A sun-drenched beach vacation is great. However, sometimes what we really want is to cosy up in a woodland retreat with a hot chocolate in hand. Here are some of the loveliest mountain-hugging resorts we have on our #RadarList, which we think should definitely be on yours too.
Feuerstein Nature Family Resort
An oasis of zen and wellness made for families, Feuerstein Nature Family Resort in Brenner, South Tyrol lets you immerse fully in the wondrous nature of the Dolomites.
Book yourself and your loved ones a spa day at their Mountain Spa, where you can find treatments ranging from Intensive Ultrasound Beauty Care to Fire Stone Massage and Herb Peeling with Hay Flowers. Kid-friendly and teen spa packages are also available. For example, Parent-Child Massage, Teen Facial Treatment, and Mini Facial Treatment.
The Cloud Chiang Mai
Get ready to be on cloud nine at The Cloud Chiang Mai, Thailand. Although it is not exactly a resort, this vacation home rental in Mae Taeng, Chiang Mai got what it takes to be on our radar list thanks to its unique design and location set high above the cloud.
Stay in the glass dome or relax in a bubble bath whilst appreciating the mountainscape and a pillowy blanket of white clouds right in front of you.
Lefay Resort & SPA Dolomiti
Get ready to be hugged by a leafy, snow-kissed mountain range at Lefay Resort & SPA Dolomiti. The resort situates in Madonna di Campiglio and is enveloped by ski areas and hiking trails, so you can hit up the outdoors whenever the hunger for adventure strikes.
