Stylish new Maribel Hotel opens in Sierra Nevada

OPENING IN time for this season’s skiing in Sierra Nevada, the highest and most southernmost ski resort in Spain, the renovated and newly designed Maribel Hotel should not pass unnoticed. It’s a stylish affair, with a show-stealing elliptical staircase plus a Nordic-inspired spa and – looking out to the mountains – an outdoor terrace for that essential hot drink or sundowner during the golden hour that kick-starts après ski.

The four villages that make up Maribel Ski Resort are nearby but the hotel’s restaurant, with its own distinctive design by way of a gold leaf bar and hanging fireplaces, is open until late and serves up the nourishing dishes that you expect after a day’s skiing. Bedrooms and suites, nearly thirty in all, are spread out over three floors and come nicely arranged with faux-fur throws and amenities from Natura Bissé, the Spanish luxury skin care company.

The highest slope in the Iberian Peninsula, a compelling attraction for seasoned skiers, is to be found in Sierra Nevada but with over 100 km of skiable slopes this is a ski terrain that can accommodate all levels of expertise and Maribel Hotel, taking its name from one of Sierra Nevada’s 131 runs, is 50 metres from the nearest chairlift.
