This hotel enjoys a lovely location amongst a promenade of shops, hotels and restaurants and enjoys great views of the surrounding mountains from all the bedrooms. From the “underground” exit by the ski room, you walk the two minutes to the TC Baquieria (Telecabine – Gondola) which links you the start of the ski area and will quite often be the lift that brings you back to the hotel, located at 1500m.
The hotel has a Nepalese twist reflected through the interiors and decoration, this makes for a warm, cosy and relaxing atmosphere from when you first enter, all the way through to your private and peaceful bedroom. The values and philosophy of the hotel and the team also reflect their chosen theme and the staff could not be friendlier or more willing to help.
There are plenty of dining options with a lovely half board restaurant, a lobby bar, an evening snack bar and late night drinking bar on the lower level. The hotel offers a traditional breakfast buffet and lovely international choices each evening in the main restaurant, whilst the bars serve tapas style potions of cured meats and sandwiches to accompany a fine selection of international beers and cocktails. All dietary and allergies are catered for in the main restaurant.
The spa is relaxing, again in keeping with the Nepalese theme; tranquil and peaceful and the perfect place to unwind after a day on the slopes. A small indoor pool, hot tub with a bubble bench, foot spa, wood heated loungers, sauna, steam room, ice fountains and relaxing power showers all help the body and senses to recharge.
A good selection of bedrooms all with a similar style and tone to them, it’s really just the size you have to choose. It really is a hotel that caters for everyone. The “miniclub” provides some entertainment for the children (please request details and we recommend you pre book) and family mealtimes can also be organised. The proximity of the hotel to shops and cafes and the ease of the lift system make it a good choice for a family.
With facilities for conferences and all the latest conference equipment the hotel can also serve as a good venue for off site meetings or even a conference.
The Kaluma Opinion
We’ve stayed at and enjoyed the hospitality of this very lovely and hospitable hotel which provides a very affordable level of luxury just minutes from the lifts.
All rooms have a similar décor throughout the hotel with natural, neutral, calming colours that keep with the theme of the hotel. The bathrooms are spacious and have heated walls, there are power showers and/or bath tubs in most rooms. Guest can enjoy great views from just about every room thanks to the big windows that allow for lots of light and the serenity of the stunning scenery. Double or twin beds are possible in all rooms, plus the lovely touch of choosing your preferred pillow from the in room pillow menu – all designed to help you relax and sleep.
