YTL Hotels and Champalimaud Design meticulously restored two landmark limestone buildings (one a former hospital) into a thoroughly modern, 99-room retreat. Inside, black four-posters, neck-craningly high ceilings, and a distinguished color scheme of dusky mustard and heritage blue are a soothing, pared-down precursor to the pièce de résistance: the spa village. The hotel is built directly above mineral-rich thermal springs, allowing guests to make like the Romans and simply float in three heated pools, or go 21st-century with a Watsu treatment and aromatherapy massage. Don’t miss the signature drink: hot cocoa with a cardamom kick.
