Hot tub with a viewPortillo, Chile
With a Lego-yellow hotel and the snow-covered Andes as a backdrop, the outdoor pool at the world-famous Portillo Ski Resort is one of the coolest (and coldest!) places to get your trunks on.
True, most people come here for the fresh powder and unbeatable runs (Portillo is ranked among the top 10 ski resorts in the world), but we say it’s worth a visit for the hotel pool alone.
It really doesn’t get any better than soaking in a hot tub while you bask in the rugged mountain views and fresh snowfall. Who knows, you might even be tempted to re-create a scene from the documentary film Warren Miller’s Journey and practise extreme ski jumps into the pool – but you didn’t hear that from us.
Fly to Santiago with LATAM Airlines. From there it’s a two-hour journey to reach Portillo Ski Resort.
