Winter’s here, and visions of snow bunny honeymoons are pattering in Bridezilla’s mind like snow spangles on glass. However, if you are thinking of a chic and sophisticated honeymoon in the snow, you might find yourself a little horrified when your vision of chic digs and steamy ski sessions is put to a halt by the reality of most atrocious ski lodges out there.
If, like Bridezilla, you find it impossible to achieve serenity, let alone sexual climax, while in any sort of proximity to crosspoint, plaid or legos color schemes, Bridezilla’s got your back. Here, our ultimate guide to winter honeymoon accommodations that won’t make you feel like you’re getting off at Granny’s House (unless of course you’re acting out that Red Riding Hood fantasy again :).
Three uber-chic ski lodges after the jump, so read on!
1) Sky Lodge, Park City Utah. The Sky Lodge is all chic, no shtick. Or, as the like-minded website puts it “No expense spared. No detail overlooked. No antlers in sight. ” Loves it!
Furthermore, “The Sky Lodge’s bold, eclectic, exquisite suites offer ultra everything: including private radiant-heated decks, outdoor hot tubs, Pearson upholstery throughout, Anachini bedding, Mascioni linens, rare granites, HDTV flat screens in every room, custom Kohler bathrooms. Huge windows bring the sky, the mountainscape, the cityscape right into the room. No expense spared. No detail overlooked. No antlers in sight. Around every corner is another engaging moment.” Uh, you had us at radiant-heated decks. Squee!
2) Chesa Albertini, St. Moritz. If you’re a Bridezilla with an appetite for international adventure, look no further than the swanky town of St. Moritz for your ski bunny honeymoon. The Chesa Albertini (also pictured at the beginning of this entry), a glittering palace built in 1655 and renovated with all the comforts of home, is the perfect storybook blend of quaint old-world and modern sophistication. From a cold plunge pool, champagne and canapes daily, chauffeur service, and an uber-sexy Bond-esque card room (that’s Zilla, Bride-Zilla), it just doesn’t get any more stylish than a ski honeymoon in St. Moritz. Able to house sixteen why not rent it all for a destination wedding?
3) Crested Butte, Canadian Rockies. What better place for a Bridezilla to honeymoon than the land of BareNaked Ladies? If you’re looking for an exotic honeymoon without the language barrier, the Crested Butte is a perfect choice. Maybe we’re behind the times, but we still cannot get over the coolness of boutique ski lodges. The chic-rustica just does us in. Once inside, the fabulous Pearl Honeymoon Suite is everything a ski bunny Bridezilla could dream of. Panoramic mountain views, white muslin drapes, plush ivory carpet, comfy overstuffed furniture and a romantic canopied bed. The overall effect is austere, sensual, and utterly bridal. What takes this suite from sexy to spectacular: the greenhouse enclosing and sunken hot tub. Exquise!
