It may be the first day of spring, but snow bunnies can still get their ski fix in the Swiss Alps, where powder is blanketing St. Moritz. For a spring ski getaway, consider booking The Kulm, the oldest hotel in the fashionable resort town, as it unveiled a new $12 million spa in December 2012. Overlooking St. Moritz Lake (site of the annual Cartier Polo World Cup on Snow) and the alpine peaks beyond, the spa is a destination in itself; expansive facilities and glorious views make for some fab après-ski pampering.
There’s an indoor pool with underwater music; an open-air pool where you can soak surrounded by the beautiful alpine panorama; a Finnish sauna; a steam bath; a salt grotto; a Kneipp footpath; and a relaxation lounge with a crackling fire. Many of the spa treatments incorporate local alpine plants. The private spa suite has a private sauna, steam bath, waterbed and a whirlpool scented with mountain herbs.
