    Kulm Hotel St. Moritz
    St. Moritz
    #1 in Best Resorts in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 693 reviewsTripAdvisor (693)

    The self-proclaimed birthplace of both winter tourism and winter sports, Kulm Hotel St. Moritz is a historically significant destination where guests can enjoy a variety of culinary, wellness and athletic activities. The property is located in St. Moritz, Switzerland, near Piz Nair mountain. The hotel's standard rooms feature large windows with views of St. Moritz Dorf or Piz Nair and wooden furnishings and pastel-colored fabrics. Upgraded accommodations include perks like private balconies, local wood accents and spacious salons. (Complimentary internet access is included in all rooms.) Keep in mind, though, that a few past guests reported feeling frustrated with the staff regarding their housekeeping service. There are six restaurants and four bars on-site, including an Asian-inspired pop-up experience and a gourmet pizzeria. Travelers loved the on-site amenities, but visitors were most impressed with the hotel's activities. Winter options include skiing, traditional ice sports and bobsledding, while summers can be spent golfing, mountaineering or mountain biking. Regardless of when your adventure takes place, the Kulm Spa St. Moritz is available to ease guests back into a state of relaxation before they resume the chase for adrenaline the next morning. Part of The Leading Hotels of the World portfolio, this hotel welcomes Leaders Club members with various additional perks.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1557 reviewsTripAdvisor (1557)
    Free WiFi

    While VILA VITA Parc may be the place where you sleep while visiting Portugal's Algarve coast, it's so much more than just a hotel. In fact, it's a haven for foodies and oenophiles, thanks in part to its six bars, wine cellar (which houses more than 11,000 bottles) and 10 restaurants and cafes (including one with two Michelin stars). The property also boasts an array of fitness-focused amenities, such as a driving range, fitness classes, tennis courts and water sports equipment rentals at its private beach. Those looking to simply relax can stroll through 54 acres of lush gardens, enjoy a massage at the spa or lounge on the hotel's private yacht. No matter what type of travel entices you, all recent guests agree that the property's guest rooms and suites are worth the trip. Standard rooms include split-level layouts with Portuguese tile mosaics, hardwood floors, goose-down bedding, private terraces or gardens, Wi-Fi access and bathrooms with walk-in rain showers or bathtubs. Upgrade to a larger room or suite for coastal views and more space. Some suites also come with kitchenettes, fireplaces, walk-in closets and cellphones for requesting concierge services. And Leaders Club members you're in luck – as part of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property grants perks like welcome gifts and upgrades.

    Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt
    Going
    #3 in Best Resorts in Europe
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 750 reviewsTripAdvisor (750)

    With an on-site tennis school, a driving range, a ski school, a comprehensive kids program and a Lipizzaner horse stable and a riding school, numerous restaurants (including one where you can dine within a cow barn) and a full-service spa, boredom is a rare – if nonexistent – feeling at the Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt. Recent guests said the abundance of on-site activities is a big draw for staying here and appreciated the mix of kid and adult activities. Other highlights of this western Austria property include the friendly and helpful staff and the "beautiful" views of the nearby Wilden Kaiser mountain range. Plus, many characterized the property's accommodations as large and clean, though a few wished the lodge-style rooms and suites were a bit more luxurious than rustic. Standard guest rooms feature pine furnishings, minibars, flat-screen TVs and seating areas, while suites offer additional living space, Nespresso coffee machines and walk-in closets. Additionally, most rooms come with balconies or terraces, and the majority of the property's suites have fireplaces.

There property also features a kids club, multiple meeting rooms and an expansive spa complex with an indoor pool and a Finnish sauna.

    Designed by famed Italian architect Matteo Thun, the JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa offers visitors a private island setting about a mile south of downtown Venice.
