Still have some vacation days to use this winter, but no idea how and where to spend them? Then we have a little inspiration for you. Here are four absolute dream hotels that invite you to linger during the cold season. We have consciously chosen very different hotels, so that everyone can find the perfect vacation to match their individual tastes from the luxurious to the culturally enriching.
If you are looking for snow and luxury, the Hotel Villa Honegg in Switzerland may offer the perfect winter vacation for you. The 5-star deluxe hotel is located directly on the lake and offers not only a lot of comfort, but also a fantastic view of the mountains. Here we see one of the absolute highlights of the hotel, the infinity pool, which you can, of course, still use in winter and from which the view of the Alps is particularly impressive.
The hotel offers 23 exclusive rooms and suites, a spa, a gym, a private cinema and a Gault Millau award winning restaurant. You could hardly find a more stylish or relaxing winter vacation.
Would you rather spend your winter holidays under palm trees on the beach instead of in the snow? Then Mexico is a very good choice. Isla Holbox offers pristine sandy beaches and beautiful, relaxing nature. Here, the average annual temperature is 27 degrees, and you can see flamingos, whale sharks, turtles and dolphins.
The Hotel Holbox Dream is located on the beach of the car-free island. It was built in typical Caribbean style, with warm colours meeting natural materials and Mexican details. Nestled in the tropical gardens, there are two swimming pools with Jacuzzis.
For those who like to spend their holidays away from the beaten track and prefer unique locations to the obvious destinations, we recommend a winter visit to Scotland. The wild, untouched countryside has a special charm, and, thanks to the mild climate, it is rarely too cold. Our hotel recommendation: The Inn at John O'Groats, a lovely hotel standing amid the picturesque wilderness of northern Scotland. The Inn was recently restored, with the historic main building gaining modern, cheerful colours, which are particularly impressive against the coastal landscape.
Inside, traditional elements are cleverly combined with modern aspects. Each of the individual apartments in the Inn has its own character, but all have high-quality furnishings and a good dose of relaxed luxury.
Finally, we have a hotel for those who enjoy taking in the cultural offerings of the city. The winter months are ideal for city trips in southern European cities such as Rome. And this is where you will find the Hotel Art, a real holiday highlight with a very impressive interior. But it is not only the hotel that invites you to linger, it also makes the perfect base from which to explore the eternal city. It is located right in the heart of Rome, next to the Spanish Steps and close to the main attractions, the best restaurants and the most exclusive fashion stores and boutiques in the city.
This design hotel offers 36 spacious rooms equipped with high quality furniture, modern art and great amenities. The spa area includes a gym, sauna and steam room. A chic hotel for those who like a modern, stylish and relaxed environment in a bustling city.
