What is the most luxurious spa / resort in Switzerland or around?

Planning 2-3 days get away to be pampered and enjoy some well overdue "me" time in December. Looking for a place which has great location, scenery, swimming, must do in this lifetime activities and in general having a couple of awesome days. Where and what would you recommend?

If it is pampering you want then go to Austria, they are the professionals. Early December at season start you can get some killer deals. A lot have great child care but if you don't have kids avoid these! Alpine Rose and Hotel Schwartz are 2 good ones we have visited to use as a baseline to compare facilities.

This is such a relative question, it is impossible to answer !

for activities, maybe look around Lucerne, Vitznau possibly as here you have the boats, Pilatus, Rigi etc

Jungfrau is also in striking distance.

Alternatively Geneve, "The Reserve".....

A couple are here:
http://www.myswitzerland.com/de-ch/e...l?nodeid=25403

Never been to any of these, of course.

From the list, I'd give the Chedi a try.
(If money was a secondary concern - looks like you can blow through a nice amount of money in a weekend... ).

Holidaycheck.ch reviews are raving.

I would go to Vals and visit the Therme, nice architecture, great location and interesting rooms...

Ovronnaz. December would be great as it will have snowed by then. Up to your neck in bubbles with snow around or actually falling is utter bliss.

Re: What is the most luxurious spa / resort in Switzerland or around?

Thanks for all the suggestions. Appreciate this is a personal preference. if a few give same or similar suggestions, that would be very helpful as potentially pretty good. Grateful for taking the time. Let's see what we end up with. Will report back with what we try.
If new suggestions come from now until booking is made, keep them coming.
cheers

Agreed, but Leukerbad is much much easier from Zurich via the Lötschental tunnel.

How about Tuscany- go to Fonteverde in San Casciagno.

It should say +1 (=agreed).
I think.
;-)

It's between Sion and Martigny.

Close to France, but still Switzerland ;-)
