If there’s one that your body craves after a long, hard day skiing out on the cold slopes of a ski resort, it’s some well-deserved time pampering yourself in a spa. From massive, modern wellness facilities to quirky and inventive spa lounges, here’s a list of our favourite spa hotels you should visit this season. Backstage Vernissage Hotel, Zermatt The Backstage Vernissage Hotel is a relatively new addition to Zermatt’s list of luxury hotels. The hotel is quirky and unique in design, with strong links to the Zermatt Unplugged music festival. The Hotel also incorporates a bar, dinner cinema, lounge-restaurant and regularly hosts club nights, art exhibitions and concerts. However, the main focal point of this hotel is its spa, the spa is themed on the ‘seven days of creation’ and there are seven different spa cubes to experience such as the ‘plant world’, ‘cosmos’ and ‘water and air’. The spa also has a stainless steel jacuzzi in the centre of its terrace. Chalet Marco Polo, Val d’Isère Chalet Marco Polo is a super-luxury chalet set in the heart of the thriving Val d’Isère. The chalet is an open and spacious residence with a large lounge, bar-area and a terrace that offers wide panoramic views of the resort and also has an outdoor kitchen. The spa is a real treat, the entire second floor of this chalet is completely dedicated to the expansive spa area. With an enormous pool, hot-tub and adjoining relaxation area with a bar and fireplace, the entire area is also lit with fun neon lights to give it a touch more decadence. As well as that there is also a gym and fitness suite and classic and automated hydro massage room. Hotel St Regis Resort, Aspen The Hotel St Regis in Aspen is an idyllic hotel at the base of Ajax mountain in Aspen.

  1. As the years pass by my ageing body finds skiing a little bit harder, the muscles are starting to ache for longer. Any place with a spa, for some pampering and relaxation, is a big plus.

  2. the concept of a hotel that is suitable for holidays with a partner, but certainly at a high price, but in accordance with the facilities offered

  3. It’s called first mover advantage. The Hotel Klum got there first way back in 1856, got the best location and views, and has just steadily built on its reputation over the last century and a half.

  4. Admittedly it is many, many moons since I first went skiing and I’m just utterly astounded by how sophisticated the ski industry has become over the decades.

    Back in the day “apres ski” was little more than a lot of beers and some heavy carb-loading.

    Apres ski really has come off age and the options here are jaw-dropping. It’s tempting me to get my skis down from the loft for a final farewell to the slopes.

  5. I love it when you read about a company that’s been around for so long is still going strong. Far too many companies and services are going under, so it’s great that Hotel Kulm for instance are staying ahead of the curve with what they offer. It sounds like the perfect place to enjoy your skiing adventures, then indulge in plenty of luxurious R&R!
