For those looking for skiing with a bit more glamour or more rest and recovery than physical exhaustion, the Gstaad Palace spa in Switzerland’s Gstaad is where you should be planting your ski poles. The downstairs spa has not only eight treatment rooms but a private spa suite, relaxations areas, saunas, steam baths as well as both indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi pools and all overlooking long, stretching Swiss Alpine views.
While the saunas and steam rooms ease aching muscles, there are plenty of alternative hideaways simply for absolute quiet and relaxation, or the cozy lounge for reading with roaring fires, magazines, and refreshments.
There is a long list of classic treatments available, from facials to massages, but the treatment that entices everyone is the unique Hammam Experience which takes around two hours with seven different stages: be warned, book well in advance.
The ritual calming and soothing experience becomes addictive and there’s nothing beautiful than a private relaxation room or steam bath opposite the majestic peaks of the Swiss Alps.
