Our Platinum hotels really set the bar high. They’ve all got a TUI rating of four and above, and have been handpicked for their superb locations and high-quality facilities, like spas and à la carte dining. And you’ll also get a bigger luggage allowance on TUI flights. Here are three of our favourite Lakes & Mountains picks for a luxury holiday in Europe.
Right in the centre of Zell am See and just a short walk from the lakefront, the Hotel Tirolerhof combines stylish sophistication with friendly hospitality from the Posch family. The chalet-style building is decorated with flower-filled balconies and surrounded by pretty gardens. Its luxurious spa is perfect for a little me-time, with its indoor pool, saunas and a relaxation room. And when you want to get out and about, you can join the weekly guided walks or set off by yourself to explore the Hohe Tauern mountains and the shores of Lake Zell. When you get back, you’ll find afternoon snacks to keep you going until dinner – which is full of dishes made with fresh, regional produce.
This thermal spa hotel is all about relaxation, so it’s no wonder it’s one of our top places to stay on the south of Lake Garda. It’s got a contemporary feel throughout, with chic restaurants and bars, a spacious reception lounge and large, comfortable bedrooms – many of which have lake views. The sense of luxury carries on into the wellness area, from the indoor pool with whirlpools and fountains, to the tempting menu of treatments. And outside, there are five more pools set among palms and olive trees in the peaceful gardens.
The Caesius is just across the road from Lake Garda, outside the pretty village of Cisano. It’s a 30-minute lakeside stroll into Bardolino’s lively centre, with its restaurants, shops and excellent transportation links to other towns around the lake.
The Regina Adelaide has a prime location on the waterfront promenade in Garda town, one of the must-see destinations on the lake. And you’re just steps away from the cobbled streets and pavement cafés in the medieval centre.
Spend your time relaxing by the hotel’s outdoor pool or head indoors to the wellness area to make the most of the pool, sauna, steam room and treatments. Then sit back in the hotel’s lounge or unwind in the elegant American Bar, before a gourmet dinner in the à la carte restaurant – paired with garden views and a bottle of wine from the well-stocked cellar. On balmy summer mornings, there’s no better way to start the day than with an al fresco breakfast on the terrace.
