Davos is the highest town in the Grison Alps, teetering at 1560m. Just when you think the picture postcard charm is complete, along comes the Schweizerhof Hotel, with its elegant, inviting surrounds. In addition to its stylish and comfortable rooms, rated among the town’s finest, a long list of pampering extras awaits, not to mention the “home from home” welcome. Also in Davos, the Morosani family greet guests with the same attention to detail at Morosani Posthotel and Morosani Fiftyone. The former has attained near-legendary status and boasts 110 years of service, while the latter, renovated extensively in 2011, is a hipper, more contemporary rendition. The three destinations offer four restaurants between them, including “Postii”, which is regarded as a true stalwart on the Davos culinary scene. Everything imaginable to make the most of longer nights and exhilarating days, as your dreams slowly edge towards reality and emotions run high.
A kilometre-stretch of white, sandy beach, an elegant, distinguished setting inspired by former plantation dwellings and butler service on-hand… It is easy to relate to the success of Residence Mauritius, which has fast become a beacon on the international hotel scene in just 20 years’ existence. The food served has been instrumental in the hotel’s irresistible charm with 3 restaurants boasting their rich, vibrant and determinedly local flavours. And for the ultimate in relaxation, the Sanctuary Carita spa, complete with a pavilion escape overlooking the lagoon, provides an indulgent interlude in which to unwind while being lulled by the gentle sea breeze and uninterrupted warmth, as if by magic.
Further to a complete renovation in 2016, the Four Seasons has managed to attain luxury and contemporary elegance in perfect measure. Whether it’s well-being sessions in the Shiseido spa, a round of tennis, or an energising walk in the grounds, the hotel strives to deliver the utmost in customer service and care. Future happy couples can also exchange their vows in the hotel’s private St. George’s Chapel. An exceptional setting to say “I do” before savouring the delights of a private jacuzzi, or an intimate dinner in one of five restaurants on-site, regularly awarded for cuisine of the highest quality.
A sweet symphony of charm, well-being and culinary excellence is exactly what’s in store at the Lenkerhof Hotel in the Simmental Valley, Switzerland. With its ski slopes and sulphur-rich hot springs, fitness and exercise are its key selling points, making this an enchanted haven for those seeking rest and recuperation. With its outdoor pool heated to a balmy 34°, looking out at the snowy peaks, 28° indoor pool and 2,000m2 spa – one of Switzerland’s largest – the hotel has all it takes to alleviate stress and rekindle your inner peace. The food is equally superb, with no less than three restaurants, from Spettacolo and its 30 speciality cheeses to Oh de vie! and its Italian-inspired menu.
