5 Winter Getaways for the Holidays
If sipping hot chocolate or an iced cactus cooler sounds like a good way of escaping the frenzy of the holiday season, there’s still plenty of time to plan an escape to a quiet place where you will be pampered, be it in the desert or near a ski lift.
Now that we’ve piqued your interest, please read on for our top five recommended winter getaways.
Four Seasons Hotel Moscow
While a stay in one of the world’s coldest metropolises might sound a bit much, the warmth at the brand new Four Seasons Hotel Moscow makes the city an ideal destination.
Walk across the street (dress warmly!) to Manezhnaya Square and explore the four-story underground shopping mall that features a rotating glass dome that functions as a world clock of the Northern Hemisphere. Inside the hotel, Bystro is open for breakfast and dinner and serves authentic Russian cuisine prepared with what the hotel calls a Nordic twist, while Quadrum, which offers Italian cuisine, is a more formal establishment, with a nonetheless relaxed atmosphere.
Take a taxi to Red October and enjoy the club scene, or party in the Moskovsky Bar, which features live music and a world-class mixologist with new twists on traditional drinks such as the White Russian and Moscow Mule.
At the end of the day, the new Four Seasons Bed is available in firm, soft, and standard, and has GelTouch Foam Center heat-absorption technology that keeps guests cool throughout the night.
