Overview - hotel description - Grand Hotel Paradiso description

The Grand Paradiso is a high-quality hotel in an ideal location. Just behind the building is the Serodine chairlift, giving access to the south-facing beginner slopes and linking to the Ponte di Legno gondola, while a two-minute walk over the road is the Paradiso gondola, which whisks you up to the Presena glacier.

The hotel itself is second to none in Passo Tonale. Its warm, contemporary rooms are tastefully furnished with natural stone and wood to create a cosy mountain atmosphere, while the communal areas are subtly stylish with great views of the valley. The restaurant serves a range of fine local foods and regional wines, with the bar downstairs having separate areas dedicated to different Italian tipples.

There’s a wellness centre with a grotto-style indoor swimming pool and hot tub, alongside a multitude of treatment rooms, solariums, saunas, special showers and a steam room to relax in (local charges apply). Alternatively, you can hit the fully-equipped gym, or have some fun in the games room. There's a heated boot room with your own allocated locker, plus ski hire is on-site and next door, so no need to lug your equipment around town.

If you've got the little ones in tow, they'll be well looked after in our Crystal Pepi Penguin Nursery or Beanie Bear Club, which are based in the hotel. Your kids will have trampolines, soft play and any number of games to play with when they're not out in the snow.

The rest of town is a short walk or free bus away, but with so much to do in the hotel and at your doorstep, you'll really have no need to go any further.

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 less than a minutes' walk with your luggage to reception. Make sure you're wearing sturdy shoes, as it may be snowy underfoot.


Families - any extra notes for parents with children

The Grand Hotel Paradiso is host to Pepi Penguin Nursery and Beanie Bear Club, which are open to all children staying at this hotel only.

Pepi Penguin Nursery (6 months - 4 years) is run by our UK-qualified childcare staff and held in a dedicated room equipped 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 snowy walks, a gondola ride or snow painting. And if your child is used to a sleep, we'll factor that in too.


Beanie Bear Club (4-8 years) provides plenty of fun-filled days as our childcare staff offer a combination of care and skiing, 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 Beanie Bear 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 bus bingo, snowman competitions or a treasure hunt.

Both Pepi Penguin Nursery and Beanie Bear Club operate for 6 days and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place. Evening clubs are also available at the Grand Hotel Paradiso to book in resort for an extra charge.

All our staff are UK-qualified, English-speaking and first-aid trained, and have had DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and reference checks. And we prioritise maintaining the correct adult:child ratios.

Please note, all childcare is an extra charge and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place. In some instances, childcare does not extend the full length of the ski season. Please contact the sales team for additional information.

Up in the Rhaetian Alps at 1883m, rubbing shoulders with Trentino and Lombardy, the purpose built town of Tonale is one of the highest resorts in the country. With a top altitude of 3016m, snow is pretty much guaranteed throughout the season here, as is lots of Italian sunshine. Milan and Verona are the nearest serving airports, where you can find coach, taxi and train connections to the resort. Trains from Milan pass through Verona to Trento where the rail service stops at all of Val di Sole’s top resorts, ...
As a beginner, having to take loads of lifts to reach the easy runs can be a bit daunting. You don’t have to worry about this here, with the majority of blues near hotels and bars, for those all-important hot chocolate / Dutch courage breaks. Nursery slopes with magic carpets let learners work on snowploughs in short, manageable bursts - when you begin to feel more comfortable, take the Valena chair lift for a couple of mid-length blues. 60% of the slopes have been carefully crafted for intermediates, leadin...
Of course one of the best things about Italy is its delectable delicacies, and whether you’re looking for fast food to fill you after a hard days skiing (try La Torretta for their filling pizza) or a more authentic, native dining experience (El Bait serves local, genuine cuisine), you won’t be disappointed. La Voglia serves group sized platters of cured meat antipasti, local cheeses and a deli counter so you can take your favourite products home and enjoy them all over again! Eating on a budget is easy, with f...

"Would be great for families"

Mike G., Chester
4/ out of 5
We had a really nice week and the hotel was good. They sort of upgraded us to a private dining area which was nice but a bit weird in that it was very quiet! The whole hotel was pretty quiet – there are a couple of nice bars there but one night we were the only 2 people in the whole bar! The staff were very nice and we’re going to keep in touch with the waitress as we got on so well with her. The food was great, it wasn’t overly Italian but more of an Italian take on different dishes. We especially enjoyed the wines. Our bedroom was ok, quite small but on a ski holiday you don’t need much. I think all the rooms have nice views, ours was looking out towards the glacier. The spa and pool facilities were really good! We could get to the slopes really quickly (we just had to go up some stairs and out) and at different times of year you would have been able to literally ski all the way back. It seemed like a really good hotel for families overall but the closeness to the slopes would be another reason I’d recommend it if you have children - it would make everything much easier. If you were more interested in the nightlife you would probably want to stay somewhere more in the centre of Tonale (although it was only a short walk anyway).
