The warmest spas with the coolest views in the world.
Mt Hutt - highest in NZ
The highest altitude spa pool in the country has just opened at Canterbury's Mt Hutt skifield. The six-seater Alpine Spas pool is located at the top of Summit Six chairlift - sitting at a breathtaking 2086m above sea level. On a clear day, you can take in views all the way along the Southern Alps and across the Canterbury Plains to the Pacific Ocean. The spa even includes Bluetooth surround sound and a powerful sub-woofer - we can't think of a better way to soak the muscles after a few runs.
Nimmo Bay Resort, Canada
At this family-owned and operated resort in the middle of British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest, two cedar hot tubs sit alongside a spectacular cascading waterfall. If you're brave enough, you can go for a dip in the chilly waters of the waterfall's "plunge pool" - just keep in mind the warm water nearby and you'll be fine. It's a great way to end a day of wilderness adventures.
L'Apogee Courchevel Ski Chalet
Located in the Le Jardin Aplin Olympic ski mountains in the French Alps, this five-star chalet features a wraparound balcony complete with a hot tub - and an incredible view. The Chalet is a ski-in and ski-out facility, so you can go straight from the slopes and soak.

Amangiri, Utah, US
This remote, luxurious five-star hideaway in the canyons of the American southwest is located in a protected valley in Canyon Point, with incredible sweeping views of the Utah desert. The resort features a slate pool and hot tub, which sit among the towering sandstone formations. It's the ideal way to spend an evening gazing at the stars.
Peninsula Hong Kong hotel
There's nothing like a good soak after a long day of shopping-and at the Peninsula Hong Kong hotel you can sit in a spa with impressive views of the harbour and Hong Kong Island. It's the perfect way to relax and plan your next day out on the town. The hotel itself dates back to 1928 and is consistently ranked as one of the best in the world.
