3 Options for a Luxurious Winter Escape
Where will you be when its wintertime? Will you fight against the change in weather with a vacation as far South as you can get? Or will you choose to embrace the cold temperatures with a trip up into the mountains? If you connect with the latter, then this is the ideal blog for you.
I’m about to unpack for you my top three wintertime resorts that you can’t afford to miss. These three resorts are the best in terms of luxury, facilities, and overall feel. Whether you’re after a weekend getaway with your spouse or the entire family, this list has got you covered.
Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, Utah
Even Forbes has acknowledged the Stein Eriksen Lodge as a 5-star hotel. The stein Ericksen lodge attracts guests from all around the world, all year long. It has gotten numerous awards and still does, because of its elegance and top-notch facilities. It still holds the award for the “World’s Best Ski Hotel.”
The views at this resort are to die for. Its sophisticated and vintage feel makes it perfect for skiing. There are lots of rooms to go around for their guests. In total, there are 39 condominiums and 15 private homes available with impeccable services. You can decide to blow off some steam at the private bar, restaurants, or spa.
The Stein lodge didn’t win so many awards just based on appearance either. You will dine on only the most exquisite meals, sip on only the finest wines, and be entertained by only the best in the business. The wine collection at the resort is quite impressive with over 1500 selections making it one of the largest in the state.
At the Champions Club Entertainment Center, you can spend good quality time with your friends and family as you entertain yourself with fun games that create happy memories, restores old ones, and strengthens bonds.
If a slower, more relaxed day is more your speed then the spa is not something you’ll get over quickly. It includes a sauna, steam room, hot and cold plunge baths, couple’s treatment rooms, Verdandi Wellness Studio, fitness center, and more.
In essence, The Stein Eriksen Lodge has all the makings of a winter-time vacation that will remain with you long after your trip ends.
Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek, Colorado
The Park Hyatt Beaver Creek is another fabulous option to consider. Once you arrive, you will be met by its magnificent design that will fill you with excitement. Whether you desire good food, spa treatment, skiing, or just relaxation, the Park Hyatt has got you covered.
There is a total of 180 rooms with each room complete with flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. One amenity you just can’t find anywhere is the view from your floor to ceiling window. Some accommodations have private terraces with fireplaces for cold nights.
Did I mention that the Park Hyatt is pet friendly as well? Yep, your favorite furry friend can live in luxury right along with you!
The spa and fitness center will provide you with a total wellness experience as you indulge in its excesses. If so desired, a personal trainer will guide you through various exercises, Pilates, or yoga. Or if you’re like me, skip the personal trainer and opt for a deep-tissue massage instead!
What’s especially nice about this resort is that there’s something for both winter and summer visits. You can decide to come here twice in a year and still find something to do.
The summer activities are fly fishing, golfing, hiking, horseback riding, summer chairlift rides, wine excursions, mountain tours, and river rafting.
While in winter, you can go skiing, ice-skating, snowboarding, snowmobile riding, and dogsledding. There are so many activities for you and your loved ones.
And of course, I can’t help but talk about the food. The restaurants serve local, organic, and natural meals in an open style kitchen that lets you savor all the mouth-watering aroma. There’s also a bar that lets you enjoy your cocktail as you admire the beautiful view. If you have the midnight munchies and need to have a midnight snack, you can grab a bite or a cup of coffee to satisfy your cravings.
The Park Hyatt has beautiful views and excellent service, resulting in a trip that should most definitely be considered for your next vacation.
Amangani in Jackson Hole, Wyoming
If you want privacy and a good time at a luxurious resort, then the Amangani should be at the top of your list. The suites are stylishly built with large windows designed to take advantage of the beautiful view. Though there are several different categories of suites available, each one of them is unique in its own way and will allow you to enjoy the spoils of the resort.
Adventure resides in all four seasons at the Amangani. The 2,470 acres makes skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling a blast to be had.
If you love to see wildlife, you’re in luck because you can see elk, wolves, bears, and moose all year long. You can also venture off the property to visit Yellowstone National Park or Grand Teton, where jagged snow-capped peaks tower over the immaculate wilderness.
After all that adventure we find ourselves back again for a trip to the spa. The spa treatment at the Amagani might just be the best on the list. It has four treatment rooms, two exercise studios, and his-and-her steam rooms. Plus, I can’t forget to mention the thing my clients rave about the most - the stone massage. All the stresses of life seem to be wiped away by the time this hour of pure indulgence is complete.
The food service is another perk of visiting the Amangani. You can begin your day with breakfast in bed, although I highly recommend taking it out onto your balcony where you can enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful view as you eat.
Once you wake up and get moving there’s an array of local and international dishes that will keep your taste buds bubbling. You can have Locally brewed beer and spirits distilled close by at the bar with panoramic views.
If you notice, I keep talking about the view. It’s because of how beautiful the scenery is. It gives you an escape from the world all through your stay.
When all is said and done for the day, you can relax at the heated outdoor pool and jacuzzi with a glass of wine, soft music playing in the background, and the most magical view ever.
No matter which of these luxurious locations you choose, you can be assured it will provide what is necessary for a remarkable vacation — one-of-a-kind experiences, over-the-top service, and fantastic food.
Be sure you’re not missing out on making this Winter season one of the best you’ve ever had. Schedule a time for us to talk and let’s decide which of these options is the one for you.
