2. The Dolder Grand, Zurich, Switzerland
It’s tough to convince yourself that you’re still in Zurich as your car pulls up to the Dolder Grand, the fairy-tale castle slash retreat resort, perched on the top of the city with views of Lake Zurich. Then, there’s the 36-foot-long, 11-foot-high Andy Warhol classic Big Retrospective Painting that hangs above the reception desk, Fernando Botero’s Women with Fruit sunbathing by the pool, and Marc Quinn’s sensual Archaeology of Desire. And if you wander off to the modern Norman Foster-designed wing, the swanky 4,000-square-metre spa offers everything from a sunaburo (Japanese sand bath) to variations of aromatic steam baths – sure to restore your body back to its natural rhythm.
