Ideally located at the heart of the vast Paradiski area in the sporty & family ski-resort of La Plagne-Centre (2000 m), the Araucaria Hotel & Spa**** has been fully refurbished.

Following its recent refurbishment, the hotel offers new facilities in a style blending raw materials and soft textures to create a warm, chic atmosphere, perfect for meeting up with friends or family, to have fun and relax! 

You will be able to make the most of the brand new common spaces, including a cocktail bar, an original children's area and a large number of innovative and fun services.

You can spend the night in one of the redesigned 84 rooms in the classic, superior or family category. 

The new 450 m2 spa by Nuxe area will amaze with its indoor swimming pool, four treatment massage and cocooning cabins, sauna, tepidarium, and the treasure island designed especially for kids.

Worth knowing

The hotel has an onsite ski shop open daily from 8am to 7pm and a heated  ski locker and boot room to store your equipment.

The Bar

The refurbished cocktail bar is eprfect for a civilised apres-ski, offering the opportunity to watch DJ sets or live concerts, as well as fun spaces for the children. 

The Restaurant

The restaurant has a chic and friendly atmosphere and will feature themed buffets recalling the atmosphere of the well-known French covered markets.

What else to book


You’ll need to book your own transfers, when staying here. Your main options are shared or private transfers, but consider whether you would prefer a door-to-door service or a (generally cheaper) “communal” drop-off point at your destination

Cycle Hire

You’ll need to organise your own bike hire when staying here.  Things to consider are the type of bike you want to rent such as road, mountain, hard trail and/or an electric bike; and whether you’ll need helmets and protective clothing with your rental. You’re best off choosing a shop that is close to your accommodation for ease of access, and making it quicker to return the bike and pay at the end. Some companies may also deliver so it’s worth looking at all the options.

Instructors & Lessons

When staying here, you’ll need to book  your own ski or snowboard lessons. Tuition is strongly recommended for complete beginners and is always a good idea whatever your level to perfect your technique. Group lessons are a great way for children to learn with their peers whilst giving you some free time on the slopes. Groups are also a generally cheaper option for adults, however, with a private instructor you’ll have undivided attention and be able to progress at your own pace.

Guides & Tours

When staying here, you’ll need to book your own Guides & Tours, which are a great way to discover La Plagne whilst doing a number of fun activities. During the winter, if you are keen to go off-piste, booking a High Mountain Guide is strongly recommended. Not only do they know the best local spots, these highly trained and experienced individuals are very familiar with the surroundings and can provide loads of insights you won’t get by yourself, as well as helping to ensure your safety.

Local Shuttles

There is a local free resort bus that runs between the different levels of La Plagne from close by the hotel but it is unlikely you will need this service being based so close to the pistes and the lifts. 


Hotel parking: 12€ per day
