What: A hotel and spa offering a myriad of hydrotherapy options.

Where: In Vals, a pretty village off the tourist trail of Switzerland.

Why: After a day on the slopes, what better way to soothe those aching muscles than in one of the many pools of the Therme. Facilities include a hot “fire pool”, a cold plunge pool, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a deliciously scented flower pool. Follow that up with a luxurious full-body massage, various exfoliation treatments, or a kelp bath. High up in the mountains, you’ll literally feel on top of the world.
