A New Place, a New Philosophy
The renovated project maintains the essence and spirit of the old place, but at the same time enhances it with a new concept that will combine leisure, music, and gastronomy in a unique experience that will go beyond the ski season and the weekends. In this sense, the intention of Grandvalira is to deseasonalize the leisure of the Principality ski resort, with gastronomic and musical proposals from Monday to Sunday. So you can enjoy live music, DJ, or themed dinners outdoors during the summer too. The new venture, designed by David Alayet, from the Dream Up design studio, remodeled the concept, with a clear vision to integrate with the mountains and have a real natural atmosphere. The venue itself is an oasis in which every detail is conceived to make you feel comfortable and live a cozy mountainous experience with breathtaking views over Andorra’s landscape. The chosen materials combine both natural and noble components, catering to an eclectic sophistication touch that brings an elegant, modern, and warm ambience. The entertainment is guaranteed in a space that expands in over 2,000 square meter area, divided into two floors, including a terrace of 700m2. The decoration blends unique pieces of decoration and furniture, with natural patterns that seem to be emerging from the ground.
The beautifully designed open-space concept of L’Abarset is a beauty to behold and a reason to pay a visit in its own right.
