Ski Vacations 2010 – The Choice Is Great

Before long winter holidaymakers will be looking at the latest ski holiday brochures to see what is available for 2010, and with the world in economic decline there’s some good bargains to be had, in a great selection of ski holiday resorts.

@ tour www.discountworldhotel.com

Some skiers just want confirmation that the resort they loved last year is still the best place to go of course, while others like to change location every year, experiencing new ski challenges and collecting new stories to relate to their friends back home.

Either way, the choices are abundant and depend mostly on what the skier is comfortable with, whether it is a familiar resort or new ground.

@ Mt Bullet Ski tour (@ tours www.discountworldhotel.com)

If the annual skiing holiday includes beginners, Andorra, nestled in the Pyrenees, is a great choice. The interconnected resorts of Arinsal, Pal and Arcalis offer something for everyone. All three cater to beginner skiers and provide kindergarten facilities for the youngest family members not quite ready to don skis and take the plunge down the bunny slopes.

Arinsal and Pal in Andorra are actually now a single resort linked by cable car. One ski pass allows skiers to venture onto either set of slopes. In effect, wherever you are staying at the resort, you can ski from your backyard right onto the slopes. Snowboarders in Andorra will also feel quite comfortable whether they are beginners or experienced. Arcalis is about 20 kilometers by car from Pal and Arinsal but close enough to be considered part of the three-resort area. A fourth resort, Pas de la Casa, is also close by but tends to be much more crowded. However, it does offer very good value for ski holidays to Andorra if that is the major criteria in selecting a resort. With its numerous cafes, restaurants, happy hours and discos, Pas de la Casa tends to attract the livelier younger adult crowd.

For strictly family ski holidays the Kaprun resort in Austria is a good bet. With its beginner to expert slopes, myriad accommodation to fit every budget, restaurants and cafes, checking into Kaprun is the start of a great family holiday. Hotels and restaurants are noted for their child friendliness. Besides the skiing holidaymakers can snowboard, snowshoe, swim, play tennis and squash, ice skate, bowl and take a sleigh ride. Of the 59 runs, 31 are for beginners, and nine are expert runs.

Shops abound for those who want to take a break from other activities. You can even arrange to tour the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. One of the most welcome features is the short hop from the airport to the resort. Nothing is more tedious for skiers than to get off a plane and have to face a several hour ride to the resort. Not so in Kaprun.

www.discountworldhotel.com

With global warming and the environment a world wide concern, many skiers are beginning to make going green a criteria for their choice of ski holidays. If that is a concern, Les Arcs in France should be on your list of ski destinations. Take the Eurostar from London for example to Bourg-St-Maurice. From there it is a short hop to Les Arcs. The management is actively committed to maintaining preservation of the environment. At the same time the facilities are first rate, including accommodation for the youngest family members. Les Arcs has been awarded the Famille plus Montagne certification. Four star living quarters are the norm, and the restaurants and shops are among the best in the French Alps.

Top 6 Spas in Europe for 2010

If your idea of having the perfect getaway is touring the best spas all over Europe, youre not alone. But how can you visit all of them with so little time? Europe is practically crawling with the excellent spas these days. But because we want you to have the most relaxing spa get away ever, weve come up with a comprehensive list of all the best ones.

Augustine Spa in Prague

Top 6 Spas in Europe for 2010

The Augustine Spa in Prague, Czech Republic, is a four-room spa and salon which takes residence in the Augustine monastery. While its tucked in the Gothic pillars of the building, its also an exceptional first-class spa redesigned by the master hotelier of U.K Rocco Forte.

The spa itself is a bit minimalist, sporting whitewashed walls, arched ceilings which are about a century old, and architecture that generally emanates the old world. The Augustine Spa draws a fine clientele of nobles from Central Europe, Hollywood celebrities, and even local moguls of real estate.

The spas best treatment is the 90-minute beer-based body rub. Have this with a full body massage and youll be rubbing all of your stress away. Other treatments include natural products made from Ila and Anika. The Augustine Spas director Dita Coufalova can also surprise you. Despite her diminutive size, she has the strongest pair of hands in Bohemia.

Aman Spa in Connaught, England

Top 6 Spas in Europe for 2010

Undeniably the best spa in London, England, you should not miss out on the Aman Spa at the Connaught. The spa has a total of five treatment rooms (one designed for couples), a gym, a pool with seductive dark tiles, and minimalist architecture by Jaya Patromo Ibrahim.

Combining the styling principles of Asia and England, Ibrahim used dove-gray Portland stones and pale, honey-tinged oak for the interior. The effect: a very spacious spa which is both luxurious and relaxing. If this isnt zen enough for you, we dont know what is.

The spa draws a classy, understated clientele, especially on weekends. We recommend their one-hour full body massage which includes a heavenly foot massage, submerged crystal treatment, and a head massage you wont have anywhere else.

The only downside here is that the pool cant be accessed by spa customers unless youre also a guest at the hotel. You can also use the pool if you pay the annual spa membership fee.
