A holy trinity of relaxation, mountain adventure and alpine escapism. In Spa ski chalets the humble hot tub or sauna is a mere warm-up. In the finest chalet spas you'll find entire floors devoted to easing tension, purging toxins and steaming cares away.
Snooze in relaxation areas or re-unite body and soul in a yoga zone, while leaving the hard work (of attending to your personal wellness) to the professionals - many of the 5 star chalets have treatment rooms with in-house therapists.
Meanwhile, Marco Polo has quite literally gone for gold - its jet stream pool is mosaicked with 24 carat leaf, the handiwork of Monsieur Christian Lacroix. The floor's full of similar bespoke pieces -the ceiling is inspired by a 150 year old Moroccan Souk.
The spa area at Chalet Les Anges is as heavenly as the rest of the marble-faced property. After making use of the sauna, steam room or resting area (complete with ornamental pool and fountain), float outside for a plunge pool with views of the Matterhorn. With a wall of pure glass Chalet Grace, also in Zermatt, welcomes the mountains into its wellness area. Come dusk, relaxation here's made that much more ambient by the twinkling of a star-lit ceiling.
