Warm, soothing and ever so indulgent- it's as though hot tubs were made for luxury ski holidays. These bubbling beauties are perfect for romantic evenings or group gatherings (the best use for that chalet champagne…) and if you've got little ones in tow, the bambini adore them.
Outdoor and indoor hot tubs each have their own charms: bathe al fresco with the heavens above, mountains surrounding and - if Mother Nature's feeling generous - that delightful fusion of falling snow and steaming water. Indoors, soak with the comfort of a nearby heated towel rail, sauna or steam room.
If you like the idea of the open air hot tub experience, Chalets Mistral, La Bergerie and Le Chardon have 2 outdoor tubs each. Indoors, we've heard great things about Chalet Chopine's Jacuzzi - it comes with a sound system and floating remote, for a soak accompanied by your favourite playlist. The designers of properties like Chalet L'Hotse have chosen the ultimate indulgence - an outdoor hot tub with a second inside.
Look higher to the uber-elite, for hot tubs that are just one jewel in a crown of spa facilities. At Zermatt's Chalet Grace, a dazzling wellness area contains a hot tub, sauna, massage and shower rooms and a Pilates space. Meanwhile, Val d'Isere's Marco Polo's dedicated an entire floor to the pursuit of pampering - and with a bar, DJ equipment, lasers and smoke machines, there's potential for a hot tub party like no other.
