The Lodge

Let's give Caesar what's Caesar's and start with the famous Swiss Alps, which host some of the best winter sports slopes in the world. One of the most luxurious accommodation units in the many mountain resorts of the country is simply called The Lodge and belongs to the well-known entrepreneur Richard Branson. Located in the village of Verbier in the canton of Valais, the nine-bedroom villa features an indoor pool, hot tubs, and a team of 13 employees, including a SPA therapist, an activity coordinator, and a series of Michelin-starred chefs. The billionaire says he chose to invest in this real estate because it was "love at first sight", and The Lodge is, in fact, one of his favourite places for an escape from the daily routine.

Park Hyatt Beaver Creek

The Hyatt name is already synonymous with luxury, and the company's Vail Valley resort in the Rocky Mountains, Colorado, is no exception. The hotel has 177 premium rooms with balconies, from where guests have a spectacular view of the ridges, and 23 suites with kitchenette and fireplace. Common facilities include a heated outdoor pool, campfire area, several Jacuzzis, golf course, fitness room, and SPA centre.

Cheval Blanc Chourchevel

Candlelight movie nights, a three-Michelin-star restaurant, cashmere blankets, contemporary-style rooms with a mix of materials and bright colours, a pool, sauna, and jacuzzi are just some of the features of Cheval Blanc Chourchevel, located in the Trois Vallées region of the French Alps. The Cheval Blanc Group also has premium accommodation units in Paris, Saint Tropez, St-Barth Isle de France and Randheli (Maldives).

Yellowstone Club

If you want to have a similar holiday experience with the likes of billionaire Bill Gates, Ben Affleck, or Justin Timberlake, Yellowstone Club in the American state of Montana is the right place. But get ready for the right prices too, because to become the owner of an apartment in this exclusive community you have to take out of your pocket a few million dollars, but also a registration fee of USD 300,000. The benefits of such an investment include private ski facilities, 16 restaurants with different specifications, a luxury wellness centre, golf courses, and much more. Let's not forget the proximity to the first national park in the world, Yellowstone, with its beautiful lakes, rivers, canyons, and mountain ranges.

Carpathian Lodge Măgura

Romania does not lack premium chalets for short escapades in the heart of nature. Among them is the boutique hotel Carpathian Lodge Măgura, recently included in the portfolio of One United Properties. Surrounded by over 50 hectares of forest, the unit is located in a picturesque area of Buzău County. Tourists who cross its threshold benefit from the SPA centre and the services of a private chef and a sommelier, both from the team that serves fine dining restaurants in the Le Manoir group. In the future, even an organic vegetable garden will be set up here.
