I never anticipated the debatable issue of global warming to reach to any conclusion. But use to confide in alternatives and reckon this is the best way out. Albeit the mention of August assures it is seemingly summers and ought to be hot but the splotches of snow, mountain landscape and clichéd snow apparatus used to confirm its winter by cladding in the guise of ill-effects of global-warming.
With glaciers liquefaction and snow attenuation, Alps-based ski resorts tend to stay in front of global warming by converting their resorts with massive spas, sleek construction and other off-slope magnetism. Renowned architects such as Zaha Hadid are engrossed designing high-altitude ski features. Shopping centers are reaching peaks of the mountain. And esteemed hotels likewise the Tschuggen Grand is forming itself into a new avatar offering all-weather resorts by adding a $30 million spa spread over 43,000-square-foot conceptualized by the Swiss architect Mario Botta.
Switzerland is been seen as the benchmark for emerging tourist destinations and the credit goes to its architectural non-ski appeal. There is a lot of praise spreading all over for eco-friendly architect Matteo Thun who designed the spaceship-like InterContinental Resort, which is an elliptical-shaped compound with built-in 186 luxury hotel accommodation, residential apartments, shops, conference rooms and a cosmic spa. Identified as “a new planet,” it would hit the board by 2010.
Not to forget the nascent spas in the vicinity of Austrian Alps. Featured above is an Aqua Dome, a 140-room contemporary spa lodge near the glacier ski resort of Sölden in western Austria. It’s impossible to ignore the three massive tangible bowls that look like al fresco birdbaths. Whilst one is a supersize whirlpool tub, second has a string of massage jumbos, and the third is flowed with saltwater with a submarine music. This dome-topped spa has two more pools and a waterfall. If you wish to dip into the designer pool of the Aqua Dome positioned in Längenfeld (Oberlängenfeld 140, Längenfeld) then you can enjoy that on a drop of 135 euros per person per night.
