Rome, ItalyEscape the crowds in the Eternal City without staying out in the sticks and spend your holiday being treated like Roman royalty at the Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel and Spa. Overlooking the impressive domes of the Vatican, you can give the Pope a wave while enjoying a relaxing pedicure. After a busy day of cleansing body wraps and jojoba oil massages, get a good night’s sleep in one of their oppulent suites, surrounded by crystal chandeliers and swathes of rich fabrics. You’ll feel a million miles away from the throngs tourists traipsing the streets below, but you’re not too far away that you can’t pop down to check out Rome’s other famous sights.Read more: 10 most luxurious hotels in Rome3.

There’s nothing like an early morning run along golden beaches to set yourself up for 2015! 4. St. Moritz, SwitzerlandEscape to the famous ski resort in the Swiss Alps without having to exert yourself on the slopes. Swap après-ski for all day chilling in the jacuzzi sipping on champagne – or mineral water for a healthy January detox alternative. Feel like you’ve stepped on to the set of an Agathie Christie whodunnit and experience 1920s glamour with the spectacualr backdrop of the Swiss Alps at The Grand Hotel Kronenhof hotel in Pontresina, near St. Moritz. Built in 1848, this stylish five-star hotel offers Finnish sauna facilities, a stone grotto steam bath and an indoor swimming pool that plays underwater music and offers panoramic views over the glaciers . 5. Bangkok, ThailandIn a city famous for speeding tuk tuks, street food vendors hollering on every corner and tourists chugging Chang, it’s hard to imagine Bangkok as a centre of peace and tranquility. But there are hundreds of temples in the Thai capital which you can retreat to if you need five minutes peace before heading back in to the thick of it. Bangkok is also a great place to indulge in some fabulous spa treatments. Of course, there are plenty of $5 back street options (not all so seedy as they sound and generally good quality). But there are also some more exclusive luxury offerings, including the five-star Grande Centre Point Hotel. Close to the Siam shopping area, spend the day sunning yourself beside the rooftop pool or being spoilt in the hotel’s award winning spa, Rarinjinda, before heading to nearby designer boutiques for some high-end souvenir shopping.Read more: 10 best things to do in Bangkokcenter_img Still recovering from Christmas chaos and New Year’s indulgences?
