The perfect place to switch off? You will find it on a former tea plantation in Sri Lanka. The puristically designed Santani Wellness Resort is quite secluded in a mystical mountain landscape, about an hour by car northeast of Kandy.

No more pre-Christmas stress and finally a holiday! But where to? Our tip: a few days at the Alpin & Relax Hotel Das Gerstl in Vinschgau, a real paradise for skiers, cross-country skiers and all those who love wellness. The four-star Superior House is situated on a magnificent southern slope above Burgeis, from where you have a view over the valleys and the Ötztal Alps. Most beautiful place: the infinity pool with breathtaking views. And the spa with a clay barley, a panorama, a mountain herb and family saunas, with a Vinschger Cercial steam bath and a whirlpool. The rooms? Cosy and chic with lots of wood and colourful highlights.

Small and beautiful: The Dissertori family, owners of the "Lebenskunst-Hotel Schwarzschmied", transformed an old guesthouse, which has been located in the center of the South Tyrolean village of Lana for more than half a millennium, into a very special boutique hotel with a lot of dedication: the 1477 Reichhalter - with eight guest rooms, café and restaurant. Authenticity, simplicity, and coziness were the focus of the careful renovation by South Tyrolean architect Zeno Bampi and interior designer Christina von Berg. Some of the furniture, such as the bedside tables or lamps in the 50s and 60s style in the rooms, was re- or up cycled, even the old doors were preserved, with the original keys. The cuisine? Delicious! Breakfast, small lunches, coffee and especially delicious homemade cakes are served in the rooms of the former mill, bakery and butcher's, of course the menu is seasonal and the ingredients come from local farms in the region.
