    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 692 reviewsTripAdvisor (692)
    Free WiFi

    The iconic Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel has been a symbol of Côte d'Azur legacy and status since it first opened its doors in 1908. This seasonal property closes between the end of December and the beginning of March each year, and it is perched on 17 French Riviera acres that overlook the Mediterranean Sea. The grand hotel is home to an Olympic-sized saltwater swimming pool, a seasonal kids club, an 8,000-square-foot spa and 74 guest rooms and suites. There are three restaurants and one bar on-site, two of which are scheduled for renovations and are set to reopen between the end of April and early May 2019. All accommodations feature marble bathrooms, white interiors designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, complimentary Wi-Fi access and Hermès toiletries, while some boast additional perks like private terraces and swimming pools with sea views. No matter which room you choose, guests say you'll enjoy flawless service and personalized touches like being greeted by name. The main complaint from recent travelers is the price, but others note that a stay at this Four Seasons property is worth the splurge.

    JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa
    Venice
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1973 reviewsTripAdvisor (1973)

    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. Although some former travelers were displeased with this JW Marriott outpost's removed location, getting to and from the city center is easy thanks to the property's water shuttle service. Though there's plenty offered on-site. Activities and amenities, such as bicycles, a kids club with cooking classes and mask art projects, yoga lessons and excursions to local glass-blowing and lace-making facilities, are offered by the hotel. When you're ready to relax, take a dip in one of three swimming pools, enjoy a spa treatment or sip on a coffee or glass of wine at Rose Bar Lounge. Several dining options – including a deli, a poolside restauran and the Michelin-starred Dopolavoro Dining Room – are available as well. Then, retire to your modern room, suite or villa, each of which features a neutral color palette and modern conveniences like a flat-screen TV, a coffee maker and Wi-Fi. Members of the Marriott Rewards program can cash in or earn points for choosing to bed down here.

    Arosa Kulm Hotel & Alpin Spa
    Arosa
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 430 reviewsTripAdvisor (430)
    Free WiFi

    The Arosa Kulm Hotel is lauded for having one of the most scenic addresses in the Swiss Alps. The property sits 6,000 feet above sea level, in the mountainous region of Arosa, about 92 miles southeast of Zurich. The hotel itself is one big vantage point. Situated along rolling hills and flanked by picturesque peaks as far as the eye can see, guests were breathless at the sights surrounding the Arosa Kulm. But don't spend all your time simply looking at the scenery. The hotel offers up enough activities to keep you busy for days, including skiing, ice hockey and tobogganing during the winter, as well as hiking, tennis and paragliding during the summer. Those looking for a little more relaxation can indulge in the expansive on-site spa, which includes a swimming pool with a waterfall, massage showers, a grotto, Finnish saunas, a tanning studio and a children's natural rock pool, among other features. Dining is also plentiful, with the hotel housing six restaurants varying from fine to casual. Rooms are more subdued than their surroundings and have a lodge-like feel (complete with wood-paneled walls) featuring basic comforts like TVs, desks and, in some accommodations, balconies. Apart from the hotel's unbeatable location and well-equipped facilities, the property's stellar customer service was a high point for recent lodgers.

    If your idea of a perfect Swiss getaway consists of top-notch service and a superb waterfront location, consider hanging your hat at La Réserve Genève Hotel, Spa and Villas. This Leading Hotels of the World-affiliated property in Bellevue, Switzerland, sits just 4 miles north of Geneva by Lake Geneva and offers a plethora of facilities. You can listen to DJ-curated tunes at The Bar, grab a bite to eat at one of five restaurants (including a seasonal venue with an ice skating rink), lounge by the outdoor pool or unwind in the spa's hammam. A free kids club is also available year-round, and teens and children can enjoy summer camp activities like paddleboarding and treasure hunts for a fee during the warmer months. After enjoying the hotel's amenities, retreat to your guest room or suite. Each features decor inspired by African safari lodges (think: animal artwork and rich wood furnishings) and conveniences like a minibar, free Wi-Fi access and a flat-screen TV. Past guests loved the hotel's beautiful yet homey design, adding that paying extra for a lake-facing suite is a must. What's more, many said all of the on-site restaurants – especially the Michelin-starred Tsé Fung – served delicious dishes.

    With an on-site tennis school, a driving range, a ski school, a comprehensive kids program and a Lipizzaner horse stable and riding school, plus numerous restaurants (including one where you can dine within a cow barn) and a full-service spa, boredom is rare at The Stanglwirt.
