Maintaining a fitness regime is no uphill struggle when your luxury chalet comes with a fully-equipped gym. A quick morning session's terrific preparation for that daily mountain work out, while an afternoon cool-down will put you in good shape for the next day.
Once you've worked up a sweat, most chalets also feature wellness facilities like hot tubs, steam rooms and saunas - just the ticket for relieving muscles - and many have massage rooms with in-house therapists for post-work-out treatments.
You'll find the facilities far surpass an exercise bike in a box room; think along the lines of technogyms, state-of-the-art equipment, sound systems and widescreens in their own air-conditioned chambers. Marco Polo's even has two of everything, so you can train à deux.
These properties were designed by the best in the business and as well as including facilities like pools, hot tubs and saunas many gyms are strategically positioned for incredible views of the mountains (we love the floor to ceiling windows at Dent Blanche).
