    Getting Here

    The driveway to the Paradiso is narrow, meaning our coach has limited access to it. Therefore, the coach will drop you at the bottom of the driveway, where you'll have a short 1-minute uphill walk, with your luggage, from the road to the entrance to the hotel. Make sure you're wearing sturdy shoes as it may be snowy underfoot.

    Families

    New for Winter 17/18

    The Grand Hotel Paradiso will be home to our Pepi Penguin Nursery (6 months - 4 years) and Whizz Kids Club (4-11 years) from Winter 17/18. Both clubs are only available to customers staying at the Grand Hotel Paradiso.

    The Pepi Penguin Nursery (6 months - 4 years) is run by our UK-qualified childcare staff and held in a dedicated room with games and toys. Outdoor play included (weather and parental consent permitting).

    What's included:

    • Full day care from 8.30am to 5pm
    • 2-course hot lunch
    • Snacks and drinks throughout the day
    • A daily routine and activities report for your child
    Activities vary daily. We'll find time for stories, singing, arts and crafts including painting and collage making, plus messy play in the sand tray and free play with age-relevant toys set out for the children to choose what they want to do.

    We're also really keen to take in some fresh mountain air each day, so we aim to have an outdoor activity at least once a day – maybe sledging, snowy walks, a gondola ride or snow painting. And if your child is used to a sleep, we'll factor that in too.


    The Whizz Kids Club (4-11 years) provides plenty of fun-filled days as our childcare staff offer a combination of care and skiing with Whizzclusive, which includes 6 x AM ski lessons, pick-up and drop-off from ski lessons, lunch and afternoon care by Crystal staff in the dedicated Whizz Kids club room.

    What’s included:
    • Full day care from 8.30am to 5pm
    • 6 x AM ski lessons, ski school drop-offs and pick-ups*
    • Child skis, boots and helmet hire
    • 2-course hot lunch
    • Snacks and drinks throughout the day
    • Lift passes aren't included as each child's needs are different. If and when your child feels confident enough to use the lifts, you'll need to buy a lift pass locally.

      Activities vary daily – to include games, arts and crafts and storytime – and are often based around a theme.

      We're also really keen to take in some fresh mountain air each day, so we aim to have an outdoor activity at least once a day – maybe sledging, bus bingo, snowman competitions or a treasure hunt.
    Both clubs operate for 6 days and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place.

    Evening clubs are also available for customers staying at the Grand Hotel Paradiso. You can book online and in resort for an extra charge of £80 for 6 evenings.

    All our staff are UK-qualified, English-speaking and first-aid trained, and have had CRB and reference checks. We prioritise maintaining the correct adult:child ratios.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.

Bookings made by credit card incur a fee of 2%. Debit cards are free. More information.
