The Sebastian Vail
Rustic Meets Ravishing
What it is
A new, cozy hideaway geared towards snow bunnies and adventurers (the ski valet becomes a bike valet come summer).
What it isn't
Adults-only. Kiddo-oriented thrills include a Tykes Room complete with a karaoke stage and a camp that’s perfected the art of avoiding the dreaded “I’m bored” (activities may include making snow slime and cooking classes complete with mini chef outfits).
What we think
Luxury hotels can get a reputation for—well, we’ll just say it—stuffiness. The Sebastian tries hard to maintain blissful pampering with unbridled fun, as evidenced by their Sebastian Sunday Funday brunch (bottomless Bloody Marys and buttermilk silver dollar pancakes with Geauga County maple syrup are just the beginning). The merrymaking continues in the heated pool, where waterfalls flow forth just like they do in adjacent mountain springs and they’ve thoughtfully arranged two adults-only hot tubs for true chillaxation. Did we mention the pool menu includes Moet & Chandon ice pops? See: fun.
You're here because
The Sebastian’s spa is Colorado-inspired (you can add Colorado-sourced CBD-oil to your massages, natch).
You’ve had your share of après-ski revelry. Who could forget that night of tabletop, ski-booted dancing in Gstaad? But tonight at the hotel’s Frost Bar will go down in history as your favorite, because you’ve never before encountered such a divine post-slalom menu. Your order: piping hot churros with house-made dulce de leche and a frothy Mother of Dragons cocktail (Belvedere peach nectar vodka, lemon, egg white, and all manner of deliciousness).
Across from the slopes in Vail Village, just a 9 minute stroll from Gondola One.
