GREAT Getaway!!! A review of Minerals Resort & Spa
My husband and I needed a little ski vacation away from the kids. Another couple we know had recently gone on a ski trip and had a blast! We decided to take their advice and stay where they stayed. They stayed for a weekend at Minerals Hotel last February. So my husband booked us for a weekend there too.
First, we booked a Luxury room for a weekend in January. We got there and the room was ready for us to get into right away. Since we got there at about 12:00pm, I wasn't expecting it to be ready, but it was. We went to the room and it was beautiful. Fireplace, balcony, a view... Perfect!
After we unpacked we went to the pools. The inside pool was the perfect temperature, and there was a cave at the deep end. I could picture my kids playing in there, but they weren't with us. :-) Than we swam from inside, through an exit way into the outdoor heated pool. Talk about relaxation! We sat in the pool on the ledge, neck deep in hot water and completely melted away!
We decided to go to dinner, so we asked the girl at the front desk for a really good restaurant. She suggested Latour, which was right up the road. She made reservations for us and everything. When my husband and I got to the restaurant, we were amazed by the view!!! Absolutely BREATHTAKING! The food was even more amazing. The setting of the restaurant was like no other. And the wine list, incredible!
When we left, we decided to go back to the heated out side pool. My husband and I were the only ones out there. It was so quiet and peaceful, I can't even describe how relaxing. Almost as relaxing as the massage I got the next day at the hotel's spa, Elements.
The whole experience was just amazing. Highly HIGHLY recommended!!!
