At this five-star design hotel, no expense has been spared. Based around ‘dipiù’, which means ‘more’, the full-service spa is inspired by nature and the local countryside — with products crafted from regional ingredients.

This heavenly retreat is the perfect place to regain your life balance, thanks to its extensive sauna area, indoor and outdoor pools, yoga and meditation sessions, and a state-of-the-art gym. There’s a focus on Ayurvedic therapies and treatments, or you can opt for a range of services such as massages and facials. To complete the pampering, there are also plenty of beauty treatments and a hair salon to make you feel beautiful outside too.

If you want to add activities to your Swiss break, rent a motor yacht and steer your way over to neighbouring Italy for a spot of lunch and island hopping. There’s also the chance to channel your inner James Bond and take a classic car for a mountain spin, experience cookery workshops, or even learn to play a tune on a trumpet over a mountain top lunch. If you’re feeling extravagant, you can also book an air taxi to whisk you to and from the airport.
