Luxury hotels in the mountains – wellness, spa & relaxation

14/02/2020 - SnowTrex

Alpine architecture laced with wooden elements, spacious premises and attractive spa offers – these are the basic ingredients for a chic Alpine hotel. Our highlights in this luxury segment provide all that and more.

Gradonna Mountain Resort Kals

Prizewinning Spa Hotel

The 4-star superior Gradonna Mountain Resort in Kals am Großglockner is a spa hotel at the top of its class. Last year, 20,000 guests voted the hotel as a spa highlight and as such, received the 2015 Leading Spa Award. The guests’ feeling of special treatment is mainly due to the versatile wellness offer: The 3,000 m² large spa area is comprised of three pools, an outdoor pool, several saunas, a solarium and much more, such as cosmetic treatments, various massages and even a hair salon. The location of the noble accommodation at the edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park could not be more ideal. In less than 100 m, you can hop on the lift to take you into the Großglockner Kals-Matrei ski resort and when snow conditions allow it, ski-in to the hotel is also possible.

Precious residence in Switzerland

Peaks Place may not be a hotel, but is at the very least just as well furnished and stylish as one. The theme here is “urban style meets Alpine flair”, of which is clearly evident in the rooms with their discreet colour palette and modern materials. The 5-star apartment accommodation lies at the resort centre of Laax in the Canton of Grisons, making it a top place for deep snow riders. Access to the Flims-Laax-Falera ski area, with its 235 km of pistes, lies just 100 m away from the dwelling. It is a real pleasure to sit down at the lobby bar and enjoy a drink with a Panini after a long day on the piste, and afterwards, to relax in the pristine spa area.

French pistes at your doorstep

The Premium Résidence Le Village in Les Arcs boasts 5 stars, what tends to be rather extraordinary for a French apartment complex. The eight buildings of the well-maintained complex are located in the district of Les Arcs 1950 and therefore lie directly on the pistes of the Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry ski area.

Starting from your doorstep, you can ride right into the ski area and its 193 km of piste. When you’re finished, you can watch the world go by in one of the four heated outdoor pools. A spectacular highlight in the spa area is the swimming pool, of which has been made to resemble a grotto.

Residence in the St. Moritz of the East

Zakopane is the winter capital of Poland. The resort stands out thanks to its architecturally unique wooden houses and especially pronounced hospitality. Here, you’ll find both Kasprowy Wierch (16 km of piste), one of the most popular ski areas in the country, along with numerous top hotels. One of the best places for high-end living in Zakopane is the 5-star Residence Nosalowy Dwor, somewhat outside of the centre. In the lobby and at the hotel bar, you’ll sit on fluffy fur armchairs and the rooms themselves are tastefully furnished with just a touch of rustic ambience. The accommodation offers everything from a spa area to a children’s play room, granting the wishes of even the most demanding of winter holiday-goers. Furthermore, if desired, computer games and toboggans may also be rented out and for families, a childcare service is available to make use of.

Luxury at the Plan de Corones

Plan de Corones is one of the most sought-after ski areas in Italy. Over a dozen holiday destinations can be found in the area surrounding the popular family-friendly skiing mountain, one of them being the sunny resort of Pfalzen, situated at an altitude of 1,220 m in Pustertal. Here, you’ll find the Sonnenhof, one of the best hotels in the region and in many aspects quite attractive. Gorgeous wooden balconies on the sunny side of the hotel open up to a clear view of the surrounding Dolomites and heavy curtains, winged chairs and red carpets lend the rooms a practically splendid ambience. The spa area especially has everything: you’ll find an indoor activity pool with waterfall and massage jets, a Jacuzzi, rock grotto, activity showers, Kneipp basins, an expansive sauna area, a yoga/pilates pavilion and an outdoor pool for guests. The solarium and various treatments in the beauty centre are available as well, although these must be booked and paid for separately.
